The ZEOS For Men Premium Beard Lover Gift Pack comprises of two beard oil, the Radiance and Inspire and a wooden beard comb.
Now if you have read or watched my reviews before, you know that I think that branding is important.
The products have to look good as whether we are aware of it or not, we also buy based on what a product looks like.
Billions are spent on product branding in order to persuade us to part with our money.
The Zeos for Men branding is…..well it is so basic and quite boring.
Then I struggled with the ingredients in the beard oils and here is why!
As you can see in the screen capture above, it is claimed that they use a ‘Blend of 8 nourishing oils to nourish & tame your beard’. Now I went over the label and could only find six oils listed plus a Vitamin E which is classed as an additive and even if you do include that for argument’s sake, that is still one short!
Just to make sure I sent the image of the back of the bottle to someone and asked them to check and they also could not see eight carrier oils listed!
Abiding by the regulations that are in place for cosmetics which beard care falls under, the products should be listed on the label in order of ratio of ingredient used. So if they’ve labelled it correctly (with the highest % ingredient going first to last) and basing an average of 2% fragrance allowed, then the Argan and Jojoba only have 2% or less in ratio. Compare that with other products using 20% and that may explain why the oil blend isn’t that great.
The carrier oils I saw on the label are Sweet Almond, Grapeseed, Castor, Evening Primrose, Argan, Jojoba and the Vitamin E Oil.
As always on day one of the test, I washed my beard and then brushed it and added some of the beard oil, I started with their Radiance beard oil. Come midday and I started to feel itchy in my beard, at first I didn’t think anything of it, but later that day it got so bad that I thought the wife would give me a flea treatment.
The next day it was driving me so mad that I washed my beard again and pulled out one of my all time favourite balms out of the drawer and it did the trick.
The scents are made up using fragrance oils and I personally don’t like them, they last but they smell like a cheap aftershave and it is a “no thank you” from me.
As I said in the YouTube review for Zeos for Men, I hate having to post a negative review, I take no pride in speaking negatively about someones creation. However I will always review honestly as I believe it is the only way to review.
