A cure to beardruff. A godsend. This little pot of wonders is meant to heal the sore, dry, flaky skin beneath the beard and keep it well hydrated. Let’s see how it does!
Bit hard to photograph a round object so I’m basically gonna copy what it says on the packaging.
Intensive Beard Treatment
For the healing of sore, dry, flaky skin and problem beards.
Directions: Wash beard with natural soap, apply treatment to problem area, leave overnight, wash upon waking and apply beard oil as usual.
Hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) distillate, argania spinosa kernel (argan) oil, vitus vinifera (grape) seed oil, olea europaea (olive) oil, fruit oil, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, cocos nucifera (coconut) oil (refined), beeswax, cymbopogon martinii oil, laurus nobilis (bay laurel) leaf extract, phenoxyethanol and caprylyl glycol (<1%).
There we go! So looking at the ingredients, you’ll see a lot of familiar ingredients. A lot are used in body moisturisers (like the cocoa and coconut) so that’s probably where the hydrating properties come from.
A lot of natural ingredients too. Well. Phenoxyethanol is basically a cosmetic preservative. Caprylyl glycol is an alcohol derived from caprylic acid—a natural fatty acid found in the milk of some mammals.
The consistency is like a watery balm. It’s easy to apply and doesn’t leave any shit. To be fair, it’s meant to be washed out so a bit of a ‘clegnut’ is not disastrous. What I do is wash my beard with a shampoo, towel dry it and then rub some of the treatment in.
To conclude, I’ll be using this once a week to refresh my beard and get rid of all the shitty skin beneath. It works wonders for a well conditioned beard.
Coming up, I’ll be reviewing their beard oils. I’m a bit bunged up at the moment and I can’t smell anything so it’s not a good time!
