A Chin Full of Win

You have achieved the ultimate standard of virility by growing a thick, impressive, gentlemanly beard, but now you must maintain its illustrious prominence. Our customers frequently ask whether to choose beard oil or beard balm. Which product is the ultimate winner for your beard? Well gather ‘round the ring, folks, because the match of “Beard Oil vs. Beard Balm” starts now. LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!

In the red corner, weighing in at 30 ml: the conditioning, the nourishing, the key to your beardly success – Beard Oil!


Beard oil is a blend of oils that act as a leave-in conditioner and moisturizer for your beard. Due to beard oil’s consistency, it reaches your skin more easily to minimize itching and flaking therefore helping condition your face for healthy beard growth. Beard oil softens the hair and is key for the daily maintenance of your beard. Like brushing your teeth, you should never leave home without it! At Bearded Gentleman, we use the finest superior grade carrier oils blended for perfection.

To use beard oil, apply a few drops to your hands after showering. Rub your hands together to spread the product evenly on your fingers and palms (much like hair gel), and massage it evenly throughout your beard and into your skin. Use it daily to see results.

And in the blue corner, weighing in at 2 oz: the stylish, the moisturizing, the icing on top of your facial hair cake – Beard Balm!

Beard balm adds an extra dose of sustained moisture to your beard and skin while also aiding in conditioning and styling your glorious whiskers. Balm helps your beard look thicker, allows you to shape your beard to your desired style, and gives more of a matte appearance than beard oil. Balms contain a combination of butters, oils, and a protective beeswax sealant, to keep in the moisture. Bearded Gentleman products are created with the finest blend of 5 superior grade carrier oils, and the ingredients we use are high in fat content with varying absorption rates allowing for a long lasting nourishing effect that will help your hair and skin stay hydrated.

To use beard balm, scrape out a dime-sized dollop and rub it between your palms. Massage it through your facial hair. Start from the neck and work up, making sure to include your skin. Use a beard brush to distribute the product evenly through your beard and shape it to your liking. Use up to three times a day. Bearded Gentleman products are all natural and you can leave them in until the next time you wash your beard.

[Ding Ding] And the winner is…

Both! It’s a tie! In the battle of beard oil vs. beard balm, it’s not an either/or choice. Using beard balm WITH beard oil produces extraordinary results. To successfully use both the oil for its quick acting restoration and the balm for styling, you should use the oil after showering. Give the oil 5-10 minutes to soak in before using the balm to style. Bearded Gentleman offers oil and balm Combo Packs that are specially formulated to achieve your maximum beard potential.
