When I was first contacted by Bluebeards Original to review their products for Beardsman, I remember being very skeptical of a “beard shampoo and condition”. It seemed almost hokey, and to be a cheap marketing tactic. Needless to say I kind of had it out for them from the get go, but I was very interested to see and more importantly feel the difference.
The thing that I was most skeptical about was the “Beard Wash” shampoo. I don’t by any means have a brutal beard, but it does pose some of the usual problems including tangles, rough texture, and the inevitable shedding. After the first several days I noticed a pretty big difference in the texture and especially the cleanliness of my beard. The smell is a faint natural lime scent that truly is wonderful and I’m sure to be a positive change for the cuddle buddy in your life. My girlfriend loves it.
Bluebeards Original advertises that the Beard Wash is less harsh than other, more chemical based shampoos for your head hair. Their all natural ingredients maintain a great clean without those chemicals leaving not just your beard, but your face feeling very clean.
The only real “cons” of the product is the miniature size bottle that it comes in, even though, your only really needing about a nickel sized squirt to get the job done.
Next to try out was the “Beard Saver”. Made with the same natural ingredients and lime scent of the Beard Wash, the Beard Saver leave-in conditioner is really an awesome product. Right after the first application I noticed a drastic physical change in my beards texture. It made my beard have a soft, more “hair-like” feel. Combing through my beard with the Beard Saver in it made for fewer tangles. After about a week of daily applications I noticed that my beard was starting to shed a lot less as well. The overall feel was just a healthy and vibrant man-scape. I was genuinely surprised by the product and have been recommending it to close friends who have way more gnarly beards than I do to try it out. It’s worth it.
Bluebeards Original Duo is $36.00
Beard Wash alone is $14.00
Beard Saver alone is $24.00
As a cheap dude that’s not a great price, but it is a fair amount of product for the price. I have been using both products almost every day for over a month and have about 50% of it left. Being made in the USA and from all natural products it’s a reasonable price for a higher end hair care product.
Bottom Line: This is a solid product that I recommend for the pros or for the everyday beard wearer. It made my beard feel awesome, look fuller, and smell amazing.

The Bay of Beards website is finally up, and is always being updated. Check it out here. I hope you like it can make it out. The contest will be on May 1st 2010 at the Dunedin Brewery. Should be great this year.
Thats all for now,
Plans for the $5000 BTUSA National Beard and Moustache
Championships in Bend, Oregon on June 5 are well underway.
Online registration for the Nationals is now available!
Just go to http://beardteamusa.org/nationals for everything
you need to know. Registration for competitors is $40, which
gets you into the competition, two chances to win $1000 (one for
winning your category and another in the drawing), and free beer
during the event.
Before you register, be sure to check out the options available for
activities on Friday, June 4. When you register, you can sign up for a
choice of mountain biking, brewery hopping, canoeing, cave exploring, or
rafting. All of the activities have limited availability so be sure to sign
up soon. Click here for more information about the activities.
Also, note that there are three choices for lodging. The upscale Mt.
Bachelor Village Resort offer rooms and condos for a range for prices. Most
people will stay at the mid-range Phoenix Inn, which is offering suites to
our group for a rate of $109 per night. The budget option is at the Super 8
Motel with rooms for about $70.
If you stay at the Mt. Bachelor Village or at the Super 8, you will probably
want to have a car. If you are at the Phoenix Inn, you won't need one,
since the Phoenix Inn is right downtown.
Another Huge Announcement
Two-time World Beard Champion (Full Beard Natural) and noted beard book author
Jack Passion will not be competing. Jack is going to step aside and
give others with full beards a shot at the $1000. Instead, he will be the
onstage host of the competition.
Be sure to check beardteamusa.org for the latest information.
See you in Bend!
