Beardo Products Review


Disclaimer – This is my personal review based on my experience with Beardo products which I have been using since last 2 months now.

Today, I will be reviewing three products,

  1. Beardo Beard Wash (Black Velvette) ,
  2. Beardo Beard Oil (The Black Velvette) and
  3. Beardo Charcoal Activated Soap.

Now, before we start, let me bring to your notice that there aren’t many products in Market for Mooch and Beard. And a lot of products available online are sold at such a huge price because they are either imported by dealers in wholesale and sold at high price or some shitty products which can spoil your beard.

So, whoever Gillette is, tell her bitch, Beardo is here.

Prior to using Beardo, I was using Ustraa and MisterMan Beard products. They were the only product available in India at least to my knowledge. Beside these, we had to rely on Shampoos, Conditioners and beard wax. I even ended up making myself a DIY wax and Oil using YouTube. Looking at the increasing fashion of growing a beard and maintaining it among men, needed some serious products catering to this demand. Then I came across Beardo. They have such a huge collection with various choice of fragrances and stuff.

Well as you are aware, beard is the new sexy but looking at the Indian Beards, they are more like pubic hair when grown to lengths (Blame it on the pollution and humidity and whatever you want). But it is the truth! Right? With the earlier products of Ustraa and Misterman, I wasn’t very happy, to be honest. I used Ustraa for sometime and it was not bad but for long term, I wanted something more serious. It has been 7 years since I clean shaved, only trimmed. Ustraa products didn’t seem more feasible for maybe my beard type.

So after a big research, I finally chose Beardo products. I bought it 2 months ago and have been using it since then. I am a cynical kind of person, so you will get both pros and cons below. Stay tuned…

Let’s start with what finished first..

  1. Beardo Charcoal Activated Soap.

19367219_1173376479433511_5262036821155512320_n

Well, I travel a lot and most of my commuting is on my Enfield which means a lot of dirt and pollution all over my body. So, I was on a look out for a soap that could help me replenish what gets lost. Apart from charcoal, it is written that ingredients like coconut oil (for cleansing), sugar (nature’s scrubber), castor oil (skin tightening), aloe vera (freshness and moisturising), cedarwood oil (for freshness) and patchouli oil (for disinfectant properties) as well as glycerin (for glowing skin) are present in this soap.

On a personal front, I liked the soap. It really did help me get rid of dirt and grime. It also leaves a pleasant fragrance (manly enough). Though the soap could have been a little stronger in what it does (charcoal content).

VerdictBuy it here if you are looking for a nice charcoal alternative to your Dove or Lifebuoy.

2. Beardo Beard Oil (The Black Velvette)

The beard and mooch tonic is also a great product to use. I personally loved the old school and black velvette aroma. It is really refreshing and leaves the beard ready to be groomed and leaves your lady drooling. It leaves your beard smooth and moisturized. Beardo oil is definitely recommended.

And last but not the least, the beard wash is amazing. It is better than Ustraa one because it doesn’t dry out your beard. It keeps it conditioned. Apart from leaving a pleasant aroma and great texture, it really makes the hair tangle free and removes any dirt or garbage stuck in there. Only catch it, do remember to groom it further using comb and drier to make it straight. But anyways, that is something you will have to do yourself.

I still use my DIY products but these products from Beardo have really eased my pains in the butt.

Verdict

Go ahead and use the products. It’s better to have a groomed beard rather than pubic hair on the face. Oh yes! I know you know what I mean! Looking forward to use more products. Will review rest and post soon. Till then! Have fun with the mooch & beard! GROW!

RE Classic or RE Thunderbird


The biggest question asked around is which Enfield to buy. The same question was in my mind couple of years ago when I had to buy myself a new RE. I did some research, did rides on both of them and finally here is my take on which one you should buy.

So, Thunderbird or Classic?

maxresdefault

Engine – 

Talking about the engine, both of them come in 350 CC and 500 CC variants. The Classic 350 cc generates maximum Power of 19.8 bhp @ 5250 rpm and Torque of 28 Nm @ 4000 rpm whereas Classic 500 maximum Power of 27.2 bhp @ 5250 rpm and Torque of 41.3 Nm @ 4000. The same goes for the Thunderbird 350 and 500 cc variants. Hence, there is no difference in the engine. The biggest difference is in the fuel supply system. The 350 cc of both have a carburetor while the 500 cc ones have EFI which is Digital.

Now, going by my experience, I would any day prefer carburetor over EFI in the RE because we all know how RE’s R&D department works. I have many friends and fellow riders who faced a lot of issues in the EFI which costs a bomb to replace (any mechanic will not even touch it). Many of them have replaced the EFI with carburetor.

Comfort – 

It depends on what kind of rider you are, for city limits, classic is more comfortable… add a highway and TB is more comfortable. Classic’s maneuverability is better in traffic than TB but it all comes down to your riding posture and riding technique. (Do a test ride for that). Seats, handlebars and accessories are all available out there to make things comfortable.

After market accessories and service – 

I would rate both almost equally. Because as on today, tons of accessories are available in the market both of the motorcycles. The classic might have a 1 point advantage though simple based on the fact – it’s just too common now. Everyone has a classic for crying out loud! Even those pseudo and kid riders who need a bullet to show off! You know who I am talking about, right? Yep, those!

4

Style – 

Now, the biggest difference is in the looks. The Classic is the new version of the old retro RE look. The one called “Bult” in Punjab. The stance is that of a macho street motorcycle. The Classic 350 is the unsung hero of the Royal Enfield range. It is the Classic 350 that makes up the numbers since it is the most selling motorcycle for RE. Its retro styling combined with the relatively affordable price tag have made it the highest-selling RE model so far. Plus it has most re-sale value than the Thunderbird.

On the other hand, the thunderbird is sold by RE as a cruiser. Where classic has stayed in the same shape since it was launched (except the new colours), the T-bird (as it is called) has received many uplifts and facelifts. It was first launched in 2000, then first update came in 2009 with the UCE (unit construction engine) and then in 2012 another update came in featuring a teardrop shaped fuel tank, digital instruments and fuel gauge and a projector headlamp. Additionally, the motorcycle gets an LED tail light and a few other cosmetic enhancements which is the current setup. Personally speaking, the models after 2013 are better than the old ones. The 2011 to 2013 had major oil issues. The T-bird is being sold as a cruiser which I think is ridiculous. It may be a semi-cruiser but nothing more than that

The major upgrades of TB from Classic are – LED lights, Projector Headlamp, Rear Disc Brakes (which come in some of the classic models too), Digital instrument panel with trip, mileage, etc (the fuel gauge sucks, trust me). My personal favourite is the emergency parking lights which help during night rides. Also, beware the headlamp on the TB comes with non-removable mirror so if anything happens (rare) you will have to either go for aftermarket products or change whole headlamp setup. The other thing I liked in the TB is the black engine 😛 

Speaking of which, next is. ..

Colors –

Now, one thing RE has mastered in all these years (wish they mastered in updating engine and build material and design) is the color of the motorcycles.

I have never seen other motorcycle brand offering fucking so many colours. Every year there is a new colour. Don’t believe me? Check this out –

Colors for Classic – 17 colors! Beat that!

  1. Squadron Blue (500cc)
  2. Desert Storm (500cc)
  3. Chrome (500cc) – It has 3 sub colours – Black, Graphite, Green
  4. Battle Green (500cc – Only available for the defence services or outside India)
  5. Normal 500cc – Silver, Black, Tan
  6. Normal 350 cc (Fuck me!) – Ash, Chestnut, Lagoon, Silver, Black, Redditch Red, Redditch Green, Redditch blue

Colors for T-Bird – 10 colors! Still not less!

  1. Stone (500cc and 350 cc)  – Matt Black. (I ride this one)
  2. Marine (500cc and 350 cc) – Blue
  3. Lightning (500cc and 350 cc) – Glossy Graphite
  4. Flicker (500cc and 350 cc) – Glossy black
  5. Asphalt (500cc and 350 cc) – kinda green

32

 Final verdict –

At the end it all comes down to one thing –  how you want to ride the RE. If you are looking for daily commute and less long rides, I would suggest go for Classic 350. If you are looking for more long rides and occasional city rides, I would prefer TB 350.

If you want to look macho (lol) and want that retro look, go for Classic and if you want to stand out a little and need higher stance with a bit off-road capability, go for TB. TB does better off-road, personally speaking. Take it anywhere.

If you need more power go for 500cc but I would rather suggest buy Himalayan for 500 cc bracket. Both classic and Thunderbird in 500cc suck. Load of issues.

In the end, ride safe and drink water!

Chai and sutta on a dhaba will work best! Get out on the road…

7 things women need to give their men a break from


Disclaimer – This post is based on some personal experiences and on what I have seen around while observing couples. I rarely go to malls or crowded markets but whenever I go, I have seen some horrendous examples.

For all the women and men who have males partners out there, some points to note which you should avoid or not do to your male partners. It will be beneficial for your relationships.

And all the men reading, make sure you that your partners read this.

  1. Shopping – Isn’t it obvious? 99% men hate shopping with their girlfriends and wives. The only thing we can shop for, are our own stuff, most of which we can do online now. Thanks to eCommerce website. fed-up-man-carrying-partners-shopping-bags-city-street-walking-30211263
  2. Choose colors – Roses are red, Violets are blue. Brown is the color, Of elephant poo. By now you would have understood that for men red is red so when you say “Baby, that’s not red, that’s Cherry (dipped in water, shining at 3:24 PM) ‘Red'”, trust me, it doesn’t make a freaking sense to us. Let red be red. Couple choosing paint for painting
  3. Out Late with friends – Do you think his parents allowed him late night outs with friends? No! They used to call him up every 10 minutes starting at 10:00 PM asking where the hell is he and asking him to find new parents if he is not back in 10 minutes. So, it is totally fine he is out with his friends once in a while. He is just relaxing and de-stressing, not cheating on you.miller-lite-2-new
  4. Boys Talk – Trust me, you are putting him in the most embarrassing situation when you ask him what he and his friends talk about. I am sure, he never interfered in your girls talk ever. In case he did, maybe because you intended him to ask. Leave the boys talk to boys. You maybe his best friend but their are topics which will never be discussed with you. Also, we don’t have much topics to talk about like you do. So cut them some slack.
  5. Mind the word – For men, nothing means nothing, I am fine means I am fine and ok means ok. So, don’t freaking be a ass and keep asking on “what happened?, what happened? You won’t tell me? You don’t wanna tell me? Fine, don’t tell me.” WTF! Just change the topic and it will save you from his straight face unless you want him to make up a lie and tell you something which never happened. 24dd746ea63542807560b891c5e5aae8

  6. Don’t keep an archive/reference folder – In an argument, don’t look in your freaking archive folders to bring up old and obsolete issues. Pls, don’t so that. It’s irritating and will push the guy away. It’s past, it’s gone. Chuck it!f4c1565bc6ab4bd6fd7127864bbc0824
  7. Whatsapp Read/Online Status – This is a personal one. Lol! If the message has been read or the status in online but your message has not been read, don’t take it personal. There might be an issue. He might be lying on the road in his own blood and trying to call someone but the fucking whatsapp got opened! So before sending 23 odd messages of blame, have some patience!

     

    In the nutshell, follow these rules to be happy and productive couple. And don’t kill me if it doesn’t work. I am just the writer who observed you!

Be patient, Be compassionate. Don’t be insecure in 10 seconds.

Think about it!!

And being said, try to take it in a humorous way!

A dangerous species called Human


It’s been raining since couple of hours now, sitting outside with cigarette and thinking about Orlando and Paris attacks. And actually all the attacks lately happening across the globe along with crimes.
What is the root cause of this issue? Humans. Not a eureka moment, I know but why?

image

Is it just religion? Nope. Above religion there is a very powerful thing. That’s called Money.

And not just hard money but soft one too. Here I mention soft money as things like showing off assets, social status, etc..

Money & Religion – Two things for which we have gone insane and become retards.

Funny shit is, both were made for humans but it seems now that we were made for these fucking things.

The money has created this social divide which has grown so apart it cannot be filled up. Rich will be richer and poor will be poorer. No economic policy or reform can correct it now. Some countries will flourish and others will definitely perish. Human organ trade, trafficking, slaves, etc .. are all outcomes of this divide.

But how will this earth continue to function and how will money flow?
Here comes religion into picture.
I want to make sure that you do not get me wrong in next few lines. Religion is not evil, it is human who is flawed.

So to keep the channels open, come few humans who, in the name of religion don’t give hope but create an illusion in the mind of the poor that it’s the rich who is taking away everythig from them. For this they need to strike.

For example, a BMW stops on the road, few people showing off the money, step out and unable to tackle the sun, try to find their AC rooms. Watching this are few poor guys who spend whole day in the sun. This guy wants the same things and all the money but since he lacks either skill or opportunity or a rich father/mother. So what happens? This frustration leads him on the path of evil. Yes, humans are that sick.

90% of the crimes in the world are based on this divide and perks of having money. Psychology of the human brain is complex yet simple.
Everyone is selfish.

On the other hand, religious outfits (radical humans) tend to use this divide to expand it further. They exploit the minds and get things done. Those who don’t know shit about their religion begin to fall prey.

What is the solution? None.
There is no solution to this. Because whatever I say will have no effect on you. Like this rain. It will pass in few more minutes and you will be back to what you were doing.

I am amazed you even reached this point and still reading. Coz poor won’t be able to read this. You might come on the rich side. Hence you will not change.

Go on, head to that club or spend huge amounts of money on religion. Don’t dare give it to some good cause because the gap should be more apart.

Right?

Think about it…. .

Alimony & Dowry – Evils attached!


Don’t kill me if our views don’t match because if you kill me, I will haunt you forever and be a pain in your ass and I am sure you don’t want that. Right?

So, moving on … In the midst of all the hue and cry on my Facebook wall over a simple question of Dowry and Alimony, if they are same or not and should be legal or not! I would like to thanks all my friends who contributed and showed what you all think about it.

I know some of you who are against dowry will definitely take it or give it in the name of Society and Parental pressure, which according to me is “Bullshit”! And yes, giving gifts is dowry as well (In case you didn’t know).

Now! My views?

1369371380144165

Alimony and Dowry!  They aren’t same.

Starting with Dowry, by now the above paragraph might have given you some idea of what I feel about it. It is outright disease which is eating us inside out. As per an article – Dowry is an ancient custom, and its existence may well predate records of it. Dowries continue to be expected, and demanded as a condition to accept a marriage proposal, in some parts of the world, mainly in parts of AsiaNorth Africa and the Balkans. In some parts of the world, disputes related to dowry sometimes result in acts of violence against women, including killings and acid attacks. The custom of dowry is most common in cultures that are strongly patrilineal and that expect women to reside with or near their husband’s family (patrilocality). Dowries have a long history in Europe, South Asia, India, Africa and other parts of the world.

It is good to see people coming out and speaking about dowry, but in my whole lifetime, I haven’t seen one wedding which had no links to dowry at all. And I am not talking about rural weddings. I am talking about FAT INDIAN Weddings!! And not just Punjabi weddings but all kinds of castes (I hate fucking caste system as well but that topic is for some other day).

The only reason why it’s being termed as big topic in India is probably we are waking up now & it’s all over news. My respect to all those women who opposed it and broke those marriages.

And my middle finger to all those men, father in laws, mother in laws, fathers and mothers who agreed for dowry.

On a serious note, it’s the biggest issue in India because here, a woman is worst enemy of the other.

All the mothers and mother in laws are at fault. I hope the new generation mothers and mother in laws won’t be such a pain in the ass. Plus these are the same aunties who force marriage down your throat and later comment on how many gold and cash you took or gave.

But just talking about it won’t solve the problem, where does the issue lie? When was the last time you saw a girl getting married to a guy who is socially and financially weaker to her? NONE! The men these days are judged on the basis of money he earns or has, size of his house and size of his car. I understand one doesn’t want their daughter to spend life with no luxuries but isn’t that also a kind of dowry? I know this can be associated with Bride Price or Dower but those are different than this. I have explained those below.

For now!! Remember, NOBODY gives a fuck about LOVE!  (If you do, drink some water and cool down)

rebellion

Many of you might not know but there are two other practices – of bride price and dower. While bride price or bride service is a payment by the groom or his family to the bride’s parents, dowry is the wealth transferred from the bride’s family to the groom or his family, ostensibly for the bride. Similarly, dower is the property settled on the bride herself, by the groom at the time of marriage, and which remains under her ownership and control. In Islam, this concept is called Mahr which is a mandatory payment, in the form of money or possessions paid or promised to pay by the groom, or by groom’s father, to the bride at the time of marriage, which legally becomes her property. While the mahr is often money, it can also be anything agreed upon by the bride such as jewelry, home goods, furniture, a dwelling or some land. Mahr is typically specified in the marriage contract signed during an Islamic marriage

Also, dowry in India may have started in Hindu culture, it’s now a part of Muslim and Christians as well. Believe or not, it is. There have been cases in all the religions. Don’t agree? Open you fucking eyes or Google it.

On the other hand, Alimony is something which is best explained by Lawyers Club India – The general perception is that the person initiating a divorce shall not be entitled to any financial support from their spouse. This, however, is not entirely true. It all depends on the financial position of the spouse. In the event of the wife not being able to sustain herself financially, or having no source of income for herself, she then is entitled to an allowance as maintenance. On the other hand, if she is earning sufficiently well for herself, she cannot claim any maintenance. Herein, an interesting question arises, ‘ whether a husband has any right to claim maintenance from his wife’. The answer is, surprisingly, in the positive. Under the Hindu Marriage Act, this provision has raised many an eyebrow. To put it simply, depending on the circumstances, a husband also has the right to ask for alimony.

As is prevalent in our Indian society, the wife is mostly a homemaker. Thereby, a major part of our female population never ventured out from the cozy comforts of her home to earn for a living. Thus, being, more relevant, the word ‘maintenance’ came to be associated with women, almost to the point of being synonymous with the weaker s*x. However, the Indian Judiciary being very fair, came to the rescue of the husband. According to Hindu Law, the husband also has the right to claim maintenance which is subject to certain conditions. In the event of the husband becoming incapacitated due to some disease or accident, and thereby, is rendered incapable of earning for a livelihood, he then has the right to claim alimony. At the same time, one should bear in mind that if the husband is an able person in every sense of the word, and yet does nothing for a living; he cannot be entitled to any maintenance. The Court of Law provides no relief to a wastrel.

Now answer my question – Why Hrithik Roshan paid Rs 380 Crores to Suzzane Khan? Why Sanjay Dutt paid Rs 8 Crores to Rhea Pillai?

There might be many more examples but were these 2 women incapable of earning? As far as I know they both had well settled businesses at the time of divorce.

Hence the concept of Alimony is subjective. Some don’t take it and some don’t get it. And there are many out there who take it even if they don’t need it.

Be it dowry or Alimony – It’s all about the fucking money. This society is all about money these days! If you say you are not, all the best living in denial and may your soul be blessed! I will see you in hell.

The solution? None. Nobody can change it. We will continue to live in denial.

Think about it….

Unless an asteroid hits the earth and kill humanity! 🙂 #JustKidding ..

Ustraa – Review


Not tested on animals, only on rascals.

This is my personal review, hence please note, this is based on my experience with Ustraa products.

Today, I will be reviewing two products, Ustraa Mooch & Beard Tonic and Ustraa Beard Wash. mooch-tonic-beard-wash

 

Before we go ahead, let me be clear that there aren’t many products in Market for Mooch and Beard. Since, the market is filled with shitty fairness and what not creams and products, Ustraa was a delight in area of grooming for Men. Whoever Gillette is, tell her bitch, Ustraa is here. 🙂 And those who wanted Men to be fair and handsome need to get a life. Prior to using Ustraa, I was using MisterMan Beard Oil (MisterMan Store). It was the only product available in India. Except this, we had to rely on Shampoos, Conditioners and beard wax. I even ended up making myself a DIY wax and Oil using Youtube. Looking at the increasing fashion of growing a beard and maintaining it among men needed some serious products catering to this demand. Ustraa hit on right notes at the right time.

The parent company,  Happily Unmarried has been in the market since a long time and has made a huge name for itself.

Everyone knows that beard looks sexy but looking at the Indian Beards, it’s more like pubic hair when grown to lengths (Blame it on the pollution and humidity and whatever you want). But it is the truth, hence Ustraa is a ray of light.

So when, Ustraa came out with the line of products, I bought it the 3rd day itself and now have been using it since then. I am a cynical kind of person, so you will get both pros and cons below. Stay tuned…

The first product I picked by the Beard wash since I was bored and fed up of using shampoos and conditioners. The product was a delight.

  • BEARD WASH:
  • Aloe Vera, Rosemary Oil, Almond Oil & Lactic Acid
  • Aqua, Decyl Glucoside, Glycerin, Coco Glucoside, Amidopropyl Betain, Ethoxylated Lanolin, Ceteareth-60 Myristyle Glycol & Essential Oils.

Apart from leaving a pleasant aroma and great texture, it really makes the hair tangle free and removes any dirt or garbage stuck in there. It make the hair soft as well, however the only negative is, the effect of the wash is not long lasting. I mean if you are a bearded biker, you need to have patience after using the product and give it time before you can jump on the saddle. Aloe Vera and Oils do make your beard feel fresh and soft. Only catch it, do remember to groom it further using comb and drier to make it straight. But anyways, that is something you will have to do yourself.

On the other hand, the beard and mooch tonic is also a great product to use. I personally loved the old school and smokehouse aroma. It is really refreshing and leaves the beard ready to be groomed and leaves you lady drooling.

  • BEARD TONIC:
  • Natural Preservatives
  • Silicone Fluid, IPM, Easttosil, Cyclomethicone, Coconut Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Jojoba Oil & Essential Oils.

The only major issue I found was the bottles. They somehow started leaking and using them while traveling was an issue for me. If the bottle seals could have been tighter and travel safe, it would have been 100% perfect product for me.

I still use my DIY products but these products from Ustraa have really eased my pains in the butt.


 

Verdict

Go ahead and use the products. It’s better to have a groomed beard rather than pubic hair on the face. Oh yes! I know you know what I mean! Looking forward to use more products. Will review rest and post soon. Till then! Have fun with the mooch & beard! GROW!

Think about it!! And do let me know your personal reviews and experience in comments below.
