I absolutely love both products, the beard oil is perhaps the best quality beard oil I’ve used. Perfect consistency, long lasting smell (which is top notch) and just a joy to apply.

five-stars ‘Amazing. I’ve had a beard for years and always got to a point where it itched too much.

I’ve used this daily for over a month and it’s been brilliant and doesn’t use up too quickly!’

five-stars ‘The best beard wash on the market!!!!!!!!!!! An absolutely brilliant beard wash… I’ve tried and still have around 5 different products ranging from £10 to £30 BUT those are staying on the shelf as this supersedes them all.’

five-stars Great product, my beard doesn’t feel dry and course any more.’

five-stars ‘Excellent product and much cheaper than buying bottled shampoos. Leaves my beard feeling soft and nourished. The only downside is that it’s black soap and can be quite messy….but small price to pay for a mighty looking beard.’

feed the beard (9)

got my black sheep beard shampoo bar yesterday. used it today. I must say I love the way you guys take so much care in your packaging. After first use I must say that I love the subtle earthy scent and it doesn’t overpower the beard oil used afterwards (The Wood chopper also from yourselves)

 

wax (2)

This stuff is my first foray into moustache ownership and I must say I’m impressed.The wax as it is in the tin is really quite hard, so you’ll have to work it hard with your thumb to soften it up into a more usable and malleable consistency. I’d suggest warming your hands or warming the wax itself over a radiator before doing this, as it will make the process a lot easier.
Once the wax is in your moustache, it stays in leaving behind nothing more than a beautiful, rugged, sculpted moustache of excellence for your peers to admire and swoon over.
Being predominantly made form beeswax, the smell is quite pleasant also, which is a good thing since it’ll be sat right under your snout for the whole day! I’d definitely recommend this, even to a first-time moustachio man.

I ordered this for my husband, and he was delighted with it. It has everything he needs to keep his unruly beard in check. Speedy shipping too. Would definitely recommend.

Great quality ,lasts longer than other beard soaps I’ve used also lathers up nicely without turning your beard in to a giant bubble, would highly recommend this and other audacious products.

The Soap not only  looks amazing but with ingredients such as Shea Butter, Avocado ( a very much non-existent ingredient in many male grooming products its has Vitamin A,B,K & E) so kudos 🙂 olive, activated charcoal mixed with essential oils – Tea Tree, Tangerine, Ylang-Ylang smells absolutely divine, washes out super easy and leaves your beard ready for the next part of your beard care routine … (read the rest of the review here)

“Daily routine includes a full beard wash and protect with #audaciousbeardco products. Love the oil, soaps and beard products I get from them. Just ordered another set of 3 oils, soap and a new comb. Have been buying gift sets from them for family and friends too. Even supplied the CEO of @yogscast , Mark Turpin with a set last year and he has duely thanked me for it. Keep it up @theaudaciousbeardco for your good work. I will continue spreading the word! #beard #beardoil #beardsoap #beardyman #bearded #beardclean #beardproducts #gentleman #soap”

woodsman‘Wearing a beard is one of life’s great pleasures. It’s a look that says, “Yes, I’m a man. I’ll chop down a tree and wrestle a bear for you – and then I’ll wrap you up in my arms and rock you to sleep. And I’m probably quite good at IT and pouring artisan coffee too.”

As a member of the bald-but-bearded community, I afford young swells the opportunity to address me as “Mr Upside-Down Head”. Others among them like to call me “Badger Beard” on account of the distinguished white that is an increasingly prominent feature of my face.

We all chuckle and then we make friends.

Yet ecstasy turned to agony when I contemplated the state of my skin under The Magnificence. It would itch and it would flake. It seemed like a price worth paying in order to look so dang handsome, but it was very irritating (quite literally).

Then along came The Audacious Beard Co. A few dabs of The Woodsman beard oil and I smelt divine, my beard felt heavenly … and the flaky skin was gone.

One day I shall look down from the mountaintop, king of all I survey, and say to myself, “The day that I started to treat my beard as lovingly as others treat it is the day that everything started to come good.”

Bought the survival kit for my husband for Christmas and he’s a changed man! Thought I’d get him big versions while we’re on a roll. He smells delicious! Thanks! cat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

shampoo bar“You can fight your beard and move the bar over the beard, but my preference is to let the bar foam in the hand and then divide it into the beard. After rinsing your skin and beard feels clean and soft. The smell mild and refreshing and best described as the smell of barbershops. Male, natural, but not predominant!

The Shampoo Bar from The Audacious Beard provides a thorough but gentle cleansing for the beard and underlying skin. Fine to use only, but for the ultimate care of your beard I also recommend to use a beard oil from The Audacious Beard You also grant yourself the best right.”  read the whole review over at Mensscene

 

BUCC

Our Buccaneer Beard oil has received the highest grading handed out so far on The Best Beard Oil Project, which puts us in joint first place among all the other oils!
This beard oil review site is run by the eccentric beard oil collector Bobert Brush, who in his search for the world’s best beard oil has made a pledge to travel to the far corners of the Earth to gather all known beard oil specimens into a single place!

The Buccaneer which was also included in the Independent’s ‘Indybest’ top beard oils article is perfect for all aspiring swashbuckling pirates.

Here is a excerpt from Bobert’s review:

‘I was transported away to an ancient Spain, wearing a golden rimmed cocked hat and brandishing a cutlass. I was holding hostage 15 hardy wenches, all bound and tied to my centre mast, surrounded by sack after sack of beautiful, plump, ripe seville oranges – freshly pillaged from God only knows where. Whilst the helpless wenches look on, consumed with desire, I continually bounce from toe to toe in a dance of bearded pirate fury, imbued with the undefeatable strength of ten bears.’

‘This soap is fantastic stuff. I’ve been using just normal shampoo for ages and didn’t think a specific beard shampoo bar was worth the cost. How wrong I was. My beard is tamed and seems to stay in shape for longer. It smells great too and you don’t need too much to get your beard really soaped up and clean. Definitely going to be ordering more. Loved the packaging too!’
(Great feedback from Andy at Beardyvelo.uk)

‘This is the kind of Beard Oil  I imagine Leonardo di Caprio has used while filming The Revenant. A real fearless scent for real men who like to do stuff in the wide open, like camping, building fires, or why not, fighting with bears …’

Fantastic to hear from Audacious Beardsman and photographer Jonathan Stockton . He gave us some great feedback and photographs  too:

‘I’ve previously attempted to grow a beard before but this time around, I discovered your wonderful products and I’ve noticed a huge difference in the texture and speed of growth of my luscious facial hair.

Even though my wife cannot abide my extenuated grisly appearance, I have every intention of culturing my facial fungus until the desire deserts me. I did think of growing it until the summer time but then I saw somewhere that manliness isn’t seasonal and this encouraged me to continue in my endeavours.’

lg‘lucky enough to be reviewing more cool beard products so here’s my “2 cents” on the @theaudaciousbeardco ‘s Beard Shampoo bar and their practical Audacious wooden soap dish. The Beard Shampoo Bar (£7.95) is sturdy, manly soap. This has me swayed being a fella who normally goes for a generic bottled beard shampoo to this. Gents this is great; it’s mild, with subtle hints of charcoal, you don’t need a lot, a wet, double hand cups worth for it to work it’s magic. (Don’t expect bubbles like a shampoo here) One rinse through and you’re done. The best thing about this is that it conditions the beard hair which normally doesn’t happen for me with a beard shampoo. There’s no real smell after use, which is a good thing as most of you will be oiling and / or balming up your face pelt. A solid 10/10 from me. Next up is the Wooden Soap Dish (£3.95). Now “Why bother?”, you might ask; well….the dish itself is simple yet quite stylish to look at, but the key feature is the grooving along the surface. These grooves help dry out your beard soap by letting air get to the underside of the bar. Simple but a sterling idea. No more slippy soap flying off the side of the shower/bath/sink so the soap has a fighting chance to dry the hell out! 9/10.’

2 (6)‘Ordered a shampoo bar and a Wood chopper oil yesterday, it arrived today. I’m very impressed with both products, the shampoo bar lathers up with just two rubs on a wet beard and leaves your beard feeling really clean and soft and smelling great. The beard oil is truly amazing, smells lovely and leaves your beard soft and conditioned. The other great thing about the oil is that it doesn’t leave your hands oily after use, I didn’t even need to wash my hands after applying the oil.’
– Thanks for the brilliant feedback Jason P :)#

 

 

The Wood Chopper

‘I’ll be honest with you.

In truth, I think it should be my girlfriend who should be writing up this

review, ever since I started using this oil – she seems to have spent more quality time with my beard than I have (smelling, touching and snuggling up to my face rug even more than usual).

Now. Just before we get started, in case you haven’t heard of the Audacious Beard Company, they are based down in Kent and founded by Jezz and Sam who stick to the raw basics of what makes a “good beard company” – beard loving people creating hand-crafted beard products, using only “natural ingredients”.

I’ve been applying it every morning for the last few weeks and every time I do I feel like I should be quickly following it up – by putting on a red n’ black chequered shirt – and picking up an axe on the way out to the woods.

Oh yes, it’s pretty darn woodsy alright.

They describe it as “bottled manliness with undertones of pine, bergamot and fearlessness” – what’s not to love?

The smell at first was quite… interesting, certainly rather potent (like most beard products really, when you crack them open), but I certainly find that after continued usage, your sense of smell gets somewhat accustomed to it, and then dilutes quite into a subtle musky scent.

I know for sure the girlfriend certainly digs it – and the smell lingers on throughout the day rather well (definitely a tick in the box for me in this regard) …’

Steven James Tait“So today i have used 2 of The Audacious Beard Co products. The soap i used in the shower and it smelt rather manly – thats the charcoal, still with light tones of tea tree and ylang-ylang. Once my beard was dry it was left residue free and tamed in comparisson to not using a specific beard soap/wash. Once dry i followed up with the beard balm, i have used other balms in the past and some have been quite bitty. However this has allowed me to shape and style without setting hard and has left my beard with a shine with no oily feeling. I suggest a hair dryer on hot for a few mins to soften the top of the balm – goes on easier. Two fantastic products that i would recommend. Hopefully coming to a stockist in Darlington Soon.” (Steven J  T)

bucc“Hand-blended and bottled by two artists in Kent, this citrus-smelling oil doesn’t leave behind a greasy feel, which can be a problem with some. Many of the ingredients are natural — tea tree and bergamot orange are among the contents here — and it is remarkably well-priced.”

‘Hey Sam, Jezz,
Just a thank you for the speedy delivery and quality of your products, been using them a few weeks now and my beard is free of split ends and tangles, and is almost as soft as it smells good grin emoticon
I will be a repeat customer… you have been warned >:○)

Shampoo Bar

 

 

 

An unexpected review (thanks Samantha) “This is the ultimate TOP – TO – TOE – UNISEX soap / shampoo bar!
As a girl I feel a bit silly reviewing a gentleman’s soap / shampoo bar – but WOW!
I’m so glad I hijacked my partner’s bar of it whilst in the shower – it’s gently exfoliating and invigorating on the body, but so silky on the skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and soft – without the tight, dried out feeling normal soap bars can leave behind. On my hair it frothed up beautifully, leaving it feeling really clean and, again, soft! It also smells wonderfully fresh, but not overpowering…. So all you girls out there with bearded – or unbearded – partners, I say again = it’s the best top to toe unisex shampoo / soap bar out there – just remember to share!
And next time we travel, we’ll no longer have to drag a multitude of different bottles away with us – just this one wonder bar. ‘’

bucc

‘-Tried this as an experiment. I have found that I really like this product. Plan to buy it in larger size next time. Love the scent and the way it make my beard shine.’

‘-Helped me fight off a bear in Switzerland using just stern looks and the wonderful scent of the oil. Found 3 mermaids in the ocean while diving as a result of using this oil. I trained an eagle to bring me tacos just using the power of the oil.
Only criticism is the bottle is not big enough!’

‘-Gorgeous earthy/woody smell and makes my hubbys beard look much tamer and helps his skin too. Great product’

‘I’ve been using all three of these Audacious Bear Repellents in the past few months and can safely say they are the manliest scented oils out there and are also far superior in quality to the countless others oils I’ve tried, if that’s not a winning combo I don’t know what is. I’ll be re-ordering all 3 in the larger bottle size to keep my beard smelling manly and keeping those Bears at bay . Long Live The Audacious Beard Co.’ (Conan Nicol)

‘Great stuff great smell rub it in sit back and watch the rugged manlyness growwwww!!’

‘Since I started using this oil so many women have approached me with a view to impregnation that I have considered starting to shave again. Wood cutting contracts are coming in so thick and fast I now burn them and no longer actually need to cut firewood. Trees whisper to me begging to be felled. If I sit and pause from my labours birds queue to nest in my beard. All is good.’

‘Bought this as a gift for my partner, who was starting to worry about his beard being rather coarse. He’s loving it! Despite always having been very low-maintenance, he’s enjoying the new beard pampering daily ritual and even looking foward to it. We are even already noticing an improvement in shine and texture over just a few days. Its best feature? The amazing smell. It’s just a pleasant, relaxing and comforting woodsy smell none of us can get enough of. Whilst we both hate wearing things like perfume or cologne, we just love this more natural aroma. In addition, the oil itself sinks in quickly and doesn’t make the beard look greasy in the slightest. The beard is ready for petting very nearly immediately after application.

The company itself was lovely to deal with and provided excellent and fast communication when answering a query I had, and offered an all-round great customer service experience that directly addressed my concern.

Can’t recommend the product, or company, any more. Thanks for the great service!’

‘This product has changed my life. People used point and laugh at my face, gasping for breath so they could muster the energy to wheeze the word “Tramp” between each prolonged gaffaur. Kids would hide behind their mothers “Who is that horrific desheveled beast Mummy?” they would cry as they were ushered into the nearest Greggs. Since I started a liberal application of ‘The Woodsman’ my glossy face main has become omnipotent and I am now worshiped as a pleasantly fragranced God.’

‘Great oil, smells amazing, keeps beard looking and smelking great for hours.’

“I have extremely coarse facial hair, it has been likened to a wire brush and I’ve tried everything to soften it in the past, daily conditioning, deep conditioning with hot towels etc etc and nothing has ever kept it soft for more than an hour.”

”I tried your beard oil for the first time yesterday after my morning shower and it’s brilliant!!! All of the spiky, prickly feeling disappeared and it stayed smooth and soft all day. I can’t wait to try some of your other products!!”

‘Simply brilliant, the beard now shines like a Crystal pony on a sunny day.’

‘the name needs changing to “sex Panther”!!!’

“Great product! My beard is grateful! Greetings from Italy.”

“Had 2 days, beard feels better already! Thank you!”

“As described, looking forwarded to growing a proper beard now!”

“very nice smell , very pleased ,recommended.”

“Thank you !!! Really manly smell love it. Time to fight a bear.”

“As described. …..no bears anywhere now!! Thank you

This Buccaneer beard oil customers comment made us chuckle:
“Fast delivery and smells amazing! Sexy beards ahoy!!!!!”

“Just applied the Buccaneer Oil onto my whiskers. First product I’ve used since growing it mid may. Looking forward to having a soft beard! Nice subtle smell. Will be using it everyday from now. ”

‘I’ve been using the Buccaneer to help keep my beard from being too mutinous as I attempt to grow it out to a length even the oldest of folk singers would be jealous of.’

Brilliant feedback from Jono:
‘Hi guys,

I purchased some of your beard balm and well what can I say?

The stuff is awesome!!!

This is my first time growing a beard, but the discomfort that came with it prior to using your product was the only thing putting me off keeping it.

As soon as I started using it, it became less itchy and more manageable!”

Congratulations on creating such an awesome product, it’s a real pleasure to use!
