I've been using Anchor beard balm (grooming balm) for many years. I also use the beard oil on weekends when I'm looking more relaxed than weekday professional.
I never have much thought about using anything other than shampoo on my beard. One day I felt like trying out the beard soap and ordered it on a whim. Upon first use, I realized that I've been wasting time using anything else. It smells F'n amazing. Makes my beard whiskers soft and manageable. I love it so much that if I run out of it without a backup bar in the house, I don't think I'll even bother cleaning myself at all. Just buy it.
What I love about it:
• Natural, clean ingredients. That's a big plus.
• Unscented is great. It's super hard to find unscented hair clay.
• Great value. Really large jar for the price.
• The hold is medium, in my opinion, and doesn't last more than a few hours in my hair. Adding more product makes it greasy.
I recommend this product just for the fact that the ingredients are natural and it's a great value, and I love to see entrepreneurs being successful and providing a quality product.... but I would say don't expect a super high hold. Oh, and the fact that they offer a 1 oz travel size for $9 is great-- a nice way to sample the product without paying too much. Give it a try!
This vegan pomade was better than I expected. Holds great, not too strong & not too light. Easy to rinse out and has a good look to it.
