A: Both are excellent conditioners for your beard and skin. Most often oils and balms are used in conjunction with each other in daily routine. Schmuck’d Up Beard Balm melts at body temperature when rubbed in the palms of your hands and goes on like an oil. The big difference between balms and oils is the hold that balm adds due to the beeswax.
A: Ensure that your beard is dry (Oils and water don’t mix so if your beard is wet it will appear greasy.) Scrape a dime sized amount with the provided pick or the back of your thumbnail. Place balm in the palm of your hand and rub hands together. The balm will melt and should be the consistency of oil. Starting at the base of your beard, work the balm into your beard and roots. Style and Enjoy.
A: Ensure your beard is dry (Again oils and water do not mix). Shake beard oil to distribute the scent. Use the provided dropper to apply your desired amount into the palm of your hand. Rubs hands together and work oil into beard, starting at the base and working your way out.
A: That is personal preference. Everyone has their own routine. Schmuck’d Up Beard Balm does contain a high percent of oil, so if oil is applied beforehand only a small amount is needed.
A: Yes! If your beard balm has turned gritty it is totally fine. It will still melt in the palm of your hand and work as intended. The reason a balm turns gritty is due changes in temperature. Remember that the balm melts at body temperature so when its exposed to heat the product melts. The fats and proteins solidify at different temperatures during the cooling process. There are no harsh chemicals used to stabilize the fats and proteins in the oil like commercial products.
If you would like to smooth the balm out you can remove the balm from the container and place into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in small intervals until melted. Place tin in the refrigerator and pour melted balm into tin. Allow to cool and solidify in fridge. Once cooled use as before.
