Being a bearded gentleman I am constantly on the look out for a great quality beard oil that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Far too many grooming brands have jumped on the beard oil band wagon and are trying to charge over the top prices for sub standard products.
A couple of weeks ago Hamilton’s beard oils were brought to my attention – their Vanilla & Lime oil was recommended to me by a fellow bearded gent so I thought I’d give it a go. A sweet, yet noticeable fragrance the Vanilla & Lime oil stays true to it’s description and remains recognizable throughout the day. The price was very reasonable for a 30ml bottle (£12) and is considerably cheaper than a number of other oils on the market.
The fragrance of the Vanilla & Lime oil consists of grape seed oil, crambe seed oil, almond oil, castor oil, eucalyptus, cedar wood and aloe vera.
Not only does it smell great but perhaps more importantly it keeps your beard looking and feeling healthy. During the winter months it is imperative to moisturise. The oil works to keep the skin and hair in good shape, as they naturally lose moisture as the colder months set in. Hamilton’s in house blog #HamiltonsClub brilliantly demonstrates the necessity of beard oils for the modern bearded gentleman. They describe how their beard oils not only keep the beard hair healthy but also hydrate the skin and prevent any flaky dandruff under the beard which any long term beard aficionado can understand and relate to.
Hamilton’s are now branching out; refusing to rest on their beard oil success they have diversified into beard balms, moustache waxes and have plans for hair pomades and more. Hamilton’s are certainly ones to watch in the male grooming world.
Next I’ll be trying their Sandalwood Beard Oil, recently voted top out of a variety of beard oils by AskMen.com.
