1. Best Bear Wash: Dr K Beard Soap

We’re starting our list of best beard oils with soap because washing your beard is every bit as important as treating it. Your regular shampoo is not a substitute for a proper cleanser, as it will strip your skin and beard of much-needed hydration and oil leading to flaky, irritated skin.

Dr K is a Cork-based brand that specialises in beard, bath and body care for men. This Beard Soap is a mild plant-based oil formulated with glycerine and panthenol to leave your skin feeling clean and your beard soft and shiny. Available in three scents and fragrance-free (above), €12.95.
