I normally use this kind of posts to introduce you to new brands that I have recently discovered. This is not the case of this post in particular, though. Today I am going to be talking about a brand that you may already know and that I have mentioned in the past. The brand is Murdock London. Does it ring a bell to you? I actually reviewed their Sea Salt Spray a while ago as some of you may recall – you can check it out here – and I still love it.
They have recently changed the way their rage looks. In my opinion, they have adapted it to the needs and aesthetic men have nowadays. As you can see in the photos included in this post, they have chosen a minimalistic design. The main colour is dark blue, which looks absolutely amazing in my opinion. I also love the fact that the products feel much more luxurious when you touch them or even just have a look at them. Even though they have changed externally, the products themselves have not changed much, which is totally okay because they were very good already.
The first product I’m going to talk about is their Matt Mud clay. I actually think its texture is more similar to a cream than to an actual clay, although it is made of the latter according to its ingredients, obviously. I think the hold is quite good and it definitely has the matte finish I always go for. Even though it is not as strong as some other products out there, it does its job and it lasts for quite a while. I would say it works really well as a styling product, but I strongly recommend that you use it as a pre-styling one too. The main reason for this is that it’s very soft and easy to apply, and it will give you a lot of volume. In general, I loved it.
To be honest, this is the most expensive shaving cream I have ever owned. I always choose the most affordable option and get some cheap shaving gels, but I think I should change that. Murdock’s shaving cream is very good if you are looking for a really close shave because it softens your hair and prepares it for the razor. This is not the most important thing when it comes to this kind of products, but it smells extremely good. The whole range actually smells as nice, although I don’t know how to describe the scent so that you get the idea. You’ll have to test it out yourself. Overall, it is a great product and totally worth the investment.
This is the first product that caught my attention from the new range, mainly because of how sexy the packaging looks. In fact, as I said at the beginning, the whole range looks very luxurious and aesthetically pleasing. When it comes to the moisturiser itself, I think it just works. It nourishes your skin making it feel very soft and hydrated. You only need two pumps each time you use it – they recommend day and night – which is quite a small amount. It’s suitable for all skin types and it absorbs instantly. Moreover, I love it when moisturisers are non-greasy, and this one ticks that box as well.
You’ve got their products available at Maleskin and also on their own website. I would strongly recommend that you give them a try. Moreover, Murdock London also has several barber shops around London. Unfortunately, I have never been able to test their services, although it looks like they are very good at hairstyling and grooming. Have you ever been to any of their shops? Let me know what you think of the brand in the comments or on social media.
