Having previously tested their Bold & Crisp Beard oil I have now tested the Merry Band Beard Oil ‘Zingy lime’ oil.
It may seem that I am awarding the Gold Beard Award too often, I agree that I have recently had cause to award it a few times. The Gold Cup Award is given when the product is, well perfect! Obviously some of this is my personal opinion with the scents but it’s about the whole package. The Scent is only part of it, it is also about the base oil or balm, wax etc. and even the branding. So if a product meets those standards, it gets the Gold Cup Award.
I already knew the oil base was going to be good and so it was really just the scent, it’s a blend of Lime, Cedarwood, Clary Sage, Rosemary and Lavender essential oils, the result is a citrus fresh floral and slightly woodsy scent that is warm and is blended so well.
The base for this scent is Moroccan Argan Oil, Grapeseed Oil & Natural Vitamin E and the base is a clear and light oil which leaves your beard feeling softer and looking good. I really like these oils and I know that many guys agree and I have my daughters boyfriend hovering and desperately trying to grab the bottle once I have tested it.
The branding of Merry Band Beard Oils is also very good, the artwork is drawn by the brand owner Tom and the labels are clean and easy to read.
The Merry Band Beard Oil ‘Zingy Lime’ Beard Oil comes in two sizes, a 10ml for £6.49 and a 30ml for £12.99 from their Etsy shop
