Ive never been one to have a full on beauty routine (can men say this???!!) ; more so because I didn’t think it was masculine to be moisturising after a wash. Since having a beard I have always used a beard oil but i’ve never been one to use any other products on my skin, ie scrubs or moisturiser.I should as I do suffer from dry skin from time to time and doing my current job I often rock up home absolutely filthy.
I have used many brands of oils for my beard and I am yet to find one that doesn’t leave it feeling greasy. So when I was approached by Admiral products. to test out some of their products I was eager to use the beard oil first.
Like I said before I have never been one to use skin products, but Admiral kindly sent a facial scrub to try too. I used it on the first day I received it and what can I say….I am a converted man. The exfoliating face scrub has bits in the cream and leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh.
The beard shampoo is what I was looking forward to using the most. It seems that nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry have a beard. But not everyone seems to take good care of them. Nothing worse that the beard being very coarse and the skin becoming irritated underneath.
Admiral beard shampoo is a good cleanser and smells pretty good too. You only need to use a small amount, as it lathers up and goes a long way. I tend to leave it on for at least a few minutes and giving the beard a good scrub in the shower. Once dried off its time to oil up, use as much as you need depending on the length of your beard. I use about a pea size amount for me and rub it all in using your fingers; getting it all the way to your skin. I leave it to soak in then apply the beard balm for an extra silky look.
Overall I am very impressed with the products. I have used them for around 3 weeks now and I can certainly see the difference in both my skin and facial hair. I will definitely be continuing to use them until I need to buy more.
These would also make a brilliant gift for fathers day too, as they have gift sets as well as selling the individual products. The good news is, the kind people at Admiral have given me a discount code just for my readers to use to save some £££. A whopping 25% off – GO GO GO!
