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.
It’s worth noting that the Brisk grooming range is paraben and sulphate free. And in addition to the above- the Beard Shampoo and Oil is also available in unfragranced.
