Now I have had a couple of companies contact me about doing a “Private” review for their wax. Harry’s (actually the guys name is Bill) was one of the first people to contact me about doing a private review… Well I did that, and Bill have me the go ahead to do a public review… SO here it is folks..
Ok, so lets start out with the name: Harry’s Best Deluxe Moustache Wax… But I thought the guys name was Bill… Well it is, Bill created this wax and named it after his Grandfather whom sported a “Luxurious ‘Stache”.
Alright, on to the review.. When I received my package from Bill, I was surprised to see a tin and a tube of wax, both wrapped individually in some paper. When I finally got the courage to unwrap the tin I saw a nice light yellow label with a cartoon picture of Bill on the front.
On the label it says Formula 25, I looked on his website and found that Bill previously had 24 other formulas and he finally found the right combination of oils and various waxes…WELL Let’s see if he was right about Formula 25..
Opening the tin you see a white wax and the scent you get is a very light beeswax scent. There is obviously no added scent and or color, so that means that you will not have to worry about it coloring your ‘stache and or making it smell funny!
Scraping the wax out of the tin you realize it is a medium wax, and once you start warming it between your fingers the wax melts almost instantly. once warmed the white color disappears and you’re left with a clear wax. Warming this wax is very easy, like I said it melts almost instantly when you start rubbing it between your fingers. If you find that it is still a little too tough for you to warm (Which I highly doubt) Try keeping it in your pocket for a few minutes and it speeds up the warming process. Applying this stuff is very easy since it warms up so nicely. This wax spreads very easily in the ‘stache so you don’t have to worry about getting any clumps.
Now because this wax was so easily warmed up I was a little worried about the hold of this wax…Well I wasn’t completely wrong… This wax sets up nicely but because it is a medium wax you wont be able to get huge curls. I did notice that I did have to worry about the center of the ‘stache throughout the day, but since I had the handy-dandy tube of wax I was able to re-apply very easily when needed. Because this wax is a medium wax I would say to save this wax for the cooler days as it melts so easily.
Washing this wax out is very easy, I found that a little warm water and a dab of soap will wash this stuff right out.
Overall I would say this is a great wax for those who are looking for a wax with a good amount of hold but nothing that requires an excavator to get out of the tin. This wax is also great for those who are not looking for a strong scented wax, as this only has the light scent of beeswax. Also this wax is great for those who want a wax that is easily washed out, a tad of soap and some warm water and you have a fresh un-waxed ‘stache. For $5.79 for a 1oz tin and for $2.90 for a “Chap-Stick” tube of wax with free shipping to the US, head on over to their site and get your self a tin or two of Harry’s Best Deluxe Moustache Wax, make sure you let them know I sent you!
A huge thanks to Bill and Harry’s Best! My apologies for the late review (I’ve been slacking a lot lately)
Until Next Time
