Jack Black Men’s Grooming Care Review

I received 4 items from the Jack Black’s Men Grooming Line. Adam needed something to help him. His face hair grows back so fast and so thick that it’s hard to keep it in line. He shaves and within the next day, he has stubbles again. I figured if we could get something that helped to smooth the hair down that maybe it would help him.

Industrial Strength Hand Healer with Vitamins A & E 4002

Industrial Strength Hand Healer

This rich, non-greasy formula contains Vitamin A and E and Eucalyptus to heal heal and soothe dry, chapped, cracked hands. Any guy who works will appreciate the heavy-duty benefits. Macadamia Nut Oil penetrates and improves unsightly cuticles. The PureScience Formula licks in nature’s best-using healing botanicals and organic ingredients, with no parabens, fragrance or colorants.

To use: apply a nickel size amount to hands and cuticles anytime they feel dry or rough.

My Thoughts*

Adam works all day using his hands. He is a foreman for a tree-trimming service in our area as well as Northern Tennessee. He is used to having rough hands, and would never even think about using one of my lotions that tend to smell like brown sugar, flowers, or anything that smells like a woman.

There aren’t many men care/grooming products on the market. Not many that actually appeal to men anyway. Adam seemed to like this. Although there isn’t a fragrance listed, you can smell the natural products in this. It smells manly..

Because of the sunflower seed and Vitamin A & E, it is a natural skin healer and soother. The vitamins are natural skin smoothers, and help to keep the skin soft and from cracking. He says it even stays on after he washes his hands!

Supreme Cream Triple Cushion® Shave Lather with Macadamia Nut Oil & Soy 1009

Supreme Clean- Triple Cushion Shave Lather

Supreme Cream provides a rich, luxurious lather that lifts whiskers up, away from the skin for a smooth, ultra-close shave. Triple cushion technology, with three protective, hydrating layers of Macadamia Nut oil, Glycerin and Soybean oil, means super close razor glide and a superior cushion of protection against razor burn, irritation, nicks, and cuts. The PureScience formula is paraben-free, colorant-free, fragrance-free, and dermatologist tested.

My Thoughts*

This looks like a fancy looking whip cream that shines. Adam put this on before shaving and there wasn’t any knicks, cuts, or razor burn at all. I was amazed at how well this worked and how little he had to use. He used about a quarter sized dollop and it spread over his entire 5 O’Clock shadow and the strays.

The razor seemed to just glide over it without any mishaps. He said that this worked better than any shaving cream that he had used, including name brands. When he buys shaving cream, he goes through it in no time. His hair grows WAY too fast, so he has to shave almost every day.

Not only did this products work well, but it gave him a closer and smoother shave, so he didn’t have to shave as much and risk razor burn, ingrown hairs, or missed spots.

I liked that he loved using this. Even the packaging looks manly in it’s deep blue coloring and white lettering. We will definitely be buying these products again in the future!

Face Buff Energizing Scrub with Vitamin C & Menthol 1008

Face Buff Energizing Scrub

Face Buff deep-cleans and smoothes your skin, clearing the way for a closer, easier shave. Menthol and Vitamin C wake up tired skin. Small scrubbing particles open congested pores and sweep away deep-down oil, dirt and dead 85skin cells, helping to prevent ingrown hairs and minimize shaving irritation.

To use: apply a dime-size amount of Face Buff to wet face and work around in circles. Don’t rub too hard- the power of the scrub is built in. Rinse with warm water. Use 3-4 times a week before shaving.

My thoughts*

This is an extremely nice buffer and deep cleanser for men. Adam doesn’t use this everyday like the Daily Facial cleanser, but he does use it quite often. Not only does this clean extremely well, but it’s like an exfoliator for men.

Adam really needed this. He works outside all day in the heat, so naturally he sweats like something awful. He uses this to get the deep down dirt and old skin off so that he doesn’t have blackheads or breakouts from the oil.

This is a liquidy type of buffer, and you can feel the cleanser beads inside it. This is what exfoliates the skin and gets all the dirt out. He only needs a dime size amount to get his entire face clean.

It smells amazing as well. His skin feels so smooth and smells so completely clean. The thing about this is, you aren’t supposed to scrub really hard because the scrub part is built in with the beads!

This is supposed to be 3-4 times a week before shaving (and before you use the shave lather). It reduces the amount of ingrown hairs that grow as well as helps reduce razor irritation and burns.

Adam said it worked extremely well, and that he liked the smell of it. It smells like menthol, but it does help to perk up the skin and reduce redness and irritation as well as razor burns. It is also awesome at helping get the closest shave that a man can manage. This helps keep their hair from growing back too fast and reduces the amount of times they have to shave each week.

Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser with Aloe & Sage Leaf 2005

Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser

Pure Clean is a unique 2-in-1 facial cleanser and toner that removes deep-down dirt and oil for a clear, smooth, shave-ready skin.  Formulated with sulfate-free surfactants derived from coconut and oat, the rich lather gently cleanses without over-drying. Leaves skin clean, hydrated and fresh.

PureScience Formulas lick in nature’s best to please even the most sensitive skin-using a blend of naturally derived surfactants and certified organic ingredients, with no parabens, fragrance or colorants. And, always dermatologist tested.

Adam has used this every single day for over a month, and he still has almost an entire bottle. I was amazed when I picked it up to clean the counter, how heavy the bottle still was. He said he didn’t need very much at all to wash his face.

He comes every day and washes his face and hair and then showers either right after or if he has to go to the post office to turn in his paper work, after he gets back. So he was glad to have something that works easily and quickly.

Regular soap dries his face out, so he was usually using either my face wash or body wash. He gets woodchips, dust, and grime all over his face and in his hair.

I was excited to give him these treats, because he deserves something that he can use that looks and smells manly. He was using whatever he could grab at the time to get his face clean and all the woodchips and dust off, so I put this right by the sink.

He likes it and has religiously stuck to using it daily. He really likes it, and I am glad he likes it. This gently cleans his face without leaving it oily (like when he was using the body wash), or leaving it dried out (when he used the bar soap). This is a rich lathered face wash that washes clean and leaves his face smooth!

I am glad that these products are sulfate-free and are certified organics. They are also made in the United States, which is also a plus to me. There aren’t any chemicals or fragrances either. Although you can smell the natural products inside the products.

I really loved all of these products. I didn’t USE them, but Adam did and he did nothing but praised them. He told all his friends about them, and seemed to want to keep using them for cleansing AND shaving.

Men need something to add to their grooming without smelling “all girly” as Adam says. He enjoyed using the products and I’m excited that he found something that he liked!
