Things that deserve the stink-eye:

For realz or just clever marketing?
(I would brand this unsheared oil.)
Hmm. Does my beard stink? Is it not shiny enough? No one's complained. Yet. Honestly though, it didn't occur to me until I discovered beard oil. According to Reddit, beard oil is a good thing. Could be I guess. But then I researched the ingredients. According to the Art of Manliness (also new to me), you can DIY your own beard oil using the following recipe:

-1 tbsp melted coconut oil
-3 drops of peppermint oil

Hmm. Have the same sort sorts of sexist marketing practices that target (and overcharge) women become commonplace for men as well? Totally.

Anyway, I'll let you know how this works out after I finish reading the manly skills section of the Art of Manliness. Lol.

That seems like a bit much. But if it makes men feel better about their beards, I'm all for it. I love a beard on a man.

I blame the prevailing beard culture for this product. I mean, what's wrong with not having a beard??? I used to have one years ago & decided to quit it long before it became a trend. YOU HEAR THAT BREAD HIPSTERS!?! I QUIT YOUR PRECIOUS BEARDED LOOK BEFORE IT WAS COOL!!! HA! I'm more hipster than the hipsters! And now society wants to look down on me & my clean-shaven brethren? I've seen the memes! Heck, I'm almost 40 & people still think I'm in my 20's so, thank you very much but no thanks, beard fanatics on Facebook. I don't need to grow no beard!

(PS: This rant has nothing to do with the fact that all the grey hair that stay out of sight on my head are now most prominent on my face &, as such, if I grew one again it would give my true age away)

Couple of things. First, hipsters. Second, old school beards got oiled by eating greasy foods or working with motor oil.

I thought this trend was no longer hip? It might make elderly canines smell better though.
