Beard Product Review – Bay Rum Beard Oil and Beard Wash from Artius Man

Artius Man is an American beard care product creator from Sunbury, Ohio. The company prides itself on creating high quality beard products from natural and organic ingredients.

I wrote two product reviews for this company back in 2017, which are available here and here. Artius Man was kind enough to send me some new samples of beard products I haven’t reviewed.

In this article, I’ll be reviewing a new scent of theirs called “Bay Rum”. The products I’ve tried out are the Bay Rum beard oil and the Bay Rum beard wash. In the upcoming weeks, I’ll test out and review 4 more beard oil scents from Artius Man.

That being said, Artius Man is one of the first beard product companies I wrote reviews for when I started out Keep Growing That Beard. To this day, I still think they make some of the highest quality beard oil and beard wash out there and for that reason, I’m glad to have been given to chance to review additional products from this company.

Bay Rum Beard Oil

Bay Rum Beard Oil from Artius Man

One of Artius Man‘s signature twist is spice, in various ways. They have several beard products that contain aromas in the likes of cinammon or clove, among others. The Bay Rum beard oil makes no exception.

The Bay Rum beard oil has a predominent strong spicy rum aroma without any alcoholic notes whatsoever. Strong cinammon notes are also very present in the blend, which helps provide even more spice. The clove notes are mild whereas the vanilla notes are more subtle.

This beard oil remains sweet, but not as much the average rum-scented beard oil. From my perspective, I feel like Artius Man raised the bar by taking a somewhat popular beard oil scent and making it their own by playing around with additional aromas in their own unique way.

The control this beard oil provides is above-average, thanks to its thickness. Some beardsmen may not like thick and greasy beard oils, since they’re a bit harder to get off their hands. Speaking for myself, I look for control to straighten my beard as much as possible and for that matter, Artius Man’s beard oil is a tool of choice.


Here’s the list of ingredients for Artius Man’s Bay Rum beard oil:

Castor oil, Sunflower seed oil, Shea seed oil, Argan kernel oil, Marula seed oil, Baobab seed oil, Vitamin E, Bay, Cinammon bark & leaf, Lime, Vanilla, Allspice and clove essential oils.

Just by the list of ingredients, you can see how complex this beard oil blend is!

Bay Rum Beard Wash

The Bay Rum beard wash is yet another terrific product from Artius Man. The bay rum scent is even more present in this product, which is typically the case in Artius Man’s beard wash. This beard wash is hands down one of the best you can find on the market. Not only does it smell amazing, it also cleanses extremely well and feels refreshing and gentle at the same time on both the beard and skin.

It makes my beard slightly dry after use, on some occasions. I feel it’s important to point that out, but that’s definitely no big deal. If this happens to you, just use a beard conditioner, a beard softener or more beard balm after using this beard wash, and voilà, you’re good to go!


Here’s the list of ingredients for the Bay Rum beard wash:

Coconut Oil*, Potassium Hydroxide, Olive Oil*, Glycerin, Sunflower Oil*, Guar Gum, Aloe Vera Juice Extract*, Rosemary Extract, Shea Butter*, Citric Acid, and essential oils for scent.

* Organic ingredient.


For me, Artius Man’s beard products are a sure shot. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of their products, and the Bay Rum beard oil and beard wash make no exception.

You get a beard oil with a daring blend of aromas that gives a terrific sweet and spicy non-alcoholic scent of rum with a nice cinnamon twist and subtle notes of clove and vanilla. The quality is premium, the beard oil is thick, provides control that makes the use of beard balm optional sometimes.

If you like the scent of the Bay Rum beard oil, you won’t be disappointed with their beard wash since its scent smells even stronger. Besides its terrific scent, it has solid and effective cleansing properties. Artius Man makes one of the best beard wash on the market, without a doubt.

If you’re looking for a pretty good deal, I suggest you get their Bay Rum Launch Kit, which includes a bottle of beard oil, a tin of beard balm and a bottle of beard wash.
