Created by Angelic Matthews, SLICK & BOSS is a brand dedicated to bringing men the most comfortable shave. Born out of a desire to help the men in her life enjoy the shaving process, SLICK & BOSS is Matthews’ natural and organic brain child aimed at helping men of all ethnicities combat nicks, razor bumps and irritation during our shaving routines. I’ve had the chance to try out a few of the products from SLICK & BOSS and wanted to share my first impressions with all of you. Check it out!
Ultra Calming Shave Creme: This shave cream is silky smooth, absorbs well and has a nice refreshing scent. After several trials with the product, I came to the conclusion that I wish it were thicker as I had to be a bit heavy-handed with the product to get the coverage I needed. That being said, it is much improved from using traditional shaving foams and gave me a cleaner and closer shave than the majority of gels and creams you will find on drugstore shelves. 3/5
Clean and Crispy Hairline Tonic: Think of the stinging sensation you get after that fresh barber shave or cut…did you ever wonder what that stuff was? I still don’t know what it is, but what I do know is that the Clean and Crispy Hairline Tonic doesn’t sting anything like that stuff. That being said, I didn’t notice any difference in my skin’s texture of clarity after using the tonic. Unfortunately, I just didn’t see or feel a benefit from it. 2/5
Aftershock Face Lotion: Having a daily moisturizer is essential for every guy and Slick & Boss’ Aftershock Face Lotion is effective in providing daily moisture. With a creamy texture, this lotion is easy to apply and dissolves very quickly. And, it left my skin feeling pretty smooth after each use. I can’t speak to its effectiveness of preventing razor bumps and acne as I only tried a sample, but I would say it’s worth a shot. My only real qualm about this product is that the lotion also has Alpha Hydroxy Acid which can cause irritation, especially for those with sensitive skin. 3/5
Intense Night Therapy Mask: In my opinion, the Intense Night Therapy Mask is definitely a stand out product. I have to admit that initially, I was a bit apprehensive of trying a mask as if was something I had never done before. Granted, I’ve used “fancy” fash washes before but never a mask! This product is aptly named and was definitely intense the first time I used it. With a distinct pumpkin scent, I got a little burning sensation when I first tried this (which is indicated on the bottle) but didn’t experience that with subsequent uses. I did not experience any physical manifestations of the irritation. It left my face feeling clean and smooth. I think this one is definitely worth a shot! 3.5/5
