The Breaking Beard Company are a small independent producer of beard oils and balms. We were lucky enough to get a package from these guys a few weeks ago, and we dutifully sent it on to one of our reviewers – here it is!
So today I received a very well put together package from the Breaking Beard Company that contained a 10ml beard oil and 30ml of beard balm, and a personalised card. These guys make an instantly good impression with this personal touch, which is a lot better than some established brands!
Breaking Beard Company Beard Oil
The oil has three carrier oils – sweet almond oil, argan oil and jajoba oil. I was glad to see this mixture as I think a lot of the bases are covered with these carriers. Sweet almond is particularly good for rough and dry skin (which I have) and so this gets a resounding yes from me from the outset. I’ve always wondered why more beard oils don’t use almond oil.
• Tea tree
• Pepper black
• Ylang ylang
• Vitamin e oil
The addition of vitamin E oil promotes hair growth, which is another beneficial aspect to the oil.
On the ingredient front, it ticks most of the boxes I would look for in a quality oil. It also smells great and is long lasting. I used it in the morning before 10am and it would last most of the day. Indeed, I got a few comments on the scent of it which is always a good sign!
Overall, the oil is a great one. I would recommend it to anyone. There are a few things I would change personally, but this is more to do with the branding (which I don’t like) more than the actual product itself.
If you want to pick it up, they ship worldwide. They’re not an Amazon (I don’t understand that, because Amazon are a selling machine!) but if you would like to pick up this oil, MyManBeard readers have a special subscription code MYMANBEARD for 15% off!
Breaking Beard Company Beard Balm
Moving on to their beard balm, and this has the same forgettable and overly-busy packaging and labeling, but let’s not worry too much about that and get to the actual stuff inside the tin.
The ingredients are as follows:
• Shea Butter
• Sweet almond oil
• Argan oil
• Vitamin E oil
• Tea Tree
• Ylang Ylang
So with such a similar ingredient list to the beard oil, it is obviously going to have a similar scent. Thankfully this is a great thing, because it smells wonderful.
The balm itself is a nice consistency, and scoops easily onto the nail. I’ve been using it now for two weeks and I really really like it. I’m going to continue using this until it’s gone and hopefully then they’ll be up on Amazon and I’ll buy more!
These guys obviously have a passion for quality, and it’s great to see such a fledgling operation thrive in the quality department. I’m sure they’ll get more success with a better distribution chain in the future.
