While other beard oil brands are busy discussing your manhood, (or lack beard of), we want to take a moment to discuss something they aren’t talking about… your beard, and more importantly, what lies beneath. We believe that it’s how you treat the beard that makes the man, not the other way around.
Like a man, a beard either has integrity, or he doesn’t. With the over saturation of manliness in the over saturated market of beard oils it all comes down to this.

HOW TO USE BEARD OIL
1. Put down your lumberjack swag.
2. Cleanse face and beard.
3.Dispense desired amount between hands and thoroughly work into your beard.
For short-medium beards, use up to a dime-size application.
For long beards, use a nickel to quarter size application.
4. Guys with longer beards should comb through and shape with their favorite beard brush or comb.
First off... I have used several different products. Some stink, some do nothing and lots of them are just too oily. I thought I would give this a try only because, when I had hair on top of my head, I used Layrite's classic pomade. So it has been awhile since I had the need for that!
My beard is longer... I had tried lots of products including leave in conditioners that did help. But this stuff was amazing, first use it made my beard much more controllable. I have never had the issue some guys have of my beard itching, so I can't say if this will make a difference for that to be quite honest. Just like when I had hair on top of my head, as my beard grew out I noticed it was loopy curls, looked like Shirley Temple had her head stuck under my chin. Another reviewer said it made their beard curl up, but for me, it actually had the opposite effect, it made the curls relax and fall out some. All my hair is pretty soft, but with all that curl going on, it was really bushy. After about two weeks of use I noticed the biggest difference I have ever noticed with any product, It was finally laying down on the sides, my cheeks and my chin. I was also able to start training my mustache area to grow outward (left and right), instead of straight down over my lip without having to used something everyday to hold it in place.
What works best for me, with a longer beard (this might not be for guys with short beards), right after I get out of the shower I lotion what little of my face that is actually showing, LOL, but while my beard is still pretty damp, I apply it first with my fingers, then I brush it through with a boars head bristled brush. I have found this seems to be the point at which I can get it under control the most.
Couple other good points... I am so prone to acne, I have to be careful of anything I put on my face... this now, after using for a couple of months hasn't broke me out. It also has just a hint of a smell, that isn't so much it drives you crazy like a lot of other products.
I have already recommended this to several friends and all that have tried it are hooked. The only thing I wish, they had another size, a bigger one... if you have a long beard, you will go through this pretty quickly, more hair means more product.
Best beard oil i've tried.
Layrite Beard Oil is a good product. I really like how it moisturizes my beard and the skin. No more dry itchy beard and face.
Smells great and gets the job done. The vanilla is subtle not overpowering. Very pleasant smell. Not too greasy
I have never used a beard oil before, 'or did I know what to expect from it. It relieved the itchy-ness & left my beard feeling softer. Also, my girlfriend loves the scent.
I have an exceptionally thick and long beard and this new oil is among the best I've ever used. As a longtime fan and daily user of Layrite's other products, I was very happy to see the announcement that they'd created a product for my beard using the same high standards and realistic aesthetic found in the rest of their line of amazing products. The scent is gentle and becoming, and the texture is perfect. It applies well and absorbs quickly. As I mentioned above my beard is very dense, so I see myself using quite a lot of this oil, and very quickly; so the 2oz tube may not last me very long. I might like to see a larger quantity available. And while the $20 pricepoint is mostly fair (and very similar to other high quality brands) it does feel a bit steep for someone like me in a working-class income bracket. All in all, I'm very satisfied and plan on using this as my exclusive beard oil on a regular basis. Keep up the good work Layrite. -Joshua Marlan Hunt, Washington UT.
I got this product to get my beard in control. Two things happened:
1) My beard and skin became immediately relieved of the itch of a scratchy tough beard
2) The hair became immediately conditioned. As not predicted it became much curlier! At first this was not as intended however in the long run it is way preferable to the wild uncontrolable mess of before. Now the curl is attractive and comfortable.
This beard oil is by far one of the best I've ever used. I wasn't really sure what to think after reading about how it's thicker than everyone else's oil, but since I've been using it I really see the advantage in it. I have a medium/long, thick beard, and this applies very well into it with minimal amounts of product, compared to the amount of "liquid" oil I'd have to use to get the same result. The smell is very nice while remaining tastefully subtle which I really appreciate. Also if you have the mustache pomade, the two make an excellent combo.
This is by far the best product I've found for my beard. It tames the hair and makes it soft to the touch and isn't oily. It moisturizes my skin and adds just the right amount of scent. I love that it is more of a cream and doesn't make my face and neck all oily.
I've tried a lot of beard oils, for the most part, they all work the same, but add in the layrite scent, and there isn't another oil that I plan on buying again.
I've got a 4 year old full beard. My issues are after showering or getting it wet, I am annoyed with comments of "did you trim your beard?" perhaps after showering some of you have similar trouble. If so, this priduct is the fix. Restores the full beard glory after showering. Keeps it that way for over 24 hours as well. You can't go wrong with this stuff! I've tried a half dozen others over the years. This is the best.
I have used various products for beard care.. Essential oils and different oils from other.....but this layrite oil is the best conditions and helps lay rite....pardon the pun... But perfect...
When I first saw that Layrite was coming out with a beard oil, I was very interested. I have been using Layrite's pomades for several months now and love how they stack up against alternative pomades. I went ahead and purchased the beard oil and was beyond excited for the package to arrive. When I got home I gave my beard a quick wash and then applied the product. The first thing I noticed was the smell; it has a sweet glazed-doughnut-type scent, without being too overpowering. After distributing it throughout my beard, I noticed right away how much it tamed the wild hairs and kept everything in line. I had been using other oils prior that had the typical "woodsy" and "citrus" smells, but I was pleasantly surprised with how easily Layrite's oil absorbed in my beard and left virtually no residue on my hands, all while keeping the cream soda scent trapped in my beard for hours afterwards. I also feel like my beard is being moisturized throughout the day, rather than having a heavy oil resting. I now look forward to getting up in the morning and applying this beard oil, for many more months to come. Hopefully you guys get it in a bigger tube sometime in the near future! Keep it up fellas!!
