Is bruvy Credible?
Bruvy takes into account all skin types. Allegedly not all guys are aware of their skin-type. That is the reason bruvy provides solutions to serve all men, alike. Made of the best plant-based ingredients that nature can offer, bruvy helps you take better care, by providing assisted guidance on your fingertips and at your convenience. Bruvy has made all its products sustainable, fragrance-free & plant-based to avoid issues with sensitive skin & other allergies.
The cherry on top is that the products are alcohol-free, vegan & cruelty-free, that means quality to you and the environment. There’s another layer of credibility added with the knowledge that its manufacturers are equally the consumers of the products. Co-founder Dining says that Bruvy is pronounced “bruh-vee,” which is slang for brother. The company aims at becoming a cool older brother to guys. The CEO believes that men, in general, lacked an authority figure in their life to enlighten them about skincare and how to take care of various skin types.
