I have been wanting to try some products from this brand for quite a while, luckily Roni Simmons who is one of my admins on Guardians of the Beard sent me some oils to try and one of them was Bobo’s ‘Peppermint & Patchouli’ Beard Oil.
The oil is in a 50ml glass bottle with screw lid and an open neck and I really like the Bobo’s branding.
The base for this oil is a blend of Grapeseed, Coconut and Argan carrier oils and it is a good one, I was amazed at how much softer this beard oil made my wirey beard feel. Certainly the carrier oils used seem to be of a high quality.
The scent is made up from Peppermint and Patchouli essential oils and the scent is as you would expect very fresh and floral with the Peppermint being stronger than the Patchouli.
Roni is always spot on with product observations and he said that he liked the scent but after a while the peppermint wore off and left you with the Patchouli which he wasn’t so keen on and he is right, the Peppermint fades and the patchouli then takes the lead. However I personally prefer it when the peppermint does lose its intensity and the oil becomes more floral.
I prefer a balm to an oil, it keeps my unruly beard in check but I quite like this oil, it left my beard feeling softer, looking good and the scent is quite nice.
The carrier oils used are a good choice, as well as being great for your beard, these oils are just as important for the skin under the beard. Grapeseed oil is absorbed very quickly and does not leave a greasy feeling, it is anti-inflammatory and helps reduce acne. Coconut oil helps the skin naturally control its natural oil secretions and Argan oil has been proven to reduce sebum levels in individuals with oily skin and thus helps prevent Acne and also is a great skin moisturiser.
The 50ml bottle of Review: Bobo’s ‘Peppermint & Patchouli’ Beard Oil costs 17.99 from the website

Bobo’s Beard Company has been made by the beard for the beard, in a small town in Norfolk. Created with 100% natural ingredients for any size beard or moustache, Bobo’s will be your one stop shop for all male grooming products.
We were fed up with buying over priced beard products with second-rate ingredients, so our idea was to blend our own oils and waxes, and so it begun! After much researching and testing it was decided that Moroccan Argan Oil would form the base of our beard oils due to it’s softening and repairing effects, being 100% natural and containing high concentrates of fatty acids and vitamin e the results were just outstanding. Although Argan oil was not the cheapest product on the market our ethos was to provide a good quality product at an affordable price and that’s what we hope we have achieve!
