Butter like no other...

To be honest, I have never been a butter fan. I have a beard that needs to be controlled, and therefore I prefer something that gives me a ton of hold and taming power. That said, I was reluctant to spring for the AnointedAK beard butter.

However, after seeing the scent profiles and the packaging of the product, I knew I had to try some of them out, so I went with tranquil and class act... which I have been using basically all summer.

I never thought a product might be able to compete with the AnointedAK beard rescue- that stuff is my JAM, I wear it almost every night, and I have almost every scent profile. But I gotta say, after wearing the "Better Butter" for a few weeks, I have reserved the rescue for almost exclusive night time use, and wear butter 2-4 times a week.

What surprised me about the AK butter was the moisturizing property and the hold of this product. The butter moisturizes my skin under my beard more than any product I have ever used. My advice would be to start off using a small amount of product; because of its crazy ability to moisturize your skin, it also tends to become greasy if you use too much. Use a small amount, comb it through, and then apply more if needed.

But the hold also surprised me too. I must admit that I am not big on the grooming process- I prefer a more natural style and I never use any kind of heat, opting instead for regular trims to maintain my beard shape. What I realized about the butter (and likely the reason why I love the rescue so much as well) is that it has the crazy ability to create a natural beard style and to keep it from looking unkempt throughout the day. If you are looking for a more natural, low maintenance beard routine that still looks put together, then the AnointedAK beard butter is your product.

And finally, the last thing that I noticed about the butter was the scent duration and strength: this stuff is strong! The beard butter, in my experience, lasts even longer than the smell of the anointed oils, which is a very welcome perk of this product, as both the scents that I have used are very unoffensive and smooth.

The tranquil has surprisingly been my favorite scent of the two (even though I am a sucker for amber, which the class act delivers in spades). The tranquil might not be for everyone- to me it truly smells like the outdoors. The scent profile has bamboo in it, and it honestly reminds me of the smell of a hike by the creek and up the mountains, a run through the forest, or a summer day and fresh cut grass. I love this scent because it makes me think of the outdoors, and all the activities I like to do in my free time.

But the class act delivers too. It is one of the strongest amber scents that I have smelled to date, and that amber really shines through in purity. To me, it can be used almost as a cologne- it is powdery, smooth, and fragrant.

If I were ya'll, I'd pick up a tin of the beard butter while you pick up a two pack sampler this weekend. The samplers are sure to sell quick, and gives you the opportunity to try two different AK scents for the price of one. I know I'll be picking up the "slumberpack" and the morning glory or high tide beard butter to go with it.

Cheers, Sam
