The modern grooming industry is booming, and that’s a fine fact. New brands are constantly popping up on the market in the hope of becoming the next best thing. Old grooming brands such as Elemis, Lab Series and Clinique for Men are stepping up their game to elevate their current line-up of beloved grooming essentials. People like variety, the option to choose from a broad spectrum of products is something that won’t die down any time soon.
Today, we’re discussing and sharing my opinions on Urban Jack: an excitable grooming brand that set-out to conquer the daunting world of shaving landscape across the ever-growing grooming world. Urban Jack lies on protecting the modern man’s skin from city life pollution, by shielding the skin from free radicals, dust and everyday pollutants, our skin can benefit its full potential, and over time with continuous use.
CityFresh, the key ingredient within Urban Jack’s curated line of grooming must-haves. By combining probiotics, skin-conditioning emollients and radical fighter vitamin E creates a fascinating protective bubble or second skin to guard against city life pollution: this is one of the reasons why Urban Jack is different from the majority of grooming brands on this competitive market.
We’re slowing making our way to my first thoughts on the skincare line, but before I begin to ramble on some more, I’d like to share with you when I first discovered Urban Jack a few years ago. Shaving, let’s be honest, we all hate doing it, it’s a chore that we have to obey on a daily basis, and with thousands of shaving foams, gels and creams that promise us an easy slide, it can certainly feel overwhelming by what’s on offer to us bearded-proud men.
The Urban Jack shave serum, a revolutionary, clear shaving oil-gel hybrid that offers a shockingly but delightful shave experience like no other. While most shaving products may offer a cushion of comfort on the skin, this shave serum works with the skin, and naturally by keeping an exceptional slick-glide during the whole shaving progress. It’s super concentrated, so a small amount goes a long way, even when tidying up the cheeky necklines.
Honestly, hand-on-heart, I couldn’t believe how protective this little guy could truly be. Unlike most shaving gels or creams that need to be reapplied after one or two razor strokes, this product was very different, my skin felt insanely protective for the period of shaving and I didn’t feel the need to reach for a second pump. Result!
Let’s make our way to the face moisturizer, a deliciously-fragranced lotion with pure oatmeal and cell-protecting Vitamin E. Urban Jack knew that guys were becoming more and more concern on the way they appeared, and gracefully aging wasn’t an option, so natural betaine was adding into the cauldron to soothe and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’re constantly on a morning rush to work where a grooming ritual is almost non-existent, I feel you, moisturizing is a work in progress, but by compelling a simple but easy commitment your skin will thank you in the long run, trust me on this. Urban Jack’s face moisturiser was designed for the modern busy man like myself. That’s why Jack created a formula that instantly absorbed, giving you those extra few minutes perfecting your finished look.
Urban Jack didn’t just blend a random set of essential oils, the team wanted a fragrance that stood out from the competition, a scent that was memorable.
The cleanser is probably the favourite out of the three products that I got kindly sent. Following the same wave of ingredients like the big brother of a moisturiser, this facial gel wash from Urban Jack offers an intensely deep-cleansing effect that won’t disturb or irritate the natural skin barrier that we thrive to maintain healthily. What’s inside? Firstly, milder, coconut-based cleansing surfactants rather than irritating soaps are used to provide the softest, most subtle creamy foam. The wonders of which hazel is added to provide a spark of cleansing whilst supporting the skin to restore its natural pH balance. Jack infused Babassu oil to target and clear stubborn skin irritation caused by ingrown hairs. This skin-loving oil also works a treat on blemished, reddening skin.
Last but not least, the heavenly shower oil, for guys who enjoy a little sophisticated fragrance in their shower routine. This cleansing oil isn’t like the rest, upon contact with fresh warm water, you will experience a softening foam that glides gracefully across the body. A pump or two will provide you with a generous amount of product to use for the entire body. Considering this is designed as a shower oil, I’ve been using this as a facial cleanser when I like to travel light during my visits to my second home, the gym. It does a brilliant job at removing sweat that has accumulated during my intense gym sessions.
There’s not really an awful lot to say about the ingredients, the whole grooming collection consists of the same key ingredients that work to condition, hydrate and re-mineralize the skins overall health. If you’re ready for a complete change in your current grooming ritual, start off with this game-changing shower oil, I can ensure you won’t be disappointed.
A percentage of the profits go towards supporting charities for men with Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), Mental Health and Suicide Risk.
This cause is very close to my heart. Having BDD myself is something I struggle with on a daily basis. Some days are harder than others and I’m okay with that. On bad days, I look into the mirror with scarsed and see someone completely different, a person who makes my heart break into tiny little pieces, a person with an appearance that shouts ”reject”, ”not good enough” and ”over-weight”. The good news is that I have more good days than bad days which in my opinion is a positive sign that I’m slowly getting better.
