While the full lumberjack / hipster bearded look may over, the subtle “stubble beard” trend shows no sign of slowing down. Every guy I know under the age of 30 is sporting some variation. And, that’s good news, because the look is red hot! Growing a good looking beard isn’t as easy as simply ditching the razor, though. Sophisticated, stylish beards requires plenty of trimming and shaping. And, they also require shampooing, which can leave skin dry and irritated. Especially as temps dip and skin dries out from indoor heat, even short beards can be downright itchy! One way to combat the prickliness – and still care for skin – is by using beard balm or oil. And, one of the best is Brooklyn Botany Beard & Mustache Balm.
This beard balm is actually a leave-in conditioner that softens facial hair. It is rich in essential oils which help alleviate itch, dryness, and irritation.
Active ingredients include soothing Moroccan Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Sesame Oil, and Olive Oil. These all natural ingredients improve manageability, plus there is no stickiness, frizz, or stiffness. It feels smooth and rich, not greasy. Best of all, it smells great!
Although this beard balm is not intended for hair styling, it also works wonders on an undercut. Since the side stubble of an undercut doesn’t really require heavy duty pomade or gel, this beard balm is a great alternative and keeps hair soft, but controlled.
If you are ready to embrace the stubble beard look, see some of my favorite variations below!
Brooklyn Botany Beard Balm is available for only $13.99 on Amazon. For more great men’s skin, beard and hair care products, such as Tea Tree Oil and Natural Hair Styling Gel, visit Brooklyn Botany.
