After more than a year of development, Beardbrand has released the finest Beard Wash and Beard Softener on the market. This stuff was designed from the ground up specifically for beards. The Beard Wash has a very gentle lather that is soft enough for your face and tough enough to handle curly, coarse beard hairs. The Bead Softener, like the Beard Wash, is a silicone free product that won't build up over time. We recommend applying the beard wash once or twice a week, but you can use it daily if you are in environments where your beard gets dirty regularly.
A great advantage of Beardbrand's Beard Washes & Beard Softeners is that they are designed to match the fragrance line of any other products we carry. You'll save to buy these as a package, rather than individually and know you'll love them.
Spiced Citrus is a scent with universal appeal that's warm and complex. The unique blend of clove, vanilla, and spices works in harmony to build the perfect aroma. Think of the warm and comforting fragrance of the holidays at home, all year round.
Beard Wash: Squeeze a dime-sized amount of Beard Wash into your hands, rub them together, and apply to a wet or damp beard. Massage the wash down to the skin and roots of your beard, then work towards the ends. After a lather has been created, rinse the wash from your beard. We recommend washing your beard a few times a week, but if you work or live in environments where you sweat regularly, get dirty, or just feel you need some extra washes, use more often. Follow up with Beard Softener to keep your beard soft and manageable.
Beard Softener: After cleansing your beard with Beard Wash, squeeze a dime-sized amount of Beard Softener into your hands, rub them together, and apply to a wet or damp beard. Focus the softener on the ends of your beard and allow it to soak for one to two minutes. Or, for a deeper conditioning, liberally apply the softener to your beard and leave it on for at least 30 minutes. Then, rinse the softener out and pat your beard dry. We recommend using softener a few times a week, but it can be used daily to gradually moisturize and soften your beard.
Using Beard Softener as a Leave-In Conditioner: If your beard feels extra dry, Beard Softener can be used as a leave-in conditioner. Apply a small amount Beard Softener to a damp beard and leave it in throughout the day or overnight. This will allow it to penetrate the hair shaft and provide additional moisture to the dry beard hairs. Rinse the remaining softener from your beard in the evening or the next day. Finish with Beard Oil or Utility Balm to continue providing moisture to your beard.

I can't believe how little each requires: a dime-sized amount of either is close to being too much, and I have a 3-4 inch beard. Spiced Citrus smells like you've been offered a hot apple cider at a southern Louisiana crawfish boil. Soothingly intoxicating.
I love the spicy kick to the citrus. Next time though, I'll be going for tree ranger or some woodland scent. I love the was and softener and Eric was right about how the comb glides through.
I'm 47 and growing my beard out for the first time, so take this review with that in mind.
The shampoo is great. Just need maybe a nickel size amount in your palm to wash a 2-month growth beard. Good lather and rinses easily. The scent is nice and not overpowering.
The conditioner is not bad, but I wish it was more concentrated. It's being used more quickly than the shampoo, even though I try to use it sparingly. I'm not sure how much of a softening effect it has really had, though. I don't see or feel much of a difference, but I haven't tried going without. I don't want to be one of those guys who talks about how wiry and coarse his beard is because I think this goes for most guys. Beard oil and/or balm is what seems to be really helpful for taming those whiskers.
The bottles SUCK for air travel. I put just about all of my toiletries is zip-type baggies anyway, but the bag I used for these had a small hole and I ended up regretting it. These bottles WILL leak from changing air pressures. If I stick with these products, I'll be transferring the contents to better reusable bottles when traveling.
I was skeptical at first, but it great, it removes all the oil from your face and beard, and the softener work great as well. Help make my beard look alittle neat before I go out and the beard oil helps bring down some of those hairs you keep trimming to make it look clean.i would gladly recommend this product to anyone who wants to take care of there beard
