Review: Mr Masey’s ‘Mandarin & Sweet Orange’ Brilliant Beard Oil

2 min read

I have seen the Mr Masey’s brand on Instagram but until now I hadn’t had the chance to test any of their products, that was until Roni sent me a bottle of the Mr Masey’s ‘Mandarin & Sweet Orange’ Brilliant Beard Oil.

Now as the saying goes, this was a game of two halves!

The scent is incredible, Sweet Orange is very nice but Mandarin is just incredible and the blend of the two together is just perfect! The strength of the essential oils is also perfect, a real burst of citrus freshness that left my beard smelling bloody amazing.

The base for this blend is Grapeseed & Vitamin E carrier oils and initially my beard felt soft and I was thinking that this Beard oil was so good that it could be worthy of the Golden Beard Award. However a couple of hours later my beard felt very dry and my heart sank!

This is obviously because of the basic base oil blend and what a shame. If this had the addition of one or two more well chosen carrier oils, it could be amazing but alas it was not meant to be.

  1. Hello

    Just to say that grapeseed carrier oil is one of only two oils that is easily absorbed by the hair shaft. The other is macadamia nut which we don’t use as too many people have nut allergies.

    We decided to avoid all the other carrier oils because they tend to sit on the hair shaft which makes for an oily beard. We use heaps of natural vitamin E oil even though this is very expensive, because it’s great for the skin beneath the beard.

    We’ve never had any feedback that our oils make for a dry beard. Our best guess is that the beard hair absorbed the oil like it should and maybe more oil was needed if you wanted a more oily beard?

    All the best

    1. I use the same amount of oil on my beard with every oil, that way you get a feel of how each product makes the beard feel. Roni who sent me the oil reported that his beard felt dry after a few hours.
      Of course different hair types react differently to the products and I can only review on how it was with my beard.
      The scent is incredible and for me perfect.
