My Nightly Beard Routine using Sky Organics

Are you doing what it takes at night to nourish your beard properly?

I have a lot of guys asking me what do I do at night with my beard. This can be a very tricky answer.

I'll start by saying, every beard is different in shape, size, and texture. So, what may be good for me might not be good for you.

My nightly routine is a three step process. It includes oils, butter and balm. This is something I've been doing for over a year or so, and for me the results are awesome! 

The beard oil that I use is a combination of 100% Castor Oil, Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil. All of the oils are from the same company, Sky Organics. I've learned that their oils work best with my skin and hair. 



The butter I use is also from Sky Organics. Sky Organics Mango Butter is excellent for nourishing your skin. It gives your skin that healthy look that we all want; At the same time it keeps you hair soft and manageable.

The balm that I use varies simply because I have a huge assortment to choose from. The biggest reason I'm using the balm is for styling and sealing purposes. 
I prefer a nice smelling balm, and it has to be lightweight. I don't want my beard to be weighed down...that's just me being me.

How I apply the products:
Once I finish showering and my beard is damp I apply the oil, then the mango butter, and lastly, the balm. I comb my beard how I normally do (with a large tooth comb or pick) and that's all folks.

The following morning my beard is still moisturized and soft. The main goal for your beard and it's routine is for you to be as consistent as possible.

This is my current, nightly beard routine. If anything changes with my nightly beard routine I'll be sure to come back an fill you guys in. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. PEACE!

Dr. Goat's Beard Lotion Review

Are you looking for a awesome alternative to beard oils-while getting the same benefits for your beard and skin? Well, today I'll be telling you about a beard lotion that does just that.


Dr. Goat Beard Lotion is exactly what is sounds like, a lotion for your beard. Its provides the same benefits as a regular body lotion except, it's formulated for your beard and skin.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the container was the aroma of rosemary and peppermint. The scent was very pleasant, not overbearing at all.

The Beard Lotion is a great moisturizer. I noticed less itching and dryness from my beard. My beard was more manageable and I've noticed less shedding. This lotion keeps your beard hydrated throughout the day. Applying the lotion twice is recommended at a dime or nickle size amount depending on the thickness of your beard.


I would recommend this product over and over again. For the gentleman that don't like using so many different products this product maybe perfect for you. Did I mention it's a natural product? Ingredients include: Coconut Oil, & Shea Butter, among other natural ingredients listed on the container.

Guys, if you would like to purchase some of Dr. Goats products please visit him at www.drgoatbfc.com. You will find all your beard and skin care needs there. Stay Bearded!

Strongback Beard Oil | Cutlass Review

Hey guys today I'm gonna be sharing my thoughts with you today about Cutlass Beard Oil.



We all know the importance of using a beard oil, I'm always eager to review beard oils simply because there are so many oils out there to choose from.
I often get asked what is the best beard oil to use. I gave that question a lot of thought and to be honest there is not a good or bad oil. You have to find what works for you. Some oils are heavier than others, some absorb quicker than others, some smell great and others don't... you get the point.

Cutlass sent me a their Strongback Beard Oil. This oil is very nice. The fragrance was on point and the texture it had a great feel when it came to the thickness of the oil.
Strongback is the newest scent from Cutlass when I opened up the bottle I immediately smelled hints of peppermint also a cedar wood aroma with a hint of citrus. I couldn't wait to apply this oil to my beard.

The Strongback scent also had some awesome ingredients such as Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Tea Tree oil and more.
To lightly coat a beard my size it took about 6 drops of the oil. The oils all worked very well together. Through out my day I didn't have any itching and my beard looked healthy with a pleasant sheen all day. I will absolutely purchase the oil again. It works like a oil and moisturizer all in one bottle.

You guys can check out Cutlass by Pesanteur on Instagram @getcutlass and on their website www.getcutlass.com. It was a joy to share this info with my bearded brothers and I hope you find this very helpful.

Have a great day and many blessings.

SheaMoisture Men's Maracuja and Shea Oils Beard Products

Today is a really good day for a guy with a beard. One of the top companies in the hair care market has formulated four extremely awesome products for our beards. The beard wash, detangler, beard oil, and the beard balm.


Let me start by saying of these products are free of  Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, Sulfates, and Animal Testing. The Beard Wash is clear and has a thick, rich consistency. I have used the wash several times and I'll be the first to say its fantastic. It took a little over a dime sized amount to cover a beard like mine. It lathered nicely and smells great. The wash didn't strip my beard at all, it left my beard feeling soft and manageable. I would totally recommend this product to you guys to check out.  

For you guys that have a hard time combing through your beard, Shea Moisture has the solution. The Beard Detangler is a dream product. I use this product two different ways because it works like a leave conditioner as well. The first way I use it is right after I wash my beard. I leave the beard damp and the apply the detangler. Your beard will automatically soften as it becomes more easy to comb. The second way is when your on go and really don't wanna use a heavy product you can apply the detangler as a "Leave In" and your ready to go. It doesn't leave a film over your beard and it's very fluffy and Santa-Like.....trust me, the ladies love it!

The Beard Oil is the heavier side and coats the beard nicely. However, the oil isn't as greasy as most beard oils I've used in the past. I noticed less beard itch that is a huge plus. Overall, this oil moisturizes and softens the beard while adding a little sheen.

The last product I'm gonna talk about is the Beard Balm. When I first opened up this product I was thinking it wasn't gonna be a good product because it looked brittle and cracked up in pieces. I had never seen a beard balm look like that before! Once I rubbed through the balm it felt soft but not as soft as others. I was actually thinking of whipping it myself to make more creamy. I even thought I mistankingly bought a bad bottle. To my surprise, even though it looked a little rough, the balm still performed very well. It shaped my beard very nicely, also giving it great definition. Throughout the day my beard smelled great and was very moisturized and healthy looking. 

My all around score on the Shea Moisture Maracuja Beard Products is 10 out of 10. Not often does a company make a complete line of products and all of them work well. 

The tips I would give for shopping this line are:
1. Shop for the beard that you have. Meaning shorter beards would benefit more from using oils. While bigger beards can used oils and balms. 
2. Don't feel like you have to get all four products. 
I would say the must haves are the Beard Wash, Beard Detangler, and your choice of Oil or Balm.
