Getting That Majestic Beard

IMG_6941As a dad and a husband I usually get a lot of flack about my beard. It hurts, it tickles, it’s gross, it’s tangled, it’s itchy, etc, etc… I have heard all of the complaints from my wife and kids as well as received some stranger than usual looks my way while rocking out my un-managed facial masterpiece. One night my daughter would not give me a bed time kiss and while she was smiling and giggling about it I asked her why doesn’t dad get a kiss and she pointed at my beard as if it were a monster. My heart broke. It was at that point that I knew I needed to do something. I felt like I only had two options, cut it all off or start actively managing this mess. I chose the latter.

Luckily for me reached out recently wanting to send me some organic beard oil and balm to get my dad-ish opinion. I have never used any sort of oils or balm on my beard before so I wasn’t exactly sure of the best way to approach this nest so I did a little research on YouTube and reached out to a few buddies that have some magnificent beards and asked what would be the best way of going about this.

Lovely Beards sent over some incredibly nice smelling vanilla sandalwood oil and balm. Holy smokes these both smell amazing. I had always though my Old Spice was nice but this scent is just spectacular. I can’t stop taking in the lovely aroma. But enough of that, how does the actual product stack up against my birds nest beard?
