The 9 Best Beard Oils for Men to Keep Your Whiskers Soft and Smooth

It’s always a perfect time for men to style and grow a beard. But first, you need a beard oil — a personal care item that every bearded brethren must have in his arsenal. Different from beard balms or beard conditioners, beard oils are made with a blend of oil extracts designed to soften your mane and hydrate the skin underneath — which can get itchy and dehydrated if not cared for properly.

That being said, let’s help you upgrade your shaving routine with our roundup of the best beard oils, made to add luster to your whiskers and keep them presentable. We recommend applying beard oil every other day, though this still depends on your needs. Regardless of your grooming schedule, it’s best to use this essential beard care product when your beard and face are at their cleanest.
