The addition of a Beard Grooming Kit is not only a fast track way of upping your beard game, but can be one of the more affordable ways of getting a collection of premium products and goods. A beard grooming kit is a bundle of high-quality items that any guy would love to buy for themselves or receive as a gift. For those growing a beard for the first time or looking for a gift for a loved one or friend, the beard kit takes the pressure off buying the wrong item; as it lumps together a number of awesome tools and styling products like a fruit basket, but for guys. Wow? Did I just describe a manly box of awesome beard grooming kit items to a fruit basket? I really could have thought of a better analogy, but truthfully, it works.
Obviously, a beard grooming kit doesn’t include a basket; the kit usually revolves around a cool, stylish wooden box that can be used to keep all the new grooming care items together. These boxes, or kits, come in a wide range of designs, and most of the time the box itself is as great as the items in it.
For years, I had a bad habit of leaving my beard grooming products scattered around our washroom. There’s a window ledge in the en-suite bathroom of our bedroom where I would leave brushes, balms, and scissors laying about. My wife hated it, as it would be the first thing one would see when you walked into the bathroom. I always stood my ground but secretly hated having all my stuff so unorganized. So, last year when I received a beard kit from my wife for Christmas, she said the gift comes with a project. She asked me to add a couple of small shelves in our washroom to free up and organize my beard stuff. It took no time at all and gave me a little corner of the washroom all for my stuff, including my kickass beard grooming kit.
What’s in a Beard Grooming Kit?
Most beard kits include a new brush or wooden comb, some creams such as a beard balm or oil along with maybe some grooming tools like scissors. When looking for a beard kit, try not to be fooled by the box sets with too many things. Ideally, you’re after a beard grooming kit with four to five items. In fact, sometimes less is more, as you get more quality beard items rather than a bunch of stuff you won’t use.
When picking a beard grooming kit, always read the reviews and don’t get fooled my brands with heavy design. Branding in this industry plays a significant role in salesmanship. What you’re really after are reviews of the items by people who have purchased them before. Amazon is perfect for this.
If you’re concerned about the price, add up the cost of all the items individually in the beard grooming kit then factor in the expense of the box it comes in. Most of the time you’re going to get a deal by buying things as a group, but sometimes the box is a lot more than what it’s worth.
