I have been sent the Mariner Jack The Captains Charge beard balm for review purposes!


There are certain brands that make me go “Ooooo” when the postman delivers and Mariner Jack is definitely one of them!

The Admirals Blend is one of the newer scents from the Mariner Jack brand and I have watched the posts from guys and they have been received well.

So here we have the usual Mariner Jack Balm blend of ;

  • Shea Butter
  • Beeswax
  • Argan Oil
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Jojoba Seed Oil

And it is a creamy smooth balm with a medium consistency and it is easy to scoop from the tin and worked into my beard quickly.

It didn’t leave my beard feeling greasy and you need a small amount to get the results of a softer beard that is kept neater than it would with an oil because of the butter and wax.

Now the scent, it is a blend of;

  • Rich Coffee
  • Walnut
  • Cocoa

And it wasn’t what I thought it would be!

Owner and Creator of Mariner Jack Dave Green was a Barista, in fact I think he was actually a lot more than that, a coffee expert and so I imagined this to be more Coffee than it is, I thought we may have had a freshly roasted coffee scent?

But what it is, is a subtle blend and a blend where the coffee doesn’t steal the show and as some of the guys on Guardians of the Beard group said, it is akin to a Coffee and Walnut cake.

And it is very nicely done!
