Best Mustache Waxes

10 Best Mustache Waxes


For most, sporting a mustache happens only during No-Shave November, but a month’s worth of hair growth needs nothing to manage it and can barely be spotted in a crowd of men. For others, a sporting a spectacular mustache is is part of their everyday lifestyle. If you’re just beginning to grow a mustache, chances are good that it won’t grow in all spectacular and well-groomed on its own. That’s where a solid can of mustache wax comes in handy. For all of you Mustachioed gentlemen sporting an upper lip full of awesome, here are the ten best mustache waxes on the market, complete with some pretty awesome packaging.

True Wax Mustache Wax

True Wax Mustache Wax

Created by mustachioed gentlemen Trevor Ward and Joshua Weir, True Wax Mustache Wax is crafted from 100% pure beeswax and sinus-clearing pure clove oil, along with some other “classified” ingredients that are kept secret to prevent imitation. The best reason to buy a can of True Wax Mustache Wax is the can itself, which features a 19th century bare knuckled boxer with an awesome mustache looking to go fisticuffs with whomever is willing.

Mans Face Stuff Moustache Wax

Man’s Face Stuff Moustache Wax

Awesome retro styling and superb packaging aside, Man’s Face Stuff is a quality mustache wax for beginners or those with a full blown Mo. Along with an unscented wax, these waterproof mustache waxes come in a variety of pleasant flavors including “All Nighter”–”notes of fresh pipe tobacco and sweetened coffee.”, “Stiff Breeze”–”a crisp, bracing scent of a classic men’s cologne without feeling harsh.”, “Red Hot”–”scented with all-natural cinnamon, bay, and tagetes oil for a slightly sweet, spicy smell.”, and “Ginger Dandy”–a good balance between ginger and peppermint.

Stache Bomb Stache Wax

Stache Bomb Stache Wax

Stache Bomb Stache Wax was inspired by the mustache wielders of yesteryear who rode motorcycles across the country, who wore a monocle, or those hipsters who prefer to drink cheap craft beer from a can. I’ve never actually used Stache Bomb Stache Wax, but the fancy, vintage-inspired artwork featuring busty mascot Stache Bomb Stacy straddling a bomb on the can alone is enough to make me start. That, and the manly pine scent. BUY IT

Woodsman Mustache Wax

Woodsman Mustache Wax

This is the second time that Woodsman Mustache Wax has appeared on GearMoose, and for good reason. The can itself is topped with a branded cedarwood label, while the wax inside smells of rich Texas Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Pine Needles. It provides not only an amazing hold, but it also conditions your mustache thanks to a petroleum-free concoction of Beeswax, Lanolin, Cocoa Butter, and Jojoba oil. They have some other cool stuff too so check out their website here. BUY IT

Moustache Wrestler Mustache Wax

Moustache Wrestler Mustache Wax

Most mustache waxes are either petroleum-based or crafted from beeswax. Moustache Wrestler Mustache Wax uses neither, and instead offers an all natural, handmade alternative to other waxes on the market, complete with sustainably grown sandalwood oil from Australia. It also features an old school mustachioed wrestler from around the year 1900 who is sporting a wax belt buckle while assuring you that he’ll tackle even the toughest of your stache hairs with a smile on his face. BUY IT

Firehouse Moustache Wax

Firehouse Moustache Wax

Being a firefighter by trade, I couldn’t help but include Firehouse Mustache Wax on this list. Since firefighters aren’t typically permitted to wear a full beard for safety reasons, most everyone of them sports a mustache at some point in their career. Fighting fires in the scorching heat and humidity of the summer months can be tough on a mustache, which is why Mississippi Firefighter John Pitts designed this wax to withstand both. Available in light, dark, and wacky tacky. BUY IT

Damn Handsome Moustache Wax

Damn Handsome Moustache Wax

If you took the time growing an awesome mustache, you might as well take care of it. Proper mustache treatment is essential for any man sporting the Mo, and a good place to start is with a can of Damn Handsome Moustache Wax. Each tin is handcrafted and hand poured from hops, vegetable waxes, mango, and shea butter for added control, strength, and conditioning, with scents of cedar and sage thrown in for good measure. It will leave your mustache feeling smooth and looking dapper. It can also be used as a lip balm during the dry winter months. BUY IT

Mr. Bumgrope's Fat Spatula Mustache Wax

Mr. Bumgrope’s Fat Spatula Moustache Wax

Mr. Bumgrope’s Fat Spatula is another vintage-inspired mustache wax on this list featuring a mustache-clad tough guy branded onto the lid. While the name is a bit silly and in no way rolls off of the tongue easily, it is quite a functional can of wax. Its a mixture of 100% natural beeswax and organic extra-virgin raw Samoan coconut oil that not only spruces up your mustache and makes it smell of delicious coconut, pine needles, and rum, but can also be used to tackle other manly chores around the house such as lubricating a stuck chainsaw or treating your favorite pair of leather boots. BUY IT

Fat Jacks Tash Wax

Fat Jack’s Tash Wax

We don’t know who Fat jack is, but he must’ve had one helluva stache to make his own stache tash wax. Tongue twisters aside, Fat Jacks is a cool name, on a cool can, and is priced at only a few bucks—making it an ideal styling solution for mustaches on a budget. Its made from cosmetic grade beeswax, white soft Paraffin BP, virgin olive oil, and is available in unscented and mint flavors. BUY IT

Mustache Pete's Mustache Wax

Mustache Pete’s Mustache Wax

Known as “The Dapper Man’s Best Friend”, Mustache Pete’s Mustache Wax is best applied right before you doing all of those awesome things that men did back when men were men and wore mustaches while they drag raced their ’55 Chevy hot rods and smoked camel cigarettes. The can boasts vintage-inspired artwork, while the wax inside is crafted from locally harvested and triple filtered beeswax that smells of the sweet pipe tobacco your grandfather used to smoke while twirling his mustache.
