So.. one of the almost-local malls have a new tenant; a barbershop! One that does beards as opposed to just haircuts, and that uses brushes, lather and shavettes to do the trim!

Since my goatee and moustache had gotten a bit… unruly… I decided to give it a go. The owner/barber was very nice, precise and knowledgeable. A very pleasant experience indeed, and once I fully intend to repeat regularly.
I also picked up a beard oil from a company I have no previous experience with; Gentlemen of Sweden. The scent is subtle and nice, consisting of rice bran oil, sunflower seed oil, argan oil, jojoba oil and lavender oil.
I’ll report back more fully when I’ve given it more use.
