I was very excited to try this wax purely because of the scent, I found it hard to believe that the promise of Gin and Tonic on the tin could be met. Once I opened the tin I was hit with the most refreshing and pleasing aroma, a wonderful clean and vibrant smell, it certainly lived up to the claim. We most definitely have a wax that will have you shouting “SMELL MY FACE!”
From the tin its a pretty soft wax with no need to heat prior to use and very easy to extract by pushing my thumbnail across the surface. It felt a little greasy on my fingers but this allowed for a very smooth application to the hairs. Its important to not go too heavy with this wax as a little goes a long way. I used the hairdryer and comb as usual but this wax doesn’t need a lot of extra persuasion like some others. Its covers the hair well and sets a natural curl wonderfully, it will also lend itself to a more extreme styling too if you desire.
This is a very good wax in terms of hold, I don’t recall having any issue with hairs slipping into my mouth or having to readjust the tips. This is not the most solid hold I have used but if you require a degree of flexibility and a natural look then this is good for you. I can quite happily give this the 50 mph drive with the windows down hold.
As you can see from the pictures the wax is excellent at the natural look, I felt incredibly comfortable and confident wearing it. I got a lot of comments about it too and it really was a pleasure to wear. The scent is absolutely on the money, very fresh and evocative of summer fun, and really does smell like a Gin and Tonic. Its a well put together product using all the key ingredients you find in a good wax, lovely design on the labelling too. It was easy to wash the wax out and the hairs felt nice a soft after with no clumping or tackiness to report. I think Man’s Face Stuff have made a lovely wax that will suit the beginner but will also find pride of place in the tool box of the established Moustacher. I’m looking forward to trying the other products they have to offer, head over to their store and say hi for me.
