Best Products to Maintain your Beard Style and Grow
1. The Gentlemen’s Beard Bay Rum Beard Oil.
If you’re looking for a quality beard grooming product, this is the one for you!
The list of ingredients includes: Extra virgin coconut oil, which contains lots of Vitamin E to condition and moisturizes your skin, stimulates hair growth, and even act as a natural sunscreen.
Evening primrose and added Vitamin E oils to reduce itching, protect your skin, and prevent dandruff. The amber-colored glass bottle protects what’s inside from UV sunlight, ensuring that the natural oils last longer without degrading. The scent is mild and pleasant, with a manly fragrance you can’t help but love.
People familiar with the classic “Tropical Bay Rum” scent may find that this product doesn’t exactly match what you’re used to, but it has a very mild “pina colada” smell.
For those who hate overpowering smells, it’s a good option to consider. It won’t drown out the scent of your cologne. This creation is absorbed beautifully into your skin and hair, and it applies easily: Add a few drops to your hand and rub into the hair.
If you need help getting unruly facial hair under control, this is an excellent oil to
do just that. At $20+ for a 1-ounce bottle, this is one of the priciest products on the list. But if you want only premium quality, it’s worth the $20+ you’ll spend on it!
2. The Gentlemen’s Beard Oil and Conditioner Softener
The ingredients in this grooming product include organic argan seed oil to moisturize and condition your facial hair while improving skin health – also prevents split ends, organic evening primrose oil, and Vitamin E to nourish your skin and hair and reduce dandruff, And organic jojoba to help fight acne, regulate the production of the skin oil, and promote hair growth.
This mixture of all-organic ingredients makes this one of the best products on our list. It’s free of parabens, fillers, artificial ingredients, additives, and GMO products, making it one of the most natural products around.
Some users have complained that it leaves a greasy residue, which is the result of the heavier argan oil. However, the thicker texture makes it easier to get your unruly facial hair under control. And with no scent, you’ll find that this creation is perfect for those who like to use milder cologne.
At just under $20 for a 1-ounce bottle, it’s a slightly pricey product. People with thick, heavy beards will go through the stuff VERY fast.
You’ll love it if you have a trimmed beard and want to keep it groomed and looking good. Considering its organic ingredients, it’s a good value for the price.
3. Honest Amish Beard Balm Leave-in Conditioner
Starting with the ingredients we have Virgin argan oil to promote healthy hair and skin, fight acne, and reduce split ends. Grapeseed oil to tighten your skin, moisturize, reduce aging, and combat dandruff. Avocado, pumpkin seed, and apricot kernel oils to infuse your skin with antioxidants and vitamins, and soften your hair. Shea and cocoa butter to soften the hair and moisturize your skin.
All of the ingredients are organic and vegan-friendly.
Be warned: DO NOT open the product immediately after receiving it. The blue note says to let it cool off, as the product will liquefy if melted. This means you have to keep it in a cool place in order to use it.
Some users have complained that it leaves a very greasy film, though this problem is solved by simply using less. The texture (sort of like wet sand) may feel weird at first, but once you work it well, it will liquefy and be easy to apply.
The primary smell of this balm is anise (black licorice), but it’s not so strong as to overpower other scents. You’ll find that it’s a fairly pleasant smell, one that’s easy to get used to as you wear the product daily.
This is where this product suffers! Each tin costs $13, but they’re very small. You’ll get maybe 30 uses from the tin if you apply it with a stingy hand, but those who use it liberally will have to stock up regularly. Still, if you want only organic (and vegan-friendly), it’s a good option for you.
4. Leven Rose Beard Oil and Leave-in Conditioner
The ingredients in this product include Organic jojoba to fight acne, manage skin oil production, and cleanse your skin.
Organic Moroccan argan oil to moisturize and condition, promote healthy hair and skin and reduce inflammation. Organic rosehip to provide the Vitamin C your skin needs to produce collagen. Organic sandalwood essential oil to relieve itching and prevent beardruff.
All of the ingredients are fully organic, non-GMO, and vegan-friendly.
The consistency of this product is thinner than others, meaning it will absorb into your skin and hair more quickly. For most, this is a good thing, but people with very dry skin often find that it absorbs too fast–leaving hair unruly.
This is one of the best hair softener products around, and it will leave your facial hair silky smooth. Although, you may have to apply a few times a day to maintain your desired softness. The smell is so mild so as to be undetected.
It’s good for those who want to avoid strong-scented products that interfere with the smell of their cologne or body spray. At $16 per bottle, it’s a reasonably priced product.
However, the fact that you have to apply it a few times per day (if you have a big beard and want to keep it soft) means you’ll go through the 1-ounce bottle fairly quickly.
5. Smooth Viking Beard Balm
The ingredients in this product include: Argan oil to moisturize, condition, and promote healthy hair and skin – also fights acne and reduces your risk of cracked/chapped lips, Sweet almond oil to reduce the viscosity of the product, restore healthy skin and hair pH, and prevent split ends, Castor oil to stimulate hair growth and nourish the hair on your face, Shea butter, beeswax, and avocado to hold the hair firmly in place while conditioning it.
The ingredients are all-natural and the U.S. made. This is a great product not just for moisturizing, but also for grooming. It can help to get wild, thick, and coarse beards under control. It will soften and make it easier to comb/manage your whiskers, and it will hold the hair firmly in place.
It may take a bit of time to learn how to apply it properly, but once you get the hang of it, it’s like the perfect “gel” or “wax” to keep your facial hair looking good.
The smell on this moisturizer is fairly mild and neutral, though a number of reviewers complained about it. They couldn’t put their finger on what exactly the balm smelled like, but they disliked the scent.
At just under $15 for a 2-ounce tin, this is one of the best-priced items on our list. You’ll get a quality grooming product that will moisturize and condition your facial hair, and at a price, you’ll be happy to pay every time.
