Dead Rugged Beard Care ‘City Slicker’ Beard Oil has only reinforced my views on the brand and it is one to add to your list of ‘Must Try’ if you haven’t already!
I am going to start with the base, it is a blend of Hemp seed, Jojoba, Apricot kernel, Grapeseed, Hazelnut and natural vitamin E carrier oils, this is the same blend they use throughout the beard oil range and it is very good. The oil has left this old boy’s wirey beard soft, very soft and that is something!
The oil absorbs easily into the beard and leaves it looking good as well as feeling good, this is how a beard oil should be, a well researched set of carrier oils that have been blended to give this amazing result.
The scent is quite unique, a blend of Grapefruit, Rosewood, Spearmint and an oil called Neroli. The Spearmint creates a freshness and reminds me of the Wrigley’s chewing gums, the Rosewood then adds a softness. Neroli is one I have never heard of and it is distilled from the blossom of sweet orange, this along with the grapefruit adds a very very slight citrus back note.
