    I just use regular pure Almond oil. It's lovely and not expensive.

    I use real cocoa butter once in a while not the gooey hand lotion stuff but the thick creamy kind. Makes the beard shine even. My beard is now quite a bit longer than the pic in my avatar though.

    "Beard Balm is what you're after..."

    You're wrong. I've tried both, prefer the oil

    If you are feeling frisky, or just frugal, Cornhusker's Oil is pretty good on a shaved face or one exposed tot he outdoor elements that needs some relief. But since I use the Neutragena Norwegian hand lotion (without fragrance) all the time anyway, I just use it for convenience.

    This is the heavy duty stuff that leaves my beard feeling great all day. I have the oil but don't use it nearly as much. It's all personal preference. Cheers!

    I have tried a couple of different oils and the Honest Amish stuff is one of my favorites. But I am cheap... so I started making my own balm. The base ingredients are the same in many of these products. The oils are primarily made with argan oil and/or almond oil bases. The balms are usually a shea butter base with coconut oil or other oils added and the heavy duty just adds beeswax to the same basic balm. I don't worry much about adding smells or scents to it. I use a balm I make with shea butter and coconut oil in about a 75%/25% mix. Making my own is way cheaper than buying the little tins.

    yeah this stuff is mostly way overpriced. I buy the less expensive oils, way cheaper than even the stuff they carry at walmart

    Shea butter is $10 to $16 for a pound (16oz)
    Coconut oil is $8 to $12 a pound

    They sell those 1oz to 2oz tins for $10 to $15
    I refill a 2oz tin for less than $2

    Do you have to change it every 5000 miles?

    I have found that if I want to keep my beard longish or longer than that, oil or balm is essential, or the wife says it's gotta be trimmed. Oil was a beardsaver for me back when I had a long patch of scruff on my chin.

    Well, someone did mention "man-pleasing scent".

    You could also use your tattoo analogy and tell him being the only man anywhere in the USA without a beard proves he's an individual, refusing to adorn his handsome face with a mask of hair...:)
