Cedarwood, Lime, Pure Sicilian Bergamot & Grapefruit, blended perfectly, that is why the review of Balbo Beard Co #8 Beard Oil has the Golden Beard Award, unfortunately there is a price to pay for that and it’s that it is by far the dearest of the Balbo Beard Co oils. Edit: price has now been reduced
I already knew that the oil would leave my beard feeling soft and looking good, the base of Grapeseed, Jojoba and Argan carrier oils are quickly absorbed leaving the beard with a healthy sheen. They will also help to make sure your skin under the beard is also taken care of.
The scent is very good, a sweet and citrus aroma with a slight woodsy scent from the Cedarwood. I am fussy when it comes to Cedarwood, I don’t particularly like it on its own but when it is blended with the right oils like it is here, then I think it really offers something to an oil.
This really is an oil to try but as I said it is dearer than the other oils as you can see above, in fact it is about £10 dearer than some of the oils and I think that may mean it isn’t as popular as the others. The #3 Beard Oil was my favourite, A blend of Sandalwood and Pure Sicilian Bergamot and priced at £14.99, however if you can afford this oil, it is very very good.
Balbo Beard Co #8 Beard Oil comes in a 30ml amber coloured glass bottle to prevent the UV light spoiling the oil, it is available from either the Balbo Beard Co website or from their Etsy shop for
£24.99 Price has now been revised to £17.99. The oils are also available as 10ml bottles or 3ml samples and Balbo Beard Co also sells a very good Beard Soap
