Evoking images of bearded wild cavemen (and perhaps a few gay bears too), ManCave is a range of no nonsense skin and shower products for – you guessed it. Men. Free of parabens, sulphates (SLS and SLES), synthetic dyes and petrochemicals. This range is not tested on animals and has the Cruelty Free International logo to prove it. The ManCave FaceWash and ShowerGel have been given a trial run in The Spa Man’s shower for the past two weeks and gets the thumbs up. I would have swapped the consistency of the two products around though. I think the Shower Gel is a bit thick and takes a little bit of effort to wash with – and the FaceWash is a little bit loose – you end up using more than is needed. Maybe it’s personal preference – but that’s my input. So the FaceWash – nice smell, great extracts and ingredients and perks you up first thing and leaves the skin awake and most importantly clean. It’s citrussy and a bit zingy. The ShowerGel has a similar scent and doesn’t foam up immediately (it’s SLS free) – you need to work it a little more to lather up – but you are adding less chemicals into your grooming regime and that can’t be bad.
ManCave FaceWash is formulated with Willow Bark, Green Tea and Spinach the rich gel has anti-oxidant, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory properties to protect and defend skin cells. The 12 essential oils give it a burst of aromatherapy.
Excellent value for a natural range of products formulated free of parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals.
