This was my very first beard product purchase and now after about 2 months of using it, I can finally give my thoughts about it.
I love it and I would recommend this to anyone. Just try to pay good attention to what smells you are choosing.
My starter pack contained:
>Boar bristle brush
>Spearmint beard shampoo
>"Dragon Blood" beard oil
>"Dragon Blood" beard balm
1. Boar bristle brush.
The brush is sturdy and is doing a great job at taking care of my beard hair.
I must admit, though, that I was not sure what kind of hardness the bristles would be so I was surprised when it arrived. It is definitely not a brush that you want to brush your skin with. However, that is an intentional design choice and therefore there are no qualms.
Obviously, I cannot be objective about the rest of the products but I'll still give my thoughts and feelings.
2. Spearmint beard shampoo
I am not the greatest fan of smells but the spearmint is a very nice refreshing smell in the shower. It does not stay for very long so it is definitely not overpowering in any sense, which I love.
The main function of a shampoo is how well it washes the hair and I must admit that this shampoo is doing a great job. However, one thing to keep in mind is that you definitely do not want to skip applying beard oil and/or other products after using this. My beard after washing it with the shampoo gets pretty dry. I am not sure though if it is my body or why.
Another good thing about this shampoo is that it lathers very easily and so you don't need a lot of it and it will last you a long while.
3/4. "Dragon Blood" beard oil/balm
By now I have tried few other beard oils, also from Ferocious beard company. As an oil this beard oil functions just like all others. What I can comment on though, is that this is a strong smell. It is a fairly strong, primarily clove, fragrance. And because of the nature of this fragrance, "Dragon Blood" energizes the body a lot.
To me personally that is not preferable and I don't particularly want to be wearing this smell all the time. It is a nice option from time to time but this is precisely why I went and bought beard oils with some other softer smells.
I still use this smell from time to time.
The balm works as expected from a balm. It moisturizes my beard well and with the beeswax included in the balm, helps to slightly shape my beard.
I am more than satisfied with choosing to buy beard products on Ferocious Beard. Not only did they provide a simple pack in 1 purchase (which is surprisingly rare in almost all of the beard product company shops) but the quality that I've received far surpassed my expectations.
Even though, I personally did not like some products as much as possible, that is only because of my own personal taste and in no shape or form does it show the lack of care put into these products by Ferocious Beard.
