Oh hey, since you're here, we want to talk to you about male grooming. Surprising, right? We're pretty laser-focused on this concept and that's why we noticed that disconnects have been forming amongst the male population.
Many guys are doing a better job taking care of their balls and we couldn't be prouder. At the same time, a lot of guys are slipping in other areas. Do you have a specialized facial scrub? If not, you need to keep reading. It seems that guys who take up male grooming misunderstand a core premise. They wonder, "Can you use MANSCAPED® on your face?" This practice is about much, much more than your balls. You have to see the big picture here.
Does grooming include your face?
In a word, yes. Grooming includes your face. In our opinion, men's grooming comprises everything you do to take care of your body—especially when it involves skin and hair care. Naturally, your face is involved in that, and the lessons of grooming can help you take better care of it.
We always harp on exfoliating after grooming your body. Do you think that excludes beard care? It doesn't. After you shave your beard, you should moisturize and exfoliate, with an exception. If you shave every day, only exfoliate once a week, but you should still moisturize every time.
We want to point out that this was always our philosophy. We designed some of our products to be used exclusively on the face. We make a safety razor. We just launched an already-iconic beard trimmer. It's straight-up developed from years of studying face trimmers. It would be weird if you didn't shave your beard with it, but we're going to talk about that in more detail a little later.
Can you use MANSCAPED® on your face?
The answer to this is a little bit yes and a little bit no. Some products are explicitly for your face, while others are for other parts of your body. They won't outright harm you, but misusing them is less than ideal.
Here's an example: MANSCAPED® does not currently have a face wash. If used correctly, none of our products should be harmful if used on your face, but none of them replace a proper face wash. If you try to use ball deodorant as a replacement for acne cream, you aren't going to get beautiful results. That's what we mean here, and it makes even more sense if we break it down for each product.
What MANSCAPED® products can I use on my face?
Let's start with the disclaimer-ish talk. None of our products are outright harmful to your face but if used incorrectly, they can be. Please don't put our body wash in your eyes. It will probably sting or burn. You get the idea. When used correctly, some of our products really shouldn't be on your face anyway, so let's go through it.
MANSCAPED® UltraPremium Body Wash
While we don’t yet have a dedicated face wash, you can safely use our Body Wash on your handsome mug. We made this for showering, and you should wash your face in the shower along with the rest of your body.
Here's the thing. Your face needs a little more care than most of your skin, so you should have an out-of-shower face wash and moisturizer that you also use. MANSCAPED® UltraPremium Body Wash doesn’t replace these functions. It cleans your face in the shower. It even moisturizes a tad, but it's not a total face solution.
The Plow™ 2.0 safety razor
The Plow™ 2.0 is a safety razor. Using a safety razor is pretty much the same anywhere you want to shave. That's by design, so you can (and should) make The Plow™ 2.0 razor your primary facial razor.
There is a catch, though. Cross-contamination is a thing and it creates real problems. If you use the same razor on your face and your behind, you're going to have issues. It would be best if you did a few things. First, never for any reason ever use the same blade on different parts of your body. Second, sanitize your razor (rubbing alcohol is excellent for this) before you switch body parts. Better yet, have a dedicated razor for your face and a different tool entirely for your body. Keep The Plow™ 2.0 razor just for your face. That makes things easy.
There's a second catch, and that's using MANSCAPED® when you have acne on your face. Doing this is possible, but you want to go through that guide to do it safely and correctly.
The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit
This probably doesn’t even need an explanation since it’s in the name, but yes, you can use The Beard Hedger™ Pro Kit on your face. The latest tool in grooming from MANSCAPED®, The Beard Hedger is for both the novice and the expert. Not only is it waterproof (hello, time-saving shower and shave), but it has a zoom wheel with 20 different lengths from which to choose. The kit also keeps your beard brilliant with other beard-dedicated products like a beard shampoo, beard conditioner, beard balm, beard oil, scissors, comb, and brush.
What MANSCAPED® products should I avoid using on my face?
Once more with feeling… the products should not be harmful to your face; they're just not designed for that use. So as a recommendation, please don't put them on your face. It's pretty easy.
Crop Preserver® Ball Deodorant
The Crop Preserver® is our ball deodorant, it's not a face deodorant. That doesn't even exist. It's not a facial moisturizer. It's ball deodorant. It goes on your balls. We're not even fans of using it on the pits when you forgot to go shopping.
The Crop Preserver® ball deodorant's engineering is specific to the moisture and microbial conditions of your crotch. It simply won't work the same way on other parts of your body. If you want that Crop Preserver® deodorant scent on the rest of your body, we make a cologne. It uses the same signature scent, so please use that instead.
Crop Reviver® Ball Toner
Crop Reviver® is a ball toner. Again, that sentence is being specific. Crop Reviver® exists to promote healthy moisture levels for your groin area. Those conditions are unique for your body, so the Crop Reviver® toner formula is not tweaked correctly for the rest of you. Please keep it in your pants.
Now you can decide which MANSCAPED® products you want to use on your face.
That about covers it. You now know if you can use MANSCAPED® on your face. Men's grooming is absolutely about your face as much as it is about what you have below the waist. You have to take care of your whole body and we're trying to help with all of it. Keep in mind that lessons that apply to your face often apply to the rest of you and vice versa. As always, be sure to check back in regularly. We're still releasing new products and providing new insights into everything you need to know about grooming.
