- Microwaving leftover pizza? Include a glass with a little of water to keep the crust from getting chewy.
- To get rid of wood scuffs on furniture, rub the area with your finger, then with a walnut.
- If you’re traveling and forget your charger, the TV in the hotel room usually has a USB plugin.
- Have a bag of Doritos? The crisps inside make great kindling.

These are called Life Hacks–any trick, shortcut, skill, or novelty method that increases productivity and efficiency.
We’re all about anything that increases productivity. Like body washes that work for body and hair. Like a cleanser and toner all-in-one. Like a shampoo that also conditions (and thickens hair).
That’s the way we roll at Jack Black®. You see, we know that the average human attention span is 8 seconds (it’s rumored that a goldfish’s is 9 seconds). So, once we have your attention, we like to keep it.
As it turns out, not only do we have your attention, you’ve come up with a few Jack Black Hacks of your own. Thanks for sharing them with us–now let’s share them with the rest of our Jack Black loyalists.
Intense Therapy Lip Balm SPF 25. Aside from nourishing dry, chapped, crack lips and protecting them from the sun, it turns out our famous Lip Balm is also great for nourishing dry cuticles and dry, chapped spots on the hands. We hear it’s great for those dry areas between fingers, too (tennis lovers and golf fanatics take note).
Post Shave Cooling Gel. Already great for soothing razor burn and irritation due to shaving, this Jack Black® brainchild also helps soothe sunburns.
Beard Oil. This #1 Beard Oil* helps prevent dry, itchy skin, hydrates dry, brittle facial hair, and delivers a conditioned, healthy-looking beard. Did you know…it’s also great for heat protection during styling (blow drying, straightening), and you can apply to your face and neck should your Double-Duty moisturiser run out.
Intense Therapy Hand Cream. Not only does this non-greasy formula provide instant relief for dry, chapped, or cracked hands, it also works as a foot cream and helps nourish dry knees and elbows.
Bump Fix® Razor Bump & Ingrown Hair Solution. The powerful salicylic and lactic acid solution helps reduce the appearance of razor bumps and ingrown hairs while it hydrates and soothes. If you have oily or acne-prone skin, Bump Fix can double as an astringent.
Eye Balm De-Puffing & Cooling Gel. While we’re at it, one of our favourites (thought up by your Jack Black staff) is to keep our soothing, de-puffing Eye Balm in the fridge! The cooled gel and stainless-steel rollerball applicator massages and cools on contact, making last night look like it never happened. Just apply in a circular motion around the eye socket, with medium to firm pressure. Repeat slowly up to 10 times.
