So who buys the soap in your house? My guess is it's not him.
Guys don't make a fuss when they leave the shower smelling like jasmine flowers, but now they get a choice!
MANSTUFF was purpose built so a guy could smell like a guy. An offering to their fellow man, MANSTUFF has risen from the ruins of Christchurch and been brewed in the rugged surrounds of Marlborough. Crafted from the best of ingredients the range offers up two bars of soap: Handful of Gravel and Whiskey and Mint $12. 'Handful of Gravel' states it will 'clean you up no matter what's stuck to you,' which sounds a little ominous... and 'Whiskey and Mint' contains whiskey extract and peppermint oil, it's invigorating and can be used on the face and the bod. (They like that.)
I had a couple of men take it home and tell me all about it after a shower. As you can imagine it wasn't easy getting a lot out of them, feedback as follows:
Whiskey and Mint fragrance was enjoyed, the soap was soft, the natural ingredient preferred.
Handful of Gravel had a nice exfoliating thing going on, not as harsh as the name might suggest, very happy to not smell like flowers but be clean.
It's the sense of humour about this product that's most refreshing and with big plans to add more manly grooming stuff to their line you should check it out www.manstuff.co.nz
Next addition to the bathroom: his and hers soap trays.
