Another review from me and today I’m looking at a terrific moisturiser from Jack Black, whose Beard Lube I reviewed last time out, with slightly mixed feelings – will this stuff knock my socks off?
Double duty is, I assume, so called because it is both an effective moisturiser and an spf 20 sunscreen. Whilst here in sunless Salford, there is little risk of sunburn, we are assured that if you are going near any form of uv light, you should sunscreen up to avoid long term damage to your skin.
So far, it sounds pretty good, but it needs a good test. I’m pleased to report that the results are excellent. Consistency is good, neither too thick or too thin, And absorbs easily and quickly. A little goes a long way, though as it is spf, I would encourage using a bit more than is absolutely needed, to improve protection. Always a word of warning with my reviews of moisturisers, my skin has all the inherent moisturiser of the kalahari, so my face sucks up moisturiser like a sponge. Your mileage may vary.
The scent is that of generic face cream, A bit floral and a little aquatic, fading rapidly, so it won’t interfere with your fragrance. General moisturiser pro tip, apply your fragrance before moisturising then spritz a little after – this should help your fragrance to linger a little longer.
If you are looking for a day moisturiser, I would encourage you to consider this stuff. I will not be giving up my beloved h2o+ moisturiser in the evenings, but before I leave the house I will be making sure I’ve used this stuff, especially as the weather gets warmer. It has certainly pulled double duty for me, and I am much more impressed with this stuff than I was with the beard lube. Well done to Jack Black, who have created a surprisingly light SPF moisturiser that, so far, has been just the ticket for me. I will definitely be using the rest of this, especially as we head into March, though whether I will re-purchase is as yet undecided.
