First Olympian Beard Oil Review
This is my first attempt at growing a beard, and it's come a long way as it approaches 3 months of growth. The difference in my facial forest since I first introduced you all to it in this earlier post to how it is now is immense. No longer is it neatly pressed to my face. No longer is it quite so easily tamed. I've no experience in the ways of a beardsman and I knew that I needed help. Luckily for me, the customer service at First Olympian is second to none and they've helped me grow to love my beard all the more. They've told me how to treat it, what it needs and how to use the new products.
(My beard 1 month in)
First Olympian are a small, family run business based in Durham, England. They're an artisan fragrance company that specialises in beard care and pride themselves in the small things that matter. Everything they offer is handmade, traceable and produced with a keen and watchful eye on the fine details. What's more, they give back to society and you being one of their customers help them do that. The First Olympian family has a young member that lives with autism and in his honour, 5% of every bottle of beard oil sold goes to the National Autistic Society. For me, that's the perfect justification when parting with cash for a luxury purchase. I say luxury, because when I first ordered from their website that's what it felt like to me - a luxury purchase. After one week using the oils, I can already confirm that it's most definitely not a luxury purchase; it's an essential! No day going forward will my beard leave the house without being fed this new found necessity.
I purchased a luxury care kit that I was blown away by. A collectors item made up of 4 bottles of beard oil, Japanese adjustable grooming scissors and handmade walnut wood beard comb all housed in a hand-cut, hand stitched English bridle leather roll. It's fast becoming one of my favourite possessions. The four oils are the main focus of what First Olympian are all about, and are four oils I imagine they're very, very proud of. Each oil is focused on a base of the very best organic grade Moroccan argan oil and further enhanced with complex blends of a variety of essential oils and fragrances. They're all exquisite in their own right, and I don't yet have a favourite. The four of them are al different from eachother and suited to different occassions. Here's what First Olympian say about each...
After the very first use of a First Olympian beard oil, my facial hair recognised the benefits. A small amount applied to my beard left it feeling noticeable softer, more manageable and smelling incredible. After a weeks useage, the dry patches in my skin beneath the hair have vanished completely. Rubbing these oils through my facial mane is my new favourite part of my grooming routine, and I always walk out of the bathroom on a high. I had a very important meeting regarding my blog this week and I nailed it and got the result that I wanted. I tweeted that morning 'This scent made for Kings and Gods by @Beardoil_First if filling me with confidence for this meeting' and I am absolutely positive that the oil played a part in my performance that day.
I'm smarter with a beard - for a man stroking his beard is infinite in his wisdom. I'm a better parent with a beard - for a man that comes through the itching phase unscathed is a man that possess much patience. I'm a better man with a beard, and First Olympians beard oils leave me feeling God like in stature. I'm not exaggerating either... Since oiling, I've been complimented every single day on my beard.
Note: I purchased the care kit myself, but in addition I was sent sample bottles of all 4 beard oils in return for this honest review. All opinions are my own and truthful.

I had no idea there were so many beard products!! Yours looks great and I love the look and sound of that kit!
I guess if you are going to do it having the right tools is essential.
I'll have to mention these to the other half, he likes growing out his beard but it could do with some TLC.

The mister has a few beard oils at the minute and I think they are such a great idea!

I hadn't realised that there were so many products for beard care, but it's clearly paid off because it looks very neat and trim.
