Repsol Care- Beard Brush and Comb Kit II Review

Repsol Care- Beard Brush and Comb Kit II Review

This post was most recently updated on November 7th, 2018

Repsol Care is a company based in the United Kingdom that specializes in hair and skin care products. Interestingly, they have split their product lines into two: Rapid Beard, which is for those needing grooming and trimming products for beards, and Ineffable Care, which focuses on hair and body care for men and women.  They have five products, two of which being beard and comb sets for men.

What we will be talking about is their second set, Repsol Care- Beard Brush and Comb Kit II, which is the set that has a beard brush and the sandalwood comb. Their first kit is basically all of their products, beard oil, and barber scissors included into one, which warrants its own review.

The first kit is better suited for barbers and professionals, while the second and newer kit is what every man who has a beard needs!

Repsol Care, through their Rapid Beard subsidiary brand, was launched in 2015, with this kit as their flagship product. They hit the motherlode, so to speak.

With great reviews and high ratings, it is easy to see why this would be their bestseller. While their first kit contains several great products, it is more geared toward professionals, and this second kit is intended for stylish men with beards.

Before talking about the beard brush and comb kit itself, let’s talk about what we should be looking for in a great beard brush or beard comb.

  • The toughness, which is basically what the beard comb and beard brush are made up of.

Thicker materials do make the product tough, but that will affect the ease of use and comfortable transportability.

With that in mind, I find wooden materials work best for beard combs and brushes.

  • The usefulness of the teeth of the comb or the brushes the bristles.

For beard combs, having two sides is definitely a desirable feature. That’s not to say that combs with only one side of teeth are bad, but I prefer two-sided combs.

For beard brushes, I prefer using bristles made up of boar hair rather than synthetic bristles.

  • The toughness of the brush and the comb, especially the bristles and teeth.
  • The design and sturdiness of the handle.

For the purpose of this product, and for sets in general, I will be reviewing the comb and the brush separately.

Features of the Repsol Care- Beard Brush and Comb Kit II

For the beard comb:

  • This beard comb is fairly large and heavy, 3 x 1.4 x 2 inches and weighing at 2.4 ounces.
  • The comb is entirely wooden; however, it does not seem to be made of bamboo. Personally, it looks like sandalwood.
  • The comb has only one side of teeth, with the regular sizes usually found with combs.
  • The comb is heavy, so it does not require much pushing and pulling to straighten hair.

For the beard brush:

  • This beard brush is also a bit larger and a bit heavier than most beard brushes at 4 x 1.4 x 2.1 inches and weighing at 5.6 ounces.
  • The handle is made of wood and the bristles are made of wild boar hair.
  • The bristles are thicker than most on the market.
  • The brush is quite larger than most. This works great for me since it can cover a lot more area.

Pros

  • For the beard brush, the bristles are the best! They are not too thick or thin, but are just right!
  • For the comb, it has made styling my beard much easier. The comb helps me untangle and smooth out my beard. In fact, downward combing motions are easier since it is heavier.
  • Both comb and brush have great wooden handles. They are both on the larger and heavier side compared to similar items on the market.
  • They are both extremely hard. Even if you throw them, there will not be a dent (I accidentally dropped the brush, no damage can be seen). I am quite impressed!
  • Both are really strong.
  • The packaging, especially the cotton bag, is a great touch.

Cons

  • The comb only has one side and set of teeth. While it does its job well, having two sides would make me rank the comb higher.
  • The bristles of the brush sometimes cover too much. I can feel some oil sticking on my skin. This is to be expected since the brush is bigger than most on the market.

Verdict

I can definitely see why the Repsol Care- Beard Brush and Comb Kit II is a best seller and is so highly rated. Both can still be improved, but what we have is still superior to most on the market. Especially, at this price point.

If they can make the comb double sided and the brush a bit smaller, then it would be perfect. This is definitely a great gift for yourself or friend! I highly recommend it!
