I have been really looking forward to testing this brand and I decided to start with Beard Juice ‘No 71 Grapefruit’ Beard Oil
People say that first impressions are important and Beard Juice have taken care of that, the 30ml/1.5 fl oz bottles arrive in their own individual cardboard tube with plastic stoppers at either end and it is adorned with the shiny Black and Gold beard Juice branding.
No 71 – Grapefruit Beard Oil from Beard Juice is part of their 7x line and is a base of Argan, Coconut, Almond, Hemp and Jojoba carrier oils with the addition of Grapefruit essential oil.
What you get is a fresh burst of Grapefruit that leaves your beard feeling amazing, it has an uplifting and invigorating citrus aroma that is the perfect way to start the day.
No 71 from beard Juice is perfect to not only make your beard smell great but it also makes it feel great as well. My beard feels soft with minimal hold leaving it feel natural, I know that some guys don’t like their beard to have too much hold and so this is perfect.
The 30ml bottle with glass dropper is adorned with the Beard Juice black and gold glossy label that gives their oils an upmarket feel. No 71 – Grapefruit Beard Oil from Beard Juice is available from their website for £10.90.
I would happily recommend Beard Juice, their oil is blended perfectly and the ratio of essential oil to carrier oil is just right. If you are looking for a beard oil then give Beard Juice a try!
I asked Wayne Pollard who is the creator of Beard Juice about why he used numbers for his beard oils and why the numbers in the Seventies? It all stemmed from his first oil No 73 named after his birth year, that has a scent that reminds him of visits to the barbers and so he kept the number system.
This is taken from their ‘About Us’ page:
Beard Juice was born from a love of the facial hair, and a desire to produce our own oil, with our choice of blended carrier oils and our choice of scent.
Having used lots of beard oils from many different companies and admittedly there are some very good brands out there, we still wanted to have our own oil and fly the flag for the UK in a American led market. We’re not saying that’s a bad thing, its just nice to have a great UK brand in amongst the mix!
We took it upon ourselves to produce our own products, ensuring the quality and content, and after many many MANY months of testing, we believe we have come up with a premium beard oil range, that is tailored for a man who wants the best.
Everything is hand made in Kent England. Every batch is low quantity and high quality. We only make what we need, when its needed.
We have no desire of dominating the market and accept there are other brands which some people will prefer, after all beard oil is all about personal preference. We just want to share our products with like minded Gents who want something that is just that little bit better.
We will constantly be evolving and adding to our product line, with the 5X line coming out soon. We plan to add a range of beard grooming kits, beard shampoo, beard balm and beard styling wax to name a few.
