Maybe you arent into beard care (which makes the fact that youre reading an obscure beard blog sort of weird, but okay), the whole meticulous combing, blowdrying, styling whatever...maybe a cabinet full of oils and balms just isn't your thing...maybe youre too "cool" or "rugged" or whatever to worry about any of this...if you have a beard, you still need to keep it clean (I mean unless youre really gross). At the very least cleaning your beard should be as routine as cleaning any other part of your body. Now you could just reach for whatever shampoo is in the shower (after all, you already use it in your hair, and it seems to do a good job, right?), but wait...you do know that your beard hair is unique and as such requires special care. So regardless of whether you have a full blown obsession with beard care, or just want to rock some facial hair without stressing out over a ton of products, it's important to invest in a good beard wash to keep your beard looking and smelling as good as the rest of you. Breardbrand is one of the premier names in grooming products for men. As I've covered previously here at V&T, the white line is Beardbrand's entry level offering, available exculsively at Target stores. Lets check out this entry level offering and see how it stands up to other beard washes...
We went over how awesome the Lumberyard scent is in our review of the Beardbrand Lumbaryard Beard Oil. Anybody who has spent any amount of time in a workshop will surely be impressed by this amazingly accurate sawdust scent. The scent isnt extremely long lasting by beard wash standards, but does provide a nice base if youre looking to layer your beard scent.
How does it work?
Just a nickel sized dab of this stuff generates a ton of thick, rich, lumber scented lather, which does an amazing job of cleaning your beard. It is in no way harsh (as somebody who tends to be a bit of a clumsy eater, I find myself more often than not having to wash the residue of crumbs and sauces from various meals out of my berard on a daily basis), you can use this wash every single day without worrying about it being hard on your beard or stripping it of those oh so important oils. It also leaves your beard feeling soft and healthy, so if you areint into the whole blowdrying and and multiple combing/brushing's after your shower, you can just give your beard a quick towel dry, run a comb through it once, and be on your way, still knowing that your magnificent mane is looking clean and awesome!
The bottom line.
To put it simply, this stuff just plain works. Combining cleaning power, with gentile care, it's clear that this product was designed with beards in mind. And being part of Beardbrand's white line, you can pick this up at your local Target for roughly the same price (if not a little less) than most quality beard washes on the market. This is a must have product for anybody who even sort of cares about keeping their beard in great shape!
