Every Man Jack: Pre-Shave Face Scrub - Description and Directions

The directions on the Pre-Shave Face Scrub read, "Wet face. Lather a small amount of face scrub on your palm. Gently massage into your grill. Rinse completely. Use every other day for best results. The effective, yet gentle scrub deep cleans to remove dirt and oil, leaving your skin feeling smooth and clean. And in great shape for a perfect shave."

This product is a facial exfoliator that you use in place of your daily facial cleanser every other day. (No, you should not use that bar of soap on your face. See why. It helps exfoliate your skin and keep your pores unclogged. Also, if you suffer with post shave bumps, this can help reduce them. (Here are some more shaving tips for guys.)

The Pre-Shave Face Scrub comes in two scent option: fragrance-free and signature mint. We noted in our reviews of EMJ's shave cream and post-shave face lotion that the mint scent was very light. Unlike those products, the minty scent in the face scrub is much stronger and we absolutely love the scent.

Every Man Jack: Pre-Shave Face Scrub - Review

Things We Love:

  • Price: We noted this in the other two EMJ product reviews (links above), and we'll note it here again. This is a great budget-friendly, all products under $10 line to try. From teens to business men, these products will help you care for your skin.
  • Scent of the Signature Mint: We were a little disappointed in the shave cream and face lotion mint scent, but this face scrub smells just like we think it should. We love it when our man comes out of the shower smelling like this.
  • Free of the Controversial Ingredients: Free of parabens, phthalates, dyes, sodium lauryl sulfate. Also, not tested on animals.
  • Effective Exfoliation: This face scrub uses tiny effective exfoliating bits and jojoba beads to give your skin a thorough exfoliation. Exfoliation is key to clear, healthy looking skin.
  • Good Size Bottle: A full 5 ounces of product should last you an entire month for only $5. We love it.
  • Great Directions: Many times you have no idea how often to use a scrub, but EMJ puts it clearly on the bottle. Every other day.
