Make sure your mug looks as good as your hair with Grooming Lounge’s ultra lubricating Beard Destroyer Shave Cream.

Grooming Lounge

Birchbox Breakdown

For a product that’s all about flexible shaping, gel can be very cut-and-dried—so dry, in fact, that things get flaky once you attempt a restyle. Grooming Lounge’s expert team of barbers and grooming geeks formulated this gel to give precise control rather than a death grip. It goes on light while giving a firm but flexible hold.

How it Works

Unlike alcohol-based gels that turn hair into a hard, shiny helmet, this water-based formula delivers a medium-to-firm hold minus any stickiness or flakiness. Natural ingredients like rosemary extract, lavender, and jojoba seed oil boost hair health while giving off a pleasant yet masculine fragrance.

How to Use

Spread a dab of gel across fingertips and work the product from back to front on dry hair, distributing it evenly across your head. Style accordingly.

Great Product

I really like this gel, I usually use American Crew, have for years, and this is very comparable, maybe better. If it wasn't for the price difference I'd switch right now, still considering it though.

Great gel
Purchased

My husband likes when gels leave his hair looking a little wet, so I purchased this gel on a whim based on past reviews. He absolutely loves it!

Holds great

Gives hair that wet look that many guys like. I use a fiber type product in my own hair that is stiff, but not wet looking. If you are into Gel - try this out!

Good

The gel is good but if you're looking for the non-wet look this isn't for you. Smells and feels good otherwise

Better than average gel

I think its better than the average gel, however its not nearly as good (for me) as a fiber product. It holds up hair but gives me that shine that I dislike.

Good hold with some softness

Better than average gel that doesn't get crisp. Would give it five stars if it had a little more moisture.

It's ok....

This gel is pretty much your standard gel. I would say medium hold, nondescript smell. Overall, if you currently want a gel that will give you some hold not get too crunchy this is your gel.
I'll stick to my pommade for my dry hair.

Not bad

Use this generally after the gym or when my hair gets too long to use fiber/paste stuff. It holds ok during the day, and NO flaking that I noticed which was nice. Not sticky either which is nice.

good after working out

i bring this with me to the gym and use it after i get out of the shower. not the best hair gel I've used, but great for traveling and when you need a little fix to your hair.
