I bought this for my husband to try and he liked it. Much to my dislike my husband started growing a beard but he promises to trim it down after Halloween since he is planning to dress up as Kratos from God of War. And yes he very much looks like that character. Anyways to aid his beard to be softer he uses oils and I thought this would help him as well. He said he likes it but I guess he needs to use it couple of times to see how well it works.
