Years have passed since that time and I’ve routinely grown my beard out as long as I could until I couldn’t stand it anymore, then I’d shave and start all over. But starting in 2018, I’ve gained a new appreciation and desire for the truth that I’ve reached out to Seven Potions for help. My newfound desire stems from the fact that I’m getting married in the spring and I refuse to be clean-shaven in my wedding photos. Why, you might ask… well, because some people, like myself, are not in love with their natural, hair-less face. And I am one of those people.
Seven Potions is a UK based company that specializes in premium grooming products and botanicals for men, with the essential aim to assist beard health and growth with oils, balms, waxes, and other things. They sent me their Beard Grooming Set, which included their Woodland Harmony (a sweet sandalwood and cedarwood scent) beard oil, beard shampoo and beard brush. For starters, the shampoo is meant to keep your beard clean, of course, which is very important for new growers who want optimum growth, because a dirty beard means unhealthy hairs and blocked follicles.
The beard oil is a velvety mixture of apricot kernel oil, crambe seed oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, vitamin E, and essential oils for a natural and inviting fragrance. The beard oil conditions the hair while soothing itch and moisturizing the skin underneath. A dry beard is a crispy beard, and a crunchy beard is a major no go. Last, their brush, which is my favorite part of this collection, because it works so damn well. Not only does their brush, made of boar bristles with a pear wood body, work wonders on shape and the taming of the wild hairs, but it also stimulates the hair follicles which help inspire new growth, while it soothes the new beard itch. All in all, I really like Seven Potions products, and having not found anything negative or constructive to offer, I can only say that I recommend what they’ve got going on. And now after a month of testing, I’ve noticed an improvement in how my beard looks. Big thanks to Seven Potions.
