As you know, I love supporting local and Canadian brands any chance that I get, which is why I am thrilled to be reviewing Wise Men’s Care, a company based in my home province of Quebec!
What attracted me the most to this company is that they offer high-quality, all-natural, cruelty-free products, that are free from artificial fragrances, colors, MEA, DEA or TEA, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates. Best of all (in my opinion), they offer reusable containers, to help reduce packaging waste!
For review, Wise kindly sent my fiance, Sean, their Introductory Bundle ($65 CAD). It includes their Glacier Clay Pomade and their Birch Bark Daily Shampoo. (PS: women could totally use these, but since this line is geared towards men, I thought I’d let Sean try these out to get the best possible review!)
Here are Sean’s thoughts on both products:
The packaging is super unique, but difficult to work with. However in fairness, according to the website, this is their refill pouch, so you’d use this specific pouch to re-fill the glass jar of the same product, found here.
Despite the packaging, the shampoo itself works well. While it doesn’t lather like traditional shampoo due to the lack of sulfates, it cleanses well, and once rinsed and dried, makes your hair feel soft without needing to use conditioner. Not to mention, this pouch will literally last forever, so you definitely get a good bang for your buck!
The texture of this pomade is harder than normal pomades, probably because it’s clay based. However, this pomade really makes your hairstyle stay put! It doesn’t weigh your hair down or make it look crunchy/wet like other pomades. Also, a little bit goes a long way! The best part of this product is how easily it washes out of your hair! Again, since this product goes a long way with very little product, you definitely get a good bang for your buck with this guy too!
Overall, Sean really enjoyed Wise Men’s Care products and said he would definitely buy the products again when his stuff runs out (But you know how it is with guys, these two products will last him probably the rest of the year!). Wise Men’s Care has wonderful starter packs and gift sets on their website, and any of the products would make a fantastic gift for the men in your life – I’m even thinking about picking it up for the men in our wedding party as a thank-you gift when the wedding is wrapped up!
Have you or the man in your life tried Wise Men’s Care products yet? If not, I highly recommend you do!
Thanks for reading!
