Opening Comments

united beard logoThis specimen comes to us all the way from Perth, Western Australia.

The product is hand-crafted by artisan Peter Lovell – founder of the United Beard Co- and the company logo is an old fashioned postage stamp containing an image of the “bearded lady”.

My interest was peaked!

Let’s see how the specimen fares as I put it through the trials of the beard oil review methodology!

Lingerability

Lingerability of this oil was promising. The initial onslaught of scent was strongly apparent for around 45 minutes, with subsequent “bursts” of aroma (presumably) being released from my beard intermittently for around another 30 minutes thereafter.

70% Above average

Emanation

Again, this oil scored in the expected range for a typical beard oil. Aroma was clearly detectable within a foot of my beard. Moving out of the benchmark 1 foot range caused the odor to be completely undetectable to the third party nostrils.

50% Average

Emotional Response

There was a strong emotional response to the application of this beard oil.

The fragrance of this oil is reminiscent of the spicy tang of coconut plantations; yet to be discovered lands and hardy wenches cooking sweet potatoes over the open fire. I felt an intense physical sensation of testosterone surging through my body, an overwhelming feeling of muscular strength and an undeniable desire to conquer and explore the Australia of 1787. I was a matter of inches away from roughly holding the bearded lady in place with my left hand and casually throttling a rabid hyena with my right.

This intense high lasted for around 12 seconds before I returned to baseline. Pleasant lingering overtones of the high lastly for a few more minutes before I was completely back to ground zero.

85% Decent stuff

Greasiness

The Lumberjack Oil got off to a cracking start, sliding down the glass board at a rate of knots, however after about 32% of the way down, it rapidly slowed and ended up completing the race in a sub-par 83 seconds – indicating a thicker than average oil.

However, this also needs to be balanced with anecdotal evidence. This oil does not feel like an particularly greasy beard oil. However, it is not a thin oil by any stretch of the imagination.

50% Average

Hair Impact

As with many oils, the blu-tac test did not yield any discernible results. This puts to bed any notion of a scientifically measurable increase in hair softness as a result of this oil.

I do however have to say that my beard hair did feel wonderfully smooth after the application of the oil and beautifully lustrous.

This is the benefit of an oil with a significant argan base.

I am still waiting for that beard oil that will genuinely soften my beard hairs and score a result on the blu-tac test, so for now I will give the Lumberjack Oil:

70% Reasonable.

Skin Impact

I didn’t notice any significant difference in skin smoothness between control and post application smoothness tests as a result of applying the Lumberjack Oil.

However – in fairness – this product does deliver the results that one would expect from a Argan oil based recipe.

50% Middle of the road

Value

This beard oil costs $15 (AUD) for 30ml and $7.45 for P&P. Combined total is therefore $22.45, equating to $0.75 per ml. This is without a doubt above average value and significantly cheaper than the benchmark price of $1 per ml.

Based on the benchmark defined in the Beard Oil Review Methodology, I am therefore scoring the Lumberjack:

70% Excellent!

Overall

So, overall, based on the equally weighted factoring of the above criteria, the Lumberjack Oil by United Beard Co scores a:
80%
A pleasing package that is good value for money with a wonderful pirate-like vibe. Recommended.
