Neville grooming products from Mankind

Hey guys.

As my third month of blogging is coming to an end it's only right that I do my third beard oil post. 

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that I'm really loving my beard at the moment. But if your a first time reader you should check out my other posts on this in the Grooming Products label. 

I think it's just coming up to my beards first birthday actually, I'm not fully sure when it is but I know it's was around May 2014 when I decided "Stuff it, I'm going to grow a full on beard and look awesome" 

Since I started blogging I've used a few different things - first a minty bread oil and then a beard oil with a beard balm. 

So what have I been using this month I hear you ask....

Well this month it's been the amazing Neville Beard Oil and the Neville Face Splash, both sent to me by the amazing people at Mankind

Mankind don't just sell beard oil, they sell an array of items including clothes, aftershaves, and a heap of male grooming products.

It's a great site and one I will definitely be keeping an eye on when my birthday arrives in July, just so I can treat myself a little bit.



So let me tell you how I got on with the beard oil. 



It comes in a lovely looking 50ml bottle and to me, it has an "old mans" product look about it.
 It just reminds me of the aftershave Brut For Men that you may have seen in many a Dad's or Grandad's bathrooms growing up.

I hated the smell of that stuff. 

Luckily this didn't smell like that at all, but it did have a really strong smell to it.

It has a mixture of hydrating organic argan oil and cottonseed oils.

If I'm being honest I didn't like the smell that much at the start, but it didn't put me off, and now, after using it for over a month I absolutely love it.

It definitely has the look and quality of a high end beard oil - it's bloody amazing

Even when my son walks past me and catches a whiff of it says "Have you got your Neville on?".
He really likes it, not for the smell or that he has a beard himself (he's only 9) - ha ha - it's because his favourite WWE wrestler is called Neville. 

This oil is really thin, not like the last one I used which was really thick. 

But with it being in a 50ml bottle I found I could use quite a lot of it at a time and not worry about it running out. 

Like I said above, I've been using this for about a month now, applying it both morning and night every day, always to a damp, clean beard.

 The bottle is still over half full - the stuff is never ending, which isn't a bad thing at all.

I really do love this oil.
It does everything a good beard oil should - it keeps my beard soft, clean, feeling fresh and very importantly, itch free.

What I like most about it though is that it makes my beard glisten in the light/sun (when it comes out!) and on photos.

I've lost count of the amount of double takes I've done when looking in a mirror or car window. 

If I had to rate it out of 5 it would get a huge, big 4! 

And is definitely a product I will use in the future.

Now let me tell you about the Neville Tonic Splash.


I've never used a tonic splash before, I always thought it was just to be used after a shave to cool your skin down.

This tonic splash is made with aloe vera and is designed to turbo boost your skin routine.

It come in a 100ml bottle, so there was no need for me to be scrimping when it came to the amount I splashed on my face.

It also came in the same bottle design as the beard oil.

I followed the instructions, applying it to a clean, dry face, and wow, I could feel how refreshing it was straight away, I've never felt anything quite like it.

I have used this product every morning for the last month and it has really become a key product in my daily grooming routine.

It's perfect for giving you a little wake up first thing in a morning, especially when you're up at 5am most mornings and it is the perfect partner to the beard oil.

If you would like to know more about this product take a look on the Mankind webpage found (here)
