Brand Spotlight: Mucky Ducks Men’s Grooming Product Review

About The Brand: Mucky Ducks Men’s Grooming Supply Co

Mucky Ducks Men’s Grooming Supply Co was a brand originated from Toronto, Canada, founded by Elliot Duck in 2018.

The idea came about when Elliot (the founder of Mucky Ducks) aimed to create a better grooming experience for men, especially with sensitive skin. He started off with the Old Fashioned Shave Cream which became a hit among men in a short time. This shaving cream has stood out from the normal shaving cream that you can find in most pharmacy stores or grocery shelves (Do check out our review below!). From then on, Elliot and his team continued to develop more men’s grooming products, especially around skincare and haircare. This company stood by the principle of using organic and natural ingredients, without injecting any parabens, phthalates, sulfates which would harm the human body.  And more importantly, no test is done on animals.

Mucky Ducks Old Fashioned Shave Cream – Cooling Menthol

We desperately couldn’t to wait to try the Mucky Ducks Old Fashioned Shave Cream, and boy, it did not disappoint us.

The texture has a very light, smooth and creamy feel. Scooping it out was a breeze using fingers. I thought their design can be better. Instead of scooping out directly into the bottle with bare hands, housing in a bottle with a pump mechanism will be much more hygienic. But I guess it is designed to be used with a shave brush.

Direction to use: First, wet your face with some warm water. Then, you may use a shave brush or you could just scoop some of the shaving creams and apply on your wet face in a swirling motion. Lather up if needed by adding some water. Next, pick up your razor and start shaving in the direction of your beard growth.

Our shaving experience was a very smooth one. In this case, I have used the Gillette Fusion ProShield Razor With Flexball Technology for shaving. I have no problem gliding the shaver for a clean shave with no razor burn on my sensitive skin. After the shave and washing off with water, I could feel a cooling sensation around the shaved area, which was great. This was due to the use of menthol which refreshes the skin. My skin did not dry out and there’s only very little irritation (my current condition is much worst when using a normal shave cream of other brands).

Overall, I was very pleased. I will definitely have the Mucky Grooming Old Fashioned Shave Cream as part of my shaving routine products.

Benefits of Mucky Ducks Old Fashioned Shave Cream Ingredients

  • Shea butter and Sweet Almont Oil used to soften the skin for a smoother shaving experience when gliding down with your razor.

  • Peppermint oil acts as a natural antiseptic and antimicrobial

  • Menthol used to cool down and refreshes your face during and after the shave

The aftershave balm is a must-have after shaving. It is designed to moisturizes and soothes your skin.
