The Brighton Beard Company Beard Oils

The Brighton Beard Company ‘Old Jolls’ Beard Oil – 10ml (£7.95)

This one is obviously for the men but specifically aimed at the bearded amongst us.  I’ve had a beard now for several years, but have never considered using a beard oil.  So I’ve been road testing these three from The Brighton Beard Company.  The oils come in small 10ml brown glass bottles, which is good as they contain essential oils that would otherwise degrade in day light. There is also a pipette within the screw top, that makes using them nice and easy.

So the first decision you have to make is what fragrance are you going to go for?  Personally, I like them all.  Apply a few drops onto your fingers and massage thoroughly into the beard.  Within an hour or so, the oil will have spread.

If you’ve not used a beard oil before, initially you’ll need to experiment with the amount required.  This will depend on the thickness and length of your beard.  Short beards require just one or two drops of oil, where as big thick bushy beards may require more. Should you find your beard or face feel greasy or oily, then you’ve used too much.

Once you’ve cracked it, the optimum amount of beard oil will provide a glossy well groomed beard, with bristles that stand erect and feel ‘freshly washed’ to the touch. If your beard is multi toned, this will also be enhanced, an almost wet like appearance.

Now the ingredients. The base oils of Jojoba and Sweet Almond oil have been cleverly combined with Argan and Vitamin E oil, providing not only hair supporting properties but also skin moisturising benefits.  If you suffer with spots or irritation under your beard, your skin will benefit from the additional tea tree oil, which has both antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.  The scents are clean, masculine and citrus, all of which quickly disperse.

The Brighton Beard Company currently make three beard oils.  The ingredients within them are fully Del Brown Approved being 100% natural with no added preservatives, synthetic colours or perfumes.

Now I’m in the habit of using a beard oil, I’m a complete convert and addict!
