The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Charlatan' Beard Oil

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Charlatan’ Beard Oil

It is rare that a beard oil containing Cedarwood wins me over, but that is exactly what The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Charlatan’ Beard Oil has done. The very best beard oils are the best because not only have they got the base right, but also the essential oils used to create the scent have been blended perfectly. This means that all of the oils works together, you don’t get a smack of one oil that drowns out the rest and that is what we have […]

She doesn’t like my beard!

One of the things I hear most often is “She doesn’t like my beard”. Some of you are lucky to have girlfriends or wives and even boyfriends and husbands that like beards and they like the fact you have a beard. However more often than not, our loved ones don’t approve of our beard or they think it should be kept shorter. My wife was very anti beard but now she says she would be happy if it was kept short and tidy. So what […]

The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Peaky Blinder' Beard Balm

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Peaky Blinder’ Beard Balm

If I wasn’t testing beard care all of the time, I would choose a balm over oil because I like the way it gives hold to my beard and I think my beard feels better with a good balm. The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Peaky Blinder’ Beard Balm does exactly that, it’s a very nice balm like the rest of the range of balms and it leaves my beard feeling softer and looking good.  Quyen Dinh designed The Bearded Rapscallion branding. Even though I have mentioned […]

Southend University Hospital referral refusal

Southend University Hospital referral refusal

This is a copy of an email that I have just sent to the CFS team at Southend University Hospital. I saw my GP and was referred to the clinic as my symptoms have become so bad that I have been housebound for the last year and a half. The referral was refused!   I am sending this email about a refusal of referral because not only does it not make sense, it is also unfair and ridiculous! I was diagnosed with ME or CFS […]

The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Peaky Blinder' Beard Oil

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Peaky Blinder’ Beard Oil

The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Peaky Blinder’ Beard Oil has that citrus scent combined with vanilla that I loved in ‘The Loveable Rogue’ beard oil but with the addition of Spearmint. I have been unsure about this scent combination, this oil has Tangerine in the blend where as ‘The Loveable Rogue’ has Sweet Orange, Tangerine has a more intense aroma but I felt the Spearmint in this oil is masking the citrus and vanilla scents too much and that is a shame, I think the Spearmint could be […]

The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Loveable Rogue' Beard Balm

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Loveable Rogue’ Beard Balm

I just had to use The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Loveable Rogue’ Beard Balm after I had tested and reviewed ‘The Loveable Rogue’ beard oil, it was merely a decision based on the fact that I love the scent and I love beard balm. And so I guess it is no surprise that I have awarded it the Golden Beard Award and if you regularly read my reviews, you will notice that this is new and it used to be the Gold Cup Award, I felt that a […]

The Great Escape!

Last year I left the house 15 times and this year up to June I had been out 7 times, these were mainly visits to the doctor or the hospital. To make matters worse, I couldn’t even get into the garden because of a high threshold on the patio doors and a patio that was split into three levels and so I spent all my time indoors.   In June of this year my wife started a Just Giving page to fund an accessible decking […]

The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Loveable Rogue' Beard Oil

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Loveable Rogue’ Beard Oil

The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Loveable Rogue’ Beard Oil has only furthered my love of this brand, I love beard care products with a citrus scent and so the Sweet Orange and Vanilla scent of this oil has added the cherry on top of the bearded cake.   So I guess it is no surprise that I awarded this beard oil the Golden Beard Award, first off the branding is first class and that is backed up by the product inside their bottles and jars. The […]

Fellows For Him 'Coconut & Lime' Beard & Hair Shampoo

Review: Fellows For Him ‘Coconut & Lime’ Beard & Hair Shampoo

I have been using the Fellows For Him ‘Coconut & Lime’ Beard & Hair Shampoo, the scent is amazing and reminds me of being on holiday covered in sun tan lotion (sorry for the hideous image now in your head). The Fellows For Him ‘Coconut & Lime’ Beard & Hair Shampoo has a green gel like appearance and comes in a plastic bottle with a flip lid. I squirted some into my hand and rubbed it into my wet beard, I actually received the slightest lather […]

The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Charlatan' Beard Balm

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Charlatan’ Beard Balm

I like good branding and The Bearded Rapscallion has that covered for sure, branding is a very difficult thing to get right and without a doubt we are drawn to products that have good branding. Branding is so important that £400,000 was spent on the logo for the London 2012 Olympic Games. So The Bearded Rapscallion already has a massive head start with their branding and when ever I share their posts, I get comments on the design. Of course the product inside has to […]
