beard grooming kit

Your bathroom cabinet needs a beard grooming kit

And we’ve found some of the best…

Been experimenting with facial hair while working from home? We don’t blame you. In fact, we’ve been tempted to try out a few new moustache styles ourselves. But with great facial hair comes great responsibility – so it’s time you invested in a few good products to keep that beard sleek rather than scraggly.

But each beard is different and what works for one might not work for another. Do you need beard wash or would a conditioner be more appropriate? Should you be using an oil or a balm to keep it under control? As usual, the best way to find out is with a bit of trial and error so, to get you started, we’ve picked the best beard grooming kits offering a bevy of trial-size products to help you perfect your new routine

Another British brand at the forefront of beard care, Murdock’s products are barber approved and its range more extensive than most – which means it pays to try out as many as possible. Alongside its shampoo (which also handily doubles as a body wash), there’s an all-purpose beard moisturiser, controlling sea salt spray and black tea cologne for that finishing touch.
