Beau Brummell Face Wash.

For Christmas, Genifer got me a subscription to Birchbox. Every month, I get a box full of little samples of different men’s grooming products. There have been a lot of new brands that I’ve been turned on to, especially different colognes and hair products. But the one thing Birchbox hasn’t found me yet was a face wash that I really loved. Lucky for me, I got the chance to check out The Gentlemen’s Face Wash by Beau Brummell…

George Bryan Brummell, better known as Beau Brummell, was one of England’s most refined gentlemen from the late 18th to early 19th centuries. Born to a middle-class London family, Beau Brummell became a testament that elegance is a product of style and personality, as opposed to class and money. His fame began when he attained the rank of lieutenant in a prestigious cavalry regiment, where he became a close confidant of the future King, George IV.

His ambition was to revolutionize men’s fashion of the day and he is now credited with inventing the modern men’s suit, worn with a necktie. Beau simplified the custom of men wearing large, ornate clothing and ushered in the era of men wearing finely tailored fitted garments. This new age of men’s fashion became known as “dandyism.” Fast-forward to the twenty-first century and Brummell’s contributions to men’s style and modern elegance are still as relevant now as they were back then.

In addition to his timeless innovations in fashion, Beau famously spent nearly 5 hours a day on his grooming regimen. Following his lead, men throughout England (and later Europe) began the practice of shaving daily, bathing daily, and wearing fragrances. I don’t have five hours a day to spend on my grooming. But we’ll definitely give this a try and see how we like it…

For the Beau Brummell website:

The Gentlemen’s Face Wash offers an effective way to keep your skin clean and free of dirt and oils. Cleansing your face twice daily ensures your skin will maintain its youthful appearance. Rosemary oil and caffeine leave your skin feeling fresh and smooth, so you can stay handsome.

I was very excited to give this product a try. The fragrance is wonderful and it’s a deep green-grey color when it first comes out of the pump, which is surprisingly hard to photograph. When you lather it on your face, it gets very foaming and there a slight tingly sensation. Another added benefit of Beau Brummell’s Face Wash is it contains activated charcoal powder. They claim their face wash contains a heaping amount of the stuff, it’s why their product has that wonderful dark color. I’m no scientist but apparently, the charcoal absorbs and traps impurities from the surface of your skin and washes them away as you rinse your face. To read more about the benefits of activated charcoal, check out Beau Brummell’s blog post about why they use charcoal.

At the end of the day, I’ve found my new face wash. My search for a face wash is finally over. Some of these face washes I’ve seen on Birchbox have been pretty ridiculously priced. But at just $25 for an 8oz bottle, this is definitely a product that I’ll be ordering, over and over, to stay #BrummellFresh. And if you enter the code, MEETBEAU at checkout you can save $5 on your order. Thanks, Beau Brummell! 😀🚿❤️
