The Difference Between Beard Oil And Beard Balm

The Difference Between Beard Oil And Beard Balm

With the endless supply of beard products on the market, it can be difficult to make a final decision between brands and types of products.  This is especially true if you are unaware of the similarities and differences between two products that serve the same purpose.

Both Beard Oil and Beard Balm moisturize your beard and the skin below it, but which type of products to use for your beard is completely up to you!

To answer this question, it requires a little bit of personal thought of the type of beard you want to grow and the product itself.  Either way using beard oil or beard balm is completely your personal preference.

For example;

  • What is the length of your beard?  
  • Do you have sensitive skin?
  • Do you want to have a shiny sleek appearance?

All these questions should lead you to your desired outcome of which product is more suitable for your style.  If you finish reading this article and still can't make up your mind, take the safe route and use both the oil and the balm!  Or get in touch with us and we can assist you in picking the best product for your needs; you can never have too much grooming supplies.

So the question is, which product works best for you?



The Difference Between Beard Oil And Beard Balm

Beard oils are the classic go-to grooming product for the everyday modern beardsman.  Our top selling Misk Beard Oil is the perfect balance that gives you the nourishment your beard needs, without compromising on quality.

We suggest if you’re rocking a short to medium length beard, beard oil might be the perfect solution for you.  When you start getting that itch from the early stages of hair growth or you start to develop ‘beardruff’, beard oil is the product that will gently moisturize both your skin and beard, leaving it sleek and smooth.  

Beard Oil application is simple and effortless, as it is absorbed quicker than beard balm, leaving it with a ‘flatter’ finished appearance rather than a ‘glossy’ beard balm look.  If you have a longer style beard, we recommend using a beard brush or comb, like our Sandalwood Beard Comb to evenly distribute the oil throughout the entire beard.  

Overall, beard oils will give you a silky smooth beard without the chunky messy texture you might experience using over the counter skin moisturizers and leave in conditioners.

Beard balm’s are for the adventurous who push the boundaries of their beard lengths, and our Misk Beard Balm will never let you down.

From experience, if you’re rocking a medium to long beard style, using a more thick and dense product like beard balm will not only keep those stubborn beard hairs in place, but can be used to style a rocking mustache or sideburns.

When applied, beard balm coats the beard and skin, offering deep miniaturization, which is especially useful if you have dry sensitive skin.  Beard balm lasts much longer than beard oil, giving you a long lasting shine and healthy beard appearance.

If you are wondering if you can apply both the oil and balm to your beard at the same time, the answer is yes!   Just make sure that you are conservative with the amounts of each product used, as using too much can cause a bit of a mess.



Overall, there is no right or wrong when it comes to choosing beard products.  With a little bit of knowledge and the right tools in hand, any man can successfully groom and maintain a stylish looking beard.
