Thanks man, that was one that I was definitely considering since I was planning on placing an order with PAA sometime soon anyway. I've enjoyed all of their other products I've tried and I like that they use all natural ingredients.

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....

Hey thanks for the detailed reply! I was waiting to see if you would chime in. That Beard Brand one sounds like exactly what I'm looking for! Just something with a medium-ish hold for a natural look while keeping the stray hairs at bay. What does it smell like?

Just saw this deal; the high degree of customer satisfaction and thought it might be something the OP might want to consider.

I think I've been using too much of the Clubman to where it feels sticky and gets flaky. That and I don't like the scent of it either. I appreciate your input regardless. Smile

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!

Thanks CaD314! I have watched a couple of your videos on the subject and have gotten some great tips on how to use mustache wax. I have read a ton of reviews, as I do with everything, and I do prefer products with natural ingredients whenever possible. I just wanted to see what some other mustachioed brothers were using and maybe get some recommendations!

wyze0ne Regarding the BeardBrand mustache wax, they have several scents. I like the Tea Tree one which has a bit of peppermint. Tree Ranger is solid as well.

I can't grow a 'stache to save my life, but my dad has been wearing one since he was 17. I got him the Walrus Mustache Co. wax, and he has raved about both the performance and scent.

Thanks again for the input everyone! I think I'm going to grab 2 or 3 different ones and experiment. I'll post a review here after I've used them a few times.

I have a pretty good 'stache running...I use wax from The Bearded Bastard and Black Rebel Beard Company. Both have good hold that lasts a long time. The Bearded Bastard has amazing scents, the Black Rebel is unscented.

Lately, my stache has needed that "extra hold", so I have been using Elmer's Glue Stick. Non-toxic, water soluble, unscented, and holds STRONG while still looking very natural. It works for me...

I wish I could take credit for it, but the idea was given to me by a gentlemen with an amazing handlebar mustache that is always impeccably controlled, yet always looks completely natural. I asked how he did it, he gave me the tip. It works like a charm!

BadDad, thanks I might have to try that. Cheaper than 'stache wax too!
