Brooklyn Botany Beard Balm Review



Do you need ideas for stocking stuffers for the men in your life? (I should mention, the bearded ones?) Brooklyn Botany Beard Balm comes in a pocket sized tin that contains essential oils and shea butter to soften and tame unruly beard / mustache hair. This handy product deodorizes, cleans, and softens coarse facial hair. This balm makes for a frizz-free beard and/or mustache using all-natural, botanical-rich ingredients.

I was sent this balm complimentary for my honest opinions and review.  

Ingredients:

Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Sesame OIl, Olive Oil, Bees Wax, Glycerin, Proprietary Natural Fragrance, Vitamin E

Directions:

With clean hands, massage a pea-sized amount of balm between fingers. Work balm into beard and stache strands, creating any desired look. Apply as often as needed.

This balm does contain fragrance and I would have preferred this to not have its scent from a unknown source.  It mentions "Proprietary Natural Fragrance" in the ingredients.  I prefer products scented from botanical and essential oils.  I found the scent to have a powdery undertone, which is not bad, it is just a strong scent.  

I like that this balm contains Moroccan Argan Oil, Sesame Oil, Olive Oil and shea butter. These ingredients help soften, condition, and nourish hair follicles, and can encourage new growth.

I find that the fragrance is a bit overpowering for my and my husband's liking.  I like the scent overall, as it has a slight baby powder scent with a hint of floral, but think it is a bit strong for facial use.  I am using this for my eyebrows before makeup application with my brow filler (only a tiny amount of balm is needed) and he applies balm to his beard.  I find this works best for me at night before bed to encourage eye brow growth.  I am trying to thicken my brows as I prefer the old hollywood look.  If I use this balm for day, I apply it with a light hand, and allow it to fully soak into my skin and hairs (while doing other makeup application), brush through with an eyebrow comb, and then apply my brow filler/powder of choice.
