This is my first moustache wax review. The first and possibly the worst(Wax that is)….
This was the very first wax that I got my hands on. I looked online for hours and hours looking for a wax that I could buy in a store. The only two that I found were Pinaud-Clubman and CVS brand Moustache Wax. I went on a search from store to store (Walgreens to Walgreens) trying to find Clubman (since it has SO MANY reviews). All of my searches for the infamous Clubman came up will no luck.
My search for in-store moustache wax brought me to CVS where I found their CVS brand Moustache Wax.
I was excited to see the price of $4.99 and the fact that it came with a comb, until I opened it and tried to apply the wax.
-When I say wax, I mean that in the least waxy way possible- this stuff is more like a thick lotion. It was a mess to try and apply. Although I must say the smell is quite pleasant (not over powering). I found myself discouraged because this stuff just could not hold!(and remember this is when I first started growing a handlebar so there was not much for it to hold.) Throughout the day I would have to apply it almost every hour to get the curl and hold that I wanted, and STILL I had “fangs” and a droopy ‘stache (you never want a droopy ‘stache) within the hour
One thing I will say is that the comb was a nice thing to have. It did help evenly spread the wax throughout the ‘stache. Although It did break after a couple days of keeping it in my pocket for “on the go” styling (which you needed with this wax).
So I guess I would say this is one of my least favorite moustache waxes (as of now). If you are in a bind and NEED a wax then this might work for you, Only because it is sold at CVS and is so readily available. This wax might also work if you are one of those people who like doing things over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.
–As far as buying a quality wax in a store, you wont be able to find anything except the CVS/Walgreens Store brand, and Clubman. Unless you find yourself a shaving specialty store (West Coast Shaving or something like that). You could always check in at a local old school barber shop and see if they have anything. As far as I’ve found, if your looking for a good quality moustache wax you will have to order it off line. – which is not good if your in a hurry. One thing that you can use if you are in need of a wax NOW then you can always go grab yourself a Pomade or just use some hair spray.–
