Layton McGuire Gives His Honest Review of His Leven Rose Beard Oil
Not sure if you've met or heard of Layton before - he's getting to be well-known in the midwest music scene and now has an album on iTunes. We dig him and he seems to be a genuinely nice guy.
We have to say, we also like his BEARD. I mean, he kept sending us photos of it and we think it's pretty sweet, you might say. He's even been beard modeling - we hadn't spoken directly with someone who had been in that business yet. So, rock on for beards!
We were chatting that he'd just bought our Beard Oil on Amazon just a week or so prior along with some other products and wanted to give us his honest scoop on what he finds. We were especially thrilled because he found us and thought we should dedicate a blog post to him. He seems like a swell guy and here's what he and his beard thought of our Beard Oil:
Leven Rose's beard oil has been such a treat. The first thing I've noticed after using it for some time is that the tips on the end of my beard hair no longer as hard and scratchy, but soft and flexible. The tips of my beard hair also no longer feel dry but healthy and rich.
My beard overall is much softer and more pliable than before. The oil gives the beard a nice shine. I love how applying the oil to my finger tips allows me to get into the deep thick part of my beard where moisture is most needed. I highly recommend this product to any man with a beard.
"If you love your beard, prove it!" Definitely an essential tool in taking care of your beard.
Just a few days later, he messaged us again with another happy quote to leave us with - "My beard is incredibly soft now!".
We're so stoked! Thanks, Layton!
Oh, and check out his album on iTunes: http://apple.co/1pdXJ2R and give his stuff a listen, a purchase and a share.
Someone's in love with us - we dig it!
We've been really lucky here at Leven Rose to have the BEST customers. We know, other companies say they have the best ones, but they're just flattering themselves. We'll never tell though.
When we got news that we made Bored With Beauty's Love List, we were honored! Below is her great post on why she digs our Jojoba Oil so much. We edited it only to not angry Mr. Google for duplicate content. You can also read her full, original, unsolicited post at her website here.
Hear the scoop from Tiffany from Bored with Beauty
If you're familiar with my previous posts on skincare, you'll know that I'm absolutely in love with oils! I've used Argan, Almond and Jojoba oils to cleanse and moisturize my skin year-round, but Leven Rose's Jojoba oil is definitely my personal favorite - I'm on my second bottle! I have very, very sensitive skin from head to toe, so I have to be careful when using skincare products.
Most commercial products can leave my skin, red, irritated and cause small rashes and breakouts on my face and body. I cannot use lotion on my body except on my legs and forearms, if used anywhere else it will wreak havoc! However, using Leven Rose's Jojoba Oil changed everything!
FABULOUS FOR SENSITIVE SKIN & SUNBURNS
Jojoba Oil by Leven Rose is the only product that has not me caused any skin issues. In fact, it cleans up the mess left by other products by healing my skin!
It does not clog pores or cause acne, it helps heal acne naturally without harsh, drying chemicals. This is not just a fact, it really works for me. Jojoba Oil is the closest oil to our natural sebum and it "tricks" our skin into thinking it's already produced enough oil. This helps control our skin from overproducing oil and making our skin greasy. I stayed in the sun too long last summer and was sunburned! I used their Jojoba Oil on the burn multiple times a day and not only did it heal my burn quickly, but it also soothed the pain and the burn did not peel! When my body finally shed the burned skin, it didn't shed like a reptile. The skin looked very healthy!
A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY + IT'S EASY TO APPLY
You only need a few drops to moisturize your face, so this product will last you quite a while. To be sure you don't use too much oil, add a few drops to your palm, rub your hands together to warm and thin the oil and pat onto your face for instant moisture. Add more if needed, but always start with just a few drops so that you don't over do it.
If you ever feel "greasy", it's most likely caused by using too much oil. Splash your face with cool water and pat dry with a towel and you should be good to go! When I apply Jojoba to my body, I rub the oil in my palms and then press it into my skin. I then wipe my hands over my skin like applying lotion. Jojoba absorbs into your skin quicker than other oils and is very comfortable (wipe off excess oil with a towel).
USE JOJOBA AS A FACE CLEANSER
I'm a huge fan of using oils to cleanse my face and Jojoba Oil is fantastic to add to your oil cleansing method mixture or used on it's own! It's also great for removing face makeup.
IT'S A GREAT PRODUCT FOR MANY USES
Not only is Jojoba Oil great for your face and body, you can even use it in your hair. I add a drop or two to my palms, rub my hands together and lightly swipe the oil down the ends of my hair to help with any frizz.
It can also be used as an overnight hair mask! Add oil to your palms, rub together and apply all over your hair. Wear a processing cap over your hair and a place a folded towel on your pillow. Sleep with the Jojoba Oil and processing cap on your hair overnight and wash the next morning for soft hair! It's also a popular oil for beards! Jojoba Oil is amazing for cuticles and extremely dry skin. If you have rough, dry, hands or feet, warm up a few drops of Jojoba in your palms and apply generously. Use moisture gloves or socks overnight and you'll have soft skin the next morning!
PURE AND NATURAL
Jojoba Oil by Leven Rose is 100% pure, natural and free of chemicals and GMOs! Their dark amber bottles protect oxidation from happening to the oil and help keep it's potency. This product is not tested on animals and is vegan-friendly!
This little skincare gem costs $13.97 for a 4 fl oz bottle and it'll last a long time (keep in a cool, dark place). You can purchase Leven Rose Jojoba Oil from Amazon but it is also available at LevenRose.com, along with their Argan, Pure Emu and Beard oils! Leven Rose also has a 100% money back guarantee!

Bored With Beauty does reviews on lots of beauty products, and recently was featured on MTV for her video on CandyLips, which is what is rumored to be Kylie Jenner's lip plumping item of choice. We really dig Tiffany, so you should give her a good ol' follow. Read her full article here.
On Saturday, March 7th in chilly Mahtowa, Minnesota, hundreds of guests arrived to see the 48 beard competitors for TJ's Country Store's 2nd Annual Beard & Mustache Contest.
Lining up to win prizes and a bottle of Leven Rose Beard Oil were contestants in the following categories: Trend Beard, Full Beard, Partial Beard, and Mustache. Congratulations to all the winners!
Much to our dismay (and surprise!), many of these great beards had never used beard oil before. We were thrilled to hear that they were eager to go home and give it a good ol' try. In frigid and dry climates, a good beard needs a great beard oil. We were more than happy to oblige as a product sponsor.
Check out some of these great beards below. Did the best beard win in your opinion?
