I have been sent the Golden Beards Big Sur Beard Balm for review purposes.
The Big Sur beard balm was sent as part of the Golden Beards Beard Starter Kit. (Kit review will be posted after individual reviews)
Golden Beards is a Danish brand owned and run by Oriol, he has been producing all natural beard care products since 2015.
The Big Sur balm has a base of Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Apricot Oil, Bees Wax, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil & Vitamin E and the result is a medium consistency balm with a golden yellow colour.
Whilst using the Big Sur balm along with washing my beard with the Golden Beards Shampoo & Conditioner, my beard has felt very soft, it has been looking good and has had a nice hold meaning my beard has been kept looking good for longer.
A very nice all natural balm.
The ‘Big Sur’ scent is a blend of Lavender, Patchouli & Lime essential oils.
I love all of these scents and I have grown to love Patchouli since reviewing beard care products. It is blended very well but I keep getting an antiseptic note from this blend.
This is because scent and memory are often linked, somewhere stored in this old brain is a memory linked to this scent or notes from this scent being associated with antiseptic.
I don’t deduct too many points based on scent, unless of course the scent is not blended (balanced) well or its not a good combination of scents in the blend.
The Golden Beards ‘Big Sur’ beard balm is available in 30ml for £11 & 60ml for £16 from their website.
The Beard Balms are also available as;
- Arctic – Lavander, Orange & Peppermint
