Men’s grooming has gotten rather large over the past couple of years. Back in the day it used to be men didn’t talk about their grooming habits in the bathroom. Men didn’t exchange shaving tips or sit around and talk about which shaving cream they liked best. You didn’t see or hear of men sitting around discussing why they shave in the shower. Men also never, never, never openly admitted to using their wife’s or girlfriends products in the bathroom, but we all knew it happened, we just didn’t openly admit to it. Those days are long past us now and men’s grooming has turned into an entity that’s just as big as our favorite female companions grooming routine is. It’s now very normal for couples to share some of the same products and counter space in the bathroom and sometimes it’s the man who has the most grooming products compared to his counter part.
When it comes to men’s grooming there are a lot of websites that offer lots of products. Most websites you find offer a gauntlet of products ranging from razors to shaving soaps and creams with all the accessories needed for a great shave. There are also websites that cater to our fine bearded gentleman and specialize in beard care products to keep that beard soft and healthy looking but also carry other shaving products for the non bearded gentleman. I personally love beard care products and what they offer your shaving routine and skin care regimen. If you don’t have some kind of skin care regimen you should because shaving causes trauma to your skin no matter how good your products are. Anytime you run a razor across your face you’re hurting your skin. If you are not properly taking care of your skin it will start to show over time. I’m not saying you have to start using a lot of extra products, but by adding some aftershave or moisturizer to your routine you’re increasing the healthiness and longevity of your skin every time, especially if the products you are using contain some natural ingredients.
TheModCabin.Com is a website that specializes in beard care products but also carries items for moustache care and maintenance along with other shaving products for men who don’t sport the bearded look. They carry a variety of products all branded with the Mod Cabin name to fit many grooming needs. The Mod Cabin carries all their own products that are handcrafted in small batches with all natural ingredients to ensure a quality product every time. Some brands say all natural ingredients and when you look at the list on the back there might be one or two and the rest are all chemical based. This is not the case for The Mod Cabin. When they say all natural they mean all natural. Their products do not contain parabens, phthalates, sulfates or synthetic dyes that can lead to skin irritation. It’s the all natural way all the time with The Mod Cabin products. The Mod Cabin carries all natural products for the individual that’s looking to add value to their skin care regimen and shaving routine.
I just couldn’t wait for my package from TheModCabin.Com to arrive on my door step. I get excited over new shaving products. It’s the unknown that I look forward to. The unknown of how your new shaving products will feel on your skin and what kind of shave they provide. I also look forward to the unknown of whether these new shaving products will compliment other products when used together or will they just work well together. Once I received my much anticipated box from The Mod Cabin I opened it up and found one 6 oz. bar of Miner’s Mint Soap. A 2 oz. glass jar of Miner’s Mint shave oil, 2 oz. glass jar of Miner’s Mint Toner and Aftershave Face Tonic and a 3 oz. tin of Miner’s Mint aftershave balm. I was definitely looking forward to trying this shaving routine for myself and I was glad I
did. I started my shaving routine off with the Miner’s Mint shave Oil. It comes in a 2 oz. brown tinted glass bottle with a sprayer type pump lid. With natural essential oils direct exposure to light for a certain length of time will change the consistency of the oil and it may become less effective. That’s why The Mod Cabin decided to store it in a dark tinted glass bottle preserving the quality while providing you with an oil that adds value to your shaving routine. Five to ten pumps is all I needed to coat the skin on my dome and face. The oil has a nice consistency that falls in between thin and thick. It’s thin but not runny. I applied and massaged it into my skin quickly absorbing it leaving behind a nice supple glow. I washed my hands and there was no greasy residue left over. This shave oil is All natural and contains organic ingredients. Absolutely no parabens, phthalates, or SLS are used when making this shave oil. The Miners Mint shave oil contains meadowfoam seed oil, rice bran oil, avocado oil, jojoba Oil and an essential oil blend. These natural oils have several benefits for your skin such as soothing inflamed areas caused by sunburn, bug bites and stings, helping the skin fight eczema and psoriasis, moisturizing and increasing suppleness. These are just a few examples out of the many. You can find more benefits online by searching for the benefits of each ingredient listed.
One of the main reasons I was looking forward to trying the Miner’s Mint shave soap is because it’s a powerful all purpose soap. You can use it to keep your beard and body nice and clean while nourishing your skin with natural pure essential oils. This soap is very functional meaning you can wash your hands with it, then use it in the shower to wash your beard and body while finishing up with a great shave from the same bar of soap that you used to wash your hands, beard and body with. That’s one soap to do it all, and all of it’s done with a soap that’s made of all natural oils for an all natural cleanliness that is good for your skin and your health as well as for the environment too. I decided to bloom the Miner’s Mint bar soap for about 15 minutes in hot water to get a creamier lather right away. After 15 minutes I drained the soapy water into a separate container for later use. Instead of adding more water from the faucet you want to use the soapy water you save from blooming. This soapy water helps create a creamier lather.
I started rotations of my hard bristled shave brush on the surface of the soap that was soft and compliant. The lather started to build right away into a pre-lather that took less than two minutes to turn into a shave ready lather that was rich and creamy. I loaded the bristles of my brush with a thick and robust lather that felt smooth on my skin and provided a nice cushion with a lot of sickness for a comfortable shave. My razor glided across my skin with nice fluid strokes every time. The post shave end feel was fantastic, my skin felt supple and soft. The Miner’s Mint shave soap is all natural with organic ingredients and does not contain parabens, phthalates or SLS. Some of the natural and organic ingredients that it does contain is saponified olive oil, saponified coconut oil, saponified castor bean oil and pure essential oils. These natural ingredients are antibacterial and antifungal, a natural exfoliant and can help soften and heal dry and cracked skin through moisturization. These natural ingredients can also help your skin fight eczema and psoriasis, reduce wrinkles by encouraging the production of collagen in your skin filling out wrinkles. The Miner’s Mint shave soap also contains natural glycerin. Glycerin is a humectant that attracts moisture increasing the softness of the skin. After my nightly shave was done I followed it up with the Miner’s Mint Toner and Aftershave Face Tonic. This aftershave tonic also comes in a 2 oz. brown tinted glass bottle with sprayer type lid to preserve and protect the natural ingredients used to make this product. The sprayer pump type lid makes it even easier to use since the aftershave comes out in a mist. Just a couple of pumps is all you need to create a mist that cotes and dries quickly into your skin without any greasy residue left over. The Miner’s Mint aftershave tonic contains all natural ingredients such as aloe vera juice, witch hazel (alcohol free), essential oil blend that’s helps tone and tighten the skin fighting the signs of aging. These natural ingredients also help fight and kill bacteria caused from razor burn, cuts and scrapes. The Miner’s Mint aftershave tonic is a perfect addition to any shaving routine.
last but not least I put the final touches on with the Miner’s Mint all natural and handcrafted aftershave balm that comes in a 3 oz. tin with a twist on/off lid. This aftershave balm was very soft in consistency and easy to use. The soft consistency of this balm made applying it to my skin effortless. I swiped my finger softly across the top of the balm and easily obtained a small amount that I transferred into the palm of my hands. The heat from the palms of my hands warmed the balm into an even softer state making it easy to massage into the skin on my dome and face soaking in quickly leaving my skin looking soft and supple with a nice glow and smooth finish. The Miner’s Mint aftershave balm contains organic shea butter, rice bran oil and essential oil blend to keep your skin soft, smooth and healthy. A perfect aftershave balm for a perfect shave routine with perfect shaving products.
