I received a very nice little parcel from Detroit Grooming company, inside was a tin containing five 0.5 fl oz. (about 15ml)  bottles of their Beard Oil for review and one was Detroit Grooming Co ‘Orchard lake’ Beard Oil.

‘The Orchard Lake’ an oil named after a 795 acre lake in Michigan with an island that is 35 acres and has an Orc myself. hard planted on it.


This oil is a burst of freshness, Orange and Vanilla essential oils on a blend of Sweet Almond, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed, Safflower Seed, Rice Bran, Apricot Kernel, Avocado and Wheat Germ carrier oils. ‘Orchard Lake’ smells incredible and keeps your beard smelling good all day long, its eight hours since I worked some into my beard and if I lift my moustache to my nose, its still smelling great.

The oil is a light oil and gives a gentle hold to the beard keeping it in place, although if you are anything like me, you mess your beard up within an hour by fiddling with it.

Its kept my beard feeling soft and less like steel wool as it can do without care, its also a very gentle oil and hasn’t flared up my skin, if I use something that isn’t gentle then I get dry skin build up behind my ears and so I am always careful to make sure I only use products that are natural and gentle.

This is what Detroit Grooming say about this oil

Named after an unusual lake in Michigan, Orchard Lake is like a soft, fresh breeze of vanilla across an orange orchard. The lake is unusual because there is a large 35 acre island in the middle of the lake and as we know, every man is an island. The fresh scent of bursting oranges and the wisp of vanilla will have people taking a number to smell your face. Yes. That IS a good thing. Not to mention that the orange essential oils contained help with depression, boost immunity, and give you that smooth healthy skin that’ll have your face saying, “Thank you!”

Our foundation of Sweet Almond Oil is loaded with many skin and hair benefits. Rich in vitamins A, B and E, Sweet Almond Oil helps in maintaining moisture levels of the skin and gets absorbed quickly without blocking pores like so many other oils. Whether you’re looking to improve your complexion, moisturize better, soothe skin irritation by relieving dryness, nourish your skin, or even cure the chapped lips hiding in your beard, this is exactly what you need. That’s just your skin! In the hair? Well, almond oil is rich in magnesium, gets rid of split ends, and leaves your beard shiny and soft. It is a reparative solution that can be used daily to saturate deeper than most oils and reverse damage. It contains a higher content of mono-saturated fatty acids than any other oil, making it the most intensely moisturizing oil available. It’s chock-full of antioxidants and proteins to repair your skin and hair!

The oil is available in the 0.5 fl oz size for $12.95 or 1 fl oz as in photo above for $21.95 or you can purchase the tin of five 0.5 fl oz bottles for $29.95 which means each bottle then only costs $7.99.
