I received a pot of Superfurry ‘Mike’s Pine’ Beard Polisher and probably like you are now, I thought “a what?”
This is what I love about testing and reviewing products, all too often the products are very much the same but there are some products out there that are unique.
I opened up the whopping 175ml glass pot and I have to hold my hands up and admit, I was sceptical!
The contents looked how I can only describe as almost like petroleum jelly and I was even more worried. However the ‘Beard Polisher’ is made up using only natural ingredients and there is certainly no petroleum jelly in the mix.
So after a beard wash using the Superfurry Beer beard Wash, I took a small amount of the Superfurry ‘Mike’s Pine’ Beard Polisher, worked it in my hands and gently started working it into my beard hair and WOW!
It was absorbed into my beard very easily and left it feeling softer, it created a nice healthy sheen. It provided a nice hold keeping my unruly beard looking really good. I have to say that this product is one that you have to try, seriously it’s so good.
The Superfurry ‘Mike’s Pine’ Beard Polisher is made up from Beeswax, Shea butter, Coconut oil, Safflower oil, Sweet Almond oil and Castor oil.
I guess if I had to describe it, I would say it sits between an oil and a balm.
Now the scent is not what I would choose, it’s a scent created from a blend of Pine, Cedar Virginia and Vetiver essential oils and it is very woody but I don’t dislike it and I am not usually keen on the very woody scents.
This is what Superfurry say about the scent:
Starting with smokey earthy grounded Vetiver, a mythical component. Taking over by Cedar, the noble wooden note, just like a fresh chopped Pine tree. Topping off with a generous dash of opulent pine. This fragrance is like a walk trough a forest with fresh chopped pine trees, with half pulled out roots of the ground. A masculine and butch without any compromise.
I have started using the The 40 Crooks Of Ali Baba Beard Polisher today. I can tell you already that the scent coupled with this amazing product will get it the ‘Golden Beard Award’.
