A little over a week ago I ordered Pugilist Brand’s Beard Oil Flyweight Sampler Pack. It contains:
- Buccaneer Blend beard oil sample
- Cedar Atlas Shrugged beard oil sample
- Citrus Grove beard oil sample
- Frontiersman beard oil sample
- Zen Musk beard oil sample
- $3 off coupon for your next purchase of a full-size, 1 ounce beard oil
This retails for $8 with a couple bucks for shipping. I’m not sure on the size of the sample bottles, but you should get at least a couple applications per bottle as long as your beard is less than 5-6″ long. My beard is a about 5 months old at the moment and 4″ long. I didn’t fall in love with any of the scents, but I still dig what Pugilist Brand is doing and here is why.
There was a slight hiccup with my order when it arrived, and like any social media user I contacted Pugilist Brand through Twitter. They responded immediately, most of my order was refunded, and for that reason I’m calling this a sponsored review. Too many times I’ve tried to contact a company for good or bad reasons and have been stonewalled or treated poorly. Pugilist Brand knows how to treat their customers, and welcomes feedback.
I love that they offered a sample pack I could try to see if I liked their products. I’m picky about how things smell. I’m also not really into cologne/scents/fragrances, so I’d hate to spend $15-$30 on an entire ounce of beard oil to find out I really can’t use it. If you’re like me, be sure to check out return policies if you’re leery of spending the cash not really knowing what it’s going to be like. For $8 you can try all five of their beard oils and get at least 10-14 days use out of the samples.
Pugilist Brand also has many sets and combinations of their products for beard enthusiasts at discounted prices. If you want to buy multiple beard oils, or combine oil with soap, pomade, mustache wax, etc; their is most likely an option for you that coincides with your budget.
If you look at how they make their beard oil, it contains the usual suspects: almond, jojoba, argan, and castor. I would have to say Pugilist Brand’s beard oil was probably the most lightweight I’ve used so far. I felt like I needed to use slightly more for an application than oils I’ve used from other companies, but that might be what you’re looking for in an oil. Comparatively, this beard oil goes for $19 an ounce while Beard Brand and Beard Baron sells for $25. So even if you’re using slightly more, it does cost less. I did not notice any real difference in the condition of my beard while trying out Pugilist Brand’s compared to other oils I’ve been using.
Here are a couple pictures. I always like to compare customer pictures to what companies post on their web sites. For starters, they have an awesome rubber stamp they slap on their envelopes.
Here are what the samples look like. That is their business card for size reference.
As I mentioned above, I didn’t love any of the scents, but that doesn’t mean you won’t. I’d love to know what others think of Pugilist Brand, especially compared to other similar beard products.
