Last but not least of the five Dead Rugged oils is the Dead Rugged Beard Care ‘Bay Rum’ Beard Oil.
If I had to choose a least favourite beard care scent, I would probably say its the pirate like scents, the Bay Rum based scents. The reason why is that on 99% of them I get a strong scent of Clove from the Bay. I hate Clove because, well its awful and reminds me of toothache as a child and my parents telling me to put Clove oil on it. I think it worked because the Clove was so bad it distracted me from the tooth!
The Dead Rugged Beard Care ‘Bay Rum’ Beard Oil is in the 1% and doesn’t have that strong Clove scent!
The scent is a blend of West Indies Bay, Lime, Ginger, Sandalwood Amyris and Cinnamon Leaf. The result is a warm and spicy scent but it also has a freshness to it as well. I would say that if you like the Bay Rum scents then try it, this is a nice one and has been blended well but I don’t think I will personally ever be totally won over with this type of scent.
The base as with all of the Dead Rugged beard oils is a blend of six carrier oils, Hemp Seed, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel, Grapeseed, Hazelnut and Natural Vitamin E carrier oils, it is a very nice blend and leaves my beard feeling softer. The oil is absorbed into the beard easily and it leaves it with that healthy sheen.
What amazes me about the Dead Rugged oils is the price, on the website for £5.99 you get a 30ml oil in a glass bottle with a glass dropper to dispense the oils.
Being a new brand can be tough, there are already a massive amount of beard care brands and so trying to get a foot in the door isn’t easy. However have been extremely impressed with the Dead Rugged Beard Care oils, the base is a good one that does without doubt leave your beard softer and feeling good. The scents are very well thought out and there is something for everyone and the price will attract the guys.
The oils are also available as;
- Outlaw – Vetivert, Ho leaf, Caraway and Sandalwood Amyris
- City Slicker – Grapefruit, Rosewood, Spearmint, Neroli
- Yokel – Ylang Ylang, Black Pepper, Frankincense, Mandarin.
- Dead Original – Unscented
