*{WIN}* with Beardworxs – R360 Beard Starter Kit

We all know that women feel overwhelmingly passionate about many things.

Their man (or any man for that matter) deciding to grow the fuzz on their face is no exception to this.  In fact, we’re quite opinionated on the topic, which is funny because it’s not our face.  Sometimes it’s not even “our” man.

But yet there it is.  You’ll find women who swoon at the sight of stubble and that have dedicated pinterest boards to facilitate staring at the gorgeous hairy men out there.  Then there are others that want to run away at the thought of trying to find the lips hiding under the hair, or worse, finding other things hiding in there instead.  Taking the saying, “Saving some for later” to the next level.

Personally?  Well I think when you consider Seths current look, you’ll notice I don’t have a problem with it.  In fact I err on the side of swooning whenever I see him – although that may not only be related to the beard.  Besides it really suiting his face, style and all of that, I must say that I like the look of well crafted man hair.  I like it so much that if I wasn’t living the bearded wife life, I may well have my own Pinterest board.

While I enjoy my man on the grizzly side, there are still Do’s And Don’ts Of Beardedness.  You’d think it’s down to just not shaving it, but you’d be wrong…

  • DON’T think you can just leave your chinny chin chin to run wild and free.  That’s never attractive.  Be prepared to look after and maintain your fluff.
  • DO treat your beard the way that you treat the hair on your head or better.  Make sure to wash and condition it but DON’T use regular store bought products.  DO use the Beardworxs Shampoo Bar- made from plant based products which is organic and chemical free. (No surfactants in the shampoo that’ll break down the natural oils in the beard. It just leaves it squeaky clean!)
  • DON’T try a goatee.  A goatee is the mullet of facial hair and shouldn’t even be considered unless you work in the traffic department.  I actually had a good giggle looking at all the various options one can try at the bottom of the Beardworxs site – my one that I love to hate is the Mutton Chops or even better – the Friendly Mutton Chops. Ha ha ha.
  • DO use a mustache comb – it trains the hair to move to the side which helps with styling and keeping your woman happy.
  • DON’T shave all the way up your neck to a perfect line around your jaw.  It doesn’t slim it your face, it just makes you look weird.  Stop it.
  • DO embrace your grey hairs.  DON’T be tempted to reach for the dye.  Also, your hair colour and beard colour won’t necessarily match and that’s OK.  This is especially prevalent with lighter haired individuals, but it’s not all bad news, just think about Sons of Anarchy’s Charlie Hunnam…  Exactly.  No problem at all.

So basically, if you’ve got the gift of fluff, make sure you look after it.

Seth has been growing his beard for over a year now and there was a time when it was bordering on awfulness.  It was crackly and dry and scratchy.  Not fun.  He still looked hot, but the beard didn’t.


But since he’s taken a bit of time to look after it every day it’s made such a difference.  I didn’t think I would ever refer to his beard as being lush, but there you go.  I think it looks lush.  Using the beard oil and beard shampoo have made all the difference.  It’s definitely lost all they dry crackle and split ends that it used to have.  Also, my face is not harassed when we get up close and personal anymore – win-win.

Plus my husband may be a nut, and I love it.

If you don’t want to wait to win and would rather get your hands on your Beardworxs products now, you can find them at Café Barber in Durban, Barnet Fair in Cape Town, Blokes in Cape Town and The Mens Club in Knysna or order through their website.

The three main products are:

  1. Beard oil – Each essential oil is specifically chosen for it’s individual properties like anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. So as to promote or growth and health. Beard oil can be used on the five o’clock shadow to the full epic beard. It’s a natural organic way to keep the skin and hair moisturised and healthy. It prevents things like beard flakes, itchiness and scratchy/hard hair. We have blended the oils in such a way that the scent doesn’t hang on your face all day long like some of the other oils available! There are 3 options available:
    1. Base Oil is made from a blend of argan, jojoba and grapeseed oil.
    2. The Hipster which has a blend of bergamot and pine needle essential oils.
    3. Mountain Man has a blend of eucalyptus, pine needle and sweet orange.
  2. Shampoo Bar – Made from plant based products which is organic and chemical free. (No surfactants in the shampoo that’ll break down the natural oils in the beard. It just leaves it squeaky clean!)
  3. Moustache Wax– made from a blend of a 100% natural bees wax and coconut oil and a secret blend of essential oils. This wax washes clean out with some hot water and doesn’t leave a wax build up. The more you apply the stronger it gets but we have made this wax to make your moustache look natural but keep it out of the kissing zone!

The perfect gift that you can engrave with something personal.

  1. Aaaah! This would be perfect for hubby – he’s never been particularly hectic with his hair (its basically wash and wear – which he does) but he’s become fastidious with the beard grooming. Its still in the early stages, but every now & then I’ve caught him contemplatively stroking his beard : villain style 😛 which is i find weirdly sexy lol. And while as a kid I i was more inclined to crush on the clean cut boybander look, I’ve completely fallen for this hairy manness -but that may just be the dude beneath the beard 😉

  2. Worst style for me is the ‘soul patch’. which is like a miniture version of a goatee – just a tiny tuft of hair beneath the bottom lip reminding one of the sad patch of grass struggling to grow through the paved cement. But maybe that’s just me 😛

  3. It’s lame but my favourite joke of all time is “I moustache you a question… But I’m shaving it for later.” Cracks me up every time. My husband and his giant man/lumberjack beard desperately need this starter kit!

    [P.S. I did all the following and sharing. :)]

  4. Oh my gosh! Zain needs this desperately. Would be awesome to win this for our anniversary. Even if I don’t thanks for the heads up about it!

  5. Shared on twitter @sophiasheikadam and facebook Sophia Junaid. Following both pages 🙂 i simply love the Goat T. I also like it when my hubby keeps his beard short and it looks rugged. Sexy indeed 🙂

  6. My boyfriend has a beautiful glossy beard going, and the best is when it’s nicely conditioned and all springy and soft!
    He tries to get to Yogi’s as frequently as possible to keep his face-fro nice and neat, and I’d like to win this for him – just so he knows I appreciate the effort he goes to to look good for me 😉

  7. In the words of some ladies (and men too) My Beard is majestic as hell. I once was a little boy, who dreamed of growing a beard on day, over the years I have gone through the terrible goatie to chin strap, 2 years been growing the full beard, all year round, because manliness is not seasonal.

  8. so im starting out with my beard and its going pretty well….. I find myself trying to groom it all the time, so much so that I walked into the bathroom only to find my 1 year old son trying to groom his face with moms eye pencil drawing a beard and combing it my so called beard comb…. would love this starter kit as I plan to take over the world one hair strand at a time.

  9. rehana seedat email: dseedat@telkomsa.net Sharing a Hairy Joke:A large woman, wearing a sleeveless sun dress, walked into a bar in London.
    She raised her right arm, revealing a huge, hairy armpit as she pointed to all the people sitting at the bar and asked,
    “What man here will buy a lady a drink?”
    The bar went silent as the patrons tried to ignore her. But down at the end of the bar, an owly-eyed drunk slammed his hand down on the counter and bellowed,
    “Give the Ballerina a drink!”
    The bartender poured the drink and the woman chugged it down in one. She turned to the patrons and again pointed around at all of them, revealing the same hairy armpit, and asked,
    “What man here will buy a lady a drink?”
    Once again, the same little drunk slapped his money down on the bar and boomed,
    “Give the Ballerina another drink!”
    The bartender approached the little drunk and said, “I say, old chap, it’s your business if you want to buy the lady a drink, but why do you keep calling more…

  12. Following Beardworxs on Facebook. Following 3 Kids, 2 Dogs and 1 Old House on Facebook. I am in a relationship with my husband and his beard, we’re now a family of 4. And you know what I’m quite okay with sharing a bed with his fury friend, I just draw the line when it comes to my brush!

  13. Forgot to add when first commented – already following on all platforms; now following Beardworx on all & shared this on all platforms yesterday when first commented 🙂

  14. My hubby keeps a beard for religious reasons, I haven’t always liked it but it’s grown on me. He makes sure to keep it looking good, it’s viciously curly so he blow dries it every day before work so it stays neat!

    My funny story, we have a 3 month old and last weekend at the park we were playing with her and our 2 year old when she let loose a huge vomit. Hubby happened to be holding her above his head talking to her so the vomit landed in his beard, lol, and stuck there looking like semen (I suppose it could have been worse, it could have landed in his mouth!) while we scrambled looking for a burp cloth to wipe it off.

  15. I Love My Boyfriends Beard. If I Wanted To Date Someone Bare Faced, I Would Have Dated A Woman. His Beard Doesn’t Make Him Hot In Summer, It Makes Him Hot All Year Long. 😉 I Think My Boyfriend Would Appreciate This As A Gift For His Birthday. ♡
