Using Our Products
This page teaches you how to effectively use The Bearded Savant products
Purpose: Beard oil is used to tame the hair on your face. Whether you have a beard, mustache, or goatee, our beard oil will soften your hair, making it more pliable and comfortable. With repeated daily applications your facial hair will be softer and maintain a shine well after it has been absorbed. Our beard oil is easily absorbed by your skin and delivers essential oils that will reduce itchiness, flaking, and inflammation.
Directions: Shake well and pour the desired amount into your hand. Spread it into both palms and finger tips then massage into the skin under your beard. Work from your skin towards the end of your facial hair, distributing the oil along the full thickness of your beard. More may be needed for thicker/longer beards. Can be applied at any time but is most effective after a shower when your beard is damp and your pores are open.
Purpose: Beard Balm is a cross between beard oil and mustache wax. It is a paste and will help control the stray hairs that seem to defy gravity but will not leave it feeling waxy or like you've applied product. It is light, and like our beard oil it contains therapeutic grade essential oils, in addition to shea, cocoa butter, and bee's wax. Beard balm calms the beard while keeping it looking healthy and shiny.
Directions: Scrape the desired amount onto the back of your fingernail and spread onto your palms and fingers. Rub your hands together until fully melted and apply to your beard and skin. If your beard is especially unruly, apply the balm beginning near your ears, wiping towards your chin.
Purpose: Mustache wax is for sculpting. Think of it as hair gel for your mustache. Instead of using chemicals to get your hair to stay in place, we use a mixture of beeswax, Shea butter, and jojoba oil to lock your ‘stache in place. A light application of wax allows you to put your mustache where you want it while keeping it looking ‘untreated’. A heavy dose of wax will allow you to put your mustache wherever you want and in whatever shape you want.
Directions: Start with dry hands. Scrape desired amount from tin and roll into a small ball. Place the ball on your index and middle finger of one hand and rub vigorously between your index and middle finger of your other hand. As the wax warms and melts it will go from white to mostly translucent. Massage into your mustache. Starting just below your nose, push (hard) into your mustache while sliding your fingers along the length of it. For a thicker mustache you may need a larger ball of wax to start, or a second application for the tips. A good mustache comb can help work the wax in as well. If any visible wax remains in your mustache, continue massaging it between your thumb and fingers, working it out towards the tips. Style accordingly.
Purpose: To smell amazing.
Directions: Using one or two fingers, rub in a circular motion on the surface of the cologne. The heat generated will melt a small amount of cologne onto your fingers. Apply to your pulse points (neck and wrists). For a stronger scent, repeat rubbing your fingers across the surface of the cologne once for your neck and again for your wrists.
