Developed ‘for men by men’ NKD truth CBD-infused speciality Oud fragranced shaving bar has been developed using premium quality ingredients for that luxury feel and close shave, helping to both cleanse and hydrate the skin
What is Oud? Oud was traditionally used as an incense burnt in mosques to give a relaxing, rich quality to the environment. It is now one of the most expensive scents in the world due to its scarcity.
Oud is found in a unique resin produced by the Agar tree as a reaction to any infection from phialophora parasitica. It is a treacle-like, potent resin which contains the essence of the tree itself and acts as a protectant from the infection. The Agar tree grows naturally in the Middle East, but over-processing has endangered it and now only limited supplies of the essence are allowed.
Plantations of Agar trees in other areas, as a conservation effort, are said to vary in scent due to climate.
What Does Oud Smell Like? Oud has a very warm and woody scent. It is often said to conjure up memories of subtle cedarwood embers. Oud is quite a strong smell if over-used, so they keep things subtle. It’s a truly unique scent, and a huge favourite of ours – which is why it was one of their founding scents.

I recently tried the NKD 30mg CBD Speciality Shaving Soap from Glow Bar LDN, and it was an interesting experience, especially considering I'm going through Menopause.
First of all, the shaving soap's unique feature is its CBD content, which caught my attention as I've been exploring natural remedies to manage the symptoms of Menopause. The 30mg of CBD seemed promising, and I was curious to see how it would work.
What I enjoyed about the shaving soap was its luxurious feel and scent. The Oud fragrance was rich and exotic, making the shaving experience feel like a little pampering session. The soap lathered up nicely and provided a smooth and comfortable shave, which was great for my sensitive skin during this hormonal phase.
The inclusion of CBD seemed to have a calming effect on my skin, which I appreciated, as Menopause can bring about some skin irritations. It left my skin feeling soft and moisturized, and I noticed a reduction in redness and post-shave irritation.
Another aspect I liked was the 100g size, which meant it would last for quite a while, even with regular use. It seemed like a good value for money considering the amount of product you get.
Now, let's talk about the impact on Menopause symptoms. While the CBD-infused soap did provide a soothing effect during shaving, I can't say that it had any significant impact on other Menopause-related symptoms I experience. It's essential to remember that Menopause is a complex phase with various physical and emotional changes, and relying solely on a shaving soap to address all those issues would be unrealistic.
One thing that I did not enjoy so much was the price. It's on the higher side for a shaving soap, and I wondered if the added CBD content contributed significantly to the cost. If you're on a tight budget, this might be a consideration.
In conclusion, the NKD 30mg CBD Speciality Shaving Soap with Oud fragrance is a luxurious and calming shaving experience. The CBD content offers soothing effects, particularly on sensitive skin during Menopause. While I enjoyed the product's performance and scent, I don't see it as a comprehensive solution for all Menopause symptoms. If you're looking for a little indulgence during shaving and appreciate the potential benefits of CBD, it could be worth a try, but keep in mind that it's not a cure-all for Menopause.
