BEARDS: Marbeian Beard & Moustache Brush Travel Kit

As my quest for something of a Viking look continues my beard game is now up to levels where daily care is required to keep both the skin underneath moisturised but also the beard itself conditioned and looking tidy. Nobody wants to look as though they slept in a bush, even if they did. It wasn't until last year that I dipped my toe into the water of beard brushes. My Kent BRD2 brush however seems to have gone and done a disappearing act while waiting for me to regain my mane. I needed a new brush (I turn into a compulsive brusher once fully bearded) - step forward the Beard & Moustache Brush Travel Kit from Marbeian
BEARDS: Beard & Moustache Brush Travel Kit
I picked up this set of beard grooming goodness from Amazon for just under £15, so a real steal, particularly when you consider that you get two brushes and a comb within the kit. You can pick up the kits here.

So, they are reasonably priced, but is it just tat off Amazon? Well, no. 

I'd never heard of Marbeian before, so I did a little look around to see who they were and it turns out to be a family run venture from Spain stocking a range of hairbrushes and grooming tools. Their website here gives the lowdown on the products they have to offer for all your grooming needs. Their customer promise is:

'Our promise is a happy customer who gets only superior quality products. Marbeian products don’t have to be replaced often - some ever! We offer a lifetime guarantee on many products. Style and workmanship last time making Marbeian a sustainable choice. Please consider nature and reduce waste.'

All beard brushes from Marbeian are made using boar hair bristles and the beard brush here is a real corker - the bristles have the rigidity to plough through a thick beard but they also ease out tangles and knots like a hot knife through butter. Resembling more of a boot polish brush the wooden handle makes it perfect for use in either my left or right hand.

If I had to pick up one flaw with the angled bristles on my Kent BRD2 brush it was that I could only use it with my right hand making brushing the left hand side of my face awkward. With the Marbeian brush I have no such problems. 

The smaller brush is also a star in it's own right - it makes 'tache shaping so much easier and means you don't have to get your hands messy with beard oil or balm when moulding into shape for the day.

Last up is the wooden 'tache comb - excellent at de-tangling the old tea strainer prior to trimming. 

All of the items in the kit are really well made, and with the cotton carry bag these are perfect for slotting into my travel bag when I'm off out and about around the country with work. I've had these brushes for just under six months and I get the feeling that as long as I don't leave them in a hotel somewhere they will still be working their boar bristle magic on my bearded face in many years to come.

When you look at the price and look at the goods it's a no-brainer to have this kit in your grooming arsenal.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  1. It's so funny to me that men need to take a beard care kit around with them- it's not something I think about. I guess it's just the same as us girls taking hair stuff (and everything else we insist on carrying around with us!)

  2. The same day I read about beard upkeeping and I shave mine off. But still a right proper written product guide about Marbien. And bonus points for buying your product instead of getting it free!!

  3. My boyfriend has quite a large beard and he's got so many brushes I swear he has more than me, but it does always feel so soft x

  4. This looks like a fab kit - I would consider getting this for my Steve for his birthday but knowing him, he'll shave his off before then! What's the betting I don't get it though and he keeps it...decisions decisions

  7. I think this would make a great present for those with beards of facial hair. My husband is a clean shaved guy myself! I think the price is very good value though.

  8. My daddy carries a comb around with him and could to with travel kit too. He'd love this....maybe for fathers day!

  9. I have never seen a beard care kit before and I have to say, it's intriguing. The hipster community with long beards and mustaches will definitely appreciate it.

  10. This looks like a great kit for the bearded man! I may have to treat my brother to one for his birthday as he's always moaning about the upkeep of his!

  11. I think people sorely overlook what goes into maintaining facial hair. Just under £15 is a seriously good deal for a set like this.
