So I realized that in the almost year I've been reviewing products and writing this blog, I've never reviewed anything strictly for men. And I got to thinking, well I have this perfectly good husband I could use as my test dummy! He'll pretty much try anything anyway. While shopping for body wash for him, I talked him into trying the Every Man Jack body wash, a cruelty free and mostly vegan alternative to Old Spice and Axe and brands of that nature. I asked him to take brief notes on the smell, the texture, color, how it made his skin feel, was it drying? Moisturizing? Stuff like that. I kept it simple for him. Well, in typical man fashion, the response I got from him was "It smelled good." Lol. So, I decided, for the sake of reviewing, I'll use the body wash myself and smell like a man all day!
Let's talk about the brand itself first. Every Man Jack is a cruelty free and mostly vegan brand that offers essential grooming items for men. They offer: body wash and body bars, deodorant, sunblock, razors, hair products, a variety of face wash, scrubs, and lotions. The scents that they offer are: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Signature Mint, Eucalyptus Mint, and Citrus. Today I'm going to be reviewing their body wash in Cedarwood.
Do you like how I took the photo of this manly body wash in front of my super girly shower curtain?! Lol.
Texture: This is a clear thicker gel body wash. It lathers really well, which is good for my husband as he works a physical job and needs something that will really get him clean. I used a handful on myself which was more than enough. So a little does go a long way, especially if you use a loofah. I did not because I didn't want my loofah smelling manly lol.
Scent: Cedarwood is a really masculine scent. It's woodsy, and smells just like you would expect it to. It's a scent similar to brands like Old Spice but without the testing on poor innocent animals part, so really, it's better. It's s sexy smell for a man, so I really liked it. I've also smelled the Sandalwood, and this applies to that as well.
The scent didn't last long on my skin, which for myself I was happy with, but it smells so good I wish it would last longer on my husband's skin. Perhaps if there was a body lotion scented the same, layering would help that smell last longer. My husband wouldn't use it because he has this weird aversion to lotion, but I know other men would.
Verdict: I really liked this body wash. It did make my skin feel clean but not dried out after using it. I still needed to apply moisturizer of course, but my skin didn't feel tight. I recommend this body wash to all the men reading this, and to all the ladies reading this for their men! Be mindful that not all of their products are vegan, but they are all cruelty free. I wrote to their customer service about which products are vegan, and a really nice gentleman named Pete responded with this:
Be sure to check out their website and stop by Target! I got this body wash for my husband there and it was only $4.99- their website lists it for $6. Target only had the body wash from what I saw, but to be fair I wasn't looking for anything else.
I plan on doing reviews for some other manly things in the future. I have one product in mind I want to get for my husband to try.
