Beard Oil vs. Beard Balm— Which Is Right For You?

Beard Oil vs. Beard Balm— Which Is Right For You?

Are you looking to improve the overall health and look of your beard? Look no further— we’ve got you covered with everything you need to keep your beard soft, moisturized, and tamed.

How can you choose between our beard oil and our beard balm, though? It all comes down to what works for you. Here’s a quick guide to deciding whether beard oil or beard balm is the best option for you.

What is beard oil?

Beard oil is a facial oil that moisturizes your beard and face at the same time. Many beard oils are made with moisturizing ingredients like almond oil, avocado oil, argan oil, and jojoba oil.

What is a beard balm?

A beard balm has all of the moisturizing properties of a beard oil plus ingredients like shea butter that add just a little bit of shape and hold.

Okay, so which one is right for me and my beard: oil or balm?

If you have a shorter beard…

You may want to try out a beard oil. Our beard oil is great for anyone who experiences itching and dryness due to short stubble and whiskers. It’s filled with moisturizing ingredients, and it comes in a couple of different scents to suit your preference, too.

If you have a longer beard…

We suggest trying our luxurious beard balm. A balm is going to give you all the moisture that an oil will, but it will also give your beard a little bit of hold and shape to last throughout the day. This is a great option for anyone with a long beard that requires taming on a day-to-day basis.

If you have dry skin…

Either a balm or oil will go a long way when it comes to moisturizing your skin and your beard. Both our beard balm and beard oil contain moisturizing ingredients like coconut oil, argan oil, and castor oil.

If your beard is patchy or thin…

Don’t worry! A beard balm will both moisturize your beard and give it a subtle volume that’ll make it look fuller. This is also a great option for anyone with a patchy beard because you can use the balm to tame your beard into covering any sparse areas.
