Beard Man

So this is not my man. And I am not sure I really like this example of a beard, but it is representative of the new wave of beards that seem to be everywhere. Sportsmen, celebrities, models – everything that the marketing people want to sell you is being held, watched, driven, eaten and drunk by Beard Man. Truly, take a look around.
No longer relegated to the Grandpa or hillbilly, Beard Man can be young, fit and famous. In my case he is my man. And I like his beard, kept short enough to add colour, a bit of texture and interest. When my man and I first met he had a beard – a longer one and quite gingery aka Viking Man. He determined that any woman that could see ‘through’ the beard to the real man was a keeper. Here I am, many, many years later. And decades on fashion has brought it back. What do you think? Do you like Beard Man?

Beard Oil post Movember

Many moons ago when I first dated my man he had a beard. Now I am not a real facial hair kinda girl. But for him it worked, I think. He is currently sporting a beard again, albeit a closely clipped, rugged one that I approve of. So when I spied this fabulous looking product I had to find out more. Beard Oil. So this great product I found at Bodie and Frou from Prospectors Co has inspired me. It is Movember here in Australia and many a clean shaven man has taken to growing a moustache to raise money for Men’s Health. It is a great cause. But I suspect some of these young men may end up going the full beard come December, as it seems to be so on trend right now. 

If you were not sure about the beard or the oil, may the advertising spin will lure you in. Funny really.

The woodsy, earthy scent of this beard oil brings together the solitary notes of nature and craftsmanship. The smell of freshly chopped forest woods move into a dusty carpenter’s workshop, leaving behind the deep leathered richness of a cobbler’s apron. Its very hardy, masculine fragrance works well with the rugged scruff left behind after a lazy summer’s week of no shaving to the full-grown winter’s beard. In addition to smelling great, the oils also help to moisturize surface skin and condition follicles. Can be used as a beard oil or as an oil based cologne. Great for all skin-types.
