Philip B Nordic Wood Hair and Body Shampoo 11.8.13 Certified FabulousFinally an all in one shampoo made for a manly man of the forests. A soap that is both strong in cleaning and in scent. Powerful enough to clean the dirtiest of men and leave him fresh as a newly fallen balsam fir tree…. These dramatic descriptions are the first things that come to mind when I was asked to try Philip B’s Nordic Wood Hair & Body Shampoo. After using this product I can honestly say that it holds up to the descriptions above… almost to a tee.

This hair and body shampoo has a stand out scent, compared to a lot of different products in its class. It employs the extracts Norwegian Spruce, Balsam Fir, White Pine, Cedar and Camphor as its main ingredients. These tree oils aren't just in there for its potent bouquet, they also provide nourishment for the skin. This dynamic mix of natural extracts combined with cleansing agents, provide an almost therapeutic spa experience while leaving the body fresh and clean.

The clean that this body wash and shampoo delivers is equal to its robust scent. After washing, my hair and skin had a “squeaky” clean to it.  You all know what feeling when you run your fingers through your wet hair in the shower and you hear a little “squeak”…. No… nobody?.... Well it’s the feeling of super clean hair. The shampoo strips out the grease and grime of the day and leaves clean and hydrated hair and skin behind. The refreshing clean that I find is perfect for waking up in the morning and facing the day.

My conclusion on this fine product is one of approval. The scent while using the product was aromatic and therapeutic, but didn't stick around and become overpowering after. The shampoo did a great job in cleansing the hair, skin, and pores of grime and oils. And on the frugal side of things, it doesn't take a large amount to get a nice satisfying clean. I would recommend this product to people with oilier skin and hair dynamics for its purifying nature, but also to anyone else looking to a nice healthy clean…. Especially nature lovers ;-)


I remember when I was growing up I shared a large glass jar full of a green jelly that I would use to hold my hair in place. It was heavy, smelled like moth balls and held my hair in a shiny solid mass. Bullets couldn't penetrate that hair and that was all I knew. Then I grew up and found that hair can be light, healthy and still be well groomed. This is where Eufora Hero for Men Molding Paste really shows its metal.

Eufora HERO Molding Paste 11.8.13 Certified FabulousOpening the jar releases a very light scent. So light that after I applied it to my hair, I could barely smell it. Which is perfect for anyone that likes a little extra hold and slathers the paste on heavy. For me, I chose a small dime sized dollop in my palm. With that one tiny application, I was able to style my hair and have it hold its shape all day.

The paste binds hair together gently and without any solid chunks. It allows for movement in light doses and a firm hold in heavier applications. Even with a good amount of the paste in my hair, it never seemed shiny or greasy. Using a paste as apposed to a gel or foam, lends itself to have a matte finish instead of a solid shine. Perfect for a dapper style that doesn't show any effort.

This hair product is, to put it simply, excellent. Eufora Hero is simple to use and highly effective. It provides a superior hold all day with very little product used. What more could you ask for in a hair shaping product? Sparkles maybe, if you are into that sort of thing... personally though, I'll take the classy hold of this molding paste.
