To achieve a look worthy of the urban chic or hipster label, you have to create a handy beard grooming kit or beard care arsenal. Otherwise, you will drift into the “Duck Dynasty” look. No sweat; we’ve put together a humble list of various products for a healthy beard.

1. Beard Trimmer


In order to keep your beard looking its best, you will need a good beard trimmer. While it’s true you can forgo the use of a typical razor when growing out your beard, you will still need to trim your facial hair to create your ideal beard shape. You will also need to trim your sideburns and the hair that tends to grow down your neck. One good beard trimming option recommended by Esquire is this Philips Norelco Bodygroom 7100 Rechargeable Electric Beard Trimmer, which retails for around $69.99.

2. Beard Oil

According to the Balding Beard’s site, “beard oil is a must-have for every man who’s serious about growing a great beard. Not just ‘a beard’ but a great one.”

Beard oil is created to mimic the natural oils of your skin. The skin underneath your beard can become itchy, dry and even result in annoying beard dandruff (beardruff). One good beard oil option is Tree Ranger Beard Oil by Beard Brand, it retails for around $25 and was recommended by Esquire.

3. Beard Balm

Beard balm is basically a leave-in conditioner that conditions, moisturizes and softens the beard. According to Balding Beards, one of the best beard balm products on the market is the Honest Amish Beard Balm Leave-in Conditioner. This particular product retails for around $12.23.

4. Beard Brush

Keeping your beard tamed requires regular brushing. This doesn’t mean using your wife or girlfriends hairbrush. Balding Beard recommends the ZilberHaar Beard Brush that retails for around $17.99.

The products listed above are just a few that you should have as part of your beard care arsenal. Depend on these tools to keep your beard looking amazing.
