Review: Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner
*Disclosure* I was sent this product for review purposes. All opinions are that of my husband's and he is definitely an honest person!
Hey guys! Today I have a different kind of review, and it's the Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner. Now, I obviously don't have a beard (that would be kinda scary!), but my loving husband has one. I have to say also, we got married in September 2013 and since then, he has trimmed and shaped up his beard maybe 3 times. I love him dearly, but that thing can get so unruly and scratchy. He also complains of his skin being itchy and he'll scratch at it til it hurts and is raw. This product came at the perfect time!
Here is a description of the product, taken from Amazon:
Unconditioned Beards can be hard and brittle. Made with Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Beeswax and Pure Essential Oil, our Beard Conditioner will help keep your beard moisturized and healthy as it grows.
Get rid of your weak brittle beard with Smooth Viking's Beard Conditioner, designed to not only provide hold, but also strengthen from root to tip. We made sure to formulate Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner with 100% Natural ingredients to ensure optimal beard health, growth, and care. Tired of having an itchy beard? Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner nourishes the skin and helps to stop itching associated with beard growth, our conditioner will help repair dry hair and help with new beard growth. Smooth Viking beard Conditioner is easy to use and doesn't create a mess, all it takes is a small amount of conditioning balm which can easily be rubbed between your fingers and spread into your beard.
The directions on how to use this product is shown above, and the ingredients are on the front of this tin. It says to take a pea sized amount to rub into the beard and use more from there if needed. My husband definitely needs more than a pea sized amount. Once he rubs it between his fingers, he just massages it into his beard for a good 30 seconds. Then he takes his hair brush (yes, he has to brush his beard all the time!) and brushes it through evenly.
The product looks and feels waxy in the jar and when you rub it between your fingers, it feels very smooth. The scent is also pleasant, very clean and masculine. We were also very kindly sent their Beard Balm and their Beard Oil. The balm kind of reminds me of the conditioner but to me it doesn't feel as nice. Now the oil is amazing! My husband absolutely loves that stuff in conjunction with the conditioner. He will just use a few drops of that, rub it into his beard, then use the conditioner afterwards. When he keeps up the routine of caring for his beard, it definitely looks and feels better. He also hasn't complained much of his dry skin either, so that's a plus!
Here is one of my favorite pictures from our wedding. I love how his beard is here because it's just alot neater and way easier for him to maintain. He's quite attached to his beard so I won't force him to chop it off, but I do have him look at the wedding pictures and remind him how much easier his beard was to maintain. Oh well, I guess I'm stuck with a mountain man ;)
If it were my husband writing this review, all he would say is he liked it and give no other details. I tried getting details from him, but he's stubborn. All I can say is I for sure notice a difference in the look and feel of his beard, and his skin underneath looks alot better as well. On Amazon the Conditioner costs $16.95, the Balm costs $15.95, and the Oil costs $16.95. If you have a boyfriend/husband that's got a beard that needs a little TLC, I honestly do recommend these products, especially the Conditioner and Oil. They really have made a world of difference for him.
Would you get something like this for your boyfriend/husband? What do you think of this product?
