Dear Barber Moustache Wax

What is it?
Dear Barber Moustache Pomade with Oat, Jojoba and Argan Oils. Billed as being soft and workable while quick setting on the moustache. Another from TheModernMan box a few weeks back.

How To Use
Use a finger nail to swipe a tiny amount of the pot, and between your fingers to warm the pomade, rub into moustache, comb through, style as desired.

The Pros
One of the stronger moustache pomades. Its great for keeping stray hair in line, styling, and stays in there all day no matter how many times winter forces you to blow your nose. It feels more like a fiber. The scent is mild and pleasant, perfect for a moustache pomade. I like the classic styled branded too.

The Cons
The descriptions of Dear Barber Moustache Wax claim its specially formulated to remain soft and workable between the fingers. I found it generally hard even when warm. That is not a con for me, I love Dear Barber because its so strong. But if you want a soft pomade, this may not be the one for you.

The Take Away
Super strong pomade. Really good for styling. Is a go to Pomade for holding everything in place. Can make your moustache 80% more stabby. Be careful kissing your missus. Go in at an angle or something. If you want something softer, go for the Morgans.

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.

1642 Nappa Card Holder

While I was looking at mens products, I came across this rather spiffy card holder. It has that gorgeous brown leather look any man could appreciate. Its a small and simple 2 card holder, so suits the minimalist me that only ever caries a bank card and oyster card. I usually snap both as I never have a wallet…

My usual reason for not having a wallet is because mens wallets nowadays are bigger than womens purses. Who wants one of them stuff in his pocket all the time? It seems mens accessories lean towards the Man-Baggers at the moment.

The wallet feels quality, has 2 card holders and an outer pocket for notes. Love it. Would make a good gift to the non man bagging male in your life.

Modern Man

A follow on from ToppBox really. I got myself a delivery of useable mens products from TheModernMan. Groovy little website I have supplied for a few years, will start ordering mens products from them from now on. They have free global delivery, and if you live in the USA you can clean up… Literally at the current exchange rate.

I grabbed myself some Morgans Moustache Pomade, Dear Barber Moustache Pomade, Woodys Conditioner and Woodys Shaving Balm.

Currently loving the Woody’s. Have not tried the Pomades properly.

Hippy Paste Deodorant

Now here is a product I became quite taken with. Hippy Paste by Earth Conscious.

It is a deodorant in a paste form. Its in a tin and has the texture of a firm hair pomade. I find it best to apply it in a similar way to pomade. Take a pea size ball and warm it between the palms of your hands, then apply to your pre sweaty body parts.

The citrus paste, which I got in a ToppBox, smells great. First time I have worn a really nice smelling deodorant. They usually all smell the same to me.

It is more of a faff to put on than spray and roll ons.

Its a product I will be buying in the future. I like the ethics, I like the packaging and I like the product. Cheers ToppBox and Earth Conscious!
