Utility Balm


Unrivaled versatility for beard, hair, skin, and tattoos
Like a utility knife, Beardbrand Utility Balm is designed for the beardsman who needs a do-it-all product. It features all the benefits of our Beard Oil, but in a balm form that gives more control to pesky flyaways. Made with natural ingredients—including shea and mango butter—it works miracles on dry skin, adds shine and vigor to fully healed tattoos, and so much more.

With all-natural shea butter-based products, there is the possibility that the product will develop a grainy consistency. It’s nothing to be alarmed about. You can warm the product in your hands, and it will melt into a smooth balm. Or, try this trick to permanently smooth out the texture.

Beard balms were hardly new when Beardbrand launched Utility Balm in 2016, but we had our sights set much higher. So instead of settling for creating just another beard balm, we decided to shake up the market and formulate a do-it-all product for your beard, hair, and skin. Since 2016, Utility Balm has gone on to become one of Beardbrand’s most popular products. The Utility Balm really is a “Swiss Army Knife” of a product, and there are seemingly endless ways to use it. In fact, our Beardbrand Alliance members consistently come up with creative new uses for this magical balm.

Great hold without being stiff

I love the balm. It's too bad Spiced Citrus will be a scent of the past. I also bought four beard oils in the same fragrance.

Salvatore Mastrullo (Bend, US)
Not Feelin it

An addendum to my first post, i decided to do the fix for the beads an the texture is very good
I will continue using this bottle and if it stays like it is now i just changed my opinion i do like it. I watched the video to do the fix.

Cody (Calera, US)
A beards best friend.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. Hands down the best product I’ve ever used on my beard & skin. I use it for my beard, eyebrows, tattoos, knuckles, and I’ve even used it on my under eye bags during the winter. I use it daily, and wouldn’t know how to function without it.

D.P. (Grant, US)
Uhhhhh what changed

Temple smoke used to smell like burnt vanilla incense. Four vices smelled like the listed ingredients.

Now TS smells like Vicks vaporub and 4 vices smells like candle wax.

Great quality but the scent profile is a joke.

Arturo Millan Hernandez (Tonala, MX)
A little goes the distance

So, keeping it short and sweet, this is the absolute best beardcare product. It has *the* best price-quality ratio (although that can be said about everything Beardbrand); a very small amount of product lasts for a good fricking 20 hours (me and the Mrs. kept track of it); and the fragrance is simply amazing. I'll definitely restock, but I'm not sure how much time will my two jars will last for, really, I mean I bought them as a treat to myself (and the wife) for Christmas, and I'm barely half-way down one. It just goes to show this brand is the single best one, and my experience with the few products I've been able to get ahold of prompts me to keep on trying all of the stuff they got for us.
Keep up the good work and keep on growing.

Alec Bishop (Colorado Springs, US)

My beard outgrew the beard oil I was using. Glad to finally have something more substantial for my more substantial beard! Thanks Beardbrand!

Brian Donovan (Ann Arbor, US)
Great aroma, but the white beads?

Great aroma and promising product, but there are hard white beads throughout the balm (Temple Smoke). It’s really frustrating to try to blend them in, you have to use your fingernail to smash them and blend them in your hand.

Bill (Charleston, US)
Great Product

I'm admittedly new to the world of beard products. I've always kept my beard trimmed relatively short. In the past, I've always been discouraged when trying to grow my beard out with the scraggly look that accompanies the first month or so of growth without trimming.

The most recent attempt, I decided to start using various products (beard oil/balm/butter, etc) to try and get the scraggly look under control. I was having some good results with some of the products you find at wal-mart and your local pharmacies, and decided to try one of the better products that you usually can't find at those locations. I discovered beard brand and was interested in the different fragrances. I purchased a fragrance sampler, and really liked the Old Money and Temple Smoke fragrance, and ultimately decided to go with the Old Money beard balm.

The scent is definitely my favorite, with Temple Smoke coming in a close second. As far as the scent goes, it's nice that it smells like a fragrance that I would use as a cologne, so it almost has an additional benefit of removing the need to wear cologne because I'm getting that from the balm itself.

As far as the effectiveness of the product, I've definitely noticed that my beard is softer, easier to manage, and looks noticeably thicker and healthier. The balm doesn't have quite as much hold as I'd like, but when I purchased this product, I opted for a mystery item as well, which was the Spiced Citrus styling balm. I think my next purchase will be Styling Balm in the Old Money or Temple Smoke fragrance, as the styling balm has the perfect amount of hold for what I'm looking for.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the product and the results. The fragrance is unique, and has a classy/manly scent. In addition, the customer support has been fantastic. My initial order of the fragrance samples was never delivered (not Beardbrand's fault - I believe that it was delivered to an incorrect address by the Postal Service). I contacted Beardbrand's customer support and told them of the issue. They immediately responded, verified my issue, and within an hour or so of my initial e-mail, I got a notice that a second sample pack had been sent.

I'll be purchasing from Beardbrand from now on. I can't really speak to how it stacks up to other higher quality products, but it is perfect for what I'm looking for, and the fragrances are awesome. Put all that on top of a great customer service experience, and it's a recipe for a company that has earned my business for years to come. I look forward to trying some of their other products in the future, and will definitely be buying again once I use up what I have now.

Best product!

Everything about UB is amazing! I guess minus the grains but they’re easy to emulsify. I use it mainly as my nighttime “butter” and I wake up with the softest beard ever! And the uses for your skin has blown me away on how fast your results from using it is!

CharlieB (Lexington, US)
Great Product

Just like the product information says, Utility Balm really is a “Swiss Army Knife”. I use it daily in my beard. I also occasionally use it to give my tattoos more vibrance. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something with the ability to add some “hold” to your beard without being too stiff, which can also be used as a moisturizer.
