Gin and Bare It

Blind Barber's grooming products could make your face drunk


The scent of gin on your skin in the morning usually prefaces a long, painful hangover that feels like your blood's been replaced with Pine Sol.

But Blind Barber's Water Mint Gin Facial Cleanser gives a whole new meaning to drunk face, and a much better one at that.

The cult NYC barber shop, staffed by well-coiffed and tatted dudes who know grooming, just released this boozy cleanser, a follow-up to its Water Mint Gin Shave Cream and Aftershave Soother.

The cleanser's gentle enough for daily use, but does a good job on cleaning out your pores and acting as a pre-shave treatment.

The best part, though, is the gin.

Not actual gin, of course — the alcohol would dry out your face like a lunar crater. Instead, it keeps only the good stuff: juniper berry, which fights breakouts and refreshes skin.

And leaves your mug smelling like Don Draper during midday cocktail time, too.
