River Peak Apothecary
Adventure Pack • Beard Wax
About This Precious…
You have been in the wilds of the Realm for a full turn of the world. The first buds of spring gave way to the full unfurling of summer, to the slow crisp decline of autumn, to the soft white silence of winter and back again.
With every turn, your Adventure Pack tins of Fjordmist, Dragonsea, Hearthstone and Frostwood beard waxes have kept your beard and mustache well-tamed, and drenched in the scents of the season. The cuts and scrapes left upon you by the brush and brambles you pass are soothed and protected by Spiritbrook. Your dry hands and lips are quenched by Deepwell.
You may be in the wilds, but you are far from lost.
About The Formula
FOR THE STYLING OF THE BEARD
In the opinion of the barbers of Beardsgaard, the pinnacle of moustache wax is Captain Fawcett, and none other should bother trying to surpass its perfection. But there is also a place for beard wax, bulking up finer beards, and offering light styling to all beards.
This one uses beeswax from a historic family farm, non-pore clogging Shea butter, and our secret weapon, Oat oil. This liquid silk of a carrier oil banishes dry and flaky skin under a beard, has excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, absorbs slowly, and lasts all day.
Is This Even The Right Product For You?
What does your beard need most?
- Moisture ~ You need beard oil, beard butter, or both
- Control ~ You need beard wax
- Both ~ You need beard balm, but the addition of beard butter would not be untoward
Do you like warm scents or cool scents?
- Warm (wood, spice, citrus, etc.) ~ You’re looking for Dragonsea or Hearthstone
- Cool (aquatic, herbs, moss, etc.) ~ You’re looking for Fjordmist, Frostwood, or perhaps Spiritbrook
- Light to Unscented ~ You’re looking for Spiritbrook or Deepwell
Do you like bright scents or deep scents?
- Bright (citrus, florals, etc) ~ You’re looking for Fjordmist or Dragonsea
- Deep (earth, woods, etc.) ~ You’re looking for Hearthstone or Frostwood
About the Inspiration
When we made all the seasons into a year’s worth of beard wax scents (plus a lightly herbal one for sensitive skin, and an unscented), it quickly became apparent that we would need to make a sampler pack. But alas, we dislike boring names, so we called it by a more proper name: an Adventure Pack.

Tips & Directions
For more control, work a small amount of wax (varies depending on beard size, about the size of a pea) between fingers until no clumps remain and smooth over the surface of your fully dry and styled mustache, beard, or both. For softer styling, use as you would a beard balm, on a damp beard. Use as often as desired.
The easiest way to get it out of the jar is by scraping forward with the back of your fingernail or thumbnail. Great for mustache training - apply to the lip line first, middle of the lips outward, working through mustache with fingers, then combing through.
