Mint Product Review: Solo Noir SLEEK 2-IN-1 Pre-Shave + Shave Cream for men
Solo Noir is a Chicago based skincare brand that makes 100% organic, natural and 2-in-1 grooming products for men. Simple, versatile and effective, Solo Noir is a non-toxic and a safe brand for men who want to try all natural skincare products.
Here are a few reasons why you should consider trying their cleansing and shaving products –
Simple Routines – The brand has two skincare sets, one for cleansing and another for shaving, with 3 simple steps to follow under each set. You can add or eliminate a step based on your skin condition. They come with clear instructions which is a plus.
Multitasking 2 in 1 nature – All the products in their collection are multitasking and 2 in 1 in nature, being able to cover two different skincare tasks. The SLEEK product I received for example, can be used as a preshave or a shaving cream. As a pre-shave, you could leave it on as a mask, wash it off and follow up by shaving with a dry electric razor or clippers. As a shaving cream, you could use it in conjunction with a wet razor.
Problem Solver – Every product in their collection is formulated to address common skin problems. From ingrown hairs, blemishes and dull rough skin to dry skin and loss of elasticity, there is a product in their collection to target your skin issue.
Organic Ingredients – All their products are 100% Organic and Natural. Their ingredient lists are simple and filled with familiar natural bio-based names you can actually understand! There are no useless fillers, water to dilute the effectiveness of the ingredients or scary preservatives.
Clean Packaging – The package is sleek, clean and simple with a hint of organic feel which is perfect for men.
Cool Names: The cleansing set has DAPPER (Cleanser + Toner), REFINED (Buff + Cleanse), and SMOOTH (Skin conditioner + Smoother). Their shaving set has SLEEK (Pre-shave + Shave Cream), BRAVE (Aftershave + Toner), and SMOOTH (Skin Conditioner + Smoother). Remember Kevin from the movie Home Alone after using an aftershave? Brave would have been a better option for him, don’t you think? 🙂
A Local Buy – This is a Chicago based brand and perfect for anyone who wants to support local brands.
My husband got to try this product and he liked the product. He used it as a shave cream with the wet blades and he did find that it helped him achieve a smoother closer shave. He wasn’t excited about the fact that it’s a non-foaming cream but he liked the overall effectiveness of the product. According to me, the non-foaming part is actually a plus because it doesn’t strip moisture away from your skin so it leaves your skin in a better condition and helps achieve a much softer, smoother and younger looking complexion in the long run. It takes a while to get used to a non-sudsing or low sudsing skincare product but the benefits are totally worth it and you will eventually get used to feel of a non-foaming product on your skin.
Key Ingredients in SLEEK: Marigold (wound healing, great for oily and sensitive skin), Blueberry Extract (antioxidants, collagen booster), Cupuassa Butter (soothes and softens facial hair and skin.
Paraben Free, Alcohol Free, Chemical Free, No Fragrances, No Dyes.
