Beard Butter vs Beard Balm

When it comes to beard care products, there is an abundance of choices on the market. Sometimes it can be a little confusing picking the correct product that will give you the desired results your looking for. Hopefully this blog will help when it comes to choosing either a Beard Balm or Beard Butter.
To start off, Beard Butter and Beard Balm are both designed to help you style and shape your beard. However, there are a few differences we thought we'd share.


Beard balm is a product with a mixture of several ingredients, most of which include things such as beeswax, Shea butter, essential oils, and natural carrier oils. Its purpose is to help keep your beard conditioned, healthy and to act as a styling agent to provide control and tame flyaway hairs. The Beeswax in beard balm gives your beard that extra hold and also helps to lock in moisture. Beard balm will help make sure that your beard simply looks tamed, great and well groomed.

Beard butter is generally made up of all natural oils and butters such as Shea and mango butter to serve as a deep conditioner to soften and moisturize both your beard and the skin beneath. Natural butters such as, Shea butter absorb into the beard hairs giving your beard a fuller appearance. Beard butters generally provide a light hold to help tame flyaway hairs and to help shape your beard. Since beard butters usually lack beeswax or contain very little, beard butter is easy to spread and has a soft butter like consistency. This soft consistency will ensure full coverage to your hair follicles, skin and facial hair which helps to hydrate, deep condition and soften your hair and the skin beneath. Beard butter is the perfect option if you're looking to manage beard itch or have dry skin or dandruff.

Beard balm and beard butter are both great products. It comes down to what look and results you're going for . If you want more control and hold to tame flyway hairs, beard balm may be the choice for you. If you are looking for deep conditioning to soften and promote better healthy beard growth, but still want a light hold to style your beard, beard butter may be the the right choice. We recommend adding both to your beard care routine, since they each have different uses and benefits. Beard butter is excellent to use at night before bed to deeply hydrate your facial hair and skin. Beard balm is great to use during the day to tame, style and to provide hold.

Another hitmaker for Skully's and it's a hit with the ladies !!!!

Perfect Fall Scent suitable for a Lumberjack

Very masculine scent that is perfect for the fall season. It is rugged feeling cologne that's woodsy, outdoorsy, something you'd picture a Lumberjack wearing.

Great stuff

I got a sample size of the Kentucky Mash and loved it, will be ordering a larger bottle in the near future.

If only this came in a cologne too

Skully's beard oil & beard butter are 2nd to none. The performance on this beard butter is amazing, always leaves your beard soft all day, & just enough hold that you don't need a balm unless you want one, my preference is beard oil & butter and occasionally mustache wax. This scent Havana Smoke is a very masculine tobacco scent with a pinch of mint, that always leaves people asking me what that is. Of all of Skully's scents this & Timber are by far my favorites, but you honestly can't go wrong with ANY of Skully's stuff, Trust & Believe when I say ALL of this stuff is amazing!


Beard is softer, more manageable without an overbearing scent.
The fragrance is subtle, not overpowering.


Feels great in my beard and has a scent that to me smells like a fresh pumpkin pie.

great smell

the "deadman" smell is fantastic. will be buying a lot more for christmas presents . love some of the other scents too. may buy some of those for males in the family for christmas. so glad I found this site.
