I have been testing Balbo Beard Co #1 Beard Oil for the past few days , it’s a Sandalwood and Grapefruit scented beard oil.
Balbo Beard Co is a new Beard care brand that has been launched by Rhian Gurney and she is one of only a couple of Beard care brands that I have come across that is not run by a guy with a beard! Now that is not a negative, a brand I tested early last year had the woman’s touch and it was damn good!
I actually feel quite under pressure with this review, Brendan from the very popular Beard Club group on Facebook has received these oils as well and he is a very knowledgeable guy with an incredible beard and he is waiting to see my opinion!
Balbo Beard Co #1 Beard Oil is made up from Grapeseed, Jojoba and Argan Oil, this creates a medium consistency beard oil. Grapeseed is a popular oil as it is quickly absorbed and won’t leave your beard feeling greasy and has non-inflammatory properties and helps reduce acne. Jojoba is a very good oil as it’s very similar to the oil secreted by our sebaceous glands and it helps to moisturise, nourish and protect. Argan oil is one of the best oils for your beard, it’s a heavier oil that is used to soften the beard hair and it prevents split ends and helps to reduce frizz.
Without a doubt my beard felt softer whilst using Balbo Beard Co #1 Beard Oil and the sweet, warm and woody Sandalwood and the fresh Grapefruit combination works very well and has been balanced very well.
This old boys wire wool beard was not only feeling softer but it also gave it that healthy sheen you get from a good and well chosen blend of carrier oils and the scent isn’t overpowering nor is it too weak. All in all this is a nice Beard Oil and I don’t think you would be disappointed in anyway with it.
