Septembeard | Grüum + Giveaway

17:08:00

My first review in a while and the first in this year's Septembeard (nothing like leaving it to the last minute when there's only 3 days left in the month)



This time, I'm looking at Grüum. I've reviewed my fair share of grooming products in the 4 years I've been running rogues+brogues through purchasing or via outreach from the company. Grüum arrived to me by accident. While many of my fellow male bloggers have reviewed the company after being sent samples, I wasn't on that PR list but by chance, the better half won a 6 months' supply and I've been introducing them into my grooming routine.

I've been using the products for a few months but held off writing a review until now as I thought it fitted better with the seasonal theme of Septembeard.


Included in the kit were the following bits and pieces
  • Leif beard
  • Bård beard wash
  • Kåre daily moisturiser
  • Kóri exfoliating wash
  • Tor beard wax

The beard wash and exfoliating wash live in my shower. I use them on alternating days and sometimes if I'm feeling the need of a boost, I'll apply them to my Remington Recharge Brush and really get stuck in. The refreshing combination of citrus, eucalyptus and rosemary is light and zingy, a great wakeup start in the morning. 


The moisturiser is a light and easily absorbed mixture. The slightly soapy scent of natural rosemary smells clean and fresh all day and the cedarwood base note adds a distinct masculine profile.



Although I'm a solid beard wearer, I don't go in for shaping or styling it too much. I keep it under control with a combination of beard trimmer, Philips OneBlade and barbers thinning scissors. As such, I've never used the beard wax. Designed to keep your beard in shape, I play with my beard too much during the day and work it all off. I prefer to use beard oil when I'm just out of a morning shower. I apply it while my beard is still warm and just towel dried as it helps the oil to be absorbed into the hair. It makes a great alternative to a cologne and keeps your hair from looking too dry and brushy.

Head over to my Twitter and simply RT and follow myself, Caelan and Grüum to be enter.
