Now there is no doubt in my family that this old boy loves a Cherry Bakewell and so when I was sent Bamboo Beard Co ‘Cherry Bakewell’ Beard Balm, I was over the moon! (just a saying, still on settee).
For those of you who have never sampled the delightful Cherry Bakewell cakes, it is Cherry and Almond and yep now I am craving one!…. “DONNA I NEED CAKE”
Now of course if you have read my previous reviews, you will know that I am a firm believer in 100% natural beard care, natural base and essential oils to create a scent, but obviously to create this scent, you are going to have to use fragrance oil. However I can forgive that as the scent is so good.
The scent is a slap in the face strength, just like the scent of a pot of the Glacé cherries that my mum would find empty (guilty) and a bar of yellow marzipan and personally those are two of my favourite scents.
When you take a scoop of the balm and warm it in your hands, the scent is over powering and I even had *cough* when I put my nose close to the warmed balm. However this dies down once you work it into your beard and you the scent lasts a good few hours.
The base is made up from a blend of Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Wheatgerm Oil, Rosehip Oil and Benzoin. Yep I also had never heard of Benzoin in beard care but it has some great benefits and it’s easier to provide the link as it’s quite a lot.
The base is nice, a little goes a long way and left my beard feeling softer and gave my unruly beard some hold and so kept it looking neat and tidy, well as neat and tidy as it gets.
All in all this is a nice product and when I posted a photo on Guardians of the Beard saying it had arrived, I recieved a great response of guys saying how much they love this brand.
