Some men think that there is no need to use any product for their beards—these are the men who have wild looking beards and whose girlfriends suffer from the scratchy bristles when kissing and cuddling. They often also have dandruff in their beards and it all does not look very appealing.
A beard oil can solve all of the above problems: It makes your beard look nice; conditions it to make it feel nicer on your partner’s skin; and it helps to prevent flaky skin.
Beard oils can be scented or unscented—what you choose is up to your personal preference.
The best time of the day to apply beard oil is in the mornings after cleaning your face. After all, you want your beard to look its best before you head out for the day, but the actual reason is that the pores of your skin will be open after cleaning your face and can absorb the oil better.
The Gentlemen’s Beard Oil and Conditioner Softener
This oil has no scent and this comes as a bit of a (nice) surprise considering the natural and organic ingredients. The application is easy enough and you will not have to use a lot of oil to get great results (too much oil might even have a negative effect and make your beard look greasy).
Dandruff will be prevented if you regularly use this oil as it moisturizes the skin under your beard as well as moisturizes and tames the hair of your beard itself.
- No scent
- Natural ingredients
- Organic ingredients
- Reduces itching
- Prevents dandruff
A tad expensive
Compared to other beard oils, this one is on the expensive side—but you will love the instant results. If you have a scruffy beard and your partner is complaining about how scratchy it is, then this oil will immediately help, and over time, also have some good long-term effects, e.g. healthier skin under your beard.
Art Naturals® Organic Beard Oil & Leave-In Conditioner 2 oz- 100% Pure & Natural Unscented
This beard oil is great if you are looking for a natural oil that works like a conditioner for your beard, and it comes in a bigger bottle than other oils which makes the purchase a rather good deal.
Even though there are essential oils in the product, you will have to try very hard to notice any smell coming from it. This is great if you would like to use a different product to make your beard smell a certain way.
This oil conditions your beard very well, but unfortunately it does not last all day long, especially if you have very dry hair.
- Works very well for dry hair
- All natural ingredients
- Prevents dandruff
- Fights against acne
- No scent
- Does not last all day
- No long-term effects
This product is basically a good choice if you only look for a product to moisturize your beard or make it look nice for a special event. It wears off rather quickly, so you might want to apply it twice a day if you have a really dry beard and dry skin under it.
The product can prevent dandruff, and the essential oils are known to help in the fight against acne, so this would be a good solution for beard wearers who also have an issue with acne.
Wild Willie’s Beard Oil
Wild Willie’ Beard Oil is packed with organic oils, and is handmade in small batches in the USA. While many beard oils focus on conditioning the beard and making it look as good as possible, this oil goes one step further and also makes sure your skin is looked after.
The different oils used in this blend all have a purpose, e.g. apricot kernel oil is an excellent moisturizer, while emu oil stimulates the hair follicles, and jojoba oil has antibacterial properties. The combination of the oils prevents dandruff in your beard and will leave the skin under your beard feeling great and itch free.
Unlike other oils, this one does come with a pump and not a dropper—which leaves less of a mess. The only drawback could be the scent for some people—it is strong when you use the oil, but soon disappears.
- Organic ingredients
- Handmade in small batches
- No chemicals, no fragrances, no nasty stuff
- Many advantages for your beard as well as your skin
- Quick absorption
Scent might not be every man’s cup of tea
While this is a bit on the expensive side, it is a very good oil for your beard, especially if you do not want any nasty chemicals coming in contact with it—and a few drops will be enough to make your beard stand out from the crowd.
The ingredients in this beard oil are of very high quality, and you will notice a difference after a few uses.
We found that the different oils in Wild Willie’s Beard Oil are a clear winner. The way they work together to treat your skin as well as your hair, leaves your face and beard feeling great, and you also do not have to worry about the ingredients being bad for you.
As we mentioned above, there is a scent to the product when you use it. After all it is a blend of organic, natural oils and those always tend to smell. However, it is not unbearable, and after some time, the scent completely disappears and leaves your beard smelling of nothing. Wild Willie’s Beard Oil is not the cheapest option on the market—but clearly one of the best and your beard will thank you.
