Firstly welcome back and thank you for all your feedback / comments / likes and shares on my last post, Hence why I’m going to tell you my other must have skin product its from “Jack Black” (Not the actor) its called Double-Duty Face Moisturizer which I’ve been using since May 2017, Have not looked back since… Guys looking for something new or girls for your partners Christmas gift? Needs a try trust me, Before I get into what I love about it so much here’s more about the product:
“Ideal for daily use, this lightweight moisturizer is an advanced facial treatment product with a built in sunscreen, SPF 20.
The emollient formula visibly improves skin’s overall appearance and provides lasting hydration without oiliness or heaviness. Contains potent antioxidants and vitamins, and offers broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection to help shield skin from premature aging due to sun exposure”
Like I mentioned I been using it for around 7 months now, I’m always up for trying and experimenting new products hearing about the reviews and other peoples stories I gave it ago, After cleansing the face, using serum and Solid Water Essence (Previous post) I apply this light weight moisturizer to my face, A pump and 1/2 I use and that’s enough for my face and neck, It sinks in and smells great I like have products that smell like cream which it does in a manly way.
Within seconds it’s in your skin soaked up, and smoothness after it just terrific, Specially now winter is around the corner, my skin suffers from the cold goes dry and tight this is been helping me easily, and it stays moist pretty much all day, I’m always running around doing this for The Scott McGlynn Show 8 hours later still feeling and looking good! People tend to forgot that car heating and central heating cause a lot more damage to the skin by drying out, and if your like me blasting the heaters in your car to 30 degrees.
Also if your a shaver and use the blade along your skin, Which causes dryness, and damaging the Double-Duty Face Moisturizer will help get the oils and moisture back into your skin.
I Rate Double-Duty Face Moisturizer 5/5

So you are all aware that I don’t do many Q&A interviews because of the podcast show, So i decided to talk to you about my skin care favorites, over the next few posts I be telling my new and old skin care besties, Lets kick it off with Lab Series brand new product Solid Water Essence, Before I give my review here’s what you need to know about the product…

New Solid Water Essence. For an energised appearance in the moment and more youthful-looking skin over time: Hydrate. Energise. Boost.
Now you have some insight what it is and what it does, I’m going to share with you what thoughts,
I been using it twice a day morning and evening for around 9 days, All of you know how strict I am with my skincare routine! After cleansing my skin (I going through vary ones at the moment) I use about 2/3 pumps of Solid Water Essence starting at my forehead going to my eyebrow area, into my cheeks then lips and neck, it honestly goes a long way, It drys so quickly i don’t think i uses a product that drys this quick, and it feel it gets sucked into the skin and feels actually fresh! Its strange saying it as everyone’s says that BUT guys honestly try it and then you know what I’m talking about, I have used other Lab Series products over 2 years nearly, I have the ones I love and some I don’t but Solid Water Essence when all finished I be re buying it! Its a 150ml bottle so not till next year.
I am actually going to my partner a bottle as winter is coming and the air will be dry and that causes tightness and wrinkles we defiantly don’t want that! Ladies if your looking for a guys gift this Christmas highly recommend it!
RRP of £39 at https://www.labseries.co.uk/
The night spent at Aaron Wise Cardiff, Wales UK.
One word WOW!! Myself and my partner got invited to spend one night at these gorgeous apartments, We were lucky to have the One Bedroom Deluxe Suite.
Arriving at the apartments was very easy, I park right by the there, with 30 second walk, It was only £8 which is cheap for Cardiff central, The apartment was on the top floor, and it was stunning, modern, clean, fresh I felt like I was at home in my own apartment!
Having all the essentials there including Fridge, Toast, Bathrobes, Towels, Elemis goodies, and even a coffee machine! ALSO one thing I was very happy about was the ICE in the freezer!
We did go about for a few drinks in the evening, the walk to town was 5-10 minutes at your on St Mary Street, Literally its just over the bridge and your there in the central, So no taxi or busses necessary.
I slept so comfortably nothing disturbed me, I like to say “Out Like A Light” which what happened, People think staying by the city its going to be busy / noisy but honestly it wasn’t at all! I woke up forgetting where I am! The shower I wanted to take home.. It was so nice!!!! Its 3 things I look for when I stay away …
- Good Bed
- Good Shower
- Tea and Coffee
Aaron Wise Apartments derived this and much more… I highly recommend them.

Daniel has noticed big changes in the music industry since he began recording 6 years ago. In the beginning of his career, producers tried to force their vision of what he needed to act, dress and sound like. Fearing his music would lose it’s identity, Daniel resolved to remain true to his artistry.
Daniel Quoted “The freedom to express myself honestly is what makes me relatable.”
I met up with Daniel, To see more about his career, LGBT, and who would he love to perform with…
Scott: How did it all come about getting into music?
Daniel: There isn’t one specific answer to this. It was more of an affinity I’ve always had. Since I was 6 years old, I was fascinated with Pop culture and music. My first cassette was Madonna’s “The Immaculate Collection.” Shortly after, my first CD was Britney’s first album “Baby, One More Time.”
When I was 8, I wrote my first song entitled “Clouds.” It won the school literary contest. Shortly after, Madonna’s “Evita” came out and I started singing “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” and my mom took notice of my voice. I started lessons then eventually auditioned for one of the top performing arts magnet schools in the country and I was admitted for my freshman year of high school. After high school, I was in college for 5 minutes and I realized that school wasn’t going to teach me how to achieve Pop stardom, so I dropped out. I started working with producers, emailing everyone imaginable and the rest is history!
Scott: Your new EP “Beautiful” tell me about it?
Daniel: My single “Beautiful” is all about empowerment and plain fun!
At the moment, we live in an extremely divided country. We all need to express our individuality and let ourselves go. It’s about liberation, originality, sex and all the things that make us up as human beings. Confidence is the theme!
Scott: Whats your ideas of the music video for this song?
Daniel: My ideas for the video are grunge, downtown Pop. I want to get some dirt on my boots and just have a good time. Whether it’s being pushed around in a shopping cart or using the concrete urban backdrops of Miami, this video will be an expression of how I’m currently feeling.
Scott: Being a gay music artist, Do you or have you found its hard to break the industry?
Daniel: Not at all! I think we live in a time where being gay has no influence or negative cloud over a commercial career. While there is still work to be done as far as equality is concerned, the commercial market has made being gay a much more mainstream topic. At the end of the day, I’m an artist, not just a “gay artist.” Whether a male artist says “boy” or “girl” in his music, It can still resonate with many different people. I personally don’t shy away from being myself.
Scott: Whats your thoughts on Disney and kids movies bringing out LGBT characters?
Daniel: I personally considered Disney’s movement on the equality front groundbreaking! I respect their fearless expression of all different kinds of people, regardless of the backwards, negative opinions of those who may not understand. Disney embodies what it is to be inclusive. It is telling all those little boys and girls who may not have the proper support systems that they are not freaks. They are beautiful just the way they are! That’s the most important message we can deliver.
Scott: What music did your grow up on?
Daniel: A lot of Pop! Madonna, Britney and Mariah Carey were the artists who inspired me to become who I am today. They are responsible for helping me find my talent and discovering that I had a voice.
Scott: If you could perform with anyone who would it be and why?
Daniel: Currently, my two main picks would be Lady Gaga and JoJo. Both of these woman express themselves and use their talent as they see fit. They make no apologies and stay completely true to themselves. As far as males, my first pick would have to be Zayn. In my opinion, he is one of the greatest voices and songwriters of our time. His voice is once in a generation.
Scott: Whats your plans for the summer of 2017?
Daniel: My plans for the summer of 2017 are getting over to the UK to perform and break the market. That is my current goal!
