Review of Beardster Old Love Beard Oil.

Beardster is a brand that I haven’t reviewed before, earlier this year they did an about turn and stopped selling their original oils and balms and relaunched with some new oils and the balms will follow soon.

If you haven’t read my reviews before, I must explain that my humour is, lets say different. Why do I explain, well it is because when I saw the name of this scent ‘Old Love’ I thought of a disused tissue in the foot well of my old VW Scirocco. I did warn you!

But of course it is nothing like that thankfully and is in fact a blend of Sandalwood and Benzoin. This has created a warm and rich with a sweetness backing that up and it works very well. The scent is neither too weak nor too punchy and has been blended to the right strength in my opinion.

The base for this scent is a blend of Jojoba, Argan, Sweet Almond, Castor & Vitamin E carrier oils and this has created a slightly thicker consistency. The Beardster Old Love Beard Oil comes with a pump dispenser and a couple of squirts was enough for my beard and was quickly absorbed.

My wirey old beard was left feeling softer and I am always keen on a thicker consistency beard oil as it helps with my wirey unruly beard hair.

So unlike many of my Old Love’s this is definitely one that doesn’t make me cringe!


The Beardster Old Love Beard Oil comes in a 10ml bottle with the pump applicator and costs £8 from the website.

Our Story Starts here

 It is 2014 and I, Daniel, had been exploring growing a beard for a while. I had kept the beard short, trimmed and sharp. A style that is minimalist and one that I still love. The problem I had was itch. My face was itching all over and my skin was flaking and falling off. It looked gross and felt horrible. 
So I looked for some products and came across Argan oil and Coconut Oil. At this point I just chucked these on my face and they did a good job.
I looked for some curated products but all I found was heavily perfumed scents that irritated my face. So I began making my own products. 
Beardster as a community started in May 2017 when we started our Instagram page, documenting a new beard Journey and featuring fellow Beardsters to showcase their efforts.
In November 2017 we launched our YouTube channel and post weekly tips and lifestyle videos to help you improve.
In February 2018 we launched our handmade premium Beard Oils. We have a lot more we are going to be doing though.
We had been asked about supplying the products I was using on a daily basis whilst documenting my beard growth. So it made sense to provide these to you at the lowest cost possible whilst retaining ethically sourced ingredients of the highest quality.

Our Vision

We know there are plenty of Beard Care companies out there selling their handmade products or mass produced products. Kudos to them. We want to do things differently though. We want to be the Beard Care media company that provides you with the very best information and lifestyle tips each week.
We also want to continually innovate on products. So going forward, we will document all our ingredients, we will inform you why they are used, where the ingredients are sourced from and we will continuously innovate our products.
We look at the Female Beauty Industry for a lot of inspiration. We love how those products can make a person feel so much better about themselves. We are going to do this for you.
