With the beard trend showing little sign of slowing we have seen a plethora of beard care brands arrive to market. In honesty, most are poor- be it average branding, weak formulations, non-performance, expensive and or over-fragranced. As ever- ticking all of these boxes is a tricky task, however Brisk Beard Care appear to have their finger on the pulse.

A dedicated beard care brand, their branding is strong, with high quality formulations leading to strong performance, and each product is remarkably inexpensive. And personally, I’m a big fan of their subtle choice of fragrance- and for those who require it, there is an unfraganced version. After-all, I don’t want something overly potent sitting right under my nose or worse interfering with my £185 bottle of Noir Epices by Frederic Malle.

We trialled the Brisk Tea Tree & Cedarwood Beard Shampoo £4.99/ 150ml- made with a refreshing combination of Tea Tree and Cedarwood essential oils. The shampoo provided a thorough-feeling cleansing action and crucially didn’t strip the skin and hair of moisture. Our beard hair was left feeling clean, manageable and soft.

Next up were the super-refreshing Brisk Citrus Beard Oil and Brisk Tea Tree Beard Oil both £6.99/ 50ml. Brisk make their Beard Oil with natural oil and combine nourishing almond, avocado, argan and jojoba oils for a non-greasy, ultra-light formula which is quickly absorbed. Just smooth a couple of drops of beard oil through your beard hair for hydrated skin and soft hair.
