Nueve Barber is a barbershop based in Vaughan, Ontario. They also have a beard and barber product line named “Trust The G”.
In this article, I will review their “Vanilla Eucalyptus Shave Oil Treatment”. The product name may sound strange to beardsmen, but no worries, this is a genuine beard oil with beard and skin softening / moisturising properties.
Disclosure: The products reviewed in this article have been given to me free of charge. I did not receive any other compensation for writing this review.
A Strong and Unique Scent
The Vanilla Eucalyptus scent is quite unique, and smells pretty great. However, you must be aware that this is a rather strong one. The eucalyptus ingredient is highly present both in terms of aroma and feeling on skin. The vanilla adds a nice twist, and help reduce the “Vicks” feeling of eucalyptus a bit, but still, eucalyptus is quite predominant in this beard oil.
That being said, I like the scent of this beard oil and appreciate this daring blend.
Refreshing and Long Lasting
The strong character of the Vanilla Eucalyptus beard oil comes with a few advantages, including being very refreshing and long lasting.
Eucalyptus is probably the most refreshing ingredient that can be added to a beard oil, followed by mint. This one is very refreshing indeed, but the fact that it’s so strong may seem overkill to some beardsmen. I’d be curious to try the same blend with mild citrus notes, I’m pretty sure this would make the blend significantly milder.
On a different note, I’d like to point out the fact that this is one of the longest lasting beard oil I’ve ever used. Both the smell and shine provided with this beard oil can last an entire day. That’s a very good thing, as long as you like the scent. It also helps soften the beard nicely.
Feeling on Beard and Skin
The Trust the G Vanilla Eucalyptus beard oil has a nice texture and provides good beard control. Cleaning my hands after use was harder than average, but no big deal here. It gives an above-average shiny look to my beard.
One thing I really need to point out is the feeling on skin. As I mentioned, this is a strong-smelling beard oil. Besides that, I don’t think this is the best option for sensitive skin. I do have fairly sensitive skin myself and may feel itching at times after using this oil. The abundance of Eucalyptus is probably the cause.
Oh, and never, ever, rub your eyes when you have this beard oil on your beard. You may get some oil on your fingers after touching your beard, and eucalyptus in your eyes is not something you want to have, trust me.
Trust the G’s Vanilla Eucalyptus beard oil is a pretty good smelling product, but it’s a strong one. The use of eucalyptus makes it a refreshing beard oil, with a long lasting scent and shine. The vanilla aroma could be more present, and perhaps citrus would help make the blend milder.
It can hard on sensitive skin and if you have rashes on your face, it may be wise to use another beard oil until your face gets healed.
If you have no issues with strong beard oil scent and don’t have sensitive skin, this is definitely a beard oil you should try out!
