A few weeks ago our editor ended a feeble attempt to grow beard. He'd tried a few times in the past and never made it very far, but this time he made it past the 30-day mark—by far his best attempt yet. The issue? He looked like Papa Smurf minus the blue skin: a hoary haired santa-in-training. His December calendar for mall Santa gigs was filling up too fast, so he ended it. We know, sad right?
Well one cool thing that came out of his beard growing experience, even though he failed, was a product recommended to him by his barber. Yes, we said barber, not “hair dresser.” A good old fashioned barber able to wield a straight razor and not just a set of clippers. The product recommended: GIBS Man Wash BHB (Beard, Hair & Body), a triple threat product made specifically for the discerning manscaper.
- Slice precious time out of your cleansing routine with this all-over lather that takes care of your beard, hair and nether regions in triple time
- Sulfate and paraben free formula, fortified with Copaiba Balsam and Tea Tree oils, cleanses and conditions your hair and skin without stripping away precious moisture
- Rugged, lingering scents of citrus, oak and basil send you out the door smelling like you just emerged from the forest of man
- The ultimate 3-way for your shower; one you’ll never regret the morning after
We're always a bit skeptical of a product that claims to do it all, but Man Wash BHB seems pretty darn good at all three. It takes but a few drops to wash your hair and/or beard, though it doesn’t lather up much. As a body wash it seems to perform well though we needed to use a little more to fully detail the body and undercarriage.
Buzz: Cleans your beard and hair quite well without leaving them dry; works great as a shower gel and even a face wash. Cool packaging looks like an oil bottle and is manly in the shower.
Buzzkill: At $19.99 for a 12 oz. bottle it's a bit on the spendy side. If you like a super sudsy wash, this may not be the product for you.
NOTE: For you beard growers out there, GIBS has a nice line of beard and tattoo oils, beard balm, and shaving gel. So check them out if you’re looking for quality products to keep you looking fresh.
