Yesterday the postman delivered a package that had come from America, inside was a bottle of Wood Shed Whiskerroil and I then remembered that I had managed to get 3rd place in the Beardoholic beard competition http://beardoholic.com/contest/
The bottle size is one fluid ounce (US) which is dribble short of 30ml and its the first beard oil that I have had that has a spray applicator. The label is adorned with a label that has a beard logo with a W running through it and it’s says Waffen Der Whiskerroil which I believe is German and roughly translates as Weapon of the Whiskerroil.
I didn’t have a smell of the oil because it is a spray applicator and I had already been through my daily beard grooming and so decided to wait until the next day as it was beard wash day (I wash twice a week and rinse twice daily) and so a clean start with the oil would give it a proper test. However my wife returned home and wanted to know what it smelled like and so I pumped a small amount into my hand and I can honestly say that she hasn’t been so impressed with the smell of any other beard oil!
Whiskerroil http://whiskerroil.com/ say this about Wood Shed ‘Wood Shed is a subtle blend of Teakwood, Mahogany, Cedar and Oak that will take you back to your grandpa’s wood shop’
Now unfortunately my Gramps didn’t have a wood shed but I have been in many Timber merchants (Lumber yards) and this oil really is reminiscent of the smell of all the freshly sawn wood and the sawdust on the floor.
So today my beard has been treated to a wash and conditioner, unfortunately at the moment I am having a pain flare up and apart from pain and fatigue, I also get dry skin and my beard gets dry because I am so run down, I have struggled with a dry beard for a couple of days and so I wondered if I could properly review this oil, but I definitely can!
I brushed my beard and then applied a spray and a small spray to my hand and worked it into beard, the smell of freshly sawn wood or the smell of oiling wooden furniture is pleasant and not at all overpowering, the oil is itself is made up of Hemp seed, apricot kernel, jojoba and coconut oil and feels good.
Whiskerroil has left my beard feeling incredible, now I’m not just saying this and if didn’t like something about an oil, I would say because I want these reviews to be of use to my fellow bearded men and hopefully I will build a good catalogue of reviews that are trusted.
My beard isn’t dry and it isn’t greasy, Whiskerroil is an oil that is mixed perfectly, its not too light nor too heavy and I’m gutted that this beard oil is sold in America and not over here, the price of shipping makes it pricey. The oil is $15 and the shipping label showed it was $10.50 to ship to the UK, but if you want a first class oil and you are willing to pay the shipping, then Whiskerroil is the one to buy, if you live in America, then you are very lucky!
Edit – I have just realised that of course we are talking dollars here and so that at today’s rates is £17.86 delivered for a 1oz bottle which as I said is almost 30ml and so for a decent top quality oil bought in the UK, you are looking at about the same money, maybe more for some on sale in the UK. This oil is worth the money but remember to keep an eye on the exchange rates!
