SUMMARY: Beards may come and go, but grooming never falls out of fashion. Why use a cleanser meant for skin on a beard that has different requirements? Beard Buddy's Beard Wash and Beard Oil cleanses, moisturizes and softens beards while leaving a warm, woodsy scent.
ABOUT THE BRAND: Beard Buddy was formed in 2011 in Los Angeles, California. Founders/buddies Nathan and Gareth wanted to create hand crafted products specifically for beards by beards. Built on the appreciation of good design and a good sense of humor, Beard Buddy is the destination for your face farming needs. Proudly made in the USA; not tested on animals, vegan; and paraben free.
USE: Beard Buddy's Beard Wash is the perfect shower time cleanser for facial hair. Foams well and leaves the beard soft and ready for oil or combing. A beard wash can also help to remove dead hair and soften skin while lightly scenting facial hair.
AROMA & TEXTURE: A warm, herbal aroma somewhere between a glass of scotch and a pine forest that lingers a good few hours. A little goes a long way; a quarter-sized amount is enough to wash a typical beard while longer, fuller beards will benefit from a little extra. Foams nicely!
PACKAGING: Simple, brown plastic recyclable squeeze bottle.
INGREDIENTS: Aloe barbadensis (Organic Aloe) Juice, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Vegetable Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Tetrasodium EDTA, Citric Acid, and Beard Buddy's super amazing top secret essential oil blend.
PROS & CONS: Lathers well and left my beard tangle free. The aroma is quite strong while cleansing and it is definitely perceivable afterwards. It doesn't quite moisturize skin underneath the facial hair; the oil does a better job of that.
USE: Beard Buddy's Beard Oil works to deeply moisturize dry, rough facial hair and the skin underneath it. A few small drops after cleansing or before bedtime helps to soften and scent beards.
AROMA & TEXTURE: Similar to the beard wash but the aroma lingers a bit longer. The texture is as expected a light oil.
PACKAGING: Simple brown glass, apothecary style bottle with black rubber and glass medicine dropper.
INGREDIENTS: Grapeseed oil, fractionated coconut oil, vitamin e and Beard Buddy's super amazing blend of top secret essential oils.
PROS & CONS: Although fantastic at moisturizing dry or scratchy facial hair, this is not the same as a paste or clay and will not help to keep facial hair in any particular style or shape. A little goes a long way and provides a nice boost of scent that lasts a good 2-3 hours.
