I actually tried beard oil for the first time ever this year. Wife hates my beard but said it made me less prickly. The beard only comes after our final tradeshow of the year in November until the Steelers lose and the rest of the time it goes down to the goatee. I like it but the lack of kisses means it doesn't stay around too long. I still use the oil on the goatee, but that bottle will last me a while. When I run out I'll keep this in mind just in case.
