We talk a big game about proper grooming etiquette here at Esquire HQ. And sure, endlessly pontificating on the benefits of a good grooming regimen can be exhausting, but until you guys get the hint, it bears repeating: Finding a few of the right products and then actually using ’em is always a solid move, an investment in your personal appearance well-worth the effort involved.
For all you newly hirsute men (and more than a few of you not-so-newly-hirsute), beard conditioner likely represents a new frontier, an as-yet-unexplored foreign land so far away it was all but an abstract concept a few months ago. Well, I hate to be the one to break the news to you, buddy, but if you’re growing out a beard you’re going to need to condition it accordingly. And if you’ve already got a long, thorny, bramble of bristles clinging to the contours of your lower face, beardruff can be very real, and very bad. (Don’t make me mention beardruff again. I’m begging you.)
It’s no exaggeration to say the right beard conditioner can be a game-changer, transforming the untamed scruff dominating your face into a soft, silky mass any significant other will want to run his/her hands through for hours on end. Beard conditioners aim to please. They’re for you, your skin (still your body’s largest organ, FYI), and your partner. So we rounded up a few of the best of ’em available to buy now to make the process of cleaning yourself up as easy as possible.
And don’t play with me, G. I’ll be checking in regularly for progress reports.

The Best Beard Conditioner Ever
$8.25 (16% off)
Calling your beard conditioner the “best ever” right off the bat is a bold claim, but it’s backed up by the brand’s commitment to keeping your skin hydrated as hell, of a blend of oatmeal and aloe that’ll last for two full days. (All for less than 10 bucks!)
Beard Balm Leave-In Conditioner
$11.43 (41% off)
Honest Amish makes its two-in-one beard balm and conditioner with natural ingredients including a shea and cocoa butter base and essential oils extracted from almond and avocado for maximum effect. Once you’ve thoroughly rubbed it in, leave it ther—this conditioner isn’t meant to be washed out.
Beard Growth Shampoo and Conditioner Set
$14.99 (25% off)
The only thing better than finding the perfect conditioning product for your untamed facial mane? Finding the perfect shampoo in the process. Polished Gentleman sells a set of the two to make your search that much easier, especially if you’re looking for a conditioner that emphasizes hydration and will leave your beard feeling soft and smooth.
Peppermint Beard Conditioner
Let’s be honest: The Art of Shaving is almost always a safe bet if you’re looking for a new go-to grooming product, and the brand’s beard conditioner doesn’t disappoint. A subtle peppermint scent definitely isn’t hurting its case here—come for the hints of herbal fragrance, stay for the long-lasting hydration and shine.
$18.88 (18% off)
You don’t need to have the beard of a Viking (or his general lack of personal hygiene) to appreciate the nourishing powers of this product. Viking Revolution’s beard conditioner locks in moisture to reduce itchiness and irritation and prevent your skin from flaking, all while strengthening the hair on your face.
We’ve extolled the virtues of this product before, but it’s too damn good to leave off the list. Billy Jealousy’s beard control can be used as a more conventional styler, but the brand’s combination of aloe leaf juice and jojoba seed oil hydrates the skin while helping to soften your beard, a winning combo that can’t be beat.
Hydrate & Nourish Beard Conditioner
Scotch Porter’s blend of botanically infused natural ingredients makes for one of the most effective conditioning products on the market, especially if you tend to have sensitive skin. The brand’s mix of fortifying oils prevent excessive shedding and frizz and is completely sulfate-free.
Murdock doesn’t mess around. The British brand sells a premium conditioning product that incorporates wheat protein to strengthen your hair and prevent breakage down the line, while using citric acid to promote a pH balance (!) specifically suited to facial hair.
