The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Racketeer' Beard Balm

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Racketeer’ Beard Balm

With a scent of Sweet orange, Wild honey, Clove & Cinnamon, The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Racketeer’ Beard Balm has managed to convince me that Clove can actually be okay in beard care when blended well, in fact, I will go as far as to say that I like the Clove scent in this balm! The sweet scent of the honey is perfect and the Clove and the Cinnamon are the perfect companions and the Sweet Orange is very subtle. This is a very nice scent, it’s not too […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Whit & Stubble 'Signature Blend' Beard Balm

Review: Whit & Stubble ‘Signature Blend’ Beard Balm

If I wasn’t testing, I would always use balm, I prefer it to oil and the Whit & Stubble ‘Signature Blend’ Beard Balm didn’t disappoint. It’s a creamy yellow colour balm as they have used yellow beeswax in the blend and added to that is Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil and Sweet Almond Oil. This has created a medium consistency balm that is very easy to work with and it absorbed into my beard without leaving it looking greasy. I liked the feel of the Whit & […]

Balbo Beard Co '#7' Beard Balm

Review: Balbo Beard Co ‘#7’ Beard Balm

I was sent Balbo Beard Co ‘#7’ Beard Balm along with the ‘#5‘ balm and they are damn amazing. The Balms come in a 60ml glass jar with a black screw top lid, the ‘#7’ is an unscented balm for those of you who don’t like scented beard care products or if you are adding balm on top of your favourite beard oil, but you could also mix or match scents. The base for this scent is made up from Organic Shea Butter, Organic Beeswax, […]

Balbo Beard Co '#5' Beard Balm

Review: Balbo Beard Co ‘#5’ Beard Balm

I was sent Balbo Beard Co ‘#5’ Beard Balm ahead of its launch and oh my sweet beard God’s it’s amazing! The base for this scent is made up from Organic Shea Butter, Organic Beeswax, Hemp Seed Oil, Argan Oil, this has created a balm with a medium to firm consistency, it is still easily scooped from the jar and also works in the palms easily and is quickly ready to apply. A small amount goes a long way and it works into the beard […]

Beardlab Darwin Beard Butter

Review: Beardlab Darwin Beard Butter

I was confident that Beardlab Darwin Beard Butter was going to be a good product, the previous Beardlab products I have tested have been very good and I wasn’t wrong. Contained in a 50g glass jar with a screw lid the Beardlab Darwin Beard Butter has a scent that many will recognise. Beardlab say it is the smell of Starburst sweets or if you are old like me, Opal Fruits, I have no idea why they keep changing the names, anyway I won’t start moaning […]

The Bearded Rapscallion 'The Jolly Rascal' Beard Balm

Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Jolly Rascal’ Beard Balm

The first thing people say about this brand when I post a photo, is how much they love the branding. The Bearded Rapscallion logo was designed for us by the awesomely talented artist Quyen Dinh of Parlour Tattoo Prints and I have to agree, it looks damn good. I have been using The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Jolly Rascal’ Beard Balm for the past few days. Added to the superb branding is the fact that they use glass jars for their balms and it gives the […]

Merry Band Beard Oil 'Beard Balm'

Review: Merry Band Beard Oil ‘Beard Balm’

Merry Band Beard Oil ‘Beard Balm’ is a fresh Peppermint aroma with the woodsy and citrus scented Rosemary and aromatic Lavender. The blend of essential oils works very well and the scents have been balanced very well, I guess some guys might be hesitant to use a product on their beard that contains Rosemary and Lavender, but it is in no way feminine and it works very well in a beard care product. The Balm has a slight grainy texture which is from the wax […]
