A Little Something for the Hubby: Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner

I'm a woman who loves a man with a beard. For me, I prefer the facial hair on the Hubby. While ultimately it's up to him, he does it because I love it, which is why I was thrilled to be offered a sample of this male pampering beard conditioner from Smooth Viking! He was too! It's probably the first time I have seen his eyes light up when referencing anything that has to do with my blogging. I get the hint honey!

Smooth Viking Beard Conditioner

Does it work?

The hubby was quite impressed with the way his beard felt after using for a week. He has such coarse hair and doesn't make well for kissing. It was significantly softer and not as brittle. This also makes it easier to smooth over so you don't have little hairs sticking straight out.

How do you use it?

He uses it after he showers and puts a pea to dime size amount of conditioner in the palm of his hand. He uses his fingers to comb it through and leaves it on throughout the day.

What is it made of?

All ingredients are 100% Natural:

Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Beeswax, Pure Essential Oil.

Do you like the feel and smell of the product?

Leaving the product on the beard grants you the best results. It doesn't leave any left over residue and doesn't feel oily, which was a concern for the hubby.  The smell was not too strong and resembled a manly smell. I smile while typing this because most men don't want to smell like flowers... on the other hand, some do.

Wifey's opinion:

Considering that I get to kiss this softer face I give it a thumbs up! This will make a great birthday or father's day gift!


Occasionally, I will do product reviews in exchange for a free product. The opinions and personal beliefs are my own and I believe in the trust and integrity of honest blogging.

A couple months back I introduced Bella to I hemmed and hawed about using it but I though "hey free trial, why not". I have been looking for something to engage my little learner and help her prepare since she was getting most of her pre-k education at home.

I have to say.... I am AMAZED at the number of activities and resources this program provides. She could play all day and still not exhaust the activities! We use it on our iPad, which seems to be easier for Bella than using the computer mouse.

Here is how it works....

You select the level you want to start your child at (tot,1,2,3,4,5,6). I started Bella at 3 but changed it to 4. I felt she was more advance and I didn't want her to get bored. You start off in the class room and navigate from there.

Your child follows The Learning Path, while completing several activities per lesson. The activities include coloring pages, puzzles, books, games, and more. Level 4 has 72 lessons to work through.

Each activity gets awarded a certain amount of tickets that you can use to shop with(imaginary). Bella loves spending her tickets on collecting fish for her aquarium and new clothes!
There are endless activities and things to do! I was amazed at the amount of information my child could learn! There is The Basics section which allows you to specifically focus on certain areas. This one's my favorite.

Your child can also take a virtual trip to The Farm or The Zoo! How cool is that!?! Each one has all sorts of information on the animals and corresponding activities for the kids to complete.

You also get the opportunity to teach responsibility while your child takes care of their virtual fish!
Eww, fishy gunk... better clean that up!

I could go on and on about how much this program offers... I think you get the picture with the screen shots:)! But really I encourage you to try it for yourself! What's great is that the first month is free!!!! So there is no risk to try!

Tons of activities and resources to teach your kiddos
Parents progress tracker to help you track your childs progess
My child loves it!!!

For the younger kids, the usage of a computer mouse can be difficult(I would suggest using the iPad app instead)
