Created in 2000, Jack Black is a popular men’s skin care brand which emphasizes the use of plant extracts and herbs in indulgent formulations designed to keep men’s skin care fresh and simple. Recently, I had the chance to sample part of the line up and wanted to give you all my first impression of the line. Read on for more!
Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser: One of my favorite things about this product has to be the smell. The Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser is made with aloe and sage which gives this cleanser a fresh yet earthy smell which is perfect for the warmer months. I enjoyed using the product but found the consistency to be a bit too thin for me. A 6 oz. tube will run you a hefty $18. MANE MAN’s rating 3/5.
Intense Therapy Lip Balm: This is one of my favorites from the sample pack. The great thing about the lip balm is that it comes in different flavors and formulations for those with the most discerning taste. I used the Natural Mint and Shea Butter Balm and it has proven to be a great choice for the Spring months. Plus, you get a little tingle from the mint everytime you use it. It’s seriously good stuff and no wonder this balm won Esquire’s Award in 2007 for Best Balm. A .25 oz. tube retails for $7.50. MANE MAN’s rating 4/5.
All Over Wash: This one was probably my least favorite of the bunch. While I enjoyed the scent, I felt that the product didn’t really deliver the moisture and gentle cleansing properties touted on the bottle. It wasn’t bad per se, it just left me expecting more. MANE MAN’S rating 2/5.
Double Duty Face Moisturizer: This award winning moisturizer is,by far, my favorite of the bunch! The Double Duty Face Moisturizer can only be described as an essential tool in any man’s arsenal. First off, the smell is awesome. It’s fresh and light and instantly made me long for beach time in the Summer. Is it July yet?! Made with Algae Extract and Sea Kelp, this moisturizer is simply smooth, uber light and easily distributes (even over a 5 o’clock shadow). Did I mention it provides broad spectrum protection for both UVA and UVB rays? Well done Jack Black, well done. MANE MAN’s rating 5/5.
