Price when purchased:  £9.00

Delivery feedback:  

Excellent delivery courtesy of Kit as The Captain was away on business.  I was sent an email stating the package had been posted and it arrived the next day.

Container type/size:   A very solid and secure glass screw top 15ml jar


A sweet lavender scent for this wax though you can opt for sandalwood or ylang ylang.  I found the smell very pleasant, during styling the scent was not overpowering and throughout the day I was gently reminded of the wax, it earns “smell my face” status.


A very easy wax to apply, its nice and soft from the jar without any need to warm.  I have a new technique for styling and this wax took to it very well, I used the hairdryer to eliminate any pulling on the hairs and it was fine with no tugging on the tips. It spread through well and there was no clumping. Once I had achieved the look I was after I set the curls with a cold blast from the hairdryer and was ready to head into the world with a spring in my step.


I have to say I was quite impressed with the hold, the weather was gloriously sunny on both days during the review period which is why I forgot to get the screenshot from the weather app, but hey the sun was shining so don’t hold it against me.  It was also very windy so I was a little concerned that the constant buffeting from the wind and the heat from the sun might affect the wax, I need not have worried.  It was spot on and even survived me running around a kids play place for a few hours in the late afternoon.  I’d say for definite we have a 50mph drive with the windows down safe product.



Captain Fawcett has a great reputation and rightly so, there is an air of mystery about the man and therefore the products, everything about the brand shouts integrity and quality and this is backed up by a wax that performs to the highest order.  The packaging, design and style is lovely and makes you feel as if you are part of the Captain’s next expedition, I felt compelled to get some khaki and binoculars and go on an epic quest, I’ll start with locating the car keys!  In understanding the needs of the moustachioed man and using top grade all natural ingredients the Captain Fawcett’s wax will make you feel confident and proud to wear your moustache.  It has great adaptability to different styles and the hold lasts all day, a great wax if you are out for long periods of time.  I didn’t need to address my moustache once styled despite the wind and while out I got a number of compliments and people “noticing me” from afar and looking on with admiration (in my head it was admiration anyway.)
Go and visit the Captain Fawcett’s new website as listed above and check out all the great products, tell them I sent you and enjoy your lovely new grooming goodies.
