Review: The Old Norse ‘Hunters’ Beard Balm

3 min read

After using the amazing ‘Merchants Origin‘ balm, I was sure that moving on would be disappointing as the scent was so amazing but The Old Norse ‘Hunters’ Beard Balm is again incredible!

Hunters is a Bergamot, Sage & Cedarwood scented balm, again the scent has been blended perfectly. The fresh and zesty Bergamot is followed up by the aromatic & herby Sage and then the woodsy and fresh Cedarwood. One thing is for sure, this scent blend works very well and the result is amazing.

The balm itself is made up from Unrefined Organic Shea Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Apricot Oil, Avocado Oil and Vit E. The yellow coloured balm has a medium almost into firm consistency but is easy to scoop from the container. A small amount leaves your beard feeling softer, it gives a slight hold and doesn’t leave the beard hair feeling greasy or sticky.

The Old Norse is a popular brand and I understand why, the scents are blended well and are well thought out not following the general norms that are found in most beard care ranges. The balm is high quality and won’t leave anyone disappointed with their purchase.

The 60g balm comes in a screw top container with the new coloured Old Norse branding which look good and is available for £11.99 from the website.

The balms are also available as

  • Merchants Origin – Lime, Mandarin & Frankincense
  • Glacial Fjord – Grapefruit & Sandalwood
  • Winter Nights – Peppermint, Ylang Ylang & Juniper Berry
  • Norwegian Fir – Lemon, Fir Needle & Lavender
  • Baltic Breeze – Unscented
  • Dawn – Orange, Ylang Ylang & Cinnamon

The next step was discovering the science of essential oils. The benefits of these oils are astounding. With constant use they can benefit your beard no end.

Who better to style my product mixtures on than the creators of all that is manly. The Old Norse. Having a beard in Scandinavia is pretty much mandatory. When surviving out in the harsh cold and wild you must know how to look after your skin, to keep it hydrated and rich with nutrients. Its from these group of countries that i have designed our products scents around. To match the ruggedness but beautiful scenery and smells that you can experience whilst there. As much as Men like to strive for masulinity we can’t help but still enjoy the better smells in life.

We want to create a following, a clan of avid Beard growers to support our handmade Balm and Oils movement. A revolution in the beard community. This is why #Raidwithus is our Twitter slogan. We want you to join our clan and help The Old Norse reach out to as many Bearded Norsemen as possible to ensure their Beards are just as well treated as ours.
