Really glad at StylePilot to have received the Tesei SP-5084-11 from Spinnaker to review.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Updated and improved upon, the Tesei Titanium is now available as a bracelet. A host of subtle but important upgrades make this timepiece a true tribute to the spirit and ingenuity of Italian Naval legend Teseo Tesei.
True to its militaristic inspiration, the dial is designed to be efficient and effective at offering a clear cut read out of time. The hands in particular have been redesigned and upgraded with layerings of X-1 Swiss Super-LumiNova.
The Tesei case is forged out of the tensile strength but low density of Titanium. Hardened with Nitrogen and topped with a Ceramic inlaid bezel with luminous markings, every element of the design and fabrication has been carefully considered. A scratch resistant sapphire lens with anti-reflective coating makes this an effortless, durable and robust timepiece to wear for all conditions.
Powering and assuring an ever reliable performance from the Tesei, an NH35 Seiko Automatic lies at the heart of the watch.
By taking advantage of the incredible properties of Titanium, the upgraded Tesei is now a bracelet timepiece which offers a lightweight feel but with the neccessary strength to resist the conditions of a rugged wear at sea or on land.
WATER RESISTANCE : 20 ATM / WARRANTY : 2 Years International

Finding the right time of protein for your training can be pretty daunting. Well, it has been for me!
So, let’s start with some basic knowledge.
Why should I use protein powder?
If you train hard and regularly then adding a protein powder to your nutritional regime will help you repair and build muscle. Boosting your protein intake through a powder format is the easiest way to do so. There is a wide range of different types and flavours of protein powders so there is something for everyone.
How often, and at what tome of the day, should I have some protein shakes?
It is recommended to take some no more than once a day either 30 minutes before or after exercise.
How to use protein powder?
Protein powder can be used/consumed in many different ways. It can be mixed with water to form a drink or added to a morning shake or you can also add protein powder to a multitude of food recipes such as pancakes or porridge.
This was for the basics, now let’s have a closer look at each one of them…

You might have seen Danny Gray the founder of War paint For Men brand on Dragon’s Den. They are the new make up brand for men! They are on a mission: “Giving men the ability to feel confident in their own skin”.
War Paint For Men is breaking the stigma that makeup is solely for women and make it the accepted norm that men wear makeup. Giving men the ability to feel confident in their own skin. They are here to change the face of the men’s makeup industry.
So, really pleased here to get to try it!
War Paint For Men offers a range of tinted moisturisers, foundations, bronzers and make up tools for the everyday man. Their make-up products are UK produced, cruelty free, vegan ingredients that are designed specifically for sensitive male skin.
Got a chance to review the Tinted Moisturiser and the Concealer (pictured below).
Some Interesting stats
One in four men is expected to be wearing makeup by 2023.
Male skin is 25% tougher than female skin.
The Tinted Moisturiser
Compared to a traditional tinted cream, which would be just a cream with a very light tint, our TINTED MOISTURISER is a foundation, moisturizer, and concealer skincare product all in one. It does a good job of all of these so is a great product to quickly apply and go.
FOUNDATION V TINTED MOISTURISER? FOUNDATION is typically thicker and provides more coverage. TINTED MOISTURISER is typically light and while it can conceal blemishes, it typically won’t cover major scars or blemishes.
Concealer is a cream base which you can use to hide dark under-eye circles, spots, large pores, and other small blemishes visible on the skin. It is similar to foundation, but a lot thicker so it can cover unwanted imperfections.
Concealer is ideal to use on its own if you would just like to cover your spots or under-eye circles.
War Paint For Men’s collection includes cleansing tools, brushes and sponges, as well as a makeup range that spans five shades to suit all skin types, with a handy shade finder tool available on the website to ensure you find your best fit. In addition, sets such as the Night Out.
All War Paint For Men products are consistently tested, re-tested, sliced and diced in order to reach an end result that is simple to apply, light to touch and weightless on skin. The range is also entirely UK produced, cruelty free and vegan, with plans already in motion to move to an all-natural model in the near future.
