Yes yes! Thought I’d go back to my old ways and get myself a Bedfordshire Beard Co. beard oil. I remember using these oils when I first grew a beard and it was my first proper beard oil (I used to use Argan Oil). They’re a local company who produce some splendid products.
Bedfordshire Beard Co. Mango Beard Oil
I bought this fruity little number from a local shop for the nice round price of 10 English sterling (£10 for you dummies). It’s 30ml and it’s a glass bottle with a glass pipette. Oh and if you didn’t know, beard oils make an excellent shaving oil, and this is no exception! Have a weekend away? Pack this and leave your shaving “lube” at home!
Established in 2014, Bedfordshire Beard Co. are actually quite old for a beard company! They been around for a while whilst there are still new companies popping up.
The main ingredients are almond oil, grapeseed oil, hemp oil, apricot kernel oil and jojoba oil. It’s missing the key argan oil but for this price, you’ll be asking too much! It has jojoba which is great for skin and hair.
‘Not for internal use’ ie don’t put it up your butt.
You know when you cut open a nice fresh mango and you get that amazing sweet smell? Bedfordshire Beard Co. have managed to put that exact scent in a beard oil! It’s sweet, it’s fruity, and it lasts a good amount of time! I oiled my beard this morning at 8am and here I am now almost 12 hours later and it’s still smelling sweet!
Overall, it’s a fantastic beard oil for the price. At £10 a bottle, it puts it in between cheaper budget oils and more expensive beard oils that will probably contain argan oil.
Bedfordshire Beard Co. The Tobacconist Beard Balm
I recently reviewed some pomades and bought a Bedfordshire Beard Co. deluxe pomade and they chucked in a mini beard balm with the order. How kind of them!
It’s diddy! Only 15ml! Perfect little sample size. The tobacconist doesn’t smell like cigarettes! (Thank God). It’s more of a pure tobacco mixed with vanilla and black pepper. It’s a very manly man scent. Perfect for them days when you’re not feeling sweet.
For longer beards, it works brilliantly to keep your beard tame and in shape. When I use oils, I put a bit of hair product on the side of my beard to keep them curls tame. You won’t need to do that when you use a balm.
The key ingredients are shea butter, bees wax, almond oil, grapeseed oil, hemp oil, apricot kernel oil, jojoba oil, tobacco oil and black pepper oil.
Personally speaking, I go through phases of using balms and oils and at the moment, I’m digging oils. I’ll keep this for when I’m digging balms again. Fortunately, they do all their scents in both balms and oils. Perfect!
Overall, a brilliant company with an excellent range of top quality, hand made products. It always feels good supporting a local company too!
