Jack Black Beard Lube Review
Secondly, apologies for the lack of activity recently, I’ve moved from high Wycombe back to Manchester with work, so the last few days have been pretty hectic, not to mention that I’ve not got broadband yet! To make amends, I’m going to deluge you with posts over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out!
The first is a review of ‘beard lube’ by Jack Black. Firstly, no its not a hirsute sexual aid, nor is it made by US actor Jack Black. It is in fact a rather fine shave product. It describes itself as a ‘pre-shave oil, shave cream and skin conditioner all in one’.
Generally it lives up to the billing, but I must regard it as something of a Jack Black of all trades, master of none. The overall shave experience was very good, leaving my skin smooth and providing a close shave with even a light coating of the product. I would still recommend using a pre-shave and post shave product, particularly if you have sensitive skin.
I am overall impressed by the beard lube, and will be working my way through the rest of the tube, but I would probably not buy again. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, just that there are better products out there at this price point. It’s the kind of product that I hate reviewing, because there’s nothing wrong with it, but there’s nothing about it that bowls me over. It’s a perfectly good shave product, and don’t get me wrong, there are people out there for whom this will be the holy grail, but for me it’s just another shave product. If you ever shave in a hurry, this is definitely worth a punt as the hybrid nature is great for anyone with limited time.
Jack Black beard lube is £18 for 177ml and is available from mankind
