Gentlemen's Beard Premium Beard Balm
Conditions, strengthens and hydrates hair fibres from the inside, encouraging hair growth and keeps your man mane healthy, controls coarse hair and will help repair dry and damaged split ends while giving it a slight hold.
Recently I decided to try growing my beard long again. I have always had trouble growing it out because I just don’t have the facial hair density that other men do. After catching my girlfriend drooling over some beautiful male model on Instagram the other day, I asked her if she wanted me to grow a luscious man mane just like that oddly attractive male model. She just looked at me and LAUGHED!
I knew I was going to need reinforcements, so I Googled "best beard balm review" because I had read somewhere that balm has a more dense texture that makes all your face whiskers appear fuller when applied. I quickly scanned through the list of beard balm review sites and found this one was consistently listed in the top 10 rated products so I had to check it out for myself
Here's all the great ingredients included in this great balm. All of them provide key vitamins that help keep your man mane looking healthy all day long:
- Organic cocos nucifera (coconut) oil,
- Cera alba (bees wax)
- Organic fair trade extra virgin butyrospermum parkii (Shea) butter,
- Organic helianthusanuus (sunflower) oil,
- Organic argania spinosa (argan) oil
- Organic oenothera biennis(evening primrose) oil
- Organic simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) oil
- Organic matricariarecuitita (chamomile) flower extract
- Tocopherols (vitamin e)
What an All Stars list of ingredients! The best thing about this balm is that they take it a step further by using organic natural ingredients, which gives that extra "umph" that your facial hair needs. Organic essential oils are extracted from plants that were grown without using any pesticides, making them the more preferred type of essential oils that people want to see being used in a product. Especially one that they are applying to their face.
What's the Difference Between Oils and Balms?
The answer most guys will give you is "there is no f%@cking difference? I just want a cool looking beard so I can get more chicks". We are guys what do you expect from us? But the industry is trying to make us think there are multiple differences. With the amount of products there are in today’s market it’s causing nothing but confusion among thousands of men, who just end up sitting there with a glazed look over our faces, stroking our course beards as we ponder what the real answer is.
While a lot of guys argue that there is no difference between oil or balm, I can assure you that those poor fools are quite mistaken, and I’m going to explain why. What really separates these 2 products is simply that oil is made up of a variety of oils (shocking I know), while balms use a variety of ingredients like Shea butter, beeswax and other moisturizers. Basically the texture, of both products is completely different, which leads to completely different results for your man mane. Here’s a quick breakdown;
It's All About the Oils
These are a mixture of essential oils that nourishes facial hair and the skin underneath, resulting in soft and luscious facial hair that smells so good no woman can resist. Being oil based, this product has an easier time reaching the skin beneath the hairs, which helps reduce itching and beardruff (yes this is actually a thing).
But Balm Has It's Benefits Too
This on the other hand, still contains the essential oils, but has the addition of other ingredients such as Shea butter and bees wax. Balms are a good source of nourishment and softens the hair and skin. They also provide alight hold, and can be used as a good tool for styling when you have to tame your man mane. You will also notice that balm doesn’t have a strong fragrance like the many aromas of oil.
"If you have a medium length man mane that needs regular upkeep, then you are going to love Gentlemen's Beard Premium Balm"
There is no superior product here really, just different strokes for different folks. If you’re looking for something to help shape and style your man mane when you’re having one of those bad hair days, then you probably need some balm. If you’re after something that’s going to make your hair look smooth and shiny while making you smell like you’ve just been hiking in the forest then oil is probably what you’re looking for. Or you could use a combination of the two and take your bearded lifestyle to whole other level. The possibilities are endless!
Our Final Verdict
It definitely lived up to its expectations, and left my hair feeling smoother, healthier and even slightly thicker after a just a week of use. I danced around my girlfriend while stoking my beard, yelling IN YOUR FACE as I enjoyed the softer texture of the beard balm. I liked how it conditioned both my hair as well as the skin. If you have shorter hair I would suggest you read some of the other reviews, we have published here but if you have a longer beard that needs maintaining then you need to try this balm at least once.
