What to Look for in a Beard Grooming Kit

Don’t let your facial scruff look scruffy.

Being clean-shaven can be a smooth, beautiful thing, but let’s face it: Facial hair was the earliest male fashion statement, and it can still be the mark of a truly stylish guy. For some, it’s mainly a low-maintenance way to save precious getting-ready time in the morning, but for many men, facial hair borders on body art. Keeping it clean and precise is a primary step in maintaining the masterpiece under the nose and above the neck. To that end, a good beard grooming kit can make your facial hair look as spiffy as an expensive haircut. The best ones should include items to provide several essential functions: softening the beard, brushing it, trimming it and, finally, washing it.

A good balm or oil that’s loaded with nutrients will soften your facial hair to make it infinitely more touchable, provide or restore luster, and prepare it for the shaving process. Friction can stop a razor or shaver from gliding smoothly across facial hair, but the moisturizing properties of balms and oils will ensure an easier trip. They’re also good for preventing beard itch in-between shaves. Used in tandem with a brush and comb, they’ll leave your beard untangled and the skin underneath healthy and nourished.
