Old Spice Unleashes Beard Care Line with NFL Brothers Travis and Jason Kelce

After years of telling men to smell better through hilarious television commercials, Old Spice has finally entered the facial hair grooming world. The only problem with the new Old Spice Beard Collection? That it took the brand so damned long to create it.

Teaming up with two beard-sporting, Ohio-born, NFL-playing brothers, Jason Kelce of the Philadelphia Eagles and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs, Old Spice released the buying the whole set just in time for guys “looking to grow out their beards for Octobeard (and Novembeard and Decembeard),” said the brand with its quintessentially zany style.

The Kelce brothers aren’t just the faces of the products — they’ve also put their beard philosophy to work by helping Old Spice author a book of poetry focused specifically on beards, entitled The Old Spice Guys’ Grooming Guidance Guide for Guis with Beards & Other Poems. The tome is, as you can imagine, as funny, witty, campy, and slapdash as you’d expect from a company that soared to pop-culture phenomenon after launching the “Smell like a Man, Man” campaign. (Remember that single cut of a man transitioning from a bathroom to a sailboat to riding a horse on a beach?)

Along with the beard poetry, there are also very real and very useful beard grooming products on offer. The full lineup includes a beard wash, beard conditioner, beard balm, and beard oil. Don’t want to purchase them all separately? Save time and money by buying the whole set .

A man looking at himself in bathroom mirror.

There are a few worries some men experience when they attempt to grow their beards. None is more prevalent than the dreaded patchy beard. You invest all of your time and patience into not taking your beard clippers to your face, only to have certain areas come in with full growth (like the mustache and goatee areas) only to have other areas look like a pubescent teenager attempting their first facial hair growth.

This stressful situation is one that happens to many men, so just know that you are not the only one.

Ever leaf through a women’s magazine and see shots of an otherwise gorgeous model with her hair wrapped in a towel, some creamy goo obscuring her otherwise magnificent features, and cucumbers concealing those $100,000 eyes? Often, the article is about creating skin treatments at home, especially face masks, using everything from avocados to turmeric and vinegar.

Although these straight-from-the-pantry fixes have always been in a woman’s toolbox, they haven’t gotten quite as much attention from men’s sources. What? Like guys don’t have kitchens? (I know I left mine around here somewhere.) In these days of DIY madness, being able to whip up a quick fix for your face can not only make you feel better, but it’s also downright neighborly: That’s one less package that an essential delivery person has to bring from a warehouse to your front door.
