My Thoughts On Shampoo For Your Beard

This post is dedicated to all the men out there that are sporting large and well groomed beards. If you’ve managed to grow a beard (since this recent facial hair boom) for fashion reasons rather than just laziness then this should help you out quite a bit.

I recently had the pleasure of testing out a new product for a friend. He is quite a men’s grooming enthusiast himself and decided to go the extra mile and create his own shampoo that can obviously be used on the hair on your head, but most importantly be used on your beard too.

He’d tried many different large brand shampoos on his facial hair before, but nothing really hit the spot and did the job. Eventually he did find a product that worked really well on his beard, but wasn’t actually designed or positioned to be used on beards at all.


This was when he got one of those eureka moments. He thought, why not make my own product but market it towards young, fashionable men that are currently growing out their facial hair. Seemed like a pretty neat idea to me, so I gave him my full encouragement.

The trouble he later found, was that doing this and going through all the steps of creating his own product and trying to sell it online as much more difficult than it sounds. To this day he still hasn’t managed to officially release his item and bring it to market. Sadly it is still in development.

I told him that I would tell all of you guys as soon as it is ready. In the meantime, if you are still looking for an organic shampoo for beards, then this is one that I think is really good and does the trick.

If my mates can be half as good as this one then I think he will be really happy.

Peppermint Oil – all you need to know

New Products With Life has launched and now I’m here to present you with our initial post. I’m sure many of you have heard about peppermint oil before. It’s supposed to have a number of interesting qualities and can be used in many different ways.

Typically you might use it as a sort of massage oil and rub it into your skin from time to time to keep it nice and soft. Some may also use it as a kind of air freshener. This can be accomplished in a number of ways. You might simply want to spray some of it around your house. Alternatively you could boil up a large pan of water in your kitchen and pour a small amount of the oil into that boiling water. This tends to spread the intoxicating aromas around your house.

Another option is to buy something called a diffuser, or oil dispenser. This is a machine that allows you to pour your oil into it. It then sprays out the oil at different intervals. This is pretty handy as it means you don’t have to put a pan of water on the boil every time you want to make your house smell nice.

What’s even more astonishing is that an oil made from peppermint also have other uses. Did you know that they’re actually pretty handy repellents of insects and rodents? I’m not that well versed with the process, but to my understanding all you have to do is swab the areas where particular insects or rodents appear to be leaving and entering your home, or areas that seem to attract them the most.

Last but not least, it seems peppermint extract is not so bad when used as a disinfectant either. Who would have guessed that? That means whenever you’re tidying up your kitchen and wipe down the surfaces, its worthwhile dabbing a bit of the oil onto a cloth and running that across your surfaces while your at it.

I’d just done a bit of reading on a couple of websites, and it seems the list of uses goes on. Apparently you can add it to your wash whenever you are using your dishwasher or washing machine, and also use it in the bath to create that relaxing aroma.

This might just be one of the most versatile products out there at the moment, so I hope you now understand why I had to mention it.

We Buy Things

Like many other people, I have quite the obsession when it comes to buying stuff online (even if it’s worthless crap). Because of this I feel it’s my duty to give a bit back to the Internet. I’ve made this guide so you can know exactly what to buy (and what not to buy) on the web. Enjoy!
