For several years now, I’ve been using beard products. Balms, washes, oils, conditioners and the such. After purchasing products from corporate and small businesses, I prefer items manufactured by the latter.
The product easily emulsifies easily in my hands. It can be effortlessly worked into my beard which gives it a healthy look and shine. It’s a light to medium hold and a little goes a long way. Your beard may need to be tamed again later in the day though. I do wish it is was a heavier balm. The scent is good. Not overpowering and lingers for a long time. I’d say a good 8 -12 hour scent. One that would be good for the office and not overpower the noses of your coworkers.
You do need to emulsify/rub the balm in your hands to be pliable for your beard or goatee. Make sure to work it in thoroughly. A proper boar hair brush may be needed for proper proliferation of the balm into your beard.
I’m not quite sure yet if I will purchase this product again. It is possible. As my beard grows longer and thicker and requires a lighter balm at times, I may try the Big Bourbon balm.
Hope this helps you with your purchase and grooming.
