Insight Shampoo & Conditioner

What is it?
Insight Daily use Shampoo and Conditioner are a Salon orientated line of hair products. The Daily Use Conditioner and Shampoo contain organic lemon extract, apricot butter, sunflower oil and corn germ. Found them at Salon International London earlier this year.

How To Use
For the shampoo, rinse hair, apply to wet hair, distributing evenly, rinse shampoo out. For conditioner, apply to wet hair distributing evenly throughout, leave for 3/5 minutes, rinse out.

The Pros
They have a pleasant Unisex fragrance. The shampoo lathers up to an admirably¬† soapy froth and is a quick cleaner compared to most of the mens ‘shampoo and and body wash’ type of products I use. The conditioner was really good at leaving hair feeling¬† hair feeling full of life and bounce. Not something men often want, but I have obscenely thin hair. Anything that helps my barnet look like anything other than a drowned cat I will take. It can also be found really cheap. ¬£11 for 1000ml! That’s a lot of shampoo for the money! I mean, its about, you know, 10 lots of 100ml. Which is a lot.

The Cons
Seemed to be a salon aimed line, so may not be readily available in stores. Also the font style packaging may prevent it from taking off and being a big seller. I cannot think of many font packaged brands that have lasted any length of time.

The Take Away
You get a lot of good shampoo and conditioner for the money, even greater if you have thin hair. Would recommend.

Woody’s Shave Relief Balm

What is it?
Woody’s Shave Relief Balm for soothing and moisturizing the skin post shave. Another from TheModernMan box a few weeks back.

How To Use
Squeeze some into your palms, apply to face and neck post shave.

The Pros
It works well for soothing and moisturizing. It has a pleasant citrus fragrance. The bottle is huge. 177ml! You do not need much, so even shaving daily this would last months. The price is pretty good too. I also like the branding. The surfer logo on the deep brown works very well. Unlike yesterday’s Morgans Moustache Cream, I like the look of this on my bathroom shelf.

The Cons
I do not have any cons Woodys Shaving Balm… Be wary if you do not like citrus smells?

The Take Away
Brilliant value for money, pleasant smell, makes the face all soothed and moisturized. Good for them that feel grizzled and rough after a shave. Better for them that get grizzled when having to shop for this stuff regularly.

Morgans Moustache and Beard Cream

(Pictured product is sample size, 20ml, actual product is full size 75ml)

What is it?
Morgans Moustache and Beard Cream is softening cream for beards and moustaches.

How To Use
Scoop a petit poi pea sized finger of cream, massage into moustache, comb through, style as desired.

The Pros
It smells pleasant and with just a few days use makes a noticeable difference. I mean it really does soften the moustache. Unlike pomades, Morgans Moustache cream takes the brittle edge off of your mo, meaning theres less chance of impaling your missus face when you give her a kiss.

The Cons
The branding. Oh god Morgans what were you thinking! If it was not for the Morgans quality name, I would not have tried this stuff. When you create classic branded products of ‘this kinda beauty and charm‘, why on earth do you whack that cheap hipster face on things?

The Take Away
I love this product, it is absolutely fantastic, anyone with a stiff moustache or beard should try this. I am sure it would make a good gift for Christmas. Not only for women buying it for men, but men gifting their women with a softer snog.

Earth Conscious from Milae

Its nice when you introduce an ethical brand to someone and they like it too. Milae from LifeExperiment dropped me a link to her own product review of the Earth Conscious Hippy Paste I recommended a few weeks back.

Woody’s Daily Conditioner

DSCF9848

What is it?
Woody’s Daily Conditioner is a mens hair conditioner from the USA. I got it in my recent ModernMan order. It’s meant to leave your hair nourished and healthy.

How To Use
Apply to freshly washed hair and rinse.

The Pros
The smell is fantastic, reminded me of Tutti Fruitis. Not sure if that was the goal though. Its got green tea, mint, sunflower and ginger in. The amount you get in the bottle is good to, I reckon this is going to last me months.

The Cons
My hair is flat, thin and not much of anything. I have used mens conditioners before and they have left my hair feeling a lil thicker, shinier and bouncier. Woody’s does not do this for my hair. That said, checking other reviews, it seems people with thick hair love it.

The Take Away
Nice smelling product, fairly cheap, but I reckon its not for my hair type. Would suggest it if you have thick hair though.
