If you keep your face clean-shaven, try the silky-smooth finish of Blackbird Shaving Oil.

Blackbird

Birchbox Breakdown

You have many choices in beard oil, but only one that lets you smell like a gallant British adventurer. With a bold, elegant scent made exclusively for Birchbox, this artisanal oil will soothe and condition even the toughest of facial hair. Because the only itch you should feel is the itch to explore.

How it Works

The core of this blend is lightweight argan oil, a nourishing conditioner that softens hair and reduces itch without clogging pores. Notes of ink, tobacco, and paper craft a stylish-yet-soulful aroma that would be suited to Edmund Hillary (at least we like to think so).

How to Use

After cleansing, rub a few drops of oil in your palms, then massage into your beard until the formula has fully absorbed.

Great bottle

It's a subtle bear oil suitable to most men. I love the dropper packaging that makes it easy to use.

Beard Oil

I know it sounds weird, but it's an effective product. I don't currently have a beard but I'll be super excited to use it when I grow my full man beard in November.

Great moisture and scent
Sampled

Great product if you have a beard. The scent isn't too powerful if you don't use too much. Even if you don't have a beard or keep the stubly look this is great to moisturize the skin anyway.

Neat packaging

product looks neat but it didn't have much of a fragrance to it and it did not make my beard any softer. Girlfriend said she liked the smell so I guess that cool?

Great smell and makes your beard feel great

The combination of oils gives your beard a great fragrance. Not too pungent but also noticeable. Additionally it conditions your beard and softens it up making the wife very happy!

So beard oils are like any other oil when it comes down to the practical aspect. It's an oil, it can make your pores unhappy if you apply too much, and it can make your skin unhappy if you apply it in a patchy, uneven way.

This particular beard oil suffers from the same issue other beard oils suffer from. It's an oil. I mean, if there was some way to make it less oily and more solid-y, it'd be a no-brainer as it wouldn't involve dripping drops of it as though I was about to create a tincture of the finest aromatics and cleansing products and would instead create a foundational base that doesn't worry me that I'll be fighting acne at age 37.

That said, the smell is fantastic. The odor is the unmistakable feel that I've just stepped out of my dad's garage workshop, built a chest of drawers, and gotten a kiss on the mouth from my lovely significant other of-indeterminate-gender-for-the-purposes-of-this-review.

It's that good. It just inspires. So completely ignoring the oiliness of oil, it's so good for that smell. Feels nice, not too oily if you only use a few drops (3 in my case.)

In conclusion: Take the Nick Offerman challenge and do something with your hands; put this on your face.

Alright

The sample was packaged nicely, and I like the idea of a beard oil, but didn't particularly love the scent.
