The Gonzalez Beard Co ‘Vanilla Blood Dragon’ Beard Oil is very different from any oil I have tested before, the scent is very interesting but complicated and the oil feels unlike other beard oils.
I dropped some of the oil into my palm and warmed it in my hands, now normally an oil is, well its oily and has that slippery oily feel. Gonzalez Beard Co ‘Vanilla Blood Dragon’ Beard Oil feels different, initially it’s the same but within a couple of seconds there is friction and it feels like that hair spray type of friction.
The oil is made up from Sweet Almond oil, Jojoba oil, Baobab oil, into which Geranium, Dragons Blood, Vanilla and Cannabis is added. Yes I said Dragon’s Blood but it’s not what you think, it is in fact a resin that is gathered from a few different species of plants.
I can only but guess that this is where the Gonzalez Beard Co ‘Vanilla Blood Dragon’ Beard Oil gets that friction type feel to it. As you can imagine this then results in the beard having a hold that feels very slightly like it has been given a light spray of hair spray but not so much so that it feels weird.
The scent has a lot going on, it has a sweet and almost spiciness but there is so much going on scent wise that I found it very difficult to place the scents and I think they all seem to be trying to out compete each other.
However that isn’t saying that it’s a bad scent, it is quite pleasant but I would have liked to have been able to be able to smell some of those scents better, Vanilla and geranium are very nice scents but they seem lost in this blend.
Made in Sweden the Gonzalez Beard Co ‘Vanilla Blood Dragon’ Beard Oil comes in a 30ml bottle with a glass dropper to dispense the oil. The labels only contain the info you see in the photo and some extra info would be useful. The oil costs €10 and is available through their Instagram account as the website is still a work in progress.
