Hello other gender!
It’s always nice to talk about you and your products! The way you have been fiercely competing with us on every front, I would say that the beauty industry is not lagging behind (I mean there is an influx of men care products in the market every now and then). From separate shampoos to face wash to body wash to moisturisers, you are building a parallel market. but there is one thing which’ll remain forever yours and where we can’t even step our foot into! And that is a manly beard and its products (and believe me we don’t want either).
But because of my investigating nature, I keep an eye on men products too. It not only gives me a good insight of this industry but also helps me know needs of the person I am sharing my life with. So while I was screening some of the beard care products in my local hypermarket’s shelves, I saw this small bottle of beard oil claiming to tame grizzly beards, it was Brisk Citrus Beard Oil.
I knew what they meant with grizzly because I’m dealing with one at home. So being a good wifey, I gifted it to my husband and then sat quietly for few days to notice his reactions. (Behind that out of blue love was my actual motive to know his experience, so that I could share it with you). And finally he spilled the beans and shared his experience and how it was, let me elaborate.

It is created with natural ingredients and essential oils.
It is greasy but absorbs quickly in the beard.
It keeps the beard soft and under control and adds shine to it.
It does control itchiness and beardruff to an extent.
The fragrance is light and refreshing but not overwhelming.
It smells nice, but dissipates in no time.
It does smell fruity and citrusy with a bergamot opening, so may not be a first preference for men with musky likelihood.
A few drops are not enough and a full pipette is needed to soften the beard satisfactorily which means it is going out to be expensive in the long-term.
