I’ve used the Leven Rose oil and it didn’t do much for me. It also does have a scent, nothing overly smelly, but there’s definitely a smell to it. I’m not a fan of the oils in general, but I tried Honest Amish beard balm and have noticed a lot less split ends and overall better beard health in the last year or so I’ve been using it. It’s easier to apply and a single tin of it lasts forever. I think I paid like $10 on Amazon for a tin and after a year I’ve still got like half of it left and I use it daily.
Honest Amish will provide you with good skin and hair care while giving your beard a very distinct and characteristic shine. People that use Amish Balm are in love with it because it diverts more attention to your mane and makes it look better every time. It also has a subtle fresh smell that will be very pleasing to you and people around you just the same. Applying the balm is extremely easy and the texture is very nice so it doesn’t make your skin greasy. Just smear it in your hands until it melts and then witness how it all goes into your beard and face in just a few quick rubs. Honest Amish is an established and loved brand, and you should definitively give it a chance.
You have to get used to it. Your beard now is part of you. Just like the hair on your head. But unlike the hair on your head, the beard gets in contact with the food you eat. And it’s more prone to be touched during the day.
Hi Kate, the PANASONIC ER-GB40-S mentioned in our review comes with a charging stand, but does not come with an ear & nose trimmer. Nose hair trimmers are pretty inexpensive, so getting a separate one shouldn’t be a huge issue. Be sure to check out our guide of the best nose hair trimmer.

Maintaining your beard’s health is crucial for growing a longer beard. The key is preventing the hair from breaking before your beard reaches your desired length. Firstly, get enough vitamins and eat enough protein. Once you do that, you can look at topical remedies for breaking beard hair.
During the early nineteenth century, most men, particularly among the nobility and upper classes, went clean-shaven. There was, however, a dramatic shift in the beard’s popularity during the 1850s, with it becoming markedly more popular. Consequently, beards were adopted by many leaders, such as Alexander III of Russia, Napoleon III of France and Frederick III of Germany, as well as many leading statesmen and cultural figures, such as Benjamin Disraeli, Charles Dickens, Giuseppe Garibaldi, Karl Marx, and Giuseppe Verdi. This trend can be recognised in the United States of America, where the shift can be seen amongst the post-Civil War presidents. Before Abraham Lincoln, no President wore a beard; after Lincoln until Woodrow Wilson, every President except Andrew Johnson and William McKinley had either a beard or a moustache of some sort.
Our Utility Balm also functions as a leave-in conditioner, similar to beard oil. Since they have the same function, it isn’t necessary to use both. Check out this article to see which one is best for you. A balm is going to be a little bit heavier than a beard oil, but will provide a longer-lasting conditioning effect as a result of its heavier texture. You should apply it once a day, around the same time you’d apply an oil. Right after a shower is always best for applying moisturizing products because your skin and hair are more receptive to nutrients. If you have a special evening planned, you can apply a small amount again just before you go out.
While you can use any good quality styling scissor for trimming your bear, it’s best to use a compact scissor like Percy Nobleman’s Beard and Mustache Scissors, because they’re small enough for you to do fine detail work that’s typically necessary if you have a mustache.
The Zohar, one of the primary sources of Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism), attributes holiness to the beard, specifying that hairs of the beard symbolize channels of subconscious holy energy that flows from above to the human soul. Therefore, most Hasidic Jews, for whom Kabbalah plays an important role in their religious practice, traditionally do not remove or even trim their beards.
Essentially, the parts of a strand of hair are: the medulla, the cortex and the cuticle. For understanding hair as it pertains to your beard needs, you can forget the medulla, which is the inner core and lacks structure, and focus on the latter two. The cortex is the middle layer where hair gets its structure from, and the shape of the cortex—round or oval—determines how curly or straight your hair is. (Curlier hair has a more oval shape whereas straight has a more rounded shape.) Melanin lies here in the cortex as well and works to give your hair its color. The cuticle is the outer layer of your hair and it’s what repels excess water that your cortex layer has drawn in.
Thanks for your question! Generally, you want to apply the oil and balm with your hands, and then massage it into your beard and skin using your fingers. However, we highly recommend that you use a good Boar’s Hair Brush to brush the oil through your beard after you apply it. This will help thoroughly distribute the oils down the length of your hair follicles. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Indeed, it’s manly but you also won’t feel like a lumberjack in a more civilized setting – the camera pans in on the bearded man in the corner who’s wearing a smoking jacket, enjoying a fine cigar and glass of brandy. “What’s that scent he’s wearing?” someone asks.
The jojoba and argan oil in The Mod Cabin’s beard balms will help with beard dandruff and so will our beard oil. Some people find it is easier to get beard oil to penetrate dry areas so they prefer that for moisturizing/dandruff prevention. For stray hairs we recommend Backwoods beard balm as it will provide a light hold allowing you to shape your beard.
Long Charging Time: 8 hours is the longest charging time we saw on any of the models we reviewed, and that can quickly get quite annoying if you’re trying to give yourself a quick trim on the way out to work and forgot to plug the device in before going to bed.
The Braun BT5070 also comes with a small 1 cm trimmer that slides out of the top of the unit and is ideal for trimming hard-to-reach places such as around your nose and mouth. Its battery provides 50-minutes of trimming before needing to be re-charged (it also comes with a power cord if that’s your preferred method of trimming.
That’s not unusual for those with thick beards. You may need to use more oil, yes, but other things you can try are applying the oil when your beard is still slightly damp. Now, this can be tricky. Applying oil when your beard is too damp can make it appear greasy, so you may have to do a little experimenting to see what works best for you. But by applying it before your beard is completely dry will help trap that moisture in your beard. Next, it’s always a good idea to top the beard oil with beard balm. The oils in the balm will also help to condition your beard, and the sealants will help your beard stay hydrated longer by sealing in the moisture.
Carrier oils will make up the bulk of your beard oil recipes. They’re a base oil that carries the more potent essential oils and dilutes them to make them more palatable for your skin. When not diluted, essential oils can actually cause irritation and burning. There are a variety of carrier oils out there that provide different benefits, and most have just a faint scent (unlike the potent essential oils). My choices for carrier oils — jojoba, sweet almond, and coconut — were chosen mostly on availability, but they’re also the ones that are most common in beard oil recipes.
It provides the ultimate power in trimming your beard to exactly the style you covet. It’s one of the most powerful trimmers we’ve come across, as it sports a motor providing double the average torque of a beard trimmer.

Beard shampoo is the backbone of beard care. It cleanses debris out of your beard as gently as possible while maintaining your beard’s ideal pH balance, unlike scalp shampoo, which can be harsh on beards.

Split ends happen when your hair follicles become too coarse or brittle, and the ends fray and, well, split. There are a ton of different reasons this can happen. Luckily we’ve got the perfect video for you on how to fix it! Basically, the root cause is a lack of moisture in the follicles of your beard!
Skin Irritation: The more facial hair you have, or the longer it is, the more vulnerable your face is to skin irritation. While the effects of this can be abated using other cosmetic tools such as beard oils, keeping your hair well-groomed and neatly trimmed is another way to fight this condition.
On Halloween of 2014, Eric Bandholz shared the Beardbrand story with the sharks of Shark Tank. We made a big impact on them and even was able to convince Lori (a beard hater) to feel the softness of a Beardbrand beard.
