THE GRITTY TRUTH ABOUT OUR MEN’S CHARCOAL BODY SCRUB!
Let’s face it, having great skin makes you look and feel good about yourself, and it should since it’s our largest organ and promotes our external (and internal appearance). A good body scrub should leave your skin healthy, conditioned, smooth and fresh, yet with so many products not delivering what they promise, it’s hard to decide what to use.
We recently teamed up with Dylan Horner, owner of The Variance Blog, to see what he thought of our Charcoal Body Scrub. Dylan, not generally a fan of body scrubs due to excessively sensitive skin, was challenged to try our scrub for 4 weeks and provide an honest opinion no matter what he thought.
THE VARIANCE REVIEW – THE GROOMED MAN CO. ACTIVATED CHARCOAL & BAMBOO BODY SCRUB.
Recently I teamed up with the guys at The Groomed Man Co. to try one of their newest products, the Activated Charcoal & Bamboo Body Scrub. Now I am usually not one for body scrubs or any scrub just because my skin is very sensitive. How sensitive is it you ask? You know when you’re getting a haircut and the barber takes the straight razor to “clean up” your neck? Well, my neck 99.9% of the time looks fire hydrant red after that and scares the shit out my barber. With this scrub on the other hand, I ended up having no regrets! Hence why I am writing about it.
Before tearing apart the packaging and rubbing the product all over me willy nilly, I read the instructions. ( Which actually all of you should do with anything.. so don’t judge).
So, first with this scrub they tell you to use it only twice a week since it is so rough. Also, they don’t recommend it, but you can use it on your face. Be warned though, if you have a super sensitive face, try not to scrub in too hard and don’t use a lot. Or just don’t even try. Plus, apply the scrub in shower or else I guarantee it that you will be scrubbing off a lot more than just dirt.
Then the part that makes The Groomed Man Co. scrub the “Groomed Man Co.” scrub is that it is made with silica rich bamboo stem extract which gives it a gritty and rough texture. To prevent your skin from drying out, looking flakey and not to mention gross, they added Argan and Jojoba oils which hydrate the skin. To tie it all together they gave the scrub a refreshing Australian Sandalwood scent, which I hope is what Australia smells like.
Finally, if you know me I am a sucker for great packing and not to mention it’s a BLACK scrub!!Where do you see that?!?!
In the end loved this scrub, left my skin feeling smoooooothhh as hell!!! Definitely gets my stamp of approval and go check: The Groomed Man Co.
