For the past 3-4 years I have followed the practice of growing a beard, starting November 1st and then having it shaved off New Years Day. If it were up to me, I would keep it year round, but the wife prefers me sans beard and to be honest, more than 2 months growth and I start to look like the guys from Duck Dynasty or the CEO of TODDLAND.
I have always run into the problem that after a few weeks growth, the beard became hard to manage and it, and the skin underneath need conditioned. This past holiday I was introduced to Mr. Natty Frank’s Beard Elixir and BAM, my problems were solved.
Created across the pond by Mr. Matt Raine, this elixir contains a mixture of various oils like vetiver, patchouli, juniper berry, pine, bergamot, peach kernel and grape seed. It’s application is simple, just apply a few drops to the palms of your hands and massage into your beard. (A little goes a long way, so be careful when applying, unless you want to smell like the local head-shop.)
