The Ernest Thomas & Co Beard Balm has been branded like all of the brands products as if you found it in your granddad’s belongings, as if it was a product from the 1940’s. I think it works well and looks great!

An all natural base of Sweet Almond oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Coconut oil and Argan oil has created a medium consistency balm that is easy to scoop from the tin and is easy to work into the beard hair and down onto the skin underneath.

It is important that when applying a balm and also an oil, that you work it right in and make sure that you get it down onto the skin under the beard. That is because these products are as beneficial to your skin as the beard hair and it will help to keep your skin moisturised and keep the itch at bay.

The Ernest Thomas & Co Beard Balm has left my beard feeling softer and given it a nice hold which I like and why I do tend to prefer a balm to an oil.

The scent is made up from essential oils but they have also used some fragrance oil in there as well. Ernest Thomas & Co describe it as light bergamot and mandarin top notes immersed with a floral bouquet of jasmine, violet and lily. However I keep getting the slight scent of tobacco, not the dry stuff in cigarettes but like an old pipe tobacco.

All in all I really like this balm, they have produced a very nice product.

The Ernest Thomas & Co Beard Balm is available in 30ml – £11.95 and 60ml – £16.95 from the website.

The Ernest Thomas & Co Story

This is Ernest. He was a hero, he was our hero. Born in 1900 in Henley-on-Thames.

He worked as a groundsman, a driver and looked after the horses for the local landowner before joining up and fighting in WW1 where he was severely wounded but thankfully survived. He lived until he was 89 years of age.

…was honourable​

…was chivalrous

…was an inspiring and loving grandad

…was a real gentleman

…had an immaculate sense of dress even when he was in his beloved vegetable patch
