Best Beard Grooming Kits!
Let's take a look at our list of the best beard kits of of 2017:
This is a high-quality beard care kit by Mountaineer Brand which is enjoyed by many beard wearers. The beard oil is especially appreciated, and many people have said that it is the best beard oil they have ever had. If it looks and feels good, then it probably is good. The beard wash also enjoys a lot of positive feedback, with its smell being specially marked as a perk. As well as being robust enough to clean even the stinkiest beard– although it can get a little soapy. The balm is also quality and is noted for its ability to make one’s beard very manageable, allowing for swift and smooth shaping. The brush has had more mediocre feedback with some people preferring a simple comb. You could opt to buy this kit and possibly check out the beard combs we reviewed and go with one of those for a complete package. The brush can cause the hairs of the beard to become tangled in the hairs of the brush. This can make for some painful hair pulling. In general, it is an excellent kit which can meet most beard care requirements. Its high points are its pleasant smell and its ease of use. The oil, to many, is the very best point with many people coming back and becoming regular customers.
Pros: great oil and wash.
Cons: mediocre brush
This beard kit is known for making your beard sumptuously soft. As if the hairs were made of air. This product has been reported to make the wearer feel great and to look even better. It is commended for its brushes which are easily able to keep beards tidy without tangling in with the hair and causing pain. We tried to find their brush when we reviewed beard brushes, but we couldn’t seem to find one. Leven rose, please sell this separately! It is also noted for being a very handy gift as it all comes packaged together in a very visually appealing way. The smells of the oils have been noted as being the right strength as many are considered overbearing, especially since facial hair is very close to one’s nose. This product seems to be right on the money. This one has a downside however as some people claim that the parts are not very well put together and are prone to breaking. The price tag, which is a little steep is a bit beyond the ‘breaks in your hand’ range. However, this is only a minority view, with most people loving the product and finding that it makes their beard look and feel better, to the point that it is noticed and complimented on by others. Overall it is a quality product.
Pros: oil is just right.
Cons: a few reviews mention cheap materials
If you are starting out growing a beard, or you know someone who is, this might be a perfect, affordable product. The brush and comb are sturdy and versatile and are good for getting your beard looking respectable, even if it is a little on the short side. The boar brush’s hairs are very delicate which is always good for the skin of a newbie who might become red raw if they used a coarser brush. The brush is also easy to hold in your hand; it is not awkward in any way, and its wood finish is very pleasing to the eye.
This is a very tempting buy if you are beginning your beard journey as it does not contain all of the fancy oils and such if you are not yet sure that beards are your thing. You could even supplement this with a straight razor shaving kit and you would basically be set. It has great gift value as it has been made with pear wood, making it very finished looking without being too heavy. It adds a little bit of a luxury feel to it which may help newbie beard groomers grow fond of it and feel better about trying something they are unfamiliar with. A great beginner beard product all in all.
Pros: Great for beginners. A delicate brush, made of strong materials.
Cons: you only get a brush and a comb. This is great if you don't need any oils.
