About Bravo Sierra
Hey soldier, are you looking for some heavy personal hygiene artillery that will keep your birthday suit fresh and ready for parade every day? Or perhaps you want products that you can trust aren’t going to rain fire on the environment? Whatever the case, you should check out this Bravo Sierra review.
Bravo Sierra sells personal care products that help support active and veteran members of the US military. In fact, the brand’s partnership with M.W.R. ensures that 5% of all sales are put towards quality of life programs for service members, veterans, and their families.
Better yet, their products are actually field-tested by some of those frontline heroes to guarantee the formulas and packaging hold up against the dirt, grime, or excess bodily fluids that your active lifestyle entails.
Though the brand may be young, it’s already grown by leaps and bounds. Bravo Sierra currently has a following of 11.5K on Facebook and over 330K on Instagram, and it’s been featured in such media outlets as Forbes, Esquire, and every grunt’s favorite barracks reading, Fashion Week Daily.
But is this brand as BS as its military-lingo namesake, or is it actually ready to step up and serve? This Bravo Sierra review will give you all the intel you need about the brand, its bestselling products, promotions, customer feedback, and more to help you determine if that’s an affirmative or a negative.
Overview of Bravo Sierra
When Bravo Sierra co-founders Justin Guilbert and Benjamin Bernet set up camp in New York City in 2018, they wanted to avoid the well-beaten path of catering to millennials that a lot of self-care startups tread these days, even as they sought to ensure that their materials and manufacturing were as eco-friendly as possible.
While Bravo Sierra products are available to anybody who’s in the market for quality self-care products, the brand’s primary demographic is US military personnel and their families. It hires veterans, supplies complimentary products and discounts to army personnel, and donates 5% of its total revenue to official support organizations for soldiers, such as the MWR and USO.
The brand’s Battalion program also allows active and veteran military members to field-test new products—after all, if these items can hold up to battlefield conditions, chances are they’ll work just fine for the average joe.
All Bravo Sierra products and packaging are made in the US. All products contain vegan formulas that are not tested on animals, are housed in recyclable packaging, and are free of all those unpleasant chemicals with long, tongue-twisting names you can’t hope to pronounce, like parabens, phthalates, phenoxyethanol, and so on.
Before this Bravo Sierra review gives you the full briefing on this brand, let’s quickly put you in the picture by running over a quick summary of its most notable highlights.

Bravo Sierra Review
You can’t head out to seize the day without making sure you’re ready for action. In our Bravo Sierra review below, we highlight the brand’s deodorants, shampoos, grooming and beauty products, sunscreen, and wipes, all of them made with good old-fashioned American engineering and tested by your boys and girls on the front lines.
Bravo Sierra Deodorant Review
All right maggots, eyes front and center! Do you want to spend your days sweating bullets and soiling your shirt armpits? Do you want to smell like a pigsty and send your comrades running for cover? Well, if you’re going to make it out there without your BO bombarding everyone’s sinuses, you’ll want to roll on some Bravo Sierra Deodorant.
This aluminum and baking soda-free deodorant is made with sweat-absorbing Brazilian cassava root extract, this 3.2 oz. bar will have you smelling fresh and keep those pits dry all day long. You can thank the little army of probiotics included in the formula for that: they’ll mop up those odor-releasing bacteria with no problem.
And if you want to spice up your scent, you can get this deodorant in citrus & cedarwood, sandalwood & fig, and tonka bean & lemon. Or, if you’re going on a covert op, you can suit up in the original unscented version.
A one-time purchase for one of these will cost you $9, but you can knock a quarter or two off of that price if you opt to get two or three at once. And if you’re looking for a regular supply drop, you can also subscribe to receive a new order every 1, 2, or 3 months, and get a 10% discount.
Bravo Sierra Dry Shampoo Review
Whether you’re in an actual war zone or just making your way across the battlefield of life, dirt, grime, and oil are enemies that are always at the ready. But sometimes, you’re not so fortunate as to have clean water on hand when you want to give your hair a touch-up. For those situations, you need the Bravo Sierra Dry Shampoo.
Yes, you heard that right: dry shampoo. The classified key ingredient here, tapioca starch, absorbs the muck that gets stuck to your hair and scalp without the aid of H2O, keeping your hair clean until you can give it a proper wash. And, if you find your scalp is running hot from all the friction, the menthol-infused formula will help cool it down.
Operating instructions are below:
- Work into hair and scalp.
A 5 oz. can will cost you $11, which you can reduce a bit if you buy multiples. And if you’re man enough to subscribe, you can knock that down to just under $10 per item.
Bravo Sierra Hair Grooming Paste Review
Do you think you can head to your 9-to-5 in the civilian world with hair that looks like it just went through tumble-dry? Negatory. You need to get those bangs up to code and keep those cowlicks in line. For those whose hair seems untamable, give the Bravo Sierra Hair Grooming Paste a whirl.
This Swiss Army Knife of hair gels gives any type of hair long-lasting texture without any trace of grease or other residue. So there’s none of that heavy, sticky feeling that you get with so many other gels.
One 3 oz. tube will cost you just $9, with a slightly reduced price if you buy a reload or two. Or you can keep them coming with a subscription and save yourself 10% per order.
Bravo Sierra Antibacterial Body Wipes Review
You never know when or where germs are going to be lying in wait for you, and you’re not always going to have soap and clean water close by when you need to disinfect. So when you’re out and about, make sure that you’re packing some Bravo Sierra Antibacterial Body Wipes.
Each individually wrapped wipe is made with biodegradable material for easy and ecologically safe disposal. A simple one-minute rubdown is all it takes for the alcohol-free formula to kill off 99.9% of germs and bacteria hitching a ride on your hands, and the skin-calming mix of aloe vera, ginseng, and blue algae will leave them feeling smooth and refreshed.
You can pick up a pack of 10 Antibacterial Body Wipes for $10. And you know the drill: buy two or three at once to pinch a few pennies off that price, or take advantage of that 10% discount you get with a subscription.
Bravo Sierra Sunscreen Review
I don’t know but I’ve been told, the sun’s UV can really scold (your skin). If you can’t beat that nasty heat, the field medic you’ll surely meet. Sound off! There’s nothing worse than being out on assignment in a hot, dry climate under those punishing rays, so slather on some Bravo Sierra Sunscreen.
This high-impact skin-shielder packs 30 SPF to keep you safe from harmful UVA and UVB light. It also lacks the chemical smell, sticky texture, and distractingly bright shine of other brands, so you can hit the beach without looking like some oiled-up pro wrestler.
A one-time purchase will cost you $13, with the usual reduced price for multiple cartridges. And, yes, the 10% subscription discount applies here too. Now make like the boys from Top Gun and go play some volleyball.
Bravo Sierra Lip Balm Review
Have you been out and about all day without a drop of hydration? Got hurting, cracked lips that you fear might break apart if you try to form a single word? Sounds like you need to make a tactical strike on those kissers with the Bravo Sierra Lip Balm. (Get it? “Balm” sounds like “bomb.” Yeah, you get it.)
Each stick comes loaded with Amazonian murumuru butter (sit down, Steve Trevor, we’re not talking Wonder Woman-type Amazons). This stuff is chock full of fatty acids to help keep your lips hydrated for the long haul. You also don’t have to choke on any scent or flavor like other sticks—it just gives your lips a nice matte finish.
You should know the drill by now: buy one Lip Balm for $5, two or three for a bit less, or subscribe for 10% off.
Bravo Sierra Starter Set Review
When you’re heading out into the field, you need to make sure your kit has all the essentials. If you’re a snot-nosed FNG (look it up) who needs some basic training in proper grooming, you need the Bravo Sierra Starter Set.
This three-in-one kit includes the Deodorant and Hair Grooming Paste, which you’ve already been briefed on. But you also get the Hair/Body Wash & Shave, a 3 oz. can of multipurpose munitions that can work as a soap, a shampoo, or a shaving cream.
Using all three of these is the perfect way to start your day:
- Use the Hair/Body Wash & Shave in the shower to get clean
- Keep that BO away and your shirt clean by applying the Deodorant
- Style with the Hair Grooming Paste, and you’re good to go
Brace yourself: no subscriptions or ordering in bulk for this one. The Starter Set is a cut-and-dried $40.
Who Is Bravo Sierra For?
Bravo Sierra prides itself on providing affordable, high-quality self-care products to active and inactive US military members and their families. Their target demographic is pretty clear given that they have over 2,000 people in active service testing these products in training or deployment conditions.
That said, the brand doesn’t discriminate against those with no military background: weekend warriors and straight-up civvies alike can also benefit from these products. In short, Bravo Sierra is for any true-blue American looking for effective, affordable, and environmentally friendly personal hygiene solutions, and/or a way to pay tribute to the troops.
Are Bravo Sierra products Made In The USA?
All-natural ingredients, recyclable containers, and most of all, that troop connection—it only makes sense that this brand would do its manufacturing in the US. Granted, sometimes it’s compelled to call on some foreign allies when releasing a new product, but that’s only until a local partner can be found.
This Bravo Sierra review found that the majority of the brand’s manufacturing is done in California, Georgia, and New Jersey.
