Are the Men in Your Life Suffering from Junkface?

I’m happy to say that my guy does not have Junkface – though I’m sure a few of his friends are plagued with this serious, and totally gross, problem.

Okay. I can tell that you’re wondering what the heck Junkface is, am I right? Junkface is caused when the same bar of soap is used to clean a man’s unmentionable parts (also known as “junk”) AND their face.

I love that the folks at Neutrogena aren’t afraid to bring this touchy topic out into the open. Their Ipsos Reid survey of 1,400 Canadian men found that 72% admitted to using their soap for double-duty (Eewwwww!). Our Canadian boys have Junkface!

The Neutrogena campaign is completely hilarious (and spot on)! Just checkout this video…

Really, no one should be using a bar of soap on their facial skin. One reason is that soap can strip away the natural oils your skin needs – you need to use a product designed specifically for facial skin, and your facial skin.

Ladies, if you know of someone that may be afflicted with Junkface, help them. #StopJunkface

Check out Neutrogena’s great line of products for guys, including two face washes, a moisturizer with SPF, post shave lotion, shave gel, and shave cream.
