An Oil Your Beard Can Trust

Unless you’ve been asleep or worse yet, living under a rock for the past two years, you’ll have come across, heard of, or even bought beard oil. It’s inescapable in this present day. From the high street to pretty much any eCommerce website out there, beard oil has certainly taken the world by storm, and so far has shown no signs of slowing down.

Today we wanted to take an in depth look as to why its so popular and effective, and why there is a need for it in the first place.

Bringing things back to basis, the only real reason why beard oil is so incredibly popular at the moment is because beards are too. But what has caused this rapid rise in beard and even stubble growth amongst most men under the age of 40?

Applying oil to beard

Some people answer by saying that it is cyclical. They argue that throughout recent history there have been peaks and troughs when it comes to beard growth amongst the populous. They argue that roughly once every few decades, there is a sustained period of time (usually 2-3 years) where beards suddenly become more fashionable than usual and it become more socially acceptable for men to grow out their beards a bit.

The only trouble with this theory is it isn’t exactly accurate when it comes to this recent spate of beard mania. This time round many more men seem to be growing their facial hair than usual. On top of that this period seems to have gone on longer than the normal 2-3 years, as it is now approaching it’s fifth year.

All of these reasons mean that this spate might just be different. It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that this time beards are here to stay. The recent uprise in beard related products and gifts only helps confirm this suspicion, beard oil being the main product it seems.

We happened to try some of it out ourselves and quickly realised it is actually quite a handy accessory to have if you are currently sporting a beard. You can find our favourite brand by clicking on the link above.

Moustache Wax Saves The Day

Howdy folks. Lo and behold I have another product review for you. I know I’m not exactly doing these by request just yet, so I apologise in advance if you find this boring. I’ve got a feeling at least half of you will, but the other half will most definitely it hugely interesting – Swings and roundabouts!

Since you haven’t seen my picture, what many of you might not know about me is that I have a quickly growing moustache that’s taken refuge on my face for about 3 months now. I don’t know what strange impulse came over me the day I decided to grow one. Perhaps it was the annoyance of having to shave every other day. Part of me feels that it was something I had to do as I hadn’t yet had one in my entire life.

Now I have it, I quite like it, and intend to keep it for a reasonably long time. But having a moustache isn’t all fun and games; with it comes responsibility, crippling responsibility. I have to take care of it now and keep an eye out for it. Without my careful attention, at any minute it could disfigure itself and ultimately embarrass me. Keeping it in shape takes time and effort, and most importantly product.

Moustache Wax

The time finally came for me to buy some wax last month, when I had a particularly bad day in the moustache department. I had a fairly important meeting at work, but completely forgot to take a quick glimpse in the mirror before I entered the boardroom. Once it was over, to my horror, I realised that the tash itself was a complete mess and I’m sure had at least a small effect on the way the meeting went.

My only option was to buy this moustache wax. I spent a good deal of time trying to find one online that could be shipped to my house in as little as a few days, and this one fit the bill.
I really have no qualms with it. It literally does exactly what is says on the tin. It keeps my moustache perfectly. Another plus side is that I’ve been using it most days for about a month now, and I’ve still got the vast majority of the wax left. This definitely gets two thumbs up from me.

My Lemon Oil Experience

I know I’ve already bigged myself up quite a bit, so now is the time to really prove myself and really show you how great I am at blogging. So, what am I going to blog about? That is the question.

I want to kick things off with a product review. This is something I do from time to time, and I genuinely take pleasure in helping people decide to buy, or in fact informing them of when they need to keep a clear distance from a suspect product.

I’m a big fan of essential oils. I have something called an oil diffuser. Some people also call this disperser or dispensers, but essentially the premise is you place an essential oil within it, and over the course of the day, or periodically (it has settings you can adjust) it will spray out a small amount of the oil, leaving a lovely fragrant smell in whichever room you have it.

Personally some of my favourite scents are eucalyptus and peppermint, but my friend Sarah recently told me about lemon oil. I was already shocked at myself for not trying it earlier, but she told it was her favourite oil by far. I was also interested to learn that it, allegedly, has many other uses too.

It can be used as a disinfectant. I think all of the disinfectants I’ve ever used definitely do not have a nice smell, so I knew it would be interesting to try it in this way. That’s not the end of it though; I’ve heard it’s pretty good at removing stains and marks especially from kitchen surfaces and things like cooking hobs. Just when I thought it surely couldn’t do anymore, Sarah told me it’s also good for your skin too.

I was beginning to think ‘Is there anything it can’t do?’ That was all I needed to hear. I was completely sold. I had to give this lemon oil a try. The only question was what was I going to use it for. I could potentially use it for all of the things I just described. I planned to use it for aromatherapy, as a disinfectant, for cleaning surfaces and on my skin. After I’d done this I’d decide where it had done the best job, and then only use it for that moving forward.

There’s no doubt about it, it left a very nice smell in my living room after dispensing it through my diffuser for a day. But I still wasn’t convinced that it was better than my favourite, the eucalyptus oil. My wife and I tried it on our ageing skin and after a few days I’d noticed that my skin was noticeably softer.

However, my favourite use for it was as a disinfectant. I just loved the smell it would leave after wiping down the surfaces and table in my kitchen. We have now decided that is what we are going to use it for on a long-term basis.

Do I need to tell you anymore? This stuff is awesome and considering the price, and how long it lasts, you really cannot go wrong.
