‘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.”

It has been fantastic seeing your Audacious Beard selfies, a big thanks to everyone who got involved. Christopher Corra succeeded in getting 97 likes for his selfie and will receive a Beard Wash & Groom Gift Set.
Here at Audacious Head Quarters we have decided that the month of December needs an Audacious prize competition to celebrate the season – so rather than the usual two competitions we are focussing on one special festive prize = the winner will receive one of our Beard Oils & Beard Balm gift sets – which contains all three beard oils, and the beard balm.
To enter= message us a photo of you holding an Audacious Beard Co product, showing off your awesome beard / moustache BUT make sure there is something festive in the photo… maybe a decoration, Christmas tree, what about Santa Claus? The most imaginative and Audacious photo will receive the gift set in time for Christmas!
Ste Be from Cornwall who shaved off his Audacious beard to reveal a rather spectacular Moustache for Movember wins our special ‘November gift set which includes a face cloth from our sister company Cotton & Jute.Matt from Hertfordshire wins the ‘Customer selfie’ competition receiving a bottle of Woodsman beard oil.
The Wordsmithery prize goes to Dave from Essex who wins a tin of moustache wax. This was Dave’s winning word composition:
‘I was just plain old Dave from Dagenham – until I bought some of your wondrous moustache wax to encourage my Movember effort – now I have a twinkle in my eye, a villainous twist to my tache and I’m known here abouts as That Dastardly Dapper Dave – I’ve decided to keep the moustache … thank you sirs !’
Now after all that …go treat your mo for all its hard work this Movember…
All natural and handmade, our moustache wax is hydrating, strengthening, nourishing and perfect for maintaining meticulous moustaches of every length and nature. Suitable for discerning chaps or cheeky cads with jaunty curls or villainous twists – it can even tame the more wild and roguish of whiskers.
We thought we would share the awesomeness of some of our Audacious bearded brothers… to inspire those whiskers to get growing …
