Manly Mondays - Ted Baker Redbridge Review

Monday, 1 February 2016

Hello everyone, 

It’s time for another Manly Monday! This week we have been trying out the Ted Baker Redbridge gift set of an antiperspirant and body wash. Yet again a gift from Christmas, the packaging is gorgeous with a copper and grey theme, making it a definite winner with me. Mr.Gingersnap tried these out over the course of a week so we have combined all his daily thoughts into one big post. Now onto the products themselves :-) 

He thought that the deodorant, while nice was more aimed at an office worker, he said he “felt he should be wearing a suit with it”. I suppose that is the target market of Ted Baker, it is a more high end product, being considered a luxury brand. He felt that it was good, but not as good as the previous Champneys Sport deodorant at keeping him smelling fresh at the end of the day. It is less of a functional product, acting more as a post-shower fragrance. The scent is very sweet, smelling almost edible, but becomes cloying when combined with physical work. Mr.Gingersnap wanted to give this product 2/5 stars for functionality, but 4.5/5 stars as a scent. 

As a body wash the scent is more appropriate as it is lighter and works better with water. It lathers up well and is quite refreshing. The scent lingers long after the shower. Whilst he originally thought it reminded him of cinnamon, he has since changed his mind to vanilla…men never read the labels. The label states that it is infused with pink pepper, cardamon, tobacco and vanilla. It is less of a distinctly manly scent and he found it slightly too sweet and spicy for his usual tastes, giving it 3.5/5 stars. 

Overall he found the spray didn’t live up to it’s claim of 48hour activity, but would be nice for someone in a less physical job. The shower gel was more of a hit and he went so far as to say that he would consider re-purchasing it for himself as a treat. The duo goes well together and would make a lovely gift, but he would prefer a slightly more refreshing smell. 

Have you guys tried this? Let me know what you think in the comments below :-)
