I have received the Nathan & Sons Airport Coffee Overnight Face & Beard Butter for review along with a beard balm and oil of the same scent from this new brand who are based in Northern Ireland.
And it was very nicely presented in a card box with the products wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a sticker bearing the brands logo and with a card for each product explaining how to use their product!
When I was asked if I would like to review for the brand, I was asked what scent I would like to receive.
Their scents are;
- Airport Coffee
- Cookie Addict
- Tobacco & Vanilla
- Vanilla Latte
I said I would like to review either the Airport Coffee or the Tobacco & Vanilla and that is because both scents are very telling, they can be amazing or the complete opposite.
And of course as you know, I received the Airport Coffee scent.
The base for the Overnight Face & Beard Butter is a blend of;
- Vitamin E Blended in Sunflower Oil
- Food Grade Cocoa Butter
- White Beeswax Pellets
- Shea Butter
- Grapeseed Oil
- Jojoba Oil
Beard butters are very varied, I have had very soft and greasy butters, I have had whipped butters and I have even had a butter that was so solid it had to be scraped from the tin!
The Nathan & Sons Airport Coffee Overnight Face & Beard Butter is a very soft consistency and that is during a very cold spell of weather and a Polar Bear would complain about the cold in our bungalow.
I do wonder how it will fare in the summer when the temperatures hit the high 20°c’s?
For me it is a bit too soft, I am still searching for the perfect beard butter after my favourite butter was no longer available!
The Airport Coffee scent is described by Nathan & Son as ‘Dark roasted coffee beans fragranced with a gentle touch of cocoa‘.
And it is a decent coffee scent, as I said the coffee scent can be very hit or miss and go from a stunning scent to feeling like you have stale coffee in your beard and the Airport Coffee scent from Nathan & Son is a nice scent.
It is not the best coffee scent that I have had in a beard care product but it is very nicely done and it lasts a very long time in your beard. I applied some in the late evening and woke up to the scent of it on my beard the next morning.
It is a nice beard butter, it isn’t the best I have ever tried but it very far from the worst. It is just an honest product and despite the fact that I personally think it is a bit too soft, its a nice butter.
And as I said, the scent is decent!
I didn’t use it as a face butter, I am very happy and enjoy using these products on my beard and have even used a few in my hair and even used balm a couple of times on my skin but although this is a decent scent, I wouldn’t want it all over my face. (personal opinion)
You can tell that this is a new brand by the branding and I don’t say that in a negative sense or to have a dig.
I have seen this with quite a few brands when they start out.
The start up costs are not cheap and especially as we have no exited from the EU which I have been told by a few brand owners, has pushed prices and delivery prices up.
So most brands start with a branding that looks like a start up brand and then as they start to turn a profit and get established, the branding gets more polished and the labels are a higher quality.
