This week I was keen on buying some beard products and check out how different the beard would look and feel. So far I was using my after shave on the beard which was making it smell really nice and feel soft like when you use a conditioner.
The "Mr. Bear Wilderness Family" balm, from Sweden, arrived together with the tiny wax can "Capt. Fawcett's Moustache wax - Expedition Strength" with the 'famous' sandalwood scent, from the UK.
I applied the balm on the beard, quite oily (obviously for something purely made of oils) which makes me think on how that will affect my skin and maybe cause pimples to grow under the beard since oils on the skin are a big cause of that. My wife said that the smell of the balm is very strong and I smell like a forest, will see in a few days what's her assessment.
I applied the wax on my moustache and have mixed feelings about the smell and how efficient it is. Tests yet to be performed. For now I leave you with the facts, expensive products and I'm not yet sure if I will prefer the balm over my Nivea aftershave.
