Our top 5 beard care products for Xmas

Perhaps you’re not looking for a gift set and you just want to buy a few items but you’re not sure which products are essential to maintaining and grown a healthy beard. Where do we start, this list of beard care items are never ending, luckily we’ve put our expertise to use and we’ve come up with the essential top 5 must haves for any beadsman.

  • Beard Oil - Essential for daily use, beard oils not only keep the facial hairs soft and manageable, they add scent to the beard and keep the delicate skin below the beard hydrated. Not only are you looking after the beard when using a beard oil but you’re also caring for the skin, what more could you need! You literally can’t go wrong with the Beardbrand tea tree oil, refreshing and soothing.
  • Beard Balm - Add shape and texture to the beard. If you’re bearded one has a fuller beard then a balm can add nourishment to any dry, coarse hairs, it will keep the beard in style and like a beard oil it will keep the skin hydrated and can also come in some fabulous scents. The Azbane beard balm is a firm favourite in the shed, lightly fragrance with orange blossom, it’s soft enough to work through the beard and gives a medium, lasting hold.
  • Beard Wash - A beard wash is a total must have for every bearded guy, unlike regular shampoos, beard washes and shampoos are specially formulated to replenish, cleanse and repair the beard. Regular hair shampoo’s will strip away the natural oils which are found in the beard leaving the beard dry and corse to touch. Whilst beard washes are gentle they are tough enough to wash away the harsh environment the beard is faced with daily, they are all subtly scented and perfect to use on all skin types. If you’re not too sure which scent would be best for your bearded loved one we stock a range of unscented beard washes like the Mariner Jack beard wash.
  • Beard Combs - Keeping the beard under control is what every beadsman is looking for, using a comb will help him to keep his locks knot free and will also allow products such as oils and balms to be evenly distributed throughout the beard. We stock a fabulous range from Big Red beard combs, all of the combs are for different lengths of beards, No3 for shorter beard, No9 for medium length beards and the No35 for big, burly beards.
  • Moustache Wax - Whilst I realise you are looking for a beard care gift, the moustache must not be forgotten. A serious beard means a serious moustache! This christmas season we are seriously in love with the Proraso Moustache Wax, it’s almost like a paste in texture but once applied it has a strong hold and the scent of wood and spice is just divine.

Booze and Baccy Moustache Wax - £10
