JB's Dry Goods Friction Free powder - good for 'you know what'

The observant amongst you might have noticed that a plethora of new Jack Black products have just appeared on Mankind. Launched in the Texas over a decade ago Jack Black has won countless awards, picked up numerous celebrity fans and has become one of America’s best known cult grooming brands.

Come winter I am never without a tube of Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm. In fact it’s so long lasting I’m never without the same jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm which has been in my coat pocket for about three years ago (but then it is an award-winning product). Still, I’m sure the people at Jack Black aren’t so pleased to hear that a little goes such a long way!

Still, other products don’t get chance to hang around that long. The brand is especially good for anyone who’s vaguely sporty thanks to the excellent Performance Ready Range (exlusive to Mankind!). The Body Rehab Scrub & Muscle Soak is fantastically aromatic and perfect for people like me who like an occasional soak as much as a shower and the Jack Black Dry Goods Friction-Free Powder is absolutely brilliant, not only for gym-rats but anyone who suffers form chafing in hot weather. I think you know what I’m talking about…

Oh and one final product I’m especially fond of – the Industrial Strength Hand Healer which is great for tackling calluses and dry patches. I’d like to say I use it because the equipment down the gym plays havoc with my hands but these days it’s digging the rose garden and turning the compost heap that buggers my hands up!

Major fan of scented candles, Make Up brushes and Highlighter. I’m always on the hunt for those Holy Grail products and my dressing table is covered in more beauty products than I like to admit. As an adopted Northerner originally from Brighton, I spend most my days wondering what all this rain is about. My hair isn’t grateful for the move. Currently loving: NIOD Photography Fluid
