I’ve had a Mankind Grooming Box before and loved every single item! I was excited to get my hands on the Limited Edition March Grooming Box and was just as excited to try out all the products inside! It’s only available for March, so head over and get hold of one while you can!
I have naturally curly and coarse hair so I’m always very specific with the kinds of products I use. When I noticed 3 of the 6 products were hair related, I was intrigued to know how I was going to find them! I’ve tried them all out and I’ll break down my thoughts.
MONU for Men Fresh Wash
First and foremost, I love the smell! I could definitely smell the Ginseng and it made my face feel lovely and fresh. I also really enjoy products with papaya enzymes in as it naturally works to exfoliate the skin without the abrasiveness of a scrub. One thing I wasn’t so keen on is that this product appeared to have glitter in! It was only a really tiny amount and I understand it’s probably there to make your skin glow, but still, I wasn’t keen on that. If it weren’t for the glitter, I would have repurchased this product again.
I didn’t know what to make of this product. I was expecting a gel, but then it’s a cream that when worked into the hands, liquefies! Strange, right? This product aims to add volume and body to your hair without leaving your hair feeling sticky. It definitely does what it says on the tin. With my hair being naturally curly, it has enough volume naturally. I tend to go for products to tame my hair, not to give it that added ‘oompf’. If you wanted a product to give you a bit of lift, this would be the one for you. Personally, it made my hair bigger than I’d usually go for, but if that’s the look you’re going for, go buy this product!
Redken Cerafill Defy Shampoo
The main goal of this product is to improve the appearance of thinning hair. Shampoos tend to do this by strengthening the fibre of you hair and energising your hair follicles. This product has a nice cooling feeling on the scalp and smells lovely! It didn’t make my hair look visibly thicker, but it’s naturally thick enough so that doesn’t surprise me. It does work to really cleanse the hair, which for someone who uses hair product each day, is definitely a benefit!
Redken Cerfill Defy Conditioner
This works hand-in-hand with the shampoo. It helps to thicken your hair and adds shine. It’s a nice conditioner and left my hair feeling soft. As mentioned previously, my hairs thick enough so I don’t tend to see a massive difference. However I’m sure if you had thinning hair, this would be great.
Scaramouche & Fandango Men’s Body Wash
I’ve used a face scrub from this brand that I got in my January Grooming Box, so I was definitely excited to use this wash. It’s got vitamin E in, which is known for its skincare benefits. As well as papaya extract which gives you a gentle exfoliation. This product lathers up really well and did leave a nice smell on my skin afterwards. It’s also really reasonably priced individually! All in all, winner!
Kent Brushes A20T Men’s Folding Comb
Not gonna lie, I always tend to go for the cheapest comb I can find. All I end up doing is melting it with a hair dryer anyway. It was refreshing to have a comb that is actually sturdy! It folds in half, which means I’ll definitely be taking it travelling with me. I wont end up with bent or broken comb teeth, which is great! You can’t actually buy this individually though, unless you head over to Amazon.
There you have it, my thoughts on the March Mankind Grooming Box! All in all, it’s a decent box and really good value for money! As I always love at least 50% of what I get, I’d still buy the box as the other half work really well as gifts! As mentioned, it’s only available while stocks last, if you want this you’ll need to buy it soon.
Until next time,
