‘I bought The Wood-Chopper beard oil and Audacious Beard shampoo bar this week and received them today. 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. The shampoo bar is equally as good. I’ve never used a bar before and thought I would try it. They’re simply two high quality products which I love already. Thank you.’
‘This stuff smells great and goes on a treat. Keeps my wanna-be Wolverine / Beckham beard soft and manageable – especially after a workout.’
‘Great product. Was a hit as a birthday present!’
‘This stuff is awesome. I had not tried a beard balm before. It keeps it really conditioned, great delivery time too.’
‘Balm keeps the beard (and eyebrows) under control – This stuff is great!’
‘Great stuff, really softened the beard up and moisturised the skin so it was not itchy….’
‘this is my favourite beard company I use your balm time and time again nothing compares!
‘I slap some on then warm it up with the wife’s hair dryer whilst brushing my magnificent beard. Smells great for the rest of the day. Out of all the things I’ve thrown at my beard , this beard balm has been my favourite, both to use and to smell.’
‘This is easily one of the best things I have ever bought. The bar makes my face feel so clean and tidy I use it every night and I would never use another product for my beard. I adore it and have just bought another you have no need to worry about looking dirty or anything it washes out fine and the charcoal makes my skin feel super cleansed!’
‘Got my buccaneer beard oil and beard balm yesterday. The oil is amazing even after only 1 application my beard feels soft and not had a single itch since put it on. Can’t wait to try the balm. Should of got a comb cos all I wanna do now is touch my beard. Happy Xmas folks.’
“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”
‘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
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.’

‘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 :)#
‘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) …’

“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)
“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.”

Some of our favourite testimonials and customer feedback :
huge thanks guys…….
‘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 >:○)
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. ‘’
‘-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 ”

“Awesome product. Waited to use before review. Just awesome.”
Brilliant feedback from Jono:
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!
