I would describe this oil between a light and a thick oil, more on the thick end. As you know I’m a huge fan of thick oils, they tend to absorb into the beard better, and it feels smoother in your palm. I would like this oil to be just a little thicker to completely satisfy my beardy needs. For this reason:
Before I even opened the package I could smell the aromas escaping. I was worried this was going to be the early signs of a cheap runny oil that tries to make up for it with an abundance of essential oils. Boy was I wrong!
Hairyface sent me three sample oils to try. Inferno, Hydra, and Timeless. I am reviewing “Timeless” today as it was my favourite scent of the three.
If you’re putting this oil in your beard, you can put your cologne down for the day boys. This is another rare gem that smells so good you won’t need to wear a cologne.
It’s a warm tamed fragrance right out of the bottle, a scent that remains once it has absorbed into your beard.
What ingredients make up this magnificent scent? According to their website: “All our beard oils are made with almond oil, jojoba oil, castor oil and avocado oil”. Wait a second… aren’t these all mostly odorless carrier oils? Indeed they are! All this means is hairyface just isn’t as open to releasing all the ingredients used in their products.
I can’t even begin to guess what specific scent stands out. It’s not citrusy, it’s not musky, it’s not woodsy, it doesn’t smell of flowers. It just plain smells fantastic. It’s what your significant other wants you to smell like alright? Its the best I can do to describe this one!
Update: Ingredients have been updated on their website. Top notes of; lemon, lime and a splash of orange, middle-notes of cardamom, rosemary, lily of the valley, jasmine, and base-notes of amber, white musk, fir, oak-moss and rosewood. Interesting how these scents blend considering what I posted in the last paragraph. Rating stays the same.
For this reason,
Price – bang for your buck.
The price for this one is $22. This is a Canadian company, shipping to my address in Canada is $14.95.
That’s the same amount I pay for shipping from similar non-amazon fulfillment brands from the states. I was hoping shipping would be less within Canada.
I also wasn’t able to locate a size for their bottle. Is it 0.6oz or 1.0oz? Their website does not say. I asked for sample sizes for this review so I can’t tell you either!
I will reach out to Hairyface and see what they can do about these concerns, and I will update my rating accordingly. For now I’m considering all the positive things I said about this product when I say,
Update: Hairy Face has updated their website. The size of the bottles are now showing as 1oz and they are working on lowering the cost of shipping. If the cost of shipping bothers you, I will recommend what I always do – Purchase more products all at once so you get a better bang for buck. – New rating:
Overall Rating: 9.5/10
I would absolutely recommend purchasing this product to anyone. The quality is right up there with some of the best. I can’t say enough about how great it smells. I have some questions about pricing, but I’m sure those will be answered soon, their website updated, and I will happily update my rating.
