More NWPs for my beard

In last month’s post I regaled you about my venture into beardom. I was a complete novice and walked into it blindly. Now after a few months, I can safely say I have made it to the other side relatively unscathed.

So how have I done it, I can hear you asking yourself. I have to admit, it wouldn’t have been possible without procuring and using a wide array of products that have aided me in my venture.

Previously I mentioned beard wash, and what wonders that did, but recently I have found an item (by the same brand in fact) that I feel is even more useful.

It is essentially a mini kit, that includes not only beard wash, but oil too. However instead of them being full size items (that are quite expensive in themselves), the kit contains miniatures, that are much smaller, more affordable and transportable too.

Altogether the kit comes in at just over half the price of the full sized wash! So you may think this might be a good place for a bearded beginner to start and get their feet wet.

That’s exactly what I was a few months ago, and now I’ve come through the other side, I think I’m qualified to say that this little item is definitely the real deal.

The brand themselves call this a beard starter kit, which I think is a pretty apt name. I was a complete beginner when I came across it, and the product really helped ease me into my new bearded life, and ensure my facial hair was looking sharp and in shape from the get go.

All in all I can’t recommend this enough. If you’re on fence and thinking about throwing away your razor then look no further than this starter item to get you going on your way.

More NWP’s

Tales of more NWP’s are on their way – don’t you worry.

I know I promised myself that I’d post every week, but unfortunately it hasn’t panned out that way.

I’ll do my best to get back on track though – starting with an article i’m going to post this weekend!

Unintended Beard Growth on Holiday

Hello again. Gabe here dropping this post to inform you about about some nice, wholesome produce that I got to try recently.

Before I begin, I want to quickly explain something about my blog. I know that with the name, Nice Wholesome Produce, you might think that I’m going to be writing about food all the time.

In this case though you are wrong. I wanted to take the time to discuss some nice products, that I guess you would say aren’t particularly wholesome, but are great nonetheless.

What spurned my foray into this new line of products was the recent unintended growth of my facial hair. You see I was at the airport about to board a flight to the Caribbean for a two week break this summer. During security my wash bag was confiscated – my shaving cream bottle was too bag, and they even took my razors too.

We were headed toward a very remote island, and unfortunately the local shop didn’t have what I needed, so I decided to go the two weeks without shaving. My wife will tell you that this is very unusual behaviour for me. Indeed, up until this moment I had pretty much shaved every day of my adult life.

What happened of the next two weeks both excited and terrified me. I was excited by how quickly the facial hair was sprouting, but terrified to learn that keeping it all neat and tidy was quite a troublesome matter.

Luckily, upon my return home I sat down to some googling and stumbled across a gigantic range of products (that I had never heard of) designed to help me in my particular follicular ailment.

One product, something beard shampoo soon became my trusty shower sidekick. I use it every day and it makes my new beard feel incredible. I was suffering from a spot of beard itch, and the shampoo quickly put that one to bed.

So there you have it, yet another nice, wholesome product.
