So this week I've been looking into getting myself some beard care supplies again and while the original contenders were between Beard Monster and Grimfrost I decided to be a little experimental and ordered a box from Dollar Beard Club - a riff on Dollar Shave Club where you can build a box of beard care supplies from the ground up starting from as low as a dollar plus shipping each month. It might be beneficial to people if I explain some of what sold me on them (at least this month).
1. Price. Their oil, in the small (almost sample) size is only $1USD per box, so for someone who is shopping around for a supplier of beard care that it actually perfect. They have other products which can be more expensive (my total box, including shipping, comes to $12.99) but for me just wanting to give it a try it was great.
2. Humor. Their videos are a cross between Old Spice and Red Stripe in comedy levels and I appreciate people who can commit to comedy as a part of the brand.
3. Referral links. Full disclosure, but if you click here, build a box of your own that comes to $5 or more per month they'll send me a one-time finder's fee. They sent me that even before I'd purchased anything and it definitely made up my mind for the month as far as where I'd be getting my own supplies.
That last one was the deciding factor in a big way at the moment because if enough people use my link I can more than cover the cost of my own beard care very quickly, and even get me the extra money for the Pattillo & Ellis Beard Care shirt in the RT store if I'm lucky.
And on a personal note I'm finally getting okay at putting my bronze beard ring in, unsteady hands be damned!
