Best Beard Oil Reviews

So you've just finished our article on beard oils.

You're up to speed on what beard oils are, what they do for your beard, and why you should be using them.

There's a lot of options out there, and choosing between them can be difficult. Luckily, you don't have to. We've put together this post to give you the comprehensive low down on beard balms, the differences between them and how that should guide your choice of product.

The Best Overall Beard Oils

There's literally thousands of products out there, and without a guide it's easy to get lost amidst the hyperbolic descriptions and lists of ingredients that all look the same. That's why we've made a list of the best five beard oils out there, so you don't have to look any longer.

Leven Rose Fragrance Free Beard Oil Review

Leven Rose Fragrance Free Beard Oil Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Made from just two ingredients, Leven Rose is the single best beard oil I've found out there, for several reasons.

First, there's the two ingredient factor. It's made from only Jojoba oil and Argan oil, and in our opinion these are the best ingredients for beard oils and balms. Jojoba oil is the closest in nature to our skin's natural oils, so it's the single best base oil you can use, and Argan oil is packed with skin healing vitamins, anti-oxidants and nutrients so it's fantastic for beard health and growth.

On top of this, it's unscented. Whilst I know a lot of guys like a scent in their oil, I prefer mine unscented because that way I'm free to add whatever scent I want to it with just a couple drops of aftershave, or even essential oils.

If you've never used a beard oil before, or you're looking for the best oil out there, grab yourself some Leven Rose. It's really all you need.

Pros

  • Fantastic carrier oil base
  • Good for beard health
  • Nothing fake or artificial

Another oil with a base of jojoba and argan oils, as well as a blend of others including ucuuba oils, Dr eNatural is fantastic for the skin, and possibly even a better beard conditioner than the Leven Rose above.

Like the Leven Rose, it's also scent free, it's vegan safe, not tested on animals, and there's a 100% money-back guarantee, just in case you don't like it for some ungodly reason.

Wild Willie's Liquid Gold Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Coming in a smart pump design that means you're always going to get the exact amount of oil you need, Wild Willie's beard oil is an award winning formula that's handcrafted in the USA, and it shows.

All natural and chemical free, with a blend of 10 essential oils, it's great for beard softness and conditioning. The only issue I have with it is it smells a little artificial, but that fades in less than half an hour. If this doesn't bother you, pick this up and get a great beard oil that's the simplest to use out of every one we've reviewed.

Honest Amish Classic Beard Oil Review

Honest Amish Classic Beard Oil Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

We love Honest Amish beard products. They're all great, and this beard oil is no exception. With a mix of jojoba and argan oils, the same base blend as our top pick, as well as five other skin healing and beard feeding carrier oils as well as seven essential oils, Honest Amish's classic is great for your beard's health.

It's all organic and hand crafted in America. The blend makes it great for moisturizing and curing beardruff, and it smells great, kind of like liquorice. Because it's Honest Amish, it's also a great oil for using with beard balms and butters, which luckily they also do.

Overall, this is a great oil which is well deserving of its spot in our top five.

Smooth Viking Beard Oil Review

Smooth Viking Beard Oil Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

You'll notice a theme with our top beard oils. They're all based on a combination of jojoba and argan oils. There's a reason for that. We think it's the single best carrier oil combination there is when it comes to reliable beard health, and this oil is no exception.

On top of our favorites, it's also packed with avocado, almond, olive, pumpkin seed and castor oils, all of which are great for beard health. Despite being packed with more natural than your local park, it smells great, too, a subtle citrus smell that left my beard feeling real fresh and manly.

It's damn cheap, too. The cheapest on the list. So if you're in the market for a great beard oil on a budget, you know what to aim for.

  • Really great scent
  • Affordable
  • Good blend of oils for skin health

The Best Scented Beard Oils

With added essential oils for smell, scented beard oils will leave your beard feeling and smelling fresh all day. A lot of essential oils also have extra nutrients that'll help your beard grow, so it's a double benefit.

As one of our best beard oil picks, it's no surprise that the Smooth Viking beard oil is the top of our list for best smelling beard oils, especially once you catch a whiff of it. Natural, citrusy, subtle and masculine, it's a smell any man can be proud to have on his face.

It's not just about the smell, though. Smooth Viking beard oil is just a genuinely solid oil, with a great blend of carrier and essential oils that'll leave your face feeling baby smooth and brand new, and your beard more controlled and manageable than ever.

With a smell that goes with everything, and doesn't overpower or fight your aftershave, if you're a man who likes to smell good, Smooth Viking is the choice.

Leven Rose Sandalwood Beard Oil Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Leven Rose make some of the best beard products on the market, which is why our top pick for overall beard oil is a Leven Rose. In fact, it's this exact Leven Rose beard oil, only without any scent.

With the exact same formula, except with sandalwood and other essential oils added for a manly scent, this is an exceptional beard oil that performs fantastically and is a perfect choice for any man. The only issue is, you pay for that. It's more expensive than pretty much every other beard oil out there. But it's definitely worth it.

Handmade in the USA just like they used to, the 2 Bits Man 'Woods Man' beard oil is a great scent that will make you feel, and smell, like you're ready to go striding deep into the forest with a axe slung over your shoulder.

Made with grapeseed as a base, one of the three best oil bases we recommend in our beard oil guide, and scented with cedarwood and pine, this oil is great for the skin, and smells amazing, fresh and natural. It's also good for the skin, leaving your beard soft and manageable.

Pure Body Naturals Beard Oil and Balm Review

Pure Body Naturals Beard Oil and Balm Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

A dual beard oil and beard balm combo, this saves you time trying to find a balm that compliments your beard oil, especially when you've got a beard oil that smells as powerfully as this one.

This beard oil is divisive. Whilst I got on with it and really liked the smell, which reminded me of incense sticks and dried flowers, I can understand why some guys might not like it.

It does the job as a beard oil, too, with a blend of argan, sesame and apricot oils to moisturize and condition. If I were looking for a new beard oil, I'd go for one of the others on this list, but this is still a great, strong smelling beard oil.

Pros

  • Comes with a balm as well as the oil
  • Strong, long lasting scent

The Best Unscented Beard Oils

100% natural and organic, and made with the best base oils we recommend, jojoba and argan, as well as vitamin E, ArtNatural's beard oil is exceptional when it comes to beard health and growth.

An antibacterial and antioxidant with great hydration qualities for the skin, this oil is excellent when you've got dry or itchy skin. Because it's unscented you can use it as often as you want and with any aftershaves or colognes you might already use, or even just slam a few drops of essential oil into it and make your own blend.

Stellar Naturals Unscented Beard Oil Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Another 100% natural and unscented beard oil, Stellar Naturals stands apart with its massive range of all natural ingredients, including jojoba, coconut, grapeseed and hazelnut carriers, and a huge set of essential oils for beard bursting nutrients and vitamins.

Because it's unscented, you can use it knowing that it's not going to interfere with your day, and the oils used are allergenic, but bear in mind you can't use this if you're allergic to nuts, because it contains hazelnut.

On top of all of that, you've got the peace of mind of a full refund if you end up not liking it. But that ain't gonna happen.

The Best Fully Organic Beard Oils

Cheaper beard brands can pack their oils with chemicals or use processes that leave trace amounts of plastics and toxins in their products. It's not going to do anything the first time you use them, but over time they can build up. Fully organic beard oils will avoid this, plus you can feel good about saving the planet at the same time.

US Organic Beard Oil Review

US Organic Beard Oil Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

The single best organic beard oil we've found, US Organic beard oil boasts a comprehensive list of credentials. Certified organic with premium ingredients, registered cruelty-free with no animal testing, no chemicals, additives or preservatives.

For an environmentally conscious man, there's absolutely no reason anyone could take affront at this. And it happens to be a really great beard oil as well. It's got a base of jojoba and argan, and anyone who's been paying attention knows we absolutely love those ingredients for being the closest to human skin oils as well as locking in moisture for gloriously smooth skin and manly beards.

There's also a bunch of other benefits, including tea tree, peppermint and rosemary oils for antibacterial and antimicrobial protection, killing any bacteria that might be lurking in the dark recesses of your face. Plus that peppermint oil gives it a real fresh, clean smell, so you're gonna go through the day with the confidence of knowing you look and smell great.

No doubt if you use this beard oil that you're going to end up with a much more stylish, healthier beard.

Vegan safe, not tested on animals, and there's a 100% money back guarantee. The only real downside? It is kinda expensive, but if you want quality, you gotta pay the price right?

Morning Wood Organic Beard Oil with Biotin Review

Major Beards's Overall Rating

Obviously fully organic, this beard oil has added biotin, a B vitamin complex, and magnesium, that in concert encourage your body to produce and grow more hair, leading to a thicker, longer beard in a much shorter time. So regular use of this should leave you with a mane like a mountain man.

The ubiquitous jojoba and argan oils make up the organic base, and it's got half a dozen other carrier and essential oils mixed into the blend that bolster the beard strengthening and conditioning effects. It also lasts a good long time. Sometimes even to the evening after putting it on first thing, so it's going to be penetrating deep into your beard and delivering beard boosting nutritional goodness for the entire day.

Grapeseed, jojoba and argan oils make up the base of this handsomely turned out beard oil. The smell is a real high point, cedarwood and citrus, or if you don't fancy that, there's a sandalwood option. Both are really masculine and remind me of my grandfather's generation, making me smile every time I treated my beard with this.

For a fully organic oil, it's also really reasonably priced compared to its competitors, making this an excellent choice for a budding organic beardsman on a budget.

Designed to be a safe and effective treatment for any beard related issues without causing further flare ups or skin issues, Respect Your Beard's beard oil is hypoallergenic, so it's not going to cause any skin irritation or allergies. It's not got any nut oils or byproducts, which some beard oils can have, and it's unscented, in case you have issues with essential oils.

The base is the ubiquitous argan and jojoba, with pataua, copaiba, sunflower, rice bran, rosemary and vitamin E added, all great compounds when it comes to skin and beard health. Now, it's a solid beard oil, it just wasn't as good as the two above. If you've got beardruff or flaky skin, I'd still pick one of our other choices.

It's got a full 18 ingredients, including all important oils like rosemary and lavender, which in studies have been shown to be as effective as pharmaceutical topical creams for hair growth and preventing hair loss.

It's also packed with other essential oils that condition and nourish your face, leaving your beard thicker and healthier looking than ever. One small warning though. This does smell a bit, well, weird. I didn't get on with it, and can't imagine going through the day smelling like this oil. Thankfully, the manufacturers recommend using this a few minutes before you shower, so you only have to smell it for a few minutes. It's a small price to pay for a much manlier beard.
