Polished Gentleman Beard Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Polished Gentleman Beard Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

As a complete package, this is the single best beard wash set we've found. It's got both a shampoo and a conditioner, so you're set there and don't have to buy anything else.

The ingredients list is comprehensive, and contains everything you need it to, including argan oil, which is rich in hair healing vitamin A and E, manuka honey, which is an antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral to clean out your beard and leave your skin absolutely pristine. Tea tree oil, eucalyptus and rosemary for more antibac properties, but more importantly for increasing blood flow and stimulating beard growth. Plus there's biotin, which is like a nitrous injector for your skin, supercharging healing, skin softness and nutrient absorption.

Fully organic, ph balanced so it isn't gonna bring you out in rashes or eczema, and with a clean tea tree smell, this really is the complete package.

Pros

Cons

  • Contains everything a growing beard needs
  • Helps beards grow as well as clean
  • Organic and skin safe
  • Bottles are small, but last for ages

Zeus Beard Conditioner Wash Review

Zeus Beard Conditioner Wash Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Zeus make classy beard products, and this beard wash is no exception. Packed with vitamin B, aloe vera and dragon's blood for clear and healthy beard and skin, and jojoba and avocado oils for softening rough beards and dealing with the dreaded beardruff, regular use of this conditioner will soften up even the roughest of beards.

We definitely noticed the difference. Just a few washes is enough to get your beard tamed and it stays that way for pretty much the whole day, save a freak windstorm or someone intentionally getting up in your facial hair.

She smells great too, a subtle lime scent. As a man who loves the smell of citrus, this was a welcome addition.

Pros

Cons

  • Contains lots of nutrients for healthy beard growth
  • Smells great
  • Only a conditioning wash, no shampoo

Bluebeards Original Fresh Mint Conditioner Review

Bluebeards Original Fresh Mint Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

An excellent beard conditioner that is a strong conditioner, set to control even the toughest of beards, whilst leaving your beard smelling clean and fresh.

The peppermint doesn't just smell good, either. It legitimately makes your beard look and feel sleeker and shinier, so for dull and tired looking beards, this is is an excellent choice.

The conditioner also contains burdock and fenugreek, which keep skin and hair nourished and healthy. The only real criticism? The smell, whilst I love it, is intense. Some guys might not get on with it. But that's fine. That's why we have unscented beard washes, right?

Pros

Cons

  • Excellent condition and shine
  • Really refreshing to use
  • The strong fresh mint smell
  • Not all organic, if that bothers you

Scotch Porter Beard Conditioner Review

Scotch Porter Beard Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

With a clean, old timey smell like a real man's barbershop, using this conditioner will send you back to the times when every man wore a hat, every woman had a bob hairstyle and every child was smoking cigars by the age of seven.

I kid, of course. But seriously, this is a gorgeous wash that's jam packed with 100% natural ingredients to soften and condition your beard, including shea butter and coconut oil for soft, hydrated skin and beard, B vitamins for exceptional hair health, plus more exotic ingredients like nettle and marshmallow root.

Unlike a lot of other conditioners, this one comes in a pot and is more of a balm. In my opinion this is a great choice because it makes it real easy to apply, and you can slap it on before you shower, leave it for a few minutes, then jump in and rinse it out to leave your beard soft and supple.

Pros

Cons

  • All natural ingredients
  • Promotes a strong and healthy beard
  • No harsh chemicals

Beardsley Beard Care Conditioner Review

Beardsley Beard Care Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

It was Beardsley that created and sold the first beard specific shampoo, all the way back in 1993, so it's fair to say they've got all the experience they need. That means you can trust in their products, as they know what they're doing.

This beard conditioner reflects that. As a conditioner for dealing with dry, dead skin and beardruff it's fantastic, working to clear it up in as little as a couple of uses. It's also great for beards, softening and controlling even the most errant hairs quickly, and leaving your face feeling soft and looking sharp. Lastly, it's got a berry scent that's pretty strong, but pleasant, if you like that sort of thing.

Overall, it's a great purchase, especially if you need a beard conditioner that's going to cure your dry skin now.

Pros

Cons

  • Works on beardruff really fast
  • Softens and nourishes
  • Some people don't get on with the smell

Bossman Fortify Intense Beard Conditioner Review

Bossman Fortify Intense Beard Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Bossman beard conditioner is the first beard beard conditioner to use betaine, an amino acid that's naturally found in beets. Why is this important? Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. The same proteins your beard hairs are made from. Betaine is effortlessly absorbed by your beard and aids in binding hydrogen atoms to the structure of your hair, leaving them stronger, less likely to break, and looking and feeling sleeker.

There's also the ubiquitous shea butter and coconut oils for clearing up dry skin, plus a whole list of other beard strengthening and nourishing ingredients. Supposedly, this conditioner is also good for healthy pores, which is obviously great as it means you're treating the beard right at its source. Whilst I can't confirm this because I'm not a scientist, I know that I felt good using this conditioner.

Pros

Cons

  • All natural ingredients
  • Contains betaine amino acid for hair strength
  • Smells great, like the outdoors
  • Seems to run out fast, I felt like I used more

Cremo Beard and Scruff Softener Review

Cremo Beard and Scruff Softener Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Cremo Scruff make highly regarded beard products right here in the USA, and their shaving creams are seen as some of the best out there. Their entry into the beard wash market is a smart play as its all natural and works incredibly fast.

See, a lot of cheaper beard washes have silicones as part of their formula. Silicone bonds straight to the hair, which makes it feel really smooth in the short term. But this is like coating a gear with WD40. Whilst it's still coated in the lubricant, it's gonna feel smooth, soft and slippery. But what happens as soon as you wash it? That's right, it goes right back to how it was.

So what's different here? Instead, this conditioner has an all natural ingredients list designed to strengthen hair as it grows, so your hair is stronger today, tomorrow and every single day.

The only downside I could find with this? The bottle. It's rock solid, which means getting at your beard wash can be a struggle. Part of the fun though, right?

Pros

Cons

  • Starts working in just 30 seconds
  • No silicone for full, natural softening
  • Nothing artificial
  • Small bottle

Green Leaf Naturals Aloe Vera Beard Conditioner Review

Green Leaf Naturals Aloe Vera Beard Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

If you're looking for an organic option, without any of these weirdly named chemicals, then you can pick this up. It's made almost entirely of aloe vera, (only 0.25% of it isn't organic.)

Aloe vera is fantastic for beard and skin health. It's amino acid dense, which are the compounds that make up your hair, and it's this reason that it's used for hair growth and as a hair loss treatment, not just for cleansing and conditioning.

What this means is that if you've got a thin, scrubby beard or you're getting patchy, this wash will actually stimulate new growth amongst your beard, and should leave it looking denser and thicker than ever.

On top of this, it's actually a really great cleanser. Nothing artificial means no toxins in your beard, and aloe vera is a natural moisturizer and antioxidant that’s used to treat everything from sunburn to dry skin. Whilst it might not have the list of ingredients of other beard washes, that's not important when it does what this does.

Pros

Cons

  • Almost 100% organic (99.75%)
  • Unscented, so no lingering smell
  • Only aloe vera in the ingredients

Number one in our scented beard wash list, the smell of this conditioning wash reminds me of sitting in the barbershop when I was five years old, watching my dad in the chair chatting to his barber whilst he had a shave.

On top of the nostalgia, this wash is full of good things, including shea butter and coconut oil for soft, hydrated skin and beard and B vitamins for exceptional hair health. There's also nettle and marshmallow root, which are full of important vitamins and minerals that boost skin and hair health.

Unlike a lot of other conditioners, this one comes in a pot and is more of a balm. In my opinion this is a great choice because it makes it real easy to apply, and you can slap it on before you shower, leave it for a few minutes, then jump in and rinse it out to leave your beard soft and supple.

Zeus Beard Conditioner Wash Review

Zeus Beard Conditioner Wash Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

A lot of beard washes, or shampoos in general, smell really artificial, which even if you don't care about using organic, can be really off putting. This conditioner fixes that, with a soft but distinct lemon scent that will stick with you throughout the day without being overpoweringly strong.

Zeus beard products are also known for being solid, excellent products no matter what you're buying, and this wash follows that trend. It leaves beards feeling rehydrated and clean, plus the vitamins and nutrients in it are great for hair health, as well as leaving the skin under your beard soft, supple and inviting.

It's not just sweet smelling, though. As a wash it's got a list of ingredients that will leave your beard refreshed and silky soft, including eucalyptus, rosemary, manuka honey and biotin, which as a group have a host of antibacterial, antifungal, blood flow increasing, skin healing properties.

Bluebeards Original Fresh Mint Conditioner Review

One of the strongest smelling conditioners I've found, Bluebeards leaves your beard smelling of peppermint all day long, so if you're looking for a fresh, day long scent, this is the choice of champions.

For washed out beards, this is is an excellent choice because the peppermint oil doesn't just smell good, it also makes your beard look and feel sleeker and shinier. This conditioner also contains burdock and fenugreek, which keep skin and hair nourished and healthy. It is a really intense smell, though. If you want the most intense smelling beard conditioner, you know what to do. Go Bluebeards and be a pirate.

The best unscented beard wash

There's really only one choice for unscented beard washes out there, and that's the Green Leaf aloe vera wash. Any others we saw just weren't up to the standard, and it didn't feel right to recommend them. So if you need an unscented beard wash, this is what we'd recommend.

Green Leaf Naturals Aloe Vera Beard Conditioner Review

Green Leaf Naturals Aloe Vera Beard Conditioner Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

The only unscented beard wash we could find that we trusted, Green Leaf Naturals is almost 100% aloe vera oil, and completely skin safe.

Aloe vera is used all over the world for skin and hair health, and it's been used for literally thousands of years. Even the Egyptians knew what was up when they were rubbing this stuff on their mascara'd up faces. It's also a natural cleanser and antibacterial, so you can feel safe rubbing this into your beard knowing it's killing anything that might be lurking.

Not only is aloe vera great for beard health, because of all of the amino acids in it, it also actually encourages hair growth, so for guys with thinner beards who want more, this is a legit choice.

  • Almost 100% organic (99.75%)

100% natural ingredients make this the premier choice if you're looking for a fully organic beard wash. It smells great, cleanses and hydrates tired faces punished by long days, and leaves beards looking and feeling far better than before.

Shea butter and coconut oils repair dry skin and clear up beardruff completely, and a wealth of vitamins and nutrient packed plant extracts make sure that your beard is going to look smoother and more controlled and feel far stronger than ever before.

It also comes in a tub, designed to be used before you shower rather than in it, which is great. I found myself slapping this on, then brushing my teeth or doing the morning duty whilst I waited for it to settle, then just jumped in the shower to rinse it out and leave my beard conditioned and huggable once again.
