I last reviewed a Manmane beard balm in December 2017 and so I was pleased to once again review for them.

Manmane is based in Swansea, Wales and is owned by Michael Thompson and has been in business since November 2015.

The balm is a blend of

  • Castor oil
  • Jojoba Wax
  • Shea Butter
  • Argan oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Carnauba wax
  • Vitamin E

The result is a soft to medium consistency beard balm and the only hint of this balm containing plant based waxes and not beeswax is when you give it a quick work in your hands before applying.

You get an almost soap like and white texture, but that is the only way that I can differentiate this plant based balm to other balms that use beeswax!

In fact I have had some good beard days whilst using The Beacons balm from Manmane, my beard has felt good and looked good as well.

The scent

  • Lavender True
  • Cedarwood
  • Scotch Pine
  • Tea Tree
  • Vetiver

The scent is Woodsy first with the Lavender and then the Tea Tree coming in after that.

Although this scent isn’t for me, it has been blended very well and I can appreciate that. The scents work together rather than one particular scent drowing the others out.

So far the Jardin Du Monde scent from Manmane has been the star of the show and whilst I have only tried that scent in a beard oil, I know that in a balm it would be amazing!!!
