Wax vs Pomade vs Gel – What’s The Difference?


Many men are giving the lady in their life a serious run for her money when it comes to putting in the effort to look their very best at all times and the extensive range of men’s grooming products on the market is a testament to that. It’s a fact that many men now spend often relatively large amounts of their hard earned cash on various forms of ‘male cosmetics’ and the like, however that which seems to capture the most attention in the men’s market is hair styling products. No one wants to have a bad hair day; that’s just not the in thing anymore and there’s certainly products available for men with all hair types and styles.

Why Men Should Use a Facial Cleanser


Many men, including the ones in my family, have resorted to washing their face with the old bar of body soap. Sure a bar of soap may remove the unwanted dirt and oil from your face but it can also cause your skin more harm than good.

Let’s just say a bar of soap in the skincare world is the equivalent to a can of Barbasol in the world of traditional wet shaving; just don’t use it!

Hair Tonic: What It Is And How To Use It

hair tonic

Hair tonic is an “old school” hair styling product.  It makes the hair look glossier (though some say greasier), something which many people viewed as a sign of healthy hair.  The oils in the hair tonic also help hold the hair in place, making it easier to style, much like mousse or hair spray.   They differ from other hair styling products in that they are almost always a liquid (except for “pomade,” a hair tonic that comes in a gelatinous or other semi-solid form), with mineral oil or liquid petroleum jelly being the primary ingredient.  Some types may also include ingredients like ethanol and something to give the product a scent.  In the 1950s and 60s, hair tonics were in widespread use but fell out of favor with the introduction of styling gel, mousse and a variety of other products.  However, with a return to traditional barbering and grooming techniques, hair tonics are enjoying something of a revival.
