Mountaineer Brand Magic Beard Balm Original took me by surprise, I don’t check out a product before I test it because I don’t want to be influenced by what I read. So when I saw ‘Original’, I naturally assumed that this was an unscented balm, which is usually the case with other brands!

In fact Mountaineer Brand Magic Beard Balm Original is a Lime, Fir Needle and Grapefruit scented balm and it smells very nice indeed. First one that hit me was that fresh Lime scent, the Grapefruit and Fir Needle sit behind and it works very well creating a very fresh smelling balm.

The balm is a blend of all natural oils and butters, beeswax and Vitamin E oil and this is what all beard care products should be like, natural and made in small batches and after testing over 150 beard care products, I have found the best products are made this way.

Mountaineer Brand Magic Beard Balm Original has a soft consistency even in this colder weather, some balms are rock solid this time of year. It is easily melted in your palms and works into your beard very well, of course the balm is just as beneficial to the skin under your beard as it is for the beard hair. My beard was left with a slight hold and the scent lasted throughout the day, my beard was noticeably softer and looked good. An all natural beard balm will help to prevent itchy and dry skin and so it is important to work the balm in thoroughly and down onto the skin.

Contained in a 2 oz (60g) tin Mountaineer Brand Magic Beard Balm Original costs $12.50 which is £10.17 or €12.01 (exchange rate on 2/1/17) or you can save 10% if you take the Balm on subscription and is available from the Mountaineer Brand website.

About Mountaineer Brand

Mountaineer Brand was started in 2013 by Eric Young. Eric personally researches and develops his product with a passion that can be seen in his work. Mountaineer Brand was born after Eric struggled to find quality beard care products at a price that he could easily work into his already tight budget. Eric began to make beard oil and balm in his kitchen thinking it would be a nice hobby and that he could supplement his meager income.
