It seems like more and more people have been growing their beards out. Indeed, the beard is back in style, as it has seen a surge in popularity in recent years. While this is perfectly fine, many people fail to realize that there is more to having a beard than just simply growing it out.

There are certain things you have to do to maintain your beard. In fact, we cannot overstate the importance of beard products when it comes to maintaining a healthy and great-looking beard. Now, there are different types of products that address different aspects of beard health. As such, it’s important to note that you won’t need to use all of the different beard products, as some of them are only needed in certain situations.

One product you will need is beard conditioner. Similar to hair conditioner, beard conditioner moisturizes and smoothens out your beard. Also, there are two main types of beard conditioners that you can go with: beard oil and beard balm.

Now, the question on all of your minds must be which product is better for your beard? To answer this question, we’ll be breaking down the differences between beard balm and beard oil so that you know more about them before making a purchase.

Beard Balm

Ideally, beard balms should serve as an all-in-one product that functions as a moisturizer, conditioner, and styling aid. Due to beard balm’s thick consistency, it’s best used on long beards. The thickness of the balm also gives you a lot of control when it comes to shaping your beard.

Now, when it comes to the choice of beard balm, we here at The Unshaved believe that it’s best to use naturalbeard products. This is because products that use heavy synthetic sealants could end up irritating and damaging the skin beneath your beard. This is why we make it a point to only use the best natural ingredients and oils in our beard balms and beard oils!

Beard Oil

Beard oil is better suited for shorter beards. It essentially works as a moisturizer as beards tend to dry your skin out. By using beard oil, you ensure that the skin under your beard is sufficiently hydrated, all while making your beard look shiny and well-kept. In addition to moisturizing your skin and making your beard look better, beard oil also doubles as a deodorizer. In fact, beard oil can be a huge help during the early stages of growing your beard, as it can help deal with the initial itching.

Similar to a balm, you’ll want to make sure that the beard oil you use only uses the best natural ingredients. You’ll want to watch out for beard oils that make use of artificial fragrances because they can be quite abrasive, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Beard Balm or Beard Oil?

So, which product should you use between the two types? Well, this depends on the situation because both of these products are quite different and from each other. Ideally, you should be using both as they promote beard health. If you had to choose one, a beard balm would be the way to go if your beard is on the thick side. For people with shorter and thinner beards, beard oil will be sufficient for day-to-day use!
