Okay Smart Guys... But When Do I Use Which?
Fine question, and we respect your thoroughness. The fact is, Texas Beard Co. Oil and Balm are both excellent at making your beard feel, smell and look spectacular, but there are differences. Consisting solely of natural oils, Beard Oil has an easier time getting to and being absorbed by your skin to minimize beard itch and flaking. Beard Balm, meanwhile, provides more and longer lasting control through the addition of natural butters (our balm contains no wax and therefore is easier to apply and less likely to cake).
We suggest both for a flawless beard regime, but here are some instances where one beats out the other.
- Occasion calls for a toned-down look? Beard Balm will provide less sheen and give a more matte appearance.
- Daily maintenance and overall health of the beard on your mind? Beard Oil is the equivalent of an apple a day.
- If you’ve got a particular style in mind not immediately offered by your God-given follicle arrangement, pull out the balm.
- If your beard has gotten to the level where lumberjacks seek you out to hand you axes any time you’re within a mile of a forest, balm will most like be an absolute necessity for successful styling.
