All of Viking Revolution's products have been good but I'm on the fence one this one... The travel bag is nicely made, high quality and has their own custom logo zipper pull. I can see this bag lasting many many trips, quality stuff for sure. The sizes of the products are perfect for this bad and more than enough for a few week long vacations I'm sure. The safety scissors aren't long enough for a regular trim/maintenance so don't get your hopes up but they'll work in a pinch to get those wiley hairs that won't cooperate that pop up overnight. The beard oil, wash, conditioner and balm work as well as all of their products but they were all rather bland in the scent department. I understand that this scent shouldn't overpower things but even comparing it to the previous batches of this product I've had these seemed weak (could just be this batch, I don't know).
Since I travel for work every other week. I wanted something that I could just grab and go. This bag of product is small and doesn't take up a lot of room in my suitcase. The Sandlewood scent might be my wife's favorite of the 3 scents I now own from this company. I have to say I am a fan of the product this company sells. I started out using the Citrus Balm which my life likes the smell. Then decided to try the Sage balm which I think she liked a little better. Sandlewood might be her favorite. I use the beard oil and brush to keep hairs in place. It has made my goatee softer. I don't have any dry beard flakes. With this product I have been able to double the length of beard and keep it looking good and in place. My goatee is fairly short by comparison to the guy in the ad. I was always at a 2 on my trimmer. Now I am on a 4. I am thinking of going to a 5 on the trimmer soon.
I’m new to the beard game, and with some research I figured I’d trust the reviews on Amazon. First, the kit is amazing for starters and worth the price, but 2oz is tiny no matter how you cut it. I’m a big fan of sandalwood scent which sold me and when you open the bottle of oil you are hit with an amazing scent. Sadly, after 10 minutes the scent does dissipate in both the oil and balm. I was a little upset with the short lived scent, but everyone has an opinion on how long they prefer it to linger. I will say I noticed an improvement in the texture of my beard with both the conditioner and shampoo, but sadly the oil didn’t elicit much change. I have an oil I purchased from TJmaxx that actually softened my beard better, but again everyone has different textures to their beard. Overall, this is a great starter kit, but know your hair type. For me I have coarser hair and it didn’t help that much. Great company though which is why I gave them a rave review!!
So this is an amazing product to say the least... I haven't ever gotten anything I'm not happy with, since ordering from viking revolution. This kit is pretty good which is why it gets 4 stars from me. I'm not a hige fan of sandalwood, but this actually smells amazing! And the wife loves it, so that's a plus lol. The scissors are decent, they could definitely be sharper though in my opinion. I do love the softness of my beard after using everything, but as a typical man i hate the extra step involved for the beard conditioner... But like i said, makes my beard SUPER soft and the wifey likes it too 😁. So in all it is a great deal for the price, only negatives is the scissors and my personal hate for that extra step with the conditioner! Hope my review gives you a good idea of this kit 😊. And side note the box came to me dented pretty bad, and thankfully they put enough protection inside to combat the abuse to the box lol. This is the husband btw 😂😂😂
TL;DR: Great little kit. Only suggestion is to sharpen/replace the scissors and add a guitar pick for scooping balm.
This is a great product. I’ve been a fan of Viking revolution for a while and would usually just carry my large brush and tin of balm loose in my bag. This case has it all and there really isn’t much I would change about it. The over sized main pocket is great for holding the brush, shampoo and conditioner. While using mine I’m able to fit a full sized toothbrush and toothpaste with some room to spare. While I’m not a huge fan of beard oils I still carry the bottle in the side pocket with the scissors. Huge highlight on the brush btw. Feels like natural bird hair or something similar. I actually like this travel brush more than my full sized VR brush. Finally if I could make some suggestions of change I would say that the scissors need to be sharper for trimming a fuller mustache. Upon using it I found the scissors tugging the hair rather than cutting. Additionally if there was one thing I could add it would be a guitar pick to the bag. This was a trick I learned from badass beardcare in which you use the pick to scoop out a tiny bit of balm so you’re not getting balm under your nails.
I purchased the sandal wood travel kit for my fiancé along with one of your beard combs. He used all of it for the first time today and so far he loves it! He’s been using the comb all day and his bead looks moisturized and smells wonderful! I can’t wait to see how his beard looks after a few weeks of using your products. I ordered the travel kit to make sure he liked it before ordering the larger bottles. Needless to say I will be purchasing the large kit soon! The only negative thing he had to say was that the bristles on the brush that came with the kit came out into his beard, so he doesn’t like the brush, but loves the comb. Also, I really like the fact that they email you to see how you feel about their products. It shows that they care and sets them apart from the other companies. They’ve probably just gained a lifetime customer due to their exceptional customer service and the quality of their products.
I love the shampoo and conditioner and balm that VR makes. I have not tried out the scissors or oil yet after receiving it, but I doubt I will be disappointed. The brush just does not work well for a thicker beard, it needs to be more coarse to get through my beard to brush it out. Otherwise, this set is perfect.
It's a great little kid if you like the sandalwood scent. I really like the travel bag for holding everything very convenient. the only negative thing I'll say is a scissors there a little bit on the cheap side. That might be something that you would expect anyways with the price point. All in all great little set.
Very disappointed in this box. I knew the wash and conditioner was small. However I didn’t realize the brush was gonna be that small. Both the wash and conditioner was open and leaked out a little. The scissors are useless, very dull. The oil is ok. I haven’t tried the balm but I’m sure its not great. I do not recommend these products. I will be going back to buying Gibs products again.
Viking Revolution sent this to me a few weeks ago to try out, and I am extremely impressed! I travel a ton for work, and this could not be better to keep in my carry on. The bottles are just under 3oz, theres a brush and a pair of beard scissors (blunt tip so they are allowed in your carry on), plus oil AND balm! It has everything you need and is always the highest quality! Literally the only complaint I could think of was the logo on the carry bag they sent is upside down, and that has literally no relevance to how great the products are, so 5 stars from me!
