Product Review: Every Man Jack Shaving Cream
I was at our local Target today, checking our their mega expansion into the building next door, and I found some interesting shaving cream - Every Man Jack. Actually there's a whole line of Every Man Jack men's grooming products from shaving cream to body wash to face lotion. And they're all-natural.
Came home. Did a little surfing. Found this article which had a bunch of positive feedback in the comments. Found this review which hated it. Found this article about Ritch Viola, the creator of Every Man Jack, which talks about the brand's creation, ingredients, and marketing.
The final piece of the puzzle came from industrial designer Wai-Loong Lim of Y Studios. Viola wanted a custom design for some of his packaging. Lim designed the containers for the face wash, body wash and hair care products. The design was inspired by the overall identity of the line, and an unexpected source: an old Mexican tequila bottle. It was perfect.
If you look at the products in the picture, you'll see they actually have a block of wood on the top. Oh, old mexican tequila bottle! You're always there to inspire me when I need you most.
Every Man Jack Beginner's Luck Kit is $24.99. Each individual product is $4.99 or less. If you try them out, let us know what you think.

The face lotion is really good. I use it to give me a really big dose of moisturizer with SPF 15. I hate the shave cream because it is really thick and doesn't break down very well with water so it gums up my razor really badly. It is designed as a brushless cream but it is pretty bad, even for a brushless.
It isn't really a block of wood on top, but a piece of wood-grain-painted plastic. But the design looks nice and clean.
