Best Beard Balms

For me, a beard balm was the very first product I tried using on my beard, even before a comb or Best Beard Balmsbrush. While I did notice some improvement, it was the addition of a brush (YEARS later) that really made a difference for me and allowed my to get 3/4 of the way to a yeard. Up until then, I kept having to cut back my unruly beard when it got past a certain point.

The following best beard balm comparison chart features my top picks for balms to add to your beard care routine. One tip as you look through them: If you, like me, have a thinner or shorter beard, you may prefer a beard balm with a lighter/thinner consistency. I have found that thick beard balms don’t do as much for my facial hair, but I’m not real sure why.

That being said, it’s not so difficult to thin out a thicker balm.

Try this tip for thick balms: Pick yourself up a cheap bottle of argan oil and put a drop or two in your hand to mix in with the balm as you rub it between your hands, and you’ll have a workable solution.

Note: You can click the titles of each column to organize the products by that metric. For example, to organize by cost, click on “Price” to organize from cheapest to most expensive. Click again to go from most expensive to least.
