I'm growing a mustache for Movember and well, just for the fun of it! I've had one before, but usually in tandem with a beard or goatee. I kept it trimmed so I never had a need to "train" it. I started looking into mustache waxes and picked up some Clubman locally for s's and g's. Let me just say I'm not impressed. I don't know if I got a bad tube or what, but the stuff was kind of grainy like it wouldn't rub in. It just leaves little flakes of it in your 'stache that don't come out without combing the crap out of it. It smells like lemon furniture polish, not something I want under my nose all day. And then there's the chemical laden ingredient list. I guess you get what you pay for.

Anyway, sorry for the ramble, I'm just looking for some suggestions for a good smelling all (or mostly) natural mustache wax. Thanks in advance!

Ok, so I guess nobody else here either A, has a mustache or B, uses mustache wax. Oh well, I tried. Thanks for looking anyway. Smile

Jeff, my father used Clubman for years and I would say your comments about it are pretty accurate. My mustache does not require oil or wax so I cannot help. However, I believe discussions and suggestions have popped up elsewhere on the site. Good luck in your search.

TheHandleBar & CaD314 can probably assist.

Clubman mustache wax is for the mustache wearer who has never tried anything else. It's easy to use, but also easy to use too much and easy to screw up. I usually don't recommend that one at all.

The mustache wax you use really depends on the mustache you'd like to wear. I tend to like medium hold, slightly malleable waxes for my mustache. My current favorite is BeardBrand mustache wax. It comes in a convenient Chapstick style tube which is very easy to apply: just lift the cap and rub it directly on your mustache. It's easy to re-style and adjust throughout the day without getting too stiff. It also contains lanolin which can help to soften your mustache hair over time and make it more managable. I would not recommend this wax if you plan on doing a tight curl or straight/stiff points. It's great for a more natural look with control while maintaining a solid appearance without stray hairs.

For a stiffer wax, I would recommend True Wax and CaD314 's Dandy Candy Mustache Trainer. You can get a bit more creative with those stronger waxes.

Enjoy your Mo!

I know it's on sale, but there's no reason a 2oz tin of mustache wax should ever be regularly priced at $59 with such basic ingredients....

Full disclosure, I used Clubman neutral when I sport a mustache and never had an issue.
Just saw this deal; the high degree of customer satisfaction and thought it might be something the OP might want to consider.

Thanks folks,
There are a lot of great waxes out there now a days! I personally go for the all natural ones rather than the ones that contain petrochemicals, but tha's personal preference. I would say read reviews, Ingredient labels and decide if you want a light, Medium Or Super Stiff hold....then go for it!
