Detroit Corktown Beard Oil - Product Review

Great quality product with nice subtle scent

Introduction & Overview

Product Name:

Detroit Corktown Beard Oil

Product Type:

Beard Oil 


This is cooly named after the oldest neighbourhood in Detroit, we’ve been told that the Corktown scent is reminiscent of the old city. This product has become one of the most popular oils in the last 2 years due to the superb scent and ingredients.

Any man knows that a great beard comes with great responsibility. Like that plant on your windowsill you keep forgetting to water, a facial hair that isn’t taken care of every day can become unhealthy, scraggly, and worst of all, itchy.

There are few things on this planet worse than itchy facial hair, but thankfully it’s a preventable nuisance. Keeping the skin underneath your facial hair healthy with moisturizing balms and oils not only prevents discomfort but also fights beard-druff and makes the hair shiny and soft. If we’re sticking with the plant analogies, oils are the nutrients that feed the plant’s roots in the soil, and healthy roots are the foundation of a healthy plant.

For this review, we decided to check out a relatively new men’s grooming company, Detroit Grooming Co. Despite not being on the market for long, their business has grown fairly quickly, and we wanted to find out why. In this Detroit Grooming Corktown review, we’ll see if the product holds up to the growing buzz.

Ingredients Matter

A pizza made with organic tomato sauce and fresh cheese are going to taste better than one made with preservative packed sauces and processed cheese. The same applies to oils – high-quality ingredients are what makes a better product, and that’s why this Detroit Grooming Corktown review is so heavily focused on what’s inside.

The product contains a combination of sunflower seed, sweet almond, safflower seed, avocado, apricot kernel, rice bran, rice bran, and wheat germ oil, all of which provide different benefits to your hair and skin.

For those looking to keep their facial hair healthy, sunflower seed oil is rich in vitamins A, B, and E, which gives your hair a natural shine and strength. For those trying to grow a thick, full beard, safflower seed oil is packed with oleic acid, which stimulates hair follicles and promotes hair growth.

A Unique Blend of Oils

A unique feature of this product is its use of wheat germ. Packed with B vitamins, it can provide moisture to even the thickest, most wiry facial hair. This helps to keep unsightly frizz at bay, all while improving the overall health of your facial hair. While wheat germ oil is an amazing natural conditioner that softens without making your hairfeel greasy, those with an allergy to wheat or intolerance to gluten should steer clear of this product.

While rice bran oil is more commonly known for its benefits as a cooking ingredient, it’s also a great skin care product because it’s so rich in vitamin E. Working vitamin E rich oils into your facial hair improves cell health, protecting the skin from damage and adding a healthy shine to the hair.​

Bye-Bye, Itch

If you’re considering oils because you’re sick of scratching your itchy facial hair, make sure the product you choose has moisturizing properties. The sweet almond in Detroit Grooming Corktown Beard Oil is the main moisturizer, fighting itch and beard-druff by fighting the dry skin that causes it.

Almond works by exfoliating the skin underneath your hair, gently removing dead skin cells that collect in and around hair follicles and creating a protective layer over your skin that keeps moisture in. The avocado in the product has a similar effect, keeping water in your skin cells so that your chin and neck feel soft and smooth, not rough and scratchy. 

Our Final Verdict

As we near the end of our Detroit Grooming Corktown review, the verdict is in – this product does what it says that it does. It tackles the most annoying problems that come with wielding an impressive beard, itchiness, dryness and beard-druff, by nourishing your hair and the skin beneath it with a combination of natural oils. It leaves your beard feeling soft without feeling greasy, and even helps to repair split ends.

Our only complaint is the small 1oz bottle the product comes in. The bottle is open pour, so you may want to invest in a small dropper so that you don’t accidentally spill or use too much of the at once. Especially since it is a bit on the pricier side as well, you really don’t want to waste a single drop.

In addition to leaving your hair feeling clean and refreshed, Corktown Beard Oil also gives your beard a light, pleasant aroma of vanilla and tobacco. Overall, we’d recommend this product to any man trying to grow or maintain a healthy beard.
