It is no secret that I love a sweet citrus scent and Selenite is citrus, but with a twist!

Like all of the Savage Alchemy balms the Selenite beard balm has a firm consistency and you will need to use something like a plectrum to scrape some out of the screw top tin.

It is a base blend of Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Hemp seed oil, Jojoba oil, Argan oil & Sweet Almond oil.

The blend is perfectly smooth without a hint of any grainyness and the firm balm doesn’t take long to be worked in the hand ready to apply.

I have been happy with the results, it is a nice balm and left my beard feeling softer, it gave a nice hold and so my beard was kept looking good.

The scent

The scent blend is Sweet Orange, Star Anise & Nutmeg and it works, in fact it’s very nice indeed.

It is of course a citrus scent and the Sweet Orange is what you first get and that is then backed up with the spicy Star Anise and the warmth of the Nutmeg.

If I was looking to buy and had just read the ingredients in the scent without trying, I think it would have been one that I would have likely passed by.

I am not keen on the Star Anise scent that resembles Fennel and Liquorice but it really works well with the sweetness of the orange.
