I’m going to go out on a limb. If you’re male member of the MOTUS Tribe, you either currently have a beard or have had a beard in the past. Even if you’re beardless at the moment, it’s a pretty safe bet you’ll be sporting one again in the not too distant future. Either way, when it comes beards, it’s time to up your game with Huckleberry Beard Company.
One thing that always drives me crazy about beards is the growing phase. It’s the itching and the poking, along with the general roughness. It feels like I have a scouring pad glued to my face. So, if I think it’s rough, there is no mystery to the fact that my wife and kids probably thinks it is too. In attempt to combat and tame that roughness, I decided that this year I would look into beard products to see if I could get this mess under control. While I tried a few different products from various brands, I found that they were mostly expensive and ineffective.
Then I discovered that Cory, a fellow member of the MOTUS Tribe, is the founder of Huckleberry Beard Company. I had a long conversation with Cory and found out that he started Huckleberry because he believes in quality products and quality ingredients. This was something I definitely found lacking in the market, so I decided to give his oil and conditioner a try. One other thing to note – Cory is also very adamant about beards. He believes they’re a way to “Bring MANLY back”!
The first product that I tested, Left Hook Beard Oil ($21), is one of the most recent creations. Huckleberry describes Left Hook as, “blends of Cedar, Sandalwood, and Sweet Orange give you a nice subtle warm scent.” I enjoyed the fragrance and so did my family. I found the oil was very effective, and it also seemed to last longer than brands that I tried.
I decided to pair the Left Hook Beard Oil with Huckleberry’s Left Hook Beard Conditioner ($25). Cory had told me this was the ultimate combination. As a swimmer, I spend at least 30 minutes a day in the water. On some days, it can be hours. The harsh, chlorinated water definitely doesn’t help to keeping your beard under control or feeling soft. The combination of the conditioner and the oil definitely helped.
One of the other things I really liked about Huckleberry Beard Company’s website was the advice on maintaining a beard and grooming. This was great considering I usually just stop shaving and let the beard run wild. You can check out the tips on this page and while you’re at it, be sure to check out their blog. They post regular updates about new products and some entertaining articles on keeping your beard under control.
Overall, I have been very pleased with Huckleberry Beard Company’s products and I look forward to trying out more of them in the future. Since this is the time of year for giving, you might want to spread some Huckleberry love to some of your bearded friends who may need a little help in the maintenance department. Their Gunsmoke Beard Oil might be a good place to start.
