Today Eric is talking about BEARD BALM. We often get asked the differences between our Utility Balm and Styling Balm. Both are great products, but are designed for different purposes. Listen up as Eric goes into detail about what exactly this awesome stuff is, and how it is used.
Beard oil and beard balm are also great beard softeners and should be among your beard care essentials. This beard oil and beard balm kit from Topher’s Beard Company come in their Drunken Pirate scent, which is their interpretation of Bay Rum.
While properly using a beard trimmer requires a bit of time and practice, you’ll soon get the hang of it. Here are some tips to help you get the most from your trimmer (and the look you hope to achieve):
Still, as with all fashions, what was old is eventually new again. Dr. Allan Peterkin, beard expert and author of ‘One Thousand Beards: A Cultural History of Facial Hair,’ says that latter-day beard growth, as it were, is no longer a function of army culture, but instead comes from pop culture influences. “Some even see growing a beard as a playful backlash to feminism, being one of the few things women can’t do,” he says.
Very informative post. I would say that both beard oil and beard balm are necessary especially if your beard is long. For short beards, maybe beard oil only might be more than enough. For longer beards, beard balm can style/shape your beard in a very neat way.
Tacitus states that among the Catti, a Germanic tribe (perhaps the Chatten), a young man was not allowed to shave or cut his hair until he had slain an enemy. The Lombards derived their name from the great length of their beards (Longobards – Long Beards). When Otto the Great said anything serious, he swore by his beard, which covered his breast.

It’s absorption properties will make your beard look it’s best without giving you a greasy sensation.
The best beard balm is going to be one where a little of the ingredient goes a long way. Not only can too much oil clog your pores, having to slather it on overly much might be the sign of a poor-quality product, so that’s something to keep in mind.
So, if you’re looking to keep your beard trimmed for a certain look, your trimmer is the tool you need. If you’re looking for a clean and smooth look, reach for your shaver. You won’t get that look with your trimmer.
Great website, I have had a beard for over 7 years now, of varying length, but have decided to go for a quite a long beard. I was looking for a trimmer, thank can keep up to 2 to 3 inches in length, really hard to trawl through various sites, and the longest I have found is 20mm (about 0.7″)
Lastly, keep that ‘stache moisturized! Use quality all natural beard oil, and an all natural moustache wax if you need help maintaining a tidy moustache. You can find those here:http://themodcabin.com/product-category/beard-oils/ and here: http://themodcabin.com/product-category/moustache-waxes/

Do you have facial hair growing in unfortunate places that you don’t know how to eliminate or groom (think: nose hair that grows like some kind of possessed black rose vine, down your lip and over your nose)?
I was just recently introduced to beard oil by a former co worker and was wondering. I’ve already got an inch to an inch and a half of beard. Would beard oil still benefit me much or is it better to start fresh?
The Braun 9 series has an extra trimmer as compared to the series 7, which the brand calls ‘Direct and cut’. The trimmer is used to align the hair that grow in different directions and then cuts them away.
Also, if you’re not applying beard oil again midday or at night before bed, you may want to start. Air conditioners and heaters can zap the moisture from our skin and hair, and if you live in a dry climate that will also take it’s toll.
The end of Week 4 is the finish line for this initial stage of beard growth and puts you well on your way to growing a thicker, fuller beard that’s the envy of men and women alike. You’ll also have a clear picture of the final shape of your beard. You can also begin grooming it in earnest. Congrats!

Super informative article. One of many i’m guessing. Haven’t had time to peruse any of the other articles on this site but no doubt that will be of the same high calibre. Any one who writes a great review about Honest Amish Beard Balm is a friend of mine – and of who i rankly highly in the beard grooming world. I was introduced to Honest Amish after coming across a similar review article over at Hot Shave Hustlers. It’s a product that just keeps on giving and giving year in – year out. No doubt in my top 3 beard balms along with the infamous Wild Willies Beard Butter and Professor Edward Fuzzworthy’s beard care balm gloss,(…what a mouthful!). Also highly impressed by other products coming out of the Honest Amish stable, namely the Premium Beard oil and the Beard and Body Soap (slick). Hands down a great article right here. Look forward to perusing the site and reading much more.. JM
Shave regularly until your facial hair comes in evenly. The worst way to grow a beard is to just stop shaving, or to never start. This results in patchy, uneven, and thin beards that just flat-out won’t look good on your face. If your facial hair isn’t growing in evenly all around your face, keep shaving regularly, and be patient until it does.
Mountaineer Brand is a trusted brand in the beard product space. They’ve produced several items with overwhelming reviews. We’ve reviewed several of their products on BeardBro, and their balm is no different.
The best oils and the ones you should be looking into are the ones that mostly consist of carrier oils and some fine smelling essential oils. The carrier oils are the ones that do all the magic though, and they are the ones you will usually find in most nourishing and repairing beauty products. They are the ones that make your skin healthy and give your beard much needed vitamins and care.
Now that you’ve finished trimming your neck and produced a clean, tidy neckline, you’re ready to move on to the sides of your face. But don’t rush into it, because your cheek line is a very important part of your beard and helps frame your face.

Wizard beards, or American Civil War-type throwback beards will take some time to cultivate, but essentially involve growing the beard out as long as possible, but still trimming the neck periodically, as well as the mustache, so it gets out of the way of your lip.
Occasionally, you’ll stumble upon beard oils advertising other beneficial skincare additives such as glycerin, safflower, Shea butter, and even wheat germ just to name a few. Familiarizing yourself with the formula will help kickstart your beard grooming routine.
One of their more unique butter is kokum butter. Kokum has anti-inflammatory properties and, like cocoa and shea butter, it doesn’t get greasy and clog pores. Aside from that, it goes a step beyond by being a natural antibacterial as well as an antioxidant, which protects your cells and keeps them healthy.
Be careful when using a brush on a short beard, because you can irritate the skin. If you have a stubble beard or only a couple weeks of growth, brush less frequently until you’ve grown it out some more.
Beards take a while to take form. Try to grow it out for at least eight weeks. Before this, you never really give your beard a chance to start to really grow out. If you are not happy with what you see, shave and try again.
Nothing too interesting here. Just a solid combination of carrier and essential oils. They are listed as: grapeseed oil, almond oil, beeswax, shea butter, cocoa seed butter, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, pure honey, orange peel oil, grapefruit peel oil, and clove flower oil. Nothing too crazy, and all these are pretty common. The product is handmade, cruelty free, and vegan friendly.
In order to balance the oil glands around your hair follicles, try oysters, crabs or clams once in awhile. I would suggest it when you have a date and you want to move to the next base. I heard they send the right messages (wink wink).
Use your clippers to evenly trim your beard: If you don’t have a lot of experience using clippers, it’s always best to start with a bigger guard. This ensures you don’t accidentally trim too much and you can always go smaller if you find you need to.
Your facial hair grows in fuller and darker as you get older. If you’re disappointed by patchy or sparse facial hair at age 15, don’t be; by 17, you could very well have a thick manly man’s beard. Most usually, facial hair will truly start thickening around your late teens and early twenties, which is when you really want to be conscious of learning how to grow a beard the right way to set up future good habits and train your beard as it grows.
