Still in 2020 not all men feel comfortable to talk about grooming regimes and even worse they don’t know what products are available to them or how to use them. I spent years selling mens grooming products and one particular question kept cropping up… “How exactly do you use beard oil?”
I understand not all men are as confident as others when it comes to buying new grooming products, more often than not its due to a misunderstanding and overcomplicated directions for use, so here is my simple step-by-step guide to help you understand how to apply beard oil.
The short answer:
Apply 2-3 drops of beard oil in the palm of your hands, rubbing them together to spread the oil. Then, comb your hands through your beard pushing up against the hair working the oil throughout. Continue to massage into your hair then finally use a beard comb or brush to reshape your beard into your desired style & that’s it, simply leave the oil in for your beard to soak up all the natural goodness. (For best results apply beard oil straight after a hot shower- so your pours are open and your beard hair is softer). I like to apply some just before bed too!
Tom’s : How to apply beard oil tutorial
For this detailed tutorial we will be using Gentlemen’s Chuckaboo ‘The Mojito Elixir’ beard oil – a personal favourite and a best seller. This oil contains luxurious argon oil which has numerous benefits, such as being deeply nourishing & hydrating for the hair and skin. You can buy the Elixir Mojito Beard Oil by clicking here.
Squeeze the pipette to fill the applicator with beard oil. Just one squeeze will be enough.
Squeeze 2-3 drops (or as much as you want) in the palm of your hands.
Rub the oil in to the palm of your hands to ensure a more even spread in your beard.
Begin to massage the oil deep through your beard working backwards against the hair. Use your fingers to act as a comb and ensure all the oil is spread evenly up through your sideburns and under your chin.
Don’t forget to work the oil up through your moustache twizzling it through your fingers. Finally, pat down your beard or use a beard comb to flatten the hairs to your desired shape.

How often should I apply Beard Oil?
If you are new to beard oil we recommend using it once a day, in the morning & after a hot shower. Before long it will become part of your daily grooming routine and you will notice the benefits. Over time, if you feel your beard could do with more oil, try applying it twice a day, once in the morning and again at night.

Gentlemen’s Chuckaboo Beard oil works wonderfully on any skin type, they use 100% natural essential oils and base oils which are essential to keeping a healthy beard and help nourish the skin underneath.
