If you read beard care blogs, or watch any instructional videos, no doubt you've at one time or another encountered a post or a video or whatever outlining the difference between beard butter and beard balm...I'm not going to bore you with the nuts and bolts of it (especially considering that there a ton of great videos out there already, that go into way more detail than you'd ever need about the differences). All I'm going to say on the matter is that it is important to have at least one example of each if you want your beard care lineup to be complete. Detroit Grooming Co beard butter has earned a reputation as one of the best on the market. I've been wanting to give this stuff a try for a little while now...lets see if it lives up to the hype, shall we?
Sometimes all you can say is wow! Vetiver jumps right out at you initially, along with a slightly floral component that I can't quite put my finger on. This developes into a warm well rounded amber, and finally settles into a woodsy, sort of musky basenote...and bourbon? So much yes! This scent could be bottled as a cologne, it's just that awesome! It isnt particularly strong, but it definitely leaves a pleasant sillage in your wake...
How does it work?
This stuff warms and spreads like...well...butter. It works easily into your beard, and offers an insanely wonderful amount of hold, and it remains workable for hours after application. There seems to be a fair amount of shea butter in this formulation which is obviously great for your face...but really seems to be one of the secret ingredients in making your beard behave exactly the way you want it to. Your face and beard will feel nourished and healthy all day long, and the exceptional control this product offers will have you looking as sharp as you feel!
The bottom line
If you've never tried beard butter before, you need to...If you have tried it before, you haven't tried one this good. Either way, there is no excuse not to pick this stuff up ASAP!
