Beard oils are specially formulated to be lightweight so that they can be absorbed into both the hair and skin underneath without weighing the beard down. A good beard oil should feel soft and smooth, and shouldn’t leave a residue on the hands once applied. It’s also great to opt for all-natural options, which use ingredients such as argan, jojoba, and sweet apricot oils, and often nourishing extras such as vitamin E and tea tree to soothe and condition the hair.
Why beard oil will be your best friend if you’re growing a beard
Beards have been having a major comeback moment recently- no doubt because shaving is just *too* much effort when we’re not leaving the house anyway. Now though, it seems the beard trend is here to stay, and we’re 100% here for it.

We’re talking itchiness, frizz, dry skin and hair, and beardruff (dandruff, but in your beard. Get it?).
These issues come about because essentially, a beard is like your skin: it needs a little TLC and maintenance to stay in peak condition. Luckily, there’s a low effort, high reward tool that can be transformational in the art of beard growing: beard oil. Want to know more?
