My Beard Smells Like Jelly Beans

This isn’t a sponsored post. Though it should be for all the praise I’ll be writing.

I should mention that Beard Lab (the makers of the beard oil I’m talking about in this post) do advertise on Bristlr. That’s actually how I first heard of their products. One of my jobs here at BristlrHQ is to manually approve each and every ad which runs on the desktop version of Bristlr. Whilst doing this a few weeks ago I found myself with the biggest smile in the world whilst approving an advert titled “Jelly Bean beard oil!”.

Oh yes.

I ordered a bottle out of pure instinct. You can too, here, if you’re feeling the urge. And I am happy to report it’s every bit as good as you’re dreaming it is.

I use beard oil right after a nice hot shower and a towel dry. Three or four drops is plenty.

This oil smells so good.

There’s an initial strong and sweet smell of fruity sugar, which makes way to more of a fresh floral scent. It’s an interesting transition, and it works really well preventing the sweetness from being too overwhelming. The scent settles into a very sweet and light citrusy flavour which lasts at least all day.

I’ve found with a lot of the more floral oils, there’s a tendency for them to smell stale as the day wears on on. None of that here. Or if there is, the sweet notes cover them well.

If you’re like me and a fan of the very-sweet, I’d highly recommend the lime and pomegranate “Hades” from Bath Sabbath, and the divine Chocolate Orange oil from Beards in Arms.

I should also mention, sadly, that the Honey Bourbon Beard Balm from TreeBeard does not make your bead smell like you just poured honey bourbon in it. Much to my disappointment. It’s a really great balm…. but still. It’s way more cedarwood than bourbon.

If you have any oil recommendations, please do share them in the comments!
