Although marketed as a skin care for men line, there is no reason that women wouldn't enjoy using it. The scent is light and not "manly".

It's intended for men, but there's no reason that women couldn't use it - I tried it when it was given to me as a sample, and I liked it a lot. It's nice that it has antioxidants and vitamins!

The Jack Black brand is not exclusively for men. I think it is a good way to get your man to wear products that are good for his skin but women can also use such stuff as the moisturizer and other products. This is not too harsh for a girl to wear.

I received a small sample of this at Sephora and really liked it. However, my forehead is oily and prone to break-outs, so a moisturizer being non-comedogenic is really important to me. I tried googling it, but couldn't find a solid answer, so I e-mailed Jack Black, and this is what they replied:

"Thank you for your inquiry regarding our Double-Duty Face Moisturizer SPF 20. We do not specifically test for it being non-comedogenic, however it was formulated with ingredients that should not clog your pores or cause you to break out. This is one of our best selling products and I have never received any complaints about it causing acne, blackheads/whiteheads or clogging pores."

So, no, it's not explicitly non-comedogenic. But when I sampled it, it was REALLY lightweight and not greasy at all, unlike every other moisturizer I've tried. I'm willing to purchase it and give it a shot--especially with Sephora's great return policy (if it does cause me to break out, I can return it).

The scent in this product is really light, and I honestly wouldn't care if it's "supposed" to be for men. I'm a woman and I haven't noticed any bad effects from using this.

Question
Formulated without parabens?
It says this product has the Green Seal, and is formulated without parabens. Yet methylparaben is listed as an ingredient.
Can you explain?

The current formulation (which isn't very new) of Double Duty doesn't use parabens at all.

You can distinguish it from the original version by the addition of Jack Black's green PureScience logo on the front of the bottle. And also, of course, by the ingredients list on the back.

Methyl Paraben is different than Parabens. Methyl paraben is used as a binder in creams & lotions as well as other products. Not alot is used; it is a negligeable amount.

I quickly looked up methylparabens, and apparently it's safe for use on skin, even on sensitive skin.

According to an article on eHow: "Methylparaben is considered to be a safe substance. It is easily absorbed through both the skin as well as through the gastrointestinal tract. It quickly is excreted and eliminated without any building up inside of the body. It is non-toxic by parenteral and oral consumption. It works well with sensitive skin types and is gentle and non-irritating."

The only warning it lists is for people who are allergic to it. It seems to be safe to use because it doesn't remain in your system long enough to heavily affect it. But if you're really concerned, I'd suggest asking a dermatologist about methylparabens.

Hope this helps!

There are no parabens (including methylparaben) in the current formulation of Double Duty. Sephora's ingredients list is out of date.

Jack Black changed Double Duty to a "PureScience" formula a couple years ago which is paraben-free.

I plan on buying the 8.5oz bottle, but I'm just using it by myself, and since im only using it in the morning, i'm not sure if i can finish the whole thing in 12 months. Should this be a problem for me, and should i go with the smaller bottle instead?

I share the same concern but I guess it was sephora's mistake when making the list, who knows! The fact is the list of ingredients on the packaging does not contain any form of parabens.

Sephora's ingredients are out of date. Double Duty doesn't contain parabens and hasn't for quite a while.

If you're shopping in-store, look for the green PureScience logo on the front of the bottle. That's the branding Jack Black uses for products free of parabens, fragrances, and colorants.
