Ok guys, I was just at a local flea market and found an amazing beard oil this girl makes. She has a lot of other hand made body products too. This oil smells absolutely fantastic. All natural. 15ml for $15 dollars, so, small bottle, but IMO, worth it. Here's her site. I like to support small businesses when they make a quality product like this.

Edit: just did some math, and 15 ml is about 1/2 ounce. That means te cost is about $30 an ounce. I can get a two ounce bottle of Honest Amish oil for under $15. You would need to decide if it's worth it, but unfortunately that seems very pricey.

Professor Edward J. Fuzzworthy Gentlemen's Beard Gloss Shampoo.

After all these years of just using regular shampoo and soap on my beard I decided to get a proper one.  This arrived today from Amazon. It purports to be the best beard shampoo out there.  Its 100% natural and the ingredients are listed on the box.  Two scents are available.  The one reviewed is the regular which smells like a mix of Rosemary, Lavender and Eucalyptus.  Out of the box the scent is moderately strong.  The other scent available is Apple Cider.

The shampoo is actually like a bar of soap shaped in a 2" x 2" x 2" cube.

IMG_6689.jpg I followed the directions on the box.  The soap immediately developed a rich lather when rubbed on my beard.  Impressive amount of lather given how little I put on.

Finished off with some Honest Amish Super hold balm and a couple of drop of Amish Premium beard oil.  Brush all it.  Now set for Saturday night.

Well the product performed as advertised....good lather, only required a very small amount of product and it left my beard nice and soft.  Given that this shampoo has all natural ingredients I think it would melt away if left in the shower so I plan to keep mine in a soap dish.  All in all I am well pleased with this product.  Will follow up in a month or so to see if I am still happy.

Just bought some Beard Booze balm from their website. Ordered the Rip Van Winkle, which is supposed to be a woodsy scent. Will review it soon! Meanwhile, check out his YouTube channel. Seems like a pretty cool dude. Family owned small business. Just type Beard Booze in the search bar.

Ok, time to review a new line of products I just tried from Beard Booze. (Type Beard Booze into your search bar to get their website or their very intelligent and informative YouTube channel).

I heard about this small, husband and wife run beard business from Scuba on his Beard Tube channel so I checked them out. Randy from Beard Booze was helpful, via the comment section on his channel, in guiding me which balm to choose from a pretty extensive choice list of various scents. I like woodsy so he suggested the Rip Van Winkle. I checked out their site, and read the ingredients list and was pleased to discover they are indeed all natural with no weird crap I can't pronounce. I ordered the balm and payed with PayPal, which I liked cuz I hate giving my CC# over the internet. Received the package via USPS in 2 1/2 days from order! Impressive. Not only did I get the 2oz balm, Randy and Heather sent me a dram of a sample oil and a cool sticker, plus a handwritten thank you for my order.

Product details:
The balm ingredients: Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sweet almond oil, Jojoba oil, Tea tree oil, and essential oils cederwood, pine, fir needle, and tea tree.

Oil ingredients: Sweet Almond, Jojoba, essential oils sandlewwod, bergamot, grapefruit, orange.

So how do they work? Ive been using the balm for four days now. It is a firm balm in the can and has a great scent. It melted quickly in my hands, and was slightly oily but since it does contain several oils that was expected. It went into my beard nicely and wasn't heavy or oily once it absorbed into the hairs. I would agree with their desciption that the hold is medium. I noticed it does not tame my waves quite like the Honest Amish Heavy Duty Balm, but on days when I want to ride more waves it is perfect. Straighter beards will love it.

The oil is great and I will no doubt order a few of them in the future. The Castaway scent sample sent me has a hint of citrus.

Price: $13.99 for a 2 oz tin of balm
The oil comes in 1oz dropper bottles and sells for around $11.99.
Very fair IMO!

Overall I love this company. I will be buying more of it and probably a tshirt too. I'm all for supporting small business, and Beard Booze is the definition of small business headed for success. Check them out on YouTube and their well done web site.

They are. This morning I ordered a t-shirt and some beard oil and within two hours I got an email that my order was shipped! I'll probably have it in two days.

  • Hello everyone. I'm not the best at reviewing products though I will try to be as informative as possible about this particular balm/oil. This is from a small batch company, based out of California, called Luxurious Bastard beard care products. Single owner operated and hand made. I have found that particular companies like this, take better care to provide a quality product. Rather than a big company, making oils/balms, to be mass produced. That can be up for debate but it seems to hold true to me. I had heard about this company while watching a few product reviews and figured i would give it a shot. Definitely was not disappointed. Conditions your beard very well. Leaving it very soft and manageable. The oil is relatively thick in consistency and the balm is pretty thick, as well. I was especially intrigued by this scent in particular. The 1912 Bastard: Travel back in time to the year 1912, and place yourself right in the middle of an old rustic general store. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and enjoy everything from the fresh cedar wood floors under your feet, to the bags of fresh coffee on the shelves. You can almost touch the rich leather products and the hemp filled sacks of sweet tobacco in the room. This one will make you feel like a true bastard from the 1900’s. Or you'll smell like you live in an antique store. This is one of the best beard oil/balm scents i have ever smelled. For me, the leather and cedar wood are most prominent. So, if you are looking for a natural and unique product, check this guys stuff out. I'm definitely going to. Both the balm and oil go for $15, so it is reasonably priced, as well.

With Luxurious Bastard, there is not a fragrance free oil that is made but there is a customize option. To where you can have a beard oil, made to your specifications, regarding scent, i think. You can contact the man that operates Luxurious Bastard and see if something can be done for you.
