We recently received a package from Hashtag Awesome containing a small sampling of their Gentleman’s Beard Oil. After sneaking a little smell of the oils we immediately contact our RENASCENCE Magazine Sub-Editor, Buntu Sotyantya to come collect and test. He is the only one on the team with a flourishing beard. Luckily for us, Buntu was happy to oblige.
After a few weeks of use Buntu found the oil to work best if applied every other day, as opposed to everyday. Generally, the beard would dry after midday as you head out to evening. It applied smoothly with minimal oil residue on the hands. Something to note is the textural difference of hair between races, so this specific reaction to the beard from the oils might not happen to someone with perhaps less aggressive facial hair. The oil is fragrant but not in an overpowering way.
Essentially, the beard oil is cool. One just needs to decipher the right amounts of oil to use per application to take full care of your beard and its specific texture.
