Aromasyl is an aromatherapy product company from Quebec City, Canada. The owner of the company, Sylvain Tremblay, is an aromatherapy enthusiast who recently decided to explore the beard product market. Aromasyl’s beard product line is called Lion Beard.
This is the second part of a two-part beard product review series I am writing for Aromasyl. The first part aimed at reviewing their four beard oil scents named Outdoors, Morning Breeze, Spring Mountain and Nights Sleep. In the second part, I will review the beard balms of the same scent, as well as their beard wash.

The Beard Balms
Since I reviewed the beard oil scents, I won’t spend lots of time describing that of the beard balms, as they’re quite similar. Let me talk about the beard balm properties and quality instead.
The beard balms actually smell stronger than the beard oils. As a result, if you use one of Lion Beard’s beard oils along with the beard balm of the same scent, the scent will be dramatically enhanced.
The texture is okay, and a bit on the hard side. It applies well on the beard. It can be a bit gritty at times, but that’s no big deal as long as you’re willing to perform extra rubbing compared to the average beard balm.
As for control, these beard balms do a nice job. I happened to use it on what I thought would be a “bad beard day” and it helped fix my wavy and frizzy beard issues.
All in all, Lion Beard’s beard balms are high-quality products and pretty surprising considering the fact that Aromasyl, although they make several kinds of body products, had never crafted beard products until recently.
Aromasyl’s Lion Beard shampoo is a solid one. Honestly, if I hadn’t known the company, I would’ve never thought this is the very first shampoo they’ve ever made.
This beard shampoo is 100% natural. It feels very fresh, thanks to the use of peppermint essential oil. It also cleanses pretty well and doesn’t dry out the beard.
It could be less limpid though. You need lots of light in the shower in order to be able to quantify the amount of shampoo in your wet hands. I also noticed that it doesn’t lather much compared to the average beard shampoo. This is a detail, and whether you like beard shampoos that lather a lot or not that much is up to you.
Nevertheless, that’s a great beard shampoo and in my humble opinion, I think this product should be the flagship of Aromasyl’s beard product line.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Lion Beard Shampoo:
Castille soap, Jojoba oil, Lavender hydrolat, Peppermint essential oil, Tea tree essential oil and Vitamin E.
The Lion Beard product line offers beard oils, beard balms and a beard shampoo. The beard oils blends are well-balanced and rather woodsy and sometimes herbal. If you’re into these kinds of aromas, you’ll definitely enjoy the Lion Beard beard oils.
As for the beard balms, when combined with the Lion Beard beard oils, you get a solid combo. These beard balms may have a harder texture, but apply well on the beard and can take care of your “bad beard days”.
Finally, the Lion Beard beard shampoo is an awesome peppermint-scented product. It cleanses the beard in a great way, without drying it out and feels refreshing. This is a solid beard shampoo that I won’t hesitate to recommend.
