Ladies unless you have been living under a rock than by now you have noticed that beards are the new “it” look for men. Some might say beards are part of the hipster look and some might say beards are more of a rugged outdoorsman look. My husband has rocked facial hair since we met, so I have to say I am a little partial to it. There are aisles and aisles with shelves filled top to bottom with products made with women in mind. This is not to say that men can’t use these products but let’s be honest here, very few Tresemme hair product commercials have men as the object of attention. Several companies have decided to give men the spotlight by adding products that cater to their grooming needs. My husband has tried a few products for his beard so I thought I would review them for you today.

Uncle Jimmy Beard Softener Conditioning Balm $10.99 

My husband had been looking for a product to keep his beard moisturized. He received from a friend a few sample packets of the Uncle Jimmy Beard Softener Conditioning Balm. Black seed, honey and a blend of essential oils and extracts make up the ingredients list for this product. My husband enjoyed how creamy and light weight the product felt. Once it was applied he said it absorbed quickly and made his beard feel velvety soft. He felt his beard was a lot easier to comb through once the beard softener was applied. The scent was very subtle and masculine. In my husband’s opinion the product lived up to its claim. The Uncle Jimmy product line includes Hair, Beard & Body Wash, Beard Oil, Body Lotion, Curl Kicker and Molding Putty.

Koils by Nature Men’s Beard Butter $15

Koils by Nature has been around for quite some time. The company has a reputation for providing products to promote healthy hair in the natural hair community. Their men’s line includes Beard Oil, Beard & Face Cleanser & Shaving Foam, Beard & Face Moisturizer, Nourishing Hair & Body Butter Tranquil Virility and Beard Butter. I purchased the Beard Butter as a gift for my bearded man. I was impressed by the list of ingredients for this product which include shea butter, coconut oil, avocado butter and Jamaican black castor oil, just to name a few. The first few times my husband used the Koils by Nature Men’s Beard Butter he was a little disappointed. Unlike the Uncle Jimmy’s product, Koils by Nature Men’s Beard Butter has shea butter and coconut oil as its main ingredients. Which means the product is in more of a creamy solid state. For the natural hair ladies reading, I’m basically saying the product has less slip. Therefore, it helps to warm a small amount in your hands first and then apply. Once my husband had a better idea of how the product worked best he began to like it. The scent reminds me of baby powder. Which could be a good or bad thing depending on your own preferences.

Who knows how long the beard trend will continue. With the cooler months on the way, I can bet that the trend will not be going anywhere soon. These two companies are placing great quality items on the shelves. So the next time you are wondering what to get the man in your life, whether it be a boyfriend, husband, father or brother, consider buying some men’s only products like the two I mentioned. Hey, the fellas want to look good too.
