I regret to inform you that the owner of this brand passed away on the weekend of 27/28th January 2018. Thoughts are with his family. RiP
Tactical Beard Oil ‘Happy Soldier’ Beard Oil is probably exactly what it says, you see Tactical Beard Oil was as its says on the ‘About Us’ page on their website ‘born on an early summers eve when a group of bearded personnel were unhappy with the way their beards were being maintained in the hot and sandy climate’ and so going from a hot and dusty beard with an idea to being able to use this oil on their beard, must be the best feeling.
You see the idea that they came up with, has not only been created, its incredible! ‘Happy Soldier’ from Tactical Beard Oil is a blend of Sweet almond oil, Jojoba oil, Argan oil, Grape seed and Vitamin E carrier oils.
Added to that incredible base is organically sourced lime, Orange, Lemon, Sandal Wood, Cedar Wood, Pine needle, Jasmine, Cypress and Mandarin essential oils and wow does that blend work!
As you can imagine the base is rich and gives your beard a good hold, those five carrier oils leave your beard feeling soft and looking healthy and the ten, yes ten essential oils have been blended perfectly that no one oil over powers any of the others and that is the mark of a good oil and it can’t have been easy using ten essential oils.
This is an oil that has made it into my favourites and it has been a pleasure to test it!
‘Happy Soldier’ from Tactical Beard Oil comes in a glass bottle that has a black coating to help protect those precious oils from UV damage, many carrier oils actually have a shelf life and this can be shortened if the oil is left in direct light. The bottle comes complete with a glass dropper to dispense your oil without any fuss.
‘Happy Soldier’ is available for £19.99 for 30ml from the Tactical Beard Oils website along with their other oils which are:
‘Sandalwood Sniper’, ‘Tactical Tea Tree’, ‘Peppermint Para’, ‘Spearmint Sabotage’ and ‘Covert’ which is unscented and costs £14.99 for 30ml and it’s not often that you see the unscented oils sold for less than the scented oils, ‘Covert’ can also be used as a shaving oil. Shaving?
Tactical Beard Oils also state “Given that our oils are totally organic you could double it up as an emergency gun oil”
