Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent!

That’s why The Movember Foundation are taking action.

They’re the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. They’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

They know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. They’re independent of government funding, so they can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years they’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.

By 2030 they’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.

Earl Grey Beard Oil – Review by The Beard Oil Pledge

earl

by Bobert Brush

OPENING COMMENTS

Bobert Brush likes nothing more than a nice cuppa tea.

Apart from a cup of coffee.

But that aside, nothing beats the good old fashioned British cure all. And so it is fitting that Viking Beard Stuff – Norse themed boutique apothecary based in England – provide us with the truth on the matter. Earl Grey is a British tea scented with bergamot. I’ve never much cared for the stuff myself. And now it is obvious why! Bergamot is much more suited to being smeared all over your chops instead!

For though it makes a dull and uninspiring tea, bergamot makes for a blinder of a beard oil!

Enough said.

I’m itching to tell you all about it, so let’s see how it fares the review process !

LINGERABILITY

The industry average benchmark for lingerability is 30 minutes (I mean genuine lingerability – not a faint impression that that is left more in your head than in your beard).

Using the sniff test, this specimen scores 45 minutes!

Therefore, it is above average and I grade it:

EMANATION

This is a decently strong aroma. In fact I’d say it’s strength has been engineered perfectly to compliment its scent.

It emanates with the same force as an over-muscled and under-brained Viking dullard slapping you on the chin with an over-caloused hand.

That (in case you can’t tell) is Bobert Brush’s version of high praise!

In the formal test these anecdotes were edified with a score of 1.55 feet in the emanation test.

EMOTIONAL RESPONSE

It’s simply a lovely experience applying this beard oil.

The simplicity of bergamot and lime is very refreshing and combined in the perfect ratio.

Paradoxically, this recipe somehow combines the calming and refined essence of high tea, with the valiant and proud heart of Nordic energy.

For just the briefest of moments I was imbued with the unconquerable soul of a Viking warlord.

GREASINESS

We don’t have any issues with this specimen in the greasiness stakes.

I was curious to see how the Earl Grey would perform in this test, since it leverages two oils that both have a reputation in the industry for being nefariously greasy – argan and castor.

However, could it be that this reputation is as baseless as the pervasive myth that Vikings were nothing more than savage barbarians? When in fact the evidence suggests they were proud warriors of a learned and high culture ?

I think so. It must be the high quality carrier oils used, or perhaps the secret ratio of almond and jojoba offsetting the greasiness factor. Somehow the Viking Beard Stuff Crew have created a light and thin oil that nourishes without being greasy.

A good result.

HAIR IMPACT

All the usual benefits were bestowed upon me by this specimen. Improved management, enhanced lustre, conditioning and nourishment.

The beard seemed especially smooth to the touch after application.

I even noticed a small decrease in bristle indentations after the blu tack test!

SKIN IMPACT

Now I was really impressed by the skin impact of this oil.

I used a droplet to massage into my cheek as I happened to have some flaky and dry skin just there. The Early Grey moistured the area and delivered a nourishing impact without leaving any grease on the surface at all.

Now compared to smearing olive oil all over your face (which I’ve done many times – it’s a hard life being a professional beard oil collector), that is a profound performance!

VALUE

A 30ml bottle of Earl Grey will set you back £9, with free Postage within the UK! International shipping is available and priced at checkout.

Therefore, the price per ml is a mere £0.30

My industry analysis of UK beard oil tells me the median price per ml for beard oil produced in the UK is £0.60 precisely.

As such, the Earl Grey is exactly half of the average market price. This gives it a base value score of 78%.

However, I am also awarding a 10% adjustment for uniqueness, as I have not seen a tea themed beard oil anywhere else before.

OVERALL

So, overall, based on the weighted factoring of all criteria, the Earl Grey by Viking Beard Stuff scores an incredible:

A light and refreshing oil that will nourish your beard, make you smile – and leave your wallet intact. 

Yours
Bobert Brush

About Us

Beard Company

History tells us that the beard was a sign of power, high social status and wisdom. Norse Sagas tell of women competing over who gets the best man, with the best beards regarded as a sign of virility.These battle-hardened warriors used their Beards to intimidate inhabitants of foreign lands whilst charging at them with their battle-axes and spears, striking fear into their unsuspecting victims.

Vikings needed to keep their faces warm during the freezing Scandinavian winters and protect their skin from windburns whilst sailing on the Icy seas of the North. Thus they would take great pride in looking after the Beards which sat upon their faces, and rightly so!

At Viking Beard stuff we also take great pride in the products we provide you, in order to protect your Beards and skin. We carefully create all our products by hand in small batches, using only natural materials and Oils as the Vikings would have.

Growing Your Viking Beard

Viking Helmet

Growing your Viking Beard.

Growing a beard is a commitment…It’s a commitment that we know the Vikings took seriously.

To the Vikings the Beard was a Sign of power and wisdom with Norse Sagas telling us of women competing over who gets the best man, with the best Beards regarded as a sign of virility.

The Vikings used their Beards in intimidating inhabitants of foreign lands, whilst charging at them with their battle axes and their spears. The Vikings also used their beards for more practical reasons, such as keeping their faces warm during the freezing Scandinavian winters and protecting their skin from wind burns on the Icey seas of the North. Thus they would take great pride in looking after the hair that covered their faces..

Here are a few tips on growing your Viking Beard.

  1. LEAVE IT ALONE!!!

Hold off from any styling or trimming FOR AT LEAST THE FIRST MONTH of growing your Viking Beard. We like to call this ‘The Four Week Rule’. You are more than likely going to cut off more than you wanted, meaning you’re going to have an uneven looking Beard and set you back in your Beard growing progress.

The reason we recommend the ‘Four week rule’ is because, generally, this is the point that most people’s Beards will begin to join up. For some people this may take longer so BE PATIENT!!!

  1. SCRUB!

Now it’s quite easy to forget about the skin lying beneath the mass of hair that sits upon it. Buts it’s incredibly important for your Beards growing journey to look after the skin that provides the strong platform and feeding ground for that perfect Viking Beard.

Use an exfoliator to scrub away any mud, sweat and claret. This keeps the skin free of dead skin cells that cause the dreaded ‘Beard itch’ and ‘Bearddruff’ and helps with the beard growing process, making way for more hair to push through.

  1. WASH!

Us Vikings and our Beards are a breeding ground for filth and stinking odours.

It’s Important to cleanse your Beard with a suitable Beard shampoo. This will cleanse and condition your beard without stripping natural oils away which can leave it dry and brittle. The skin on our face is a lot more sensitive than the skin on our head, so Vikings with particularly sensitive skin will benefit more from a Beard shampoo. Keep an eye for our Beard shampoo bar coming soon!

  1. MOISTURISE!

Now that you’ve scrubbed that dead, grimey skin away, cleansed and got rid of that stench from that Viking Beard, it’s time to replenish it with goodness and moisturise the hair and skin that supports your beard.

Beard hair takes moisture away from the skin, the external environment (especially when you’re standing on a Viking ship in the middle of the North sea) will then dry out your Beard, leaving you with flaky skin and a hard, coarse beard.

Our VikingBeardStuff Beard oil will moisturise the skin and the hair from the follicle to the tip. This will soften even the coarsest of Beard hairs as well as preventing ‘Beardruff’ and the dreaded ‘Beard itch’ giving you and your Viking Beard a nice sheen and healthy look.

Harald Hardrada ‘The Last great Viking’

Harald Hardrada

Known as the most coldblooded leader that the Viking world had ever seen. Harald Hardrada was a giant of a man renowned for his victories he had won as a mercenary in the elite Vangarian guard. His reputation for crushing enemies and his continuous warfare earned him the nickname ‘Hardrada’, (Hard Ruler).

Almost seen as god like, Norse sagas had said he once sailed to the end of the earth just to take a look over the edge.

Born in 1015, Harald ‘Hardrada’ Sigurdsson was the son of the Norwegian king, Sigurd the Sow. At the age of 15 Harald fought his first battle alongside his brother, Saint Olaf, It would also be here where he would witness his brother get hacked to death on the battlefield of Sticklestad.

We are told that he faked his own death to gain access within a fortified city in a coffin, only to jump out and tear down unsuspecting inhabitants with his axe, his men following swiftly afterwards ambushing the city and taking everything in their sight.
It is said during his final moments at the battle of Stamford Bridge in York, he tore off his chainmail armor in a berserk fury, hacking down numbers of Englishmen until he was finally taken down by an arrow which ripped through his throat in year 1066.

Odin’s men rushed forwards without armour

“Odin’s men rushed forwards without armour, were as mad as dogs or wolves, bit their shields, and were strong as bears or wild oxen, and killed people at a blow, but neither fire nor iron told upon them. This was called Berserkergang”.
