Here at Psycle, we love a good beard! But as we all know, with every great beard comes the great responsibility that is grooming care. So, to help all our bearded friends out there as well as those looking to grow a beard this year, we thought we’d pick our top 5 beard grooming products.
1. AESOP - MOROCCAN NEROLI SHAVING SERUM - £27
Style is king in the world of beards and making sure your edges are clean and tidy is essential. Traditional shaving foam or gels obscure your view with copious amounts of lather making it almost impossible to get a straight and tidy line. Using this serum is a real game changer in personal grooming. Its low-foaming lather allows you to make clean and tidy cuts time and time again. What really makes this product special is that it’s heaped in anti-inflammatory properties that will make sure your skin stays fresh and irritant free post shaving - bye bye, post shaving redness!
2. THE BRIGHTON BEARD COMPANY - MANDARIN AND CEDARWOOD BEARD OIL - £22
To get that all important full and vibrant beard look, you’ll need something that softens the hair, keeping it healthy and irritant free. Now the amount of oil to use varies on thickness and length but either way this oil is a must have! It has a vibrant mix of orange zest, juniper and cedarwood aromas, all from natural ingredients and it’s long lasting too - which is important when eliminating that annoying beard itch! It's also the only product that made it onto our list that's made entirely in the UK! Each product from the line is handmade in small batches with 100% natural ingredients in seaside Brighton.
3. FIT FOR VIKINGS - HALENDIO - £20
If you aren’t into having aromas all over your face or you are looking to something with a little more bite for sensitive skin, then look no further than this beard oil. Its super ingredients, jojoba oil, argan oil, sweet almond oil, hazelnut oil, coconut oil and vitamin E mean your skin and beard will be nourished all day long without conflicting with any aftershave!
4. BEARDSLEY - ULTRA SHAMPOO - £15
It’s easy to forget that facial hair is still HAIR! And it is also easy to forget that facial hair, especially in a longer beards, is exposed to all the environmental factors that cause bacteria and smells to linger. 'Ultra Shampoo' to the rescue. Unlike regular shampoos which leave a bitter and drying effect when applied near the mouth, Ultra Shampoo has been specially formulated with natural ingredients to leave you feeling clean, soft and fresh. It even contains Botanical Bark extracts that will aid your skin in the healing process and reduce any excess oil build up.
5. ANTHONY LOGISTICS - INGROWN HAIR TREATMENT - £31
Ingrown hairs around your beard can be just plain annoying and this product created by Anthony Logistics has one objective - ‘Drive one irritation out of your life.’…and it does just that! Packed with a unique formula of natural ingredients and glyolic, salicylic and phytic acids, it will exfoliate the skin, remove the dead cells and release those annoying ingrown hairs. The natural ingredients of willowherb and lavender will also soothe your skin and reduce the redness post shaving, all this whilst killing the bacteria under the skin to reduce razor bumps and inflammation. Let's not forget that it smells great too!
