Review: BEMO Premium Beard Oil

Reviewing BEMO premium beard oil

I love getting the opportunity to try products out and review them but, in this instance, I thought it might be more advisable to let Anthony try it out. And, as he was trying it out, he might as well write the review as well. Here's what he had to say about it:

I've never tried beard oil, though I've had a beard for over half a decade and I've been a pretentious git for almost three. So, when my darling fiancee presented me with a bottle of BEMO Premium Beard Oil to review, my interest was definitely piqued.

After trimming my facial follicles to a manageable length - I was beginning to look like a taller version of Gimli - I put the oil to the test. At first I wasn't too sold on the scent, a combination of grape seed oil, crambe seed oil, almond oil, castor oil and aloe vera extract. But, after a week's worth of use, it has grown on me.

It puts me in mind of the Carlton Club in London; that ingrained smell of rich oils and foreign fragrances that somehow gives way to visions of oxblood armchairs wreathed in cigar smoke. A far cry from the image I had previously associated with oiled face fuzz: the Dick Dastardly-esque moustache-twirling villain!

Looking at the packaging, I was half expecting to find the words 'By Royal Appointment' engraved on the bottle.

The oil itself was very easy to apply, thanks to the bottle's practical and elegant pump design. My only quibble is that the oil, as the name suggests, is rather oily. After use I did find myself having to wash my hands three or four times before the greasiness was completely gone. But, that said, my beard is definitely feeling softer and looking more luxurious.

But, then, I suppose I'm worth it.

There we have it, Anthony's verdict of BEMO premium beard oil. I agree that the packaging is really impressive - if you're struggling to think of a Valentine's gift for a bearded loved one, this might be just the ticket. I really liked the smell, right from the beginning, and the beard's overall appearance has been much improved through this extra care and attention. Let's hope Anthony sticks with it! :) 

To try BEMO Premium Beard Oil for yourself, it's available from Amazon for £15.95.

  5. I love how you've delegated the whole post to your OH, sounds fair enough to me - but the most telling part of the review is that you like the smell of it, that I'm sure will be of great help to other potential buyers. Thanks for linking up to #PoCoLo

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
