Hey, you found us! Welcome. This is a little review page about men’s products. Specifically, men’s hair pomades and wet shaving gear.
Everything you will read in here is based on products we tried out. It is just the 2 cents of a regular Joe out on a quest for some decent hair goo and a proper shave. Sometimes brands or shops will send welcomed samples and when that is the case it will be indicated in the review.
Somewhere in between 2010-2011 my “Hair Stylist” introduced me to the Suavecito pomade and I was literally blown away. I had been using gels for as far back as gel was a thing. This “pomade” was a revelation. I could now easily achieve a proper uppercut or a pomp or the 50’s greaser look with decent height and… well, style. Nothing I could have ever accomplished with gel or the new waxes that were hitting the market. Water based pomades are also known as “Ringing Gels”. Pomade looks like a firm gel. The texture generally resembles and feels like a firm gelatin with a small element of wax or oil.
Check these guys out!
About a year after this revelation, my hair salon was no longer offering Suavecito products. That being the case, I set out to find it or an alternative on my own. Well, I soon discovered that there was a multitude of pomades out there. It was exciting and overwhelming. At the time, not really finding much opinions or reviews on these products, I was left with the only choice to start trying them out and hope for the best. This site is mostly dedicated to sharing these findings: where to buy, cost, hold, texture, shine, ease of use, washing it out, etc…
The shaving product experimentation/testing is a direct result of the pomade quest. Men have been shaving for as far back as we have had blades, and all I knew was the Gillette’s razor and shaving foam. I concluded that their had to be more out there. Surprise again, there was a whole lot more products and apparatus than I ever imagined.
Here is how things are laid out:
- On the right you can access the latest 20 posts.
- Below that you can see the posts published in previous months
- At the top you can access page menus per topic. Basically, when the site was launched we started out with pages instead of posts. That structure seamed to make sense at the time.
- If you are looking for a specific item, use the search tool. It will allow you to find anything we touched on by keyword, brand or topic. I would encourage you to use the search since there are already 200+ posts and some 34 pages and new posts are published weekly.

100% human testing! No greasers were armed in the production of these reviews.
