No matter how long or thick your beard is, if you want it to look good, you have to take care of it. One way to make sure it looks and feels its best and take care of the skin underneath is to use a good beard moisturizer. There are a lot of options out there so we did the research to find the best of the best. Before we get into our reviews, here are some key features to keep in mind.
Package Size: These products range in size from 2 to 8 ounces but keep in mind they’re not all the same texture. Some of the smaller packages are thicker waxy conditioners where a little really goes a long way.
Type: We found some really awesome leave-in conditioners as well as a lot of great rinse-out options. This is really about personal preference but the leave-in formulas are easier to use when you’re on the go.
Organic Ingredients: Most of these products contain some organic ingredients but please not that doesn’t mean that they’re all 100% organic. That said, we found a few products that don’t have any organic ingredient. Again, this is personal preference.
Scented: Here’s the deal, most of these products have some kind of scent that comes from the ingredients. That’s not what we’re talking about here. We consider a product scented if it’s marketed as scented and intentionally has a smell.
Sulfate-Free: Sulfates have developed a bit of a bad reputation over the years but they’re generally harmless. That said, they can dry and irritate sensitive skin so it is better for some people to go with a sulfate-free option.
Made in USA: Though there are a few made elsewhere, most of these products are made in the USA. In fact, one is even made in the heart of Amish country, which is obviously a great place for beards.
Now that you know a little bit more about what to look for, let’s take a look at our top picks. Here’s how it works. We put our top and budget picks right at the top of the list so they’re easy to find. That’s the best way to get an idea of the range that’s out there. Stick around if you can, though, these products are all really great. You never know which one will be the right fit for you. Okay, let’s go!
