If there’s one thing I’ve learned from living with my boyfriend for four years, it’s that he’s not too picky when it comes to skincare and grooming products – as long as whatever is in his hand is easy to use, smells decent and does the job, he’s happy. It’s a mentality I think a lot of women could try to emulate more often. Rather than getting caught up in the fluff of a lot of beauty products out there, just aim to find something that does what you need and carry on. Simple, eh?
When these Jack Black products landed on my desk I knew it was a chance to not only have Brad try them out, but for me to give them a go too. The Moisture Therapy Lip Balm ($9.00) had my attention as I’d heard nothing but great things, and the Clay Pomade ($22.00, available at select Holt Renfrew locations across Canada) definitely piqued my interest since my short hair often needs very particular taming. In Brad’s case, he uses a similar hair product daily to achieve his signature ‘look’ and this was a chance for his to branch out and try something new.
From my perspective, the lip balm lives up to its claims of being a rich, hydrating product to treat dry, chapped lips. This time of year is really hard on my lips and they tend to get quite dry and sometimes split, so a solid balm to keep things nice and smooth is essential. The clay pomade was also handy for controlling certain parts of my hair (there’s a part where it always wants to flop the opposite way and I’m constantly fighting with it) but be careful, as a very little goes a very long way!
Brad on the other hand had a bit of difficulty adjusting to the pomade. It’s much thicker than the product he’s used to working with, and not as easy to manipulate – the results were great, but he did say it took some getting used to. The balm was also a hit with him because he too like to have something on hand for hydration as the weather cools off.
If your man is looking to change up or add to his routine, Jack Black products are definitely worth a shot. It’s a trusted name and the products are high-quality, and hey, if you aren’t or don’t have a man, feel free to check them out for yourself!
