Leonis Barbam Barbarossa & Ned Kelly Beard Balm
From Belgium comes this amazing and really neat beard balm (and other products as well, in another review). The Ned Kelly and Barbarossa, and I gotta say, I really like the gold jar for the Barbarossa, it’s a really nice touch! Both of these balms contain Beeswax, Coconut oil, Shea butter, Cocoa butter & Sweet almond oil. A great base to make some outstanding beard balm!
Oh how I love beard balm, I could use beard balm all the time. Not only does it keep my beard where it needs to be, but also makes it bigger, stronger and more healthy. Leonis Barbam beard balm is no exception, as a matter of fact, these balms are on the top on my favorites list. The perfect mix of ingredients really hit the spot as for hold, thickness, application and scent. This is one balm I will order more of when it runs out, it’s that good!
Starting off with Leonis Barbam Ned Kelly beard balm – Ok, I’m up! This, this is good. With a semi soft consistency and perfect hold the Ned Kelly beard balm smells of fantastic and strong citrus, with a hint of some peppermint I think. It’s so crisp that you almost can break the air in half, it’s so fresh that it feels like you just had a shower after you apply it. It smells so good that you almost want to eat it. It comes in a 50 ml/2 oz can!
I’ve tried lots of citrus scented beard products the last few years, seeing as it’s one of the basic scents. But this citrusy and fresh scented beard balm is something else. It’s more powerful, it’s more alive and it’s more citrusy. It’s hard to explain, but you really want more of this. I’m so glad they don’t make edible beard balm, it would bankrupt me… :)
The ingredient list on the Ned Kelly beard balm is: Yellow Beeswax pellets (Cera Flava), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parki), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao), Parfum (Natural essential oils), Maleleuca Alternifolia, Citrus, Piper Negrum, Myristica Fragrens, Prunus Amygdalus (Sweet almond oil).
Leonis Barbam Barbarossa beard balm – You’re killing me here, you know that?! The memories this beard balm sparks is nothing but amazing. With the risk of boring you I will tell you a short story about my childhood. I grew up on a horse farm in the northern parts of Sweden, and I tried to help as much as I could, running around the stable as a kid, caring for the horses and what not. There were one thing that I really enjoyed doing, and that was cleaning the horses hoofs and applying lotion to their calfs. The lotion we used smelled so damn good, fresh, spicy and warm. A real crowdpleaser. Leonis Barbam Barbarossa beard balm smells exactly like that lotion.
Later, when I became a teenager and used to hang out by the local grill and chew gum, looking cool and all, that memory of the lotion hit me again. There was this gum, it tasted exactly as that horse lotion, so good, so sweet and so warm. It was called “Jenka”, and I loved it. Leonis Barbam Barbarossa beard balm smells exactly like that gum tasted!
Later I’ve learned that that scent is almost like root beer, but I can’t confirm as I’ve never tasted root beer, it’s not avaliable in Sweden I think! Anyway, if that’s the case, the Barbarossa beard balm smells kinda like root beer. Tho all I know is that it’s warm, it’s cozy, it’s loving and caring. I feel loved while wearing this and I love it. It almost brings a tear to my eye and I remember the good old days. Thank you Leonis Barbam for this.
