Oils and Balms fit for the King
I’ve recently stepped into the world of beard care, gone are the days of an unkempt, smelly beard (or so my wife called it). It IS possible to have a coiffed, manicured Man Face. Wandering through different brands and scents, a world of beard care products exist out there, but when it comes to Wild Boar even the baby Jesus would stop and take notice.
In learning the proper procedure to beard care you need to apply an oil to soften and make the beard manageable. Wild Boar’s oils are the smoothest, buttery in application, and make the beard full and soft. When I applied the oil for the first time, it absorbed quickly and made what had been dry coarse hair instantly supple. The difference was Night and Day. Unlike other brands that leave your beard oily and slick to the touch, Wild Boar’s oil locks into the beard hair, and moistens the skin underneath to stop any flaking or dry itchy feeling. Even living in the harsh, cold, windswept climate of Minnesota the connection of beard and oil remain for an all-day feel and scent. The SCENT – in the words of Ulysses Evertt McGill “the pleasing odors half the point” – with Wild Boar it’s the WHOLE point (and some bonus points to spare). After a long day in and out of meetings, grabbing the kids from after school activities, and the stress of homework duty – at the end of the day the Mrs. nestles in to the nested scent and exclaims, “OH you smell so good, I want to eat your face.” Whoa Mama!
When it comes to the balm, a little goes a long way, the recipe Wild Boar has created for their balm makes application after the oil wonderfully robust. In the mornings, after I’ve applied my oil I generally finish my morning routine before applying the balm and leaving the house for the day. Rubbing the balm between my hands before application feels decadent. Then putting it through my beard, the hairs receive its benefit. Wild Boars balm make my beard so full and soft. Unlike other beard balms that leave your beard glistening and leave a residue when you stroke your beard, Wild Boar stays where it’s meant to stay – on your beard.
Wild Boar - I’m going to be boorish about promoting you to every bearded bro I come across.
