Kent Brushes Beard Brush
Beards are back, which is why after a 100-year hiatus, the Kent Brushes Beard Brush (RRP £20) is making a triumphant return. The beech wood handled brush has been designed with comfort in mind, with a perfectly shaped angled brush and bristles cut into an ergonomic wedge to make grooming both simple and enjoyable. Whether your beard's thin or thick, the soft brush bristles will glide through your beard with ease to keep your beard looking its best.
The brush comes in a cool retro raw cardboard box with illustrations by Icelandic artist André Visage and there's a cotton drawstring pouch to keep your brush protected when you're on the go.
Alchemy Oils Peppermint Beard Remedy
British brand Alchemy Oils has created the all-natural Peppermint Beard Remedy (RRP £21, 40ml), which will promote growth, plus soften and tame even the most unruly beards.
The potent blend of five natural oils including argan, coconut and avocado (which work in sync to condition and hydrate), plus rosehip (to improve skin condition) and peppermint oil (to promote hair growth by improving blood circulation, which increases the supply of oxygen to help that beard become nice and thick).
The beard oils comes in an attractive bottle and although it lacks a pipette, which other brands offer, its consistency makes it easy to apply. Once applied, the appealing minty fragrance is very soothing on the skin and my beard. The long-lasting scent helps to keep your beard smelling fresh all day long, something I didn't think of before, but it's a nice touch!
