Spend vs Save: Men's Care Essentials

Spend: Jack Black Turbo Body Bar Scrubbing Soap

Promising review: “If I could justify spending $15 for each bar of soap that I go through, I would use this everyday. I find the smell to be intoxicating, with hints of musk and fresh mint, but not too overbearing like some heavy colognes tend to be. The scent truly gets you up and moving, in a good way. It’s also worth mentioning that this is a fantastic bar soap for scrubbing… the natural pumice really does the trick. I find that my skin is rather oily, so anything that makes me feel super clean and refreshed is an A+ in my book. My advice is, try it, but beware that you may find yourself wanting more of it, and that bar of Ivory Spring will begin to feel (and look) like a cheap date.” Aging Millenial
