You know the beard is a good look for men when you can turn to pretty much any country and see men rocking bad-ass beards. In this article, we’re going to focus in on the UK and discuss the 10 best beard oils in the UK.
1. Coffee and Nutmeg by Beard Juice
This oil is relatively new in the market as it was only launched a couple of years ago. It has an unusual combination of coffee and nutmeg – imagine waking up to that heavenly aroma! The coffee flavor is not overpowering, rather it is refreshingly mild. The nutmeg is warm and reminiscent of autumn. With an oil like this, you can be pretty sure that the scent lasts all day. You can choose between the 10 ml and 30 ml bottles and you will find that it is moderately priced (£ 6-£10). A little goes a long way so you won’t regret it.
2. Ricki Hall’s Booze and Baccy Beard Oil by Captain Fawcett
This one is perfect for men who love the woodsy aroma of tobacco, frankincense and maple. The scent is warm, sweet and exotic as the oil consists of a blend of essential oils ranging from sweet orange, bay, vanilla beans and fresh hops. You will find that your beard gets a lot softer after using this beard oil. The oil has been made in collaboration with model Ricki Hall.
3. Baron Bergamot & Orange Beard Oil by The Bearded Gent
10 ml of this wonderful beard oil costs only £5 and I love the fact that it contains two of my favorite essential oils-bergamot and orange. They certainly make an alluring combination. It also has a high Vitamin E content which will leave the unruliest of beards, softer and shinier. Men who have just started to grow their beards will also benefit from this oil as it soothes itchiness and irritation.
4. Premium Beard Oil by Mo Bro’s
MoBro’s premium beard oils consist of Argan oil, Jojoba and Vitamin E oils and it is proudly made in the UK. The scent is amazing and I gifted it to a friend who had a dull, lifeless beard. He used it for several weeks and came back saying that the oil was like a breath of fresh air for his beard. Not only did he feel his beard was stronger; it was also shinier and his skin felt more hydrated than he had ever experienced. While you are there, do try their Winter Spice, Sandalwood and Cedarwood oils too. They also have beard oil kits so you get to sample different beard oils. This is certainly one of the best beard oils UK brands out there.
5. Mango Beard Oil by Bedfordshire Beard Co
Bedfordshire Beard Co Mango Beard Oil is made in small batches and is blended in-house. The exotic, tropical and fruity scent of mangoes lasts all day long. If you use this beard oil for a few days you will find that your beard will be softer and more manageable. Even if you just keep a goatee you will love the after-shave like cooling and hydrating effect the oil brings on. It is non greasy and easily absorbed into the hair and skin.
6. Grave Before Shave Beard Oil by Viking Blend
If you like unscented beard oils, this is the one for you. It has a very light consistency which makes it easy-to-absorb in the hair and skin. I think this oil is suited for shorter, trimmed beards and not the longer ones, as it may not be able to tame frizzy, dull and fly-away hair. In such a case, you might do better with heavier beard oils or balms. It contains tea tree oil which makes it suitable for dandruff, fungal infections and itchiness etc.
7. Forest Beard Oil by Huntsman Beard Co
This wonderful product advertises that their products will make you more ‘kissable’! Men who have tried this best beard oil UK agree – it does make the beard softer, shinier and more manageable. If you just use a few drops and your skin and hair feel calmer, more manageable and without any irritating dryness. The essential oils used in this beard oil also help prevent ingrown hairs. I love the fact that the scent is not overpowering and the best part is you also get a follow up email advice when you buy it from this online retailer.
8. Premium Beard Oil For Men by Gentlemens Face Care Club
This soothing and delicately (vanilla) scented beard oil will leave your beard hair cleaner and your skin softer. You won’t have to suffer from itchiness anymore and your beard will get that clean, just-washed look and feel. It contains Rosehip, Jojoba and Apricot oils along with other essential oils that condition, nourish and soothe your beard, while the grapeseed oil relieves itchiness. The woody aroma lasts only a few hours but the shine to your beard will last all day long. Did I mention: it works great on dandruff?
9. Zeus Beard Oil by First Olympian
Looking for that complex, mysterious, slightly citrusy scent in your beard oil? Then you are going to love First Olympian products. This is a small family owned company from Durham in the North of England and their oils are known to tame the unruliest of beards. Each of the beard oil bottles come with small stoppers which makes it convenient to take the requisite amount.

10. Percy Nobleman’s Beard Oil by Percy Nobleman
This is a wonderful deep conditioner for beards and you can use it irrespective of the length of your beard. A small bottle lasts for months and it is also moderately priced. Many publications including the Daily Mail and The Independent have rated this as one of UK’s best beard oils. The oil contains Jojoba, Argan, Avocado, Sweet Almond and Black seed oils. The Castor oil in this brand is especially useful for growing hair on sparse beards; so you will notice more body and shine with regular use of this oil.
