Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit

Whether you’ve kept your beard way late from Movember where men grow beards for a cause – or if you’ve simply decided that this is the look you are going for from now on, you need a kit that will help carefully groom your beard. A perfect item to have is the Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit. It’s an all-in-one product that will allow you to maintain that full-on beard that you are now sporting.

First, what does the Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit contain? Every package has:

1.5-oz bottle of the All-Over Wash for Face, Hair & Body

1-oz bottle of Beard Oil

1.5-oz bottle of Beard Lube Conditioning Shave

1 Handcrafted Beard Comb

Second, how will the kit help you maintain your beard? First, use the All-Over Wash and lather it all over your beard to keep it clean. It does so without stripping the facial hair of essential moisture. Second, apply the Bead Oil which is a combination of melon oil and vitamin E. The oil maintains the suppleness of the skin underneath all that hair, to make sure that your face won’t feel itchy. Third, use the Bead Lube Conditioning Shave when trimming and maintaining the shape of your hair. Lastly, the Handcrafted Beard Comb keeps your facial hair neat and well-groomed. It may sound like a lot of work but if your mind is set on maintaining the bearded, manly, look, then the Jack Black Beard Grooming Kit is definitely for you.

Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit

It might take a lot of time and effort to grow – and maintain – a beard. But for some men who want to sport the bearded look, it’s definitely worth it. The good news is that there are plenty of products in the market that you can use to groom and maintain your facial hair. One example is the Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit, which won two Grooming Awards for 2014 from Esquire and Men’s Health.

Each Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit contains the following items:

3 fl. oz. bottle of Beard Wash Cleansing Formula

3 fl. oz. bottle of Beard Control Styling Formula

1 Reinforced Boar Bristle Brush

The Beard Wash Cleansing Formula contains aloe leaf juice, soy protein, and green tea extract. Combined together, all these ingredients work towards softening the facial hair and hydrating the skin underneath. The Beard Control Styling Formula has panthenol, a styling agent called PVP, and jojoba seed oil which stimulates and conditions hair. Use these two along with the boar bristle brush and grooming your facial hair using the Billy Jealousy Envy Kit has never been easier.

Billy Jealousy Marked IV Life Tattoo Kit

If you just recently got inked, you should definitely use the Billy Jealousy Marked IV Life Tattoo Kit. It’s perfect for those who just got a tattoo and are on their way towards having the inked part of their skin healed and featured in all its colored or black-and-white glory.

Made by Billy Jealousy, the Marked IV Life Tattoo Kit contains the following items:

3 fl. oz. bottle of Tattoo Wash

3 fl. oz. bottle of Tattoo Lotion

2 oz. container of Tattoo Salve

Right after getting a tattoo, your skin is prone to developing infections and it can easily attract dirt and bacteria. After opening up the Billy Jealousy tattoo kit, first use the Tattoo Wash on the part of your skin that just got inked. The Tattoo Wash has oils from rosemary leaf, cucumber extract, papaya extract, pineapple extract, and oat protein. All these ingredients help prevent the tattoo from being discoloured. It also exfoliates the skin and encourages cell turnover for faster healing. The oat protein moisturises the skin to improve the vibrancy of the tattoo.

Next, apply some of the Tattoo Lotion. It has olive oil to moisturize the skin; green tea extract to prevent discoloration; rosemary and grapeseed oil to protect against cell damage; and oil from sea buckthorn which nourishes and moisturizes the skin. Finally, the Tattoo Salve is rich in vitamin E, while also containing lavender and olive oils to bring out the vibrant colors on your tattoo. Use the wash and lotion generously, while the salve can be used sparingly – a little goes a long way. If you want to be well on your way to healing while bringing out the best potential of your awesome dragon tattoo or that intricate image that you have on your skin, use the Billy Jealousy Marked IV Life Tattoo Kit.
