Groomed Two in One Wash - Hair & Body Multitask

Shopping for me is a nightmare - there, I’ve done it, I’ve ’fessed up and they do say that admitting that there is a problem is the first step of recovery! 

While I have a few steady brands I use I just can’t help but pick up new ones just to test them out.

In this case I was lucky enough to be sent a sample of the Groomed Two in One Wash Hair and Body Multitask to put through its paces. A 250ml bottle is available from Asda for just £2 so unlikely to break the bank if it is actually any good.

Groomed Two in One Wash - Hair & Body Multitask


The marketing blurb states:

‘Guys, take the ‘grrrrr’ out of grooming! 

Expertly formulated for me who want no fuss, quality and results…naturally! 

Bursting with natural extracts this invigorating hair and body combo helps to awaken and refresh, whilst moisturising properties help to combat dry, dull hair and skin.’

So, is it any good?

Well, it comes out like any other shower gel but the fragrance punches you in the face - the blend of Tea Tree, Peppermint and Menthol give you that wake up slap around the face. At the moment I find this perfect to banish the lingering thoughts of sleep as I get ready for work in the morning. Invigorating? Yes, and then some.

The gel lathers up brilliantly and if anything the fragrance gets so much stronger as it is released by the warm water. 

While it is marketed as a body and hair wash I’ve had some dodgy experiences in the past where products like this leave my hair feeling like straw once dried - its as though the products drain all of the moisture out of the shaft leaving me unimpressed. For this reason I erred on the side of caution and didn’t apply to my locks, personally choosing to use this as just a body wash, after all I have a bathroom full of high end shampoos and conditioners to use.

In terms of kicking those crusty smells away I haven’t found anything better - after a day in the office, an hour in cattle class of London Underground in tropical heat and a night out using this leaves me confident that I am indeed clean and smelling lovely.

The menthol lingers on the skin which is reassuring and lasts for a few hours. 

At just £2 for a 250ml bottle this is exceptional value for money. Only a little of the gel is needed to product a thick and rich lather which means a bottle being used every day lasts over a month. It’s bloody good and will be a product I return to over and over again.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  1. Thanks for this review. My husband is like a sloth in the morning and anything that can invigorate and wake him up is worth 10 times the price!

  2. We don't use products with parabens due to eczema in my home. I love the smell of this and guess it would be really invigorating on a morning

  3. I've never worked out why so many men's products reckon they are suitable for hair and body. I think you're wise to stick to separate products.

  4. This is exactly a product my husband would use. Personally if it has menthol in I find it too strong for my skin, men's products often have menthol and tea tree in though - maybe their skin is 'tougher' than us ladies ;)

  8. I've been trying to persuade Azii that it really would be beneficial to him to use a couple of products, I don't mean a whole slew of skincare items or anything of the such but just a few key things that'd help him. I do think that two in one products, such as these, are great for men who aren't so sure about products. I finally got him using something, in my You beauty box last month was a dove shave cream which Also moisturises, he likes it!!

  9. Every now and again, my younger brother (aged 21) decides to spend the night at my home if he's been at a few of his friend's local to me, and can't be bothered or is too broke to make his way back home. This isn't a problem, I give him the spare quilt, and if he's capable enough, I let him drag the spare mattress into the front room where he will conk out literally within minutes.

    The morning after is the hard part though, I always have packets of brand new toothbrushes in the bathroom cabinet, just because you never know when your two year old nephew is going to decide your's needs a trip down the toilet, or in his own mouth ;), towels are always stocked up high, and I have body wash to suit both sexes, however, my hair products are completely unusable for him, and being a young 21 year old, his appearance including his hair is quite important!

    I purchased him some expensive branded male hair products from Boots, and he's ending up taking them with him on both occasions I've replaced them, at £2 a pop, I wouldn't mind replacing this on a regular basis if he does decide the hair product needs to return home with him!

    Thank's for sharing!

  16. I must let Hubby know - he doesn't like fussing about and always uses the 2-in-one hair and body wash, and this sounds like the perfect one for all those early starts. And the price should convince him too ;)
