Best Beard Grooming Kit Reviews

Beard Grooming & Trimming Kit for Men Care by Rapid Beard

Rapid BeardRapid Beard

I love beard grooming kits that contain only quality items. Sure the beard oil and balm in this kit are in small servings, and since you would be applying them on your beard daily, they might run out fast—but that’s okay because they are such awesome products.

 

  • Includes stainless steel beard scissors, 100% boar bristle brush, handmade snag-free wooden comb, a beard oil and a beard bal
  • Fine tooth comb that can get through any beard thickness and length
  • Brush works great for shaping and smoothing the beard
  • Unscented beard oil and beard balm contain argan oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil as primary ingredients
  • Items are packed in a premium gift box

Both the beard balm and beard oil are unscented so that’s great news for those who have sensitivity to fragrance smells.

You’ll want to apply the oil after you’ve thoroughly washed your beard. The oil acts like a beard conditioner, and you’ll discover that it works extremely well for lubricating and moisturizing the entire facial hair.

Personally, what I like most about the oil is that it lessens my beard itch.

As for the balm, now this thing does wonders for sculpting and styling your beard. You need only a small amount and it's sure to hold your beard styling throughout the day.

Add to these another three pretty decent items, and what you have here is a genuinely solid beard grooming and trimming kit.

The anti-snag wooden beard comb is well made and it’s perfect for distributing and spreading the oil throughout your beard.

The first time I combed my beard with it, I thought it felt nice in my hand and I was quite amazed at how easy it glided through my tangled facial hair.

In fact, I’d say it’s one of the best beard combs I’ve ever used. Thumbs up to the beard brush too as it does a nice job of shaping up my beard.

One thing that could’ve made this kit even better: a sharper pair of scissors.

The 5-inch scissors included in the kit has a real nice construction and they are quite comfy to use, but a little lacking in the sharpness department.

To make the sharpness go from ‘bleh’ to WOW, I had them sharpened with my trusty 8000 grit whetstone. Now the scissors are cutting my beard hair like a dream.

Other than the scissors lack of cutting edge, this beard maintenance kit is a triumph.

Beard Care Kit by Jack Black

Jack BlackJack Black

Jack Black products are often lumped in the “luxury beauty” category, which means they are not friendly to the wallet.

So one look at this kit and its price tag, you know you’re getting one heck of a value.

The kit contains 4 different products that are suitable for grooming all types of beard, and would’ve obviously cost more if purchased individually.

  • A 4-step grooming set for cleansing, conditioning, and softening both facial hair and the skin underneath
  • Includes a beard wash for cleansing, a beard lube for detailing, a beard oil for conditioning, and a comb for styling facial hair
  • High quality luxury beauty items

Let’s take a look at each product one by one.

Beard Wash

I really enjoy Jack Black’s beard wash, with its easy lathering and how it gives my beard a pleasant shiny look. After using it for a about a week, I noticed that the skin under and around my beard got a little softer too.

Beard Lube Conditioning Shave

At first, I was a little uncomfortable using this for shaving because it doesn’t have the thickness of a shaving cream—in fact, the lube is translucent.

But this delightful-smelling lube surprised me immediately after my first swipe with the razor.

It gave me a pleasantly smooth close shave and when I shaved against the grain, I didn’t feel even the slightest razor burn.

Another plus which I’m sure you’ll be happy to know: Unlike a lot of shaving creams out there, this lube didn’t give me the much dreaded after-shave irritation.

Just spread this creamy lube to the areas you want to shave and prepare to be blown away.

Beard Oil

Made of 100% essential oils, what makes this one a winner like the rest of the items is that it does a bang-up job of softening my beard, giving it a nicely groomed appearance.

The slight fragrance, quick evaporation, as well as easy application only add to the positives of Jack Black’s beard oil.

Beard Grooming Comb

All I can say is WOW! This is the grandest of beard comb that no bearded man should be without.

I’m kidding.

There’s nothing spectacular about it. It’s just an okay little comb that works like it's supposed to, nothing more, nothing less. Actually, the comb is a little too thin for my liking.

 

Overall, what we have here is a gold level beard care and beard grooming kit.

Also, if you’ve been wondering what the big deal is with Jack Black’s luxury beauty grooming products; this is the beard grooming kit to get.

Men Beard Care Grooming Kit by XIKEZAN

Beard Care Grooming & Trimming Kit by XIKEZANBeard Care Grooming & Trimming Kit by XIKEZAN

Like Rapid Beard’s offering, this one also has everything you’d want in a beard care kit—a comb, a boar bristles brush, a pair of styling scissors, and 100% natural beard oil and balm.

  • Comes with a beard brush, a comb, a pair of trimming scissors, a beard oil and balm
  • Beard oil stops facial hair itch, and adds shine, luster, as well as texture
  • Strong beard balm holds facial hair for fuss-free styling and shaping
  • Beard brush with ideal firmness and comb that doesn’t snag the hair
  • Includes a downloadable free “ULTIMATE BEARD GUIDE” e-book
  • Items are presented in a sleek, premium gift box

Every one of these items is class, but the brush takes the cake for me. Not only is it darn well constructed and feels good to hold, it’s also delightfully soft with just the right amount of firmness for taming wiry beard hairs.

The oil will give your beard a healthy sheen and if you happen to have the itchy beard syndrome, this may be the remedy for you.

Next up is the beard balm which is just as good as Rapid Beard’s. However, this one has a bit more scent to it. Don’t worry, it’s not overbearing.

With just a little application of the balm plus some brushing and combing, any messy, bushy beard will look like a million bucks.

Speaking of combing, the beard comb in this kit feels slightly uncomfortable to grip because the top part is thicker so it just doesn’t feel quite right in my hand.

The trimming scissors are good though. They are comfortable and right out of the box, cuts much sharper than the scissors found in Rapid Beard’s grooming kit.

No doubt this set is outstanding, and I appreciate how everything is handsomely packaged. Really guys, as far as beard grooming and trimming sets go, this is one of the best out there.

The Grow A Beard Set by Grow A Beard

Grow A Beard SetGrow A Beard Set

When it comes to maintenance kits for beards, the Grow a Beard set ranks high on the list—so high, in fact, that at the time of this write-up, it received the coveted “Amazon’s Choice” label.

  • Enduring brush and comb composed of farmed bamboo (100% biodegradable and not damaging to the forests)
  • Pocket-sized and can easily fit into bag or pants pockets
  • 2-sided comb featuring both wide and fine teeth sides
  • Comb is anti-static and works well for wet or dry beards
  • Boar bristle beard brush cleans dirt with ease and generates natural oil production in the skin

When it comes to grooming kits for beard, the Grow a Beard set ranks high on the list—so high, in fact, that at the time of this write-up, it received the coveted “Amazon’s Choice” label.

No surprise here since the set features two very decent products in the form of a pocket-sized beard brush and a comb, both of which are made out of bamboo.

Now, I realize their durability might be a concern for you due to the fact that bamboo is weaker than wood, but let me assure you that regarding this aspect, you have absolutely nothing worry about.

The bamboo construction is sturdy as an oak to me. One issue that might worry you a little is the brush’s bristles which tend to shed off rather easily.

During the first few uses, the bristles barely came off, but now, I noticed they seem to shed bit by bit on each use.

Comments by other users concerning this problem were mixed when I bought it. Some said the bristles stay solidly in place with minimal shedding, while others were in the same boat as me.

Putting this issue aside, the brush itself works great and seems to be extremely well balanced in terms of firmness and softness.

The comb in this set has 2 handy sides to it—fine teeth on one side, and wider teeth on the opposite.

For fine hair straightening work, you’ll want to use the former, but the wider teeth side should fit most needs.

No complaints about the comb. It does a stellar job of smoothing and detangling beard hair, and also delivers on the comfort front.

The Grow a Beard set is good overall and its ridiculously low price tag is a big plus. I just wish the bristles on the brush wouldn’t fall out so easily.

5 Piece Grooming Kit with Signature Bourbon Cedar Fragrance by Olivina Men

Grooming Essential Kit Olivina MenGrooming Essential Kit Olivina Men

This is actually a full body grooming kit which includes a bottle of two-in-one shave prep and beard oil, an aluminum-free deodorant, an exfoliating all-in-one scrub, a conditioning cream, and an all-in-one body wash.

  • Body grooming kit that contains 5 different products, one of which is a shave prep and beard oil
  • All products are naturally pure, certified organic
  • Rugged cedar and bourbon scent, not overpowering

While it certainly is nice to have 5 different grooming products all conveniently packed in a single box, this Olivina Men kit is pretty average overall.

I will give the oil top marks because it’s such a treat for the beard. The non-overpowering cedar and bergamot scent is fantastic, but still, I wish the bourbon scent was a bit stronger in the other 4 products.

The packaging says “Cedar Bourbon,” but I detected way more cedar than bourbon.

Another minor annoyance is the deodorant’s lack of longevity as the scent usually dissipates within a few hours.

To be fair, it’s a natural kind of deodorant, and the natural ones are not known to last an entire day.

Conclusion of Beard Grooming Kit Reviews

All told, these are straight up the best beard grooming kits for your money, but the one I would consider as the cream of the crop is Jack Black’s grooming kit

Every single item from that kit oozes quality, from the beard wash to the beard oil. This incredible package offers just about everything a proud beard owner could hope for.

The beard grooming kits by Rapid Beard and XIKEZAN are tied as my second choice. I don’t think either one is better than the other.
