Beard Oil vs. Beard Balm

Posted by Customer Service on

Beard oil and beard balm are both great for keeping your beard healthy and looking its best, but they serve different purposes:

Beard Oil

  • Function: Moisturizes the skin underneath your beard and softens beard hair. This can help reduce itching and beard dandruff.
  • Consistency: Thin liquid
  • Benefits:
    • Promotes healthy beard growth
    • Soothes itchy skin
    • Conditions beard hair
    • Can be used on any beard length
  • Drawbacks:
    • Doesn't provide any hold for styling

Beard Balm

  • Function: Provides hold and styling for your beard. It also adds a layer of protection from the elements.
  • Consistency: Thicker, wax-like texture
  • Benefits:
    • Tames flyaways and frizz
    • Sculpts and shapes your beard
    • Offers some conditioning and shine
    • Works best for mid-length to longer beards
  • Drawbacks:
    • May not be as effective for moisturizing as beard oil

In a nutshell:

  • Beard oil is for nourishment and general beard health.
  • Beard balm is for styling and shaping your beard.

Can you use both?

Absolutely! In fact, many beard enthusiasts use both beard oil and beard balm in their daily routine. You can apply beard oil first to moisturize, then follow up with beard balm for styling and hold.
