Now I hope all of you fellow ‘stache lovers had a fantastic holiday season! I hope you all kept your ‘stache stiff and out-of-the-way while indulging in some fantastic holiday food(Because I know I did). I know I have again been very late with my review but it was the holidays and I was lost in the beauty of my home town Boulder, CO. Alright, let’s get on with this review shall we?
Queen City Handmade Moustache Wax is one that I came across while on the wonderful world of Facebook. I was very interested in trying out this wax just because…. Well I don’t really have a reason, I was just interested in getting my hands on a tin of wax and giving it a shot!
I contacted Adam from Queen City and he was happy to ship me off a tin of his handmade moustache wax. When I received it in the mail I was excited to get it open and check out what was inside!
I opened up my package to a 1oz (actually the tin says .9oz but it is in the same type tin as a 1oz) tin of wax with a nice creative label on it.
Opening up the tin you see a dark yellows/orange colored wax. the color reminds me of what a beeswax should look like, nothing too dark, and nothing too light. The smell of the wax is very hard to put a name to, but my weird nose says something along the lines of a high quality chocolate. Yea, I know, weird right? well I guess you can say it smells like Beeswax and Petroleum Jelly, but that takes the fun out of it right?! The smell of the wax is quite pleasant actually, and in no way is it over powering while in the ‘tache.
When I first got the tin, I could hear the wax shaking around in it, and well, I had flashbacks of another wax that would shake around in the tin……. When I snapped back into reality I scraped some wax out and my nail got stuck! This wax is STIFF! Now it’s not stiff that it just flakes off like solid Beeswax would, it’s more like a thick sticky wax. As for warming this stuff up, it is fairly easy, this wax is a little bit “Gummy” so it is different then the other more solid waxes, but it does warm up nicely when paired with a hair dryer.
Applying it to the ‘stache is quite easy for being such a stiff wax. Once warmed up the wax it spreads easily into the ‘stache and working it into curls is also easy while the wax is warm.
As far as the hold, This wax stays pretty stiff while in the ‘stache, Like most waxes out there I did have to readjust the ‘stache a little bit, but I didn’t have to worry too much about DSS (Droopy ‘Stache Syndrome) throughout the day.
Overall I would say my experience with Queen City Moustache Wax was very enjoyable! Although the wax is very stiff and does take some time to get warmed up, applying it and keeping it styled in the ‘stache throughout the day is relatively easy. The smell of the wax is very nice and is not overpowering while in the ‘stache. If you are looking for a good stiff wax, then this would be one you should definitely have a look at. Head on over to their site and check them out, and order yourself a tin of wax for only $10.
A huge thanks to Adam of Queen City Handmade Moustache wax!
