CanYouHandlebar Products Review

CanYouHandlebar Initiative Beard Oil 1 OZ Flask

CanYouHandlebar is the first and original Beard Oil Flask. The benefits of a stainless steel flask of beard oils include the ability to pocket-carry your oil wherever you go, never having to worry about broken glass in your dopp kit, and of course the fact that we made the manliest of grooming products even manlier. This is a beard oil that inspires me to put in the hard work and the hours to build something worth having. This is a more brisk scent and is made from a stack of brisk citrus. Initiative Beard Oil, made with olive oil, grapeseed oil, apricot oil, jojoba, argan, vitamin E and essential oils, is blended and bottled by hand.

I received all of the products complimentary.

Cassandra's review- This oil is great for the beard and skin. It works and does not have an unappealing scent. The absorption into the hair is done in a way that it does not drip or look like an oily mess. I know that I have a man with a beard that is enjoying this product immensely. The only problem is that the flask can leak, so you have to be really careful how it is stored.

This beard oil brush was specifically selected to work with Beard Dry Oil (Beard Balms) cans as well as traditional beard oils. Each brush is branded with the CanYouHandlebar Question Mark. The base of the brush is wood and the bristles are horse hair. The bristles penetrate through most beards to provide a gentle massage, while ensuring that the oils cover the hairs completely and make it all the way to the hair underneath, so that your chiseled jawline receives the nourishment it needs.

Cassandra's Review- Right from the tin this has a distinct scent almost like a permanent marker. The bristles stay intact and the top is easy to grip. This works with oils and wax. I was able to gift it to a male that really enjoys the way it helps to apply the product and is easy to clean.

CanYouHandlebar is the first and original Beard Oil Flask. The benefits of a stainless steel flask of beard oils include the ability to pocket-carry your oil wherever you go, never having to worry about broken glass in your dopp kit, and of course the fact that we made the manliest of grooming products even manlier. This unscented beard oil is built to provide health and shine to your beard without adding any additional scent. This makes Temperance Beard Oil a perfect beard oil for those that hunt, those with allergies (or are around those with allergies), those that don't want their beard oil to compete with their cologne, or anyone else that for whatever reason simply wants a craft made beard oil without a scent. The virtue of Temperance is knowing when less is more. The base oil was designed with excellent ingredients to help your beard look great and maintain its health. Beard oils are blended and bottled by hand and are made with olive oil, grapeseed oil, apricot oil, jojoba, argan and vitamin E. The attention to detail extends to the labeling which is both waterproof and oil-proof.

Cassandra's Review- This oil is great for the beard and skin. It works and does not have an unappealing scent. The absorption into the hair is done in a way that it does not drip or look like an oily mess. I know that I have a man with a beard that is enjoying this product immensely and will want more in the future.

This extra-strength wax was designed to help your moustache look great and maintain its health. Made from quality ingredients, including local wax (from Michigan bees), USP lanolin, castor oil, coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E. The batches are made by hand, inspected by hand and packaged by hand. The attention to detail extends to the labeling which is both waterproof and oil-proof. Do you like to curl your moustache and not have to worry about it drooping during the day? This is your wax. This wax smells great and contains no artificial dyes or fragrances. It provides one ounce of the extra hold you need when you are willing to spend a little more time upfront to achieve the hold. Some guys use it every day, but every guy should have it for when maximum hold is required!

Warm the wax in your pocket or (with the lid on) under hot water. Scoop a little bit out and massage between your index fingers and thumbs. Apply from the indie toward the curls. Once worked all the way into the mustache, without clumps, comb the mustache out with a Kent Mustache comb and shape the curls.

Cassandra's Review- A wax that any man can depend on for a strong hold and massively amazing scent.

Are you a laid back gentleman that would prefer to encourage your hairs rather than resort to the use of force? This is your wax. This wax smells great and contains no artificial dyes or fragrances. It provides one ounce of the hold you need and the ease of use that a daily wax must have. This wax was designed to help your mustache look great and maintain its health. Made from quality, natural ingredients, including local wax (from Michigan bees), USP lanolin, castor oil, coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E. The batches are made by hand, inspected by hand and packaged by hand. The attention to detail extends to the labeling which is both waterproof and oil-proof.

Cassandra's Review- The wax has a pleasing scent. It can hold a light beard in place. I like how handsome and neat the beard looks when this is applied to male.

It does not have a nasty scent and did not cause any eyelid irritation or redness. It is as easy as putting on mascara unless of course you have a problem doing so.

Cassandra's Review-  If your not used to putting things in your nose this can take a bit of time to get used to.  However it does work and I felt more rested upon waking. It is not a super big product, but it felt a little weird, but I did not have a nosebleed or any damage.

Book Description:

When technology fulfills every dream, reality becomes a nightmare.
Below the streets of New State, the undergrounders fight to remain free of the technological control of the world above. Every night, Yara risks her life fighting New State’s deadliest weapons, the drones. Half human and half machine, their living half tortured until everything human is gone, the drones have only one objective. Kill. And they do it with exacting precision.
Yara is good at her job and committed to her raids on New State. Until one of those raids brings her face-to-face with Joshua, a New State citizen who doesn’t quite fit her preconceived expectations. After a couple of awkward encounters, he shows her the meaning of hooking up—a computer simulation that allows people to live out their fantasies—without the complication of emotional entanglements or physical reality. But what Yara feels for Joshua is very real. And it’s punishable by law.
As she and Joshua grow closer, she convinces him to leave New State for her underground cause. But as the unrest between New State and the underground escalates, and the drones move in to destroy her world, nothing goes as planned. Families are arrested, loyalties are strained, and Yara’s forced to choose between her people and her feelings. The wrong choice could mean the end of her people, and reality could slip away—forever...

“Hi,” he called out.
Yara’s heart hammered, and adrenaline coursed through her limbs. She turned to run.
“Wait,” the stranger whispered. “I won’t turn you in. I’m out here too.” He obviously didn’t realize that Yara was a rebel. He might not know it yet, but he would soon. Still, he didn’t sound dangerous. Maybe Yara could take care of him. She had never had to kill anyone totally human, but she had trained to do so. At this point, she didn’t think she would need to. The skinny boy didn’t look like a real threat, either.
She turned back toward him and attempted what she hoped was a look of death and destruction.
Instead of being scared, he smiled at her and brushed the hair out of his eyes. Even in the shadowy street, Yara could see the color was a beautiful emerald green. She had a hard time looking away, until his voice jarred her back to reality.
“I’m Joshua15111,” he said robotically. “What are you doing out here?”
“I could ask you the same thing.”
“Enjoying the night sky,” he replied, each word clipped and succinct. Unable to make prolonged eye contact, he looked toward the stars.
“Aren’t you supposed to be hooked up to an alternate universe, enjoying battle, boobs, or whatever perverted fantasy you want to conquer tonight?” Yara asked, and then instantly regretted her words.
“Hey, it’s not like that. You know how it is.” For the first time, his voice took on a more humanistic quality. He sounded peeved.
She grunted in response. She didn’t know anything of the sort.
Joshua15111 looked at her briefly, quizzically. “Wait, do you know that? Are you one of them? The rebels?”
Oh no. “What rebels?”
“Are you for real? Everyone knows about the rebels. You must be one. Are you a rebel? That’s so cool.”
Me and my big mouth. Fear finally overtook her. Vague ideas about running away from or fighting the stranger flitted by, but Yara’s feet felt like concrete blocks. She wasn’t even sure she’d be able to form a coherent sentence if he asked her something about the underground.
