If you're a drinker, you know that beer goes great with pretty much everything in life: beer and barbecues, beer and nuts, beer and burritos, the list goes on and on. But what about beer and beauty products?
If you think the latter sounds a bit odd, thing again because beer is actually a great ingredient in everything from products for your hair to your skin. Plus, beer fans won't be able to resist the distinctive scent.
In honor of International Beer Day, we've rounded up some beauty products made with actual beer. Take a look:
1. Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo, Lush
This shampoo is produced using an organic vegan stout ale. It makes your hair smooth and glossy thanks to the protein in the beer. Not to mention that it smells like a delicious cocktail thanks to the ale, lemon, and cognac oil formula.
2. Beer Shampoo & Body Bar, Damn Handsome
This bar does it all. It contains local beer, as well as spent grains and vegetable oils, to gently cleanse your body from head to toe.
3. Shampoo Bar, Meow Meow Tweet
You get adorable packaging and a beer formula with this versatile bar. The mix of beer, jojoba oils, and aloe vera helps to nourish your hair and body.
4. Beer Beauty Set, Carlsberg
It makes sense that a beer brand would get involved in beer beauty. This trio contains a shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion. Each bottle has half a liter of freeze-dried Carlsberg beer.
5. Payback Porter Soap, Etta + Bille
This organic soap is made in small batches. It has a subtle malt scent that beer lovers will enjoy. They will also like the fact that it is gentle on skin.
6. Thickening Conditioner, BRöö
Beer can do the hair good. This conditioner uses an all-malt, freshly-hopped craft beer as the star ingredient. It's rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins to help give you a shiny, thick head of hair.
7. Beer Soap With IPA And Ground Hops, Swag Brewery
Ground hops and IPA craft beer come together in this soap. It has a herbal scent with a bit of spice that will make your mouth water a little bit.
