Prism by Beard Lab & Bristlr – Our new Beard Oil!

Prism is the new beard oil scent currently in development by Beard Lab, with a helping hand from Bristlr. Trust us, you need it in your life!

Beard Lab fans will remember their Jellybean Beard Oil, which sadly disappeared. However we love the scent so much that we’ve helped bring it back, with a re-brand!

Arriving soon in Beard Lab’s shop, Prism is a must have for beard owners looking for something a little sweeter. Smell the rainbow all day long with its colourful, fruity scent.

Beard Lab's Prism with Bristlr
Prism, a collaborative effort between Bristlr and Beard Lab, will be coming soon! So your beard can smell like rainbows too!

So, why have we brought back Jellybean? The simple answer is that Jellybean was our favourite beard oil scent, and we were heartbroken to see it go. We brought it back so that everyone can enjoy the magical scent once again!

We also wanted to give something back to the beard community, something unique. You’ll find plenty of beard oils out there inspired by woody, musky, masculine scents. How many beard oils smell like sweets and rainbows? Just Prism!

We want to see our beard owning folk taking good care of their beards. To do that you’ll need a quality beard oil. What better way to ensure quality than to work with a brand, like Beard Lab, that delivers products we know we love?

Prism was originally inspired by our Rainbow Feature, so it nicely ties in to the Bristlr brand. We’d also hoped to release this rainbow inspired beard oil in time for Pride Season, but unfortunately these things take time. You can’t cut corners when it comes to achieving a quality product after all! However, we want our LGBT fans to know that Prism and the rainbow motif was inspired by your diverse community!

Beard Lab have almost finished preparations and Prism will soon be available to buy. Until then go and pre-order your own bottle

#SuccessStory – Rae & Aidy

Rae and Aidy

Another success here at Bristlr!

This week Rae got in touch to tell us she’s met the beard for her on Bristlr. The beard in question belongs to Aidy from Sheffield, and what a lovely beard he has! Take a look for yourselves.
We asked Rae for her story, how Bristlr brought her and Aidy together and where things are going from here.

I first saw Bristlr on Dragons Den and joined straight away but there was no one in my area.

Fast forward to April 2017 and I opened my distance search and found Aidy in Sheffield, 60+ miles away. His quirkiness and passion for photography were a hit for me and we began to chat via text and swapped Instagram account details to admire each other’s work.

We met in person on June 3rd in Sheffield. Both extremely nervous but had a fabulous day sharing our love of art, museums and the outdoors. We are now stronger than ever and have future plans.

‘Future plans’ sounds a bit mysterious, but that’s the way we like it here at Bristlr! The possibilities are endless, just like the beards!

We wish Rae and Aidy nothing but happiness and beard fondling in those future plans. We’re glad to hear you both found each other and share so many passions (but mostly, we’re delighted you share a passion for beards).
