I am unsure how effective this review will be but I will give it my best shot. Being Active Duty military, I haven't had much of a chance to grow a beard except when on leave. Recently however, I got approved for a religious accommodation waiver and can grow up to a 2 inch beard from the bottom of my chin. I personally have never used beard oil before....ever. I did some reflecting once my waiver got approved and remembered I would be really really itchy somewhere in the 7-14 day mark. I knew something had to be done. I kept seeing ads pop up for this brand and thought, why not? I knew going into this commitment of my religious beard, I would need to take care of it and keep it professional (per the Reg). So I got the Valhalla oil and have been applying it up to 2 times a day with 2-3 squirts (giggity) on my face, really focusing on rubbing it down to my skin to keep my face moisturized. When I ordered it and started using this product, I already had about a week to week and a half of growth. Perfect timing on my part if I do say so myself. Well, the product I bought from Mad Viking Crew has really helped with dry skin and significantly cut down on the itchiness.
I am giving it 5 stars for a few reasons, mainly because they offer a military discount (thanks my dudes), the shipping was pretty quick (I ordered on a Thursday I think, which it typical of me. *facepalm* I should've ordered earlier in the week to avoid the waiting on weekends. They have a multitude of scents and products. I got Valhalla because (according to their website, it is the best seller). My wife likes the scent of this one. Again, I have only tried this one. The company gave me a sticker (always cool) with my order and the packaging that everything came in was really well thought out in my opinion. Well, I hope this review helps someone in the future and I will be sure to try different scents down the road and see what they smell like.
