Three days ago I opened the tin of Bangin Beards ‘Coconut Rum’ Beard Balm, first off is that this is a very firm balm.
It has been many years since I indulged in a tipple and back then it certainly wasn’t a Coconut Rum. So I rooted round in my wife’s beside cabinet and finally came out with an appropriate bottle for comparison.
The scent is without a doubt Coconut Rum but obviously lacks that spirit punch I would be worried if it did. The scent is gentler than this popular tipple but they have captured it very well in this balm. This scent is made up by using fragrance oils rather than essential oils.
As I said previously, the balm is firm and maybe some. The balm is made up from Mango Butter, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Almond Oil and Grapeseed Oil. If you want a firm balm then this may suit.
I used the end of my metal comb to scrape some of the Bangin Beards ‘Coconut Rum’ Beard Balm out and then worked it in my palms. As you can imagine it took some extra work than other balms but it’s not the hardest balm I have tested. I worked the balm into my beard after using a Boars bristle brush and then used a wide toothed comb to finish.
For someone with an unruly beard like me, a firm balm is a very welcome thing. I know that many prefer a softer balm as they don’t like that firmer hold feel as your beard doesn’t feel so natural. My beard felt good, my beard had a firm hold but the beard hair felt soft and it gave my beard a healthy sheen. So job done!
