Think long and hard. What’s the one thing worse than bits of food stuck in your beard? That’s right. Beard dandruff. Nothing says “date night ruined” like getting up close and personal only to have someone shy away because of those tiny little skin flakes stuck in your facial hair.
The solution? Well one of them, at least, is beard butter. Trouble is, there are so many products on the market, it may be hard for you to pick one out. Whether you prefer your beard closely trimmed or opt for a more Gandalf-style approach to facial hair, check out Maestro’s Beard Butter before your next big night out.
WHY USE BEARD BUTTER?
Beard butter is a wonderful mix of beard balm and beard butter. In fact, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Imagine what it would feel like to take just a bit of Land O’ Lakes and press it through your fingers. At first, it’s a bit solid, right? But then it softens in your hands.
That’s beard butter. Exactly as you’d imagine. It’s created by blending plant-based (usually) oils or butters (the cosmetics kind, not the “moo” kind) so that it becomes the perfect combination of a tamer for unruly beards, soother for any (beard) itch and moisturizer for hair as well as skin.
Read: no more dandruff. All you’ve got to worry about now is that stray piece of cupcake in your whiskers.
WHAT MAKES MAESTRO’S BEARD BUTTER SO SPECIAL?
You could go to Walmart or CVS and find a number of beard butters to try. There are mango butter beard butters, maracuja oil beard butters (huh?) and even beeswax ones. You’ve got plenty of options. So what makes Maestro’s Beard Butter so great? The ingredients. The guys and gals at Maestro’s have done a great job of incorporating a variety of natural ingredients into each of their beard butter blends.
Maestro’s formula is unique as it’s water based rather than oil based. This not only makes it much more lightweight but it also decreases the likelihood of the beard butter irritating sensitive skin and causing acne or other breakouts.
Next up, coconut oil. Coconut oil is known for being rich in vitamins like E, K & Iron to help deeply moisturize beard hair. It’s also known for its anti-fungal properties.
Another key ingredient is natural lanolin. Lanolin softens and protects skin (and hair) all while creating a moisture barrier, meaning the nutrients in your beard butter are absorbed into your skin – and they’re not getting back out.
Maestro’s beard Butter also contains other top-secret ingredients. Okay, they’re not top secret. But they’re beneficial to your facial hair in a few ways. First, they’ll tame your unruly beard. Second, they’ll nourish it. Look for nutrient-rich ingredients like Castor Seed Oil, Abyssinian Oil (filled with Omega-9s) and Cocoa Seed Oil.

MAESTRO’S BEARD BUTTER REVIEWS
You’d be hard-pressed to find a bad review of Maestro’s Beard Butter. Here’s what people are saying:
- Maestro’s Beard Butters are light and creamy, and they don’t make your beard greasy

HOW TO USE MAESTRO’S BEARD BUTTER?
Whether you’ve got a bit of a woodsman’s scruff or a full and epic beard, you’ll need to follow these special instructions for applying Maestro’s Beard Butter.
- First, wash your beard. As you might imagine, Maestro’s has a product for that. For best results, use the scented beard wash which matches the scent of your beard butter.
- Next, pat your skin and beard dry. You can use a towel, but if you’re feeling extra-fancy, use a microfiber cloth. Don’t dry it all the way, though. Leave it just a little bit damp.
- All you’ll need is about a dime sized (or smaller) amount of beard butter. Using your fingertips, apply it to your beard. Don’t be scared to massage that stuff in there nice and good.
- Massage from the bottom up. In other words, start at your neck and chin and move your fingers upward toward your neck.
- Once you’ve applied your beard butter, you can style it any way you choose. Some men use a comb, but if you prefer you can use a beard brush for extra dandruff-fightin’ super powers.
- That’s it! You don’t need any other products except maybe a good set of clippers. Skip the beard oils and beard balms. Your Maestro’s blend has got you covered.
*For best results – only wash your beard two or three times each week. Unless you’re the type who gets pasta stuck in there.
If you’re looking for a way to get rid of ugly dandruff and build your reputation as the owner of a legendary beard, look no further than Maestro’s Beard Butter. With many natural ingredients and a scent for every preference, you’ll be dandruff free and have a super soft beard before you can say “Mark of a Man Beard Butter.”
