Prior to receiving this beard oil I tried 2 or 3 other brands and wasn't very impressed with the results. Many made my beard feel as if I had just slathered my face down with Wesson oil. I was very pleasantly surprised with this one however. It absorbs well and doesn't seem to leave behind a greasy feeling. I also find that it has helped moisturize the skin under my beard preventing the itching & flaking associated with seasonal dry skin. All of that plus a fantastic scent, needless to say this one has ended up on my "must have" list!
