We’ve had some great entrants so far, with strong beards and stronger pitches! It’ll be difficult to decide on a winner, let alone THREE runners-up! It’s hard work, but we take pride in it…

In case you missed it, we recently sweetened the deal for our winner with the help of Totem Wolf. We now have five bottles of Premium Beard Oil, a box of Beard Savon Soap (contains two blocks) AND the offer of 10% off all Totem Wolf purchases for a year!!

The winner will receive two bottles of the Premium Beard Oil and the box of Beard Savon Soap, as well as the 10% off offer. Our three runners up will receive a slightly smaller, but equally respectable einvestment of one bottle of Premium Beard Oil.

So get to it! You have until Midnight GMT 31st March 17 to enter your beard and prove to us that you have what it takes to win!

#Beardcare Review – Totem Wolf Blend 79

If you’ve been paying close attention to our social media lately, you’ll know that we love the Totem Wolf brand. Their professionally crafted beard oils, and other beardcare products, have been keeping our beards bushy, bright and beautiful for a while now.

I’ve been lucky enough to sample a few of the lovely beardcare concoctions at Totem Wolf HQ, they were even kind enough to get Bristlr to Pride! But let’s talk about Blend 79 (as seen in GQ Magazine) and why you should get in to it. Check at the end of this article for a store link!

Have you ever thought you need more variety in your beard oil? Want to be greeted by a different scent each time you give it a sniff? Blend 79 has an eclectic mix of carefully selected scents that all come together to make one beautifully sweet sniff.

When the scent first hits you, you’ll be greeted with the sweet yet minty top notes of Grapefruit and Peppermint. These scents are great mood boosters, and combined are great to help with depression, colds and even headaches. The oils are also antibacterial and antiseptic, so no nastiness in your beard! And those are just the top notes!

It doesn’t stop there. Shortly after the initial application, as the top notes begin to fade, it’s time for the heart notes to kick in! A strong combination of Rosemary and Clary Sage.

If you’re feeling a bit run down, the Rosemary is a great mind booster. It’s a fresh, minty scent with a woody undertone (for that touch of masculinity, if that’s what you’re after). The Clary Sage mixes well, with a sweet, nutty scent that calms and helps with stress.

Fun fact, Clary Sage is also an aphrodisiac. Use with caution! If you know what I mean…

A little while longer and the base notes of Cedarwood and Patchouli Dark come out.

The Cedarwood, as the name suggests, is a very woody scent, with a touch of warmth. What’s that? Perfect for the winter? Perfect Christmas present for your bearded buddies? Yeah, that’s what I thought you said. More mind clearing scents to follow with the Patchouli Dark oil, which is deliciously sweet and rich, with added earthy tones.

So, how would I describe Totem Wolf’s Blend 79? Well, it’s definitely a journey of a scent. It’s a complexly sweet scent, that evolves whilst it’s on your beard! Who doesn’t want a dynamic scented beard? I know I do!

Speaking from experience, I can tell you that Totem Wolf beard oil’s are worth every penny. You get a lot for your money, not just in quantity (the bottles last a long time) but also quality. Each bottle is delicately blended with care and attention to detail. They also look super classy.

What’s that? You want your own bottle? Or thinking it would make a great present for your beardy pal this Christmas (Winter is coming, just sayin’)? Get Blend 79 here!

 

Recommend Your Barber for Totem Wolf!

Our pals over at Totem Wolf are looking for barbers to stock their beard products!

If you’re a local barber in Manchester and you want to stock some quality beard oils, soaps and more, we can’t recommend Totem Wolf enough! We’ve even been gifted with our own, unique blend! So, if you feel that the oils on offer aren’t for you, drop a message. Perhaps you could have your own blend.

Not a barber yourself? No problem! There’s still an offer for you if you think your barber is interested in Totem Wolf products.

If you recommend a barber and they choose to stock Totem Wolf’s products you’ll be gifted with your own 30ml bottle of Blend 79 beard oil!

To recommend your barber, just drop Totem Wolf a message and get your barber to do the same. Then, if your barber says yes, we’ll say yes to gifting you with your free bottle of Blend 79!

So get recommending!

Post Launch – Totem Wolf

Last week I was delighted to hear the Bristlr team had been invited to Totem Wolf’s Premium Beard Oil Launch. I couldn’t have said yes faster.

I left with a specially selected cake, my very own bespoke blend of beard oil and full of cheer (in part courtesy of the beautifully blended, beard oil inspired gin cocktails).

Take a look at all these beautiful beards!

Beautiful Beards

And that’s only a handful of them!

With a lovely welcome from Totem Wolf’s founder, Philip and a warm, fuzzy and friendly atmosphere, a great time was had by all! Over 100 samples of Blend 79, the latest scent by Totem Wolf, were given away. No one left empty handed!

And did I mention the gin cocktails? The Font Manchester created two cocktails, with ingredients found in Totem Wolf’s oils, specifically for the night. It might sound a little odd, drinking beard oil cocktails, but I couldn’t get enough of them!

The party may be over, but the gifts are still coming!
