Here I am with another beard product review. After being asked about different recommendations for beards products, I found it more apt to find a man who had issues with his beards, but importantly who was ready to be my scapegoat. Once I found him, finding Percy Nobleman was no difficult. A fairly new company founded by a young entrepreneur with lot of passion and zeal to help bearded men with their day-to-day issues.
I checked their website and saw some really cool stuff listed there. Within no time, I ordered and got my very own beard kit ( alas! I never got a chance to use it 🤔). I ordered a beard balm, a beard wash (I’ll review them soon) and a signature scented beard conditioning oil.
So now, I had my products ready and my scapegoat too so I had to put them to test.
Let me first list out the issues, this male friend of mine had before using the products – dryness, coarseness, dullness, itching and unmanageable beard.
And after just a week of the application, he is not ready to even let me catch a whiff of the bottle (he’s way too protective of his favorite things). But let him be, his fully grown beard did all the talking. It looked shining like anything, looks well kept, hydrated and well behaved. So finally when he broke his silence about his experience, I managed to write this article.
But before that, it’ll be wise to let you know the uses of a beard oil.
Uses of a BEARD CONDITIONING OIL
Beard oil moisturizes facial hair and the skin beneath. It reaches the hair follicles and prevents hair from being brittle. This moisturization prevents general itchiness, flaking, dryness and irritation of the skin below the beard. It also makes the beard look neat, shiny, smooth and manageable; so can be used as a styling or grooming tool. Hence, a good beard oil should soften, tame, style, manage the beard, making it healthy and well kept.
About the brand
A British entrepreneur Freddy Furber founded this company and tentatively named after his Great-Grandfather, Percy Nobleman. Started in 2013, Percy Nobleman is a leading beard grooming brand in Europe .
It has a good market penetration with sale over 2000 outlets in 30 countries globally. The brand also has a comic book series ,The Adventures of Percy Nobleman which was published in 2015 and is the world’s first Instagram comic book.
A black sturdy box with a lot of branding carries the bottle. The box itself is no short of a good read. Apart from the ingredient list, directions to use, fragrance notes to application tips, it has directions to use in nine different languages including English.
The beard conditioning oil comes in a dark amber translucent spray bottle. (little surprised not seeing a dropper). The dark color keeps the properties of the oil formulation intact for a long time so that it does not get exposed to light and remains well stored in cool and dark bottle.
Another transparent cap keeps it spill proof. The bottle also has the information about the brand, ingredients and other necessary info.

Yay or Nay
Definitely a yay!
If you have just started growing beard or you are already with a thick mane,My verdict would be to not settle for cheap options available in the market. I personally like writing about positive products than bashing about the undeserved ones. So, I skipped those all together and wrote about this as it not only showed immediate results but kept on repeating its performance. anyone with any length of beard can use it and it is definitely going to turn those messy unruly hair to a beautiful man mane.
I’ll soon be sharing the experience of beard balm and beard wash, So keep visiting.
Thanks a bunch.
