You get your hands on the Alpha Male from Bob’s Beard Oil from the store here, bobsbeardoil.bigcartel.com/

Greetings, once again I bring you a little gem of  product from the UK, Dorset in fact which is a beautiful place to visit its picturesque and very much an outdoorsy kind of place.  I spent a week there last year visiting such treasures as Monkey World, some great historic areas and the dramatic Durdle Door.  I was not aware however that another great feature of Dorset was it being home to Bob’s Beard oil which has been created to care for and tame those wild and rugged hairs that a life in the outdoors may force upon you.  I found the sample bottle of the oil being offered on Intsagram and it was a very good £4 too, the fact I have just a moustache means that this rather diddy sample will still last me a fair while.

I was very impressed by the list of ingredients, it contains all the big hitters we would associate with good quality facial hair care, this is lifted from the site:  Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Oil, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Parfum 

We are strongly against animal testing, which means you can buy our products in confidence knowing that they have not been tested on animals.

£1 from every 50ml bottle of Alpha Male purchased will be donated to Diabetes UK.

So with that in mind how does the Bob’s Beard Oil score in the Beard Oil Trinity?

Softness- Well jut look at the ingredients and ask yourself if you think it will soften your facial hair, if you are unsure then let me help you out, YES!  Simple as that really, a blend of 6 oils all known to have health giving protection qualities to hair as a base means that this oil really does work wonders on the hairs.  I should say that my hair is pretty soft anyway due to my care routines but I definitely noticed a softness to my moustache when using this oil.  This lasted a for a long time too and if this oil is used daily I think even those chaps with bristles like a yard broom will be delighted and rewarded with baby hugging softness! The hairs also felt very silky and smooth and definitely more cooperative when it came to styling too.  One other remarkable feature of this oil was the added volume I noticed which is probably due to the hairs absorbing the oils and becoming more hydrated and healthier.  So if you suffer from thin or patchy hair this may well help give the illusion of a bigger beard or moustache.  Top Marks to the chap behind Bob’s Beard Oil,a great blend of base oils show’s he knows his stuff. The application is good too, a little thick and golden in colour the oil absorbs well and quickly and I didn’t find that my fingers felt greasy.

Shine- I am happy to report that this oil does mighty fine here too, a lovely light shimmer to my hairs without the look of grease.  blond moustache was certainly taking on a golden hue in the sun and for those of you with darker hairs this will give a great highlight to your facial hair I am sure.

Scent- Simple scent element her with the addition of Sandalwood to the base oils, which all have their own scent too.  The result of this mix is a nice sandalwood aroma with a backdrop that at times is soapy and clean smelling.  The scent lingers for some time to and even after a good nights sleep I noticed the morning shower unlocked a bit more of this tidy little oil.

If you think this is your kind of oil then please visit the website and treat yourself.  I have been told by the man himself that some new things are in the pipeline, what that is I don’t know but given the success of this oil I am most certainly looking forward to the future of the Bob’s Beard oil range.

    I bought some Bob’s Beard Oil on the strength of this review and have since bought more. I have a fair collection of oils and balms but I have to say that this is my beard’s absolute favourite, my beard loves the stuff.
    For a strong scent go elsewhere but for a soft beard and a subtle clean scent this is perfect.

      I’m very pleased to hear that, I do beleive this oil deserves to be better recognised and you have prompted me to dig out my sample to try it again. Thanks for the feedback and comment
