So What's The Difference Between Beard Oil & Beard Balm?

The high street is packed full of different beard care products, it can be quite confusing to establish what each product does and which will be most beneficial for you. This time we'll be looking closely at beard oil and beard balm, two of the UK's top selling beard care products. Let's discover what they do and why you need them.

Those who have tried beard oil before will know that it is a liquid conditioner designed to moisturise and soften your beard. It's intended to be a lightweight and free flowing product. Your beard oil should feel silky smooth to the touch. Beard oil in general doesn't provide style or shaping qualities, it's simply a conditioning product.
Beard oil will leave a natural shine on the beard but try to avoid artificial ingredients such as silicones and instead choose an all natural based oil, there are far more benefits to be had when choosing a natural product. 

In contrast, a beard balm is multi-purpose, it serves as a styling product and thanks to its special formulation provides similar nourishing qualities to oil. Although it's formulated with some of the same natural oils, the addition of a variety of butters and wax gives it a solid consistency. Once worked between the palms it will melt quickly, making it easy to apply. Unlike an oil the balm will set in the beard helping you to shape and style as desired.

Beard Oil Summary
Beard oil is the go to beard care product for many men, this is due to all the wonderful hair rejuvenating attributes we mentioned above. It's a simple product that is easy to apply, doesn't make a mess, it feels great and most importantly, it works.
Even gents with longer manes who enjoy the styling qualities of a balm still continue to use a beard oil alongside a balm because they know just how well it performs.

Balm House beard oil is packed with eight hair revitalising ingredients such as Argan Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Hemp Seed Oil and more. All of these ingredients were carefully selected due to their individual attributes.

Beard Balm Summary
Some men prefer a balm for its styling and hold qualities, as mentioned before, beard balm contains a lot of the same ingredients as beard oil with the addition of natural butters and waxes, it's these extra ingredients that some men seek out. It's a great 2-in-1 conditioning and styling product that will continue to be a favourite within the beard care market.

Balm House beard balm is an excellent choice, unlike other balms it feels great to apply, makes styling easy and offers a medium hold. This means that once set the balm doesn't feel too hard or stiff but still provides enough support to get you through the day. Other products which offer a maximum hold are usually packed full of beeswax which make the beard feel extremely uncomfortable and will require a harsher wash to remove. Our multi-purpose beard balm contains many incredible elements such as Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Jojoba Seed Oil and more.
