Best beard care kit

Starting your beard care kit from scratch? Looking for a gift for a bearded loved one? All-in-one beard care kits are a solid option for both scenarios, but not all beard care kits are alike.

Are you hoping to rock a handlebar moustache? You’ll need to make sure a wax is included in your kit. Is your mane particularly thick and unruly? Shampoo, conditioner, at least one balm or oil, and a thick, preferably boar’s hair brush should be on your list.

The comparison chart below should give you a good idea about what to look for and includes my top recommendations for those with different types of needs. You can check out even more kits at the link underneath the chart.

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.

Buy on Amazonfull review CanYouHandlebar4 Star Average Rating $99.99CYH sells two versions of this set. This one features three different cannisters of it's unique "dry oil" (basically a very thin balm). It also has two cannisters of moustache wax to keep your moustache in line. It would be better if they mixed and matched their different products, but if you only use beard balm, and know a lighter/thinnner balm works best for you, it's a solid choice.

Unfortunately a lot of first-time beard care product buyers tend to wait a little too long before ordering. Don’t be surprised if the temptation to shave your beard gets stronger while you are waiting for your kit to arrive! If that’s the case, check out my Should I shave my beard? post, and try tips two and three before doing anything rash.

You don’t often regret not shaving your beard off, but it’s quite common for people to deeply regret doing it. You’ve gotten used to your own grown-up, rugged, appearance, and even if your beard isn’t coming in as thick and full as you’d like, you’re likely to be surprised at the twelve-year-old boy looking back at you after you’ve washed all the shaving cream off your face.
