Review: The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Racketeer’ Beard Oil

3 min read

The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Racketeer’ Beard Oil has only gone and changed my mind about Clove oil.

I hate Clove, it is the one essential oil that will make me dislike a beard care product instantly and the reason that I am not fond of the pirate named oils. West Indies bay used in those products has Clove notes and so it’s always a no from me.

The Racketeer is a Sweet orange, Wild honey, Clove & Cinnamon scented oil and I instantly caught the clove and hastily I admit, I thought I wouldn’t like it. It was very hasty because the Clove works very well in this blend, in fact I will go as far as to say I think I really like the Clove oil in this beard oil.

I have never attempted to blend essential oils, however from testing over 200 products I realise that it is the part that requires the most skill. Certain brands are known for their perfect blending and it is easily messed up creating a confused scent or a scent where one or two oils are wiping out the rest.

The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Racketeer’ Beard Oil has a beautiful sweet honey scent with a citrus aroma and the warmth and spicy notes finish it of perfectly and it wouldn’t be the same without that Clove.

I’m a Clove convert!

This blend is in a base of Premium Pressed Argan Oil, Golden Jojoba Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E. It is a clear and has a medium consistency and this worked into my beard very easily and left it feeling softer and looking good. These oils will also help to prevent beard itch, dry skin and will help to grow a thicker and stronger beard.
I previously tested The Bearded Rapscallion ‘The Jolly Rascal‘ Beard Balm and again it was a good product, this is a brand with a good range of scents and products you won’t be disappointed with.
They also sell Tattoo and Lobe balms!
