This company sells hemp-based products, among other things, through a subscription service. Their products are aimed at both men and women.
In this article, I will review two products from their 420 beard product line: The Essence of Camp Fire beard oil and the CinnaMAN Bun beard balm. Both products are hemp-based and while their scents are quite different from each other, when used together, they make a pretty nice combination that smells awesome.

Essence of Camp Fire Beard Oil
I was impressed by the Essence of Camp Fire beard oil. At first glance, I was expecting a beard oil that smells like clothes the morning after sitting next to a camp fire the night before. I usually find this kind of scent cool once in a while, but it gets annoying quickly.
The Essence of Camp Fire beard oil scent made me change my mind, totally. This scent contains an impressive and well-balanced blend of aromas that obviously smells like burned wood, but in a subtle way. The blend includes the following aromas: Clarity Sage, Birch Tar, Clove, Cinnamon and Cedarwood Essential Oils. All these aromas are agilely blended. The Birch Tar and the cinnamon are predominant in the mix, without overshadowing the other aromas.
This is a woodsy, sweet, spicy and smoky beard oil. The scent is definitely unique and if you like cinnamon, you’ll enjoy this one without a doubt. Personally, I think this kind of “smoked cinnamon” beard oil scent is genius.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Essence of Camp Fire beard oil scent:
Clarity Sage, Birch Tar, Clove, Cinnamon and Cedarwood Essential Oils, Jojoba, Pumpkin and Hemp Oils.
CinnaMAN Bun Beard Balm
The CinnaMAN Bun beard balm is one of the best smelling beard balms I’ve ever used. This beard balm smells EXACTLY like a warm cinnamon bun with vanilla glaze. When used with the the Essence of Camp Fire beard oil, you get one heck of a beard grooming product mix. Actually, you get lots of cinnamon with woodsy and smoky notes. This is simply amazing, as long as you like cinnamon. If you hate it, you might as well pass on this one.
When used alone or with a neutral beard oil however, the CinnaMAN Bun beard balm may feel a bit too sweet and overloaded with cinnamon, depending on your level of appreciation of this spice.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the CinnaMAN beard balm scent:
Cinnamon and Vanilla Essential Oils, Jojoba, Pumpkin and Hemp Oils.
Feeling on Beard and Skin
The Essence of Camp Fire beard oil has a texture that’s just fine. It applies pretty well on the beard and provides good control. The oil is tougher on skin than the average beard oil. This should be taken into consideration if you have sensitive skin, although it’s definitely not a showstopper.
As for the CinnaMAN Bun beard balm, I need to point out the fact that it’s very tough on skin. Although cinnamon smells very great, it appears to be quite tough on skin. The first time I used this beard balm, my face went red to the extent that I could precisely identify the area where I had applied the balm. The next time was better, but gave me red skin too. I do have a rather sensitive skin (not extreme though), so I might not be the best candidate for a beard balm with such a strong ingredient as its base.
Nevertheless, the beard balm is very efficient, provides great control and gives a nice shiny look to my beard… and of course, smells like heaven.
The 420 Beard Company product line from SensiBox is impressive. The Essence of Camp Fire beard oil has a unique scent that blends smoky, sweet and woodsy aromas. The notes of cinnamon and Birch Tar definitely help make the scent unique, and are the main reasons why it smells so good.
The CinnaMAN Bun beard balm smells even better and overall, this is a pretty effective beard balm. However, it may not be suitable for beardsmen with sensitive skin. The use of cinnamon results in a product that’s tough on skin. If you don’t have sensitive skin, this is a terrific beard balm of premium quality that’s definitely worth trying out if you like cinnamon.
