Get Jack Black!

Happy New Year! It’s so exciting to be starting off a brand new year. I personally have so many new things going on in my life and I am excited to see what the year will have to offer. My family and I decided that we would end the year right and spend our Christmas budget on a winter vacation instead of all the Christmas gifts and parties and everything else we normally do. So we were off to Lake Tahoe the day after Christmas and spent a week enjoying all the winter activities. So you may be wondering how my Christmas vacation ties in with my favorite subjects of beauty and cosmetics but of course in my beauty obsessed world it’s never hard to do. So the big news is Jack Black Skincare! This is a skincare line geared to men but I thoroughly enjoyed the lip conditioner/treatment all week long.

When you are enjoying all the winter activities such as snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, and enjoying those nice brisk walks through the winter streets your exposed skin really takes a toll. It’s easy to get dry cracked lips and wind burned skin. I insisted that my husband and son actually take some time to really take care of their skin and prep it in a way that would be beneficial and protective in the elements. Each day I recommended that they use the Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20 with Blue Algae Extract and Sea Parsley. It provides the protection and the botanicals that are nourishing to the skins. I was impressed at how light weight and moisturizing the cream is. Also my husband is very sensitive to highly fragrant products and refuses to smell “girly.” The moisturizer is fragrance free and even the most macho man wouldn’t be ashamed to use these products.

Our precious lips are also extremely sensitive to extreme weather conditions. So I was happy to carry along Jack Black’s Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25 with Natural Mint and Shea Butter. We all used this product! I love the emollient base and minty smell. This product is awesome in restoring your lips to be smooth and kissable.

So now is the time to have the men in your lives taking care of their skin before they hit those slopes or face the cold windy days. Do what I did. Just set the products near their sink next to their toothbrushes. That way remembering to use their moisturizer after they wash their face and brush their teeth in the morning becomes routine. Just so you know Jack Black makes a full line of products from shaving cream to shampoo and conditioner so you can get your man hooked on the entire line!

I love my boys!
