There's a "Beardolution" coming "After Dark"
Updated: Dec 27, 2020
Beardolution has crept upon us and has taken the UK small batch beard sector by storm. Fastly becoming a cult classic but if their growth continues, then they will soon be a true force to be reckoned with. Bringing a unique style which is very reminiscent to a circus of horrors however instead of going down the dark theme it's actually all very vibrant creating powerful contrasts between the black / white drawing and the colour pallet which creates real stand our characters.
I managed to get my hands on "After Dark" beard butter. Whipped together is a combination of Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Kokum Butter, Castor Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and 100% Natural Essential Oil Blend. The blend creates a fantastic base which is aimed to soothe and nourish a beard by locking in goodness whilsts it sits within your beard during the night.
The butter has been whipped to perfection leaving an extremely smooth consistency. As you remove the product from the pot you can actaully hear pockets of air popping as you squish the product together which is oddly satisfying. Rub the product together and its surprisingly thick considering its softness however melts instantaneously into your palms. Applying to your beard / skin and it can be rubbed though with ease however finishing it off with a comb through gives you the final touch. The immediate scent released is the combo of Lavender, Ylang Ylang and a very soft hint of zesty citrus Orange. The lavender type scent never falls from the profile however it morphs from a powerhouse into a soft, mellow and laid back aroma with slightly earthy tones drawn from the cedarwood as if its maturing with time. It's a fantastic product to apply just before bed to help ease the daily worries, and aiding to shift troublesome thoughts.
Beardolution provide something stunning and a true definition of a bed time butter. Whilst the scent profile of After Dark is nothing extravagant, it shows how important it is to understand the fundamentals to elevate a product. I can't wait to get my hands on other products and I hope that they can continue with a few unorthodox profiles which creates the start of "The Beardolution"
