Beardsman Supply is an American beard product company from Mansfield, Texas. The company offers a wide range of handmade beard products with distinctive scents and pretty cool names.
This is the first part of a two-part beard product review series I will write for Beardsman Supply. The first part aims at reviewing two of their beard wash scents (funnily named “Dirty” and “Filthy”), two of their beard oil scents as well as the beard balms of the same scent. In the second part, I will review 3 beard oil scents, along with the beard balms of the same scent, as well as a whisker wax.

Dirty Beard Wash – The Fresh and Spicy One
Both beard wash scents sold by Beardsman Supply are quite similar, but fairly different at the same time. They both have a strong mint base, and some beardsmen may not find a significant difference between one or the other.
The difference lies in the use of peppermint for the Dirty scent and spearmint for the Filthy scent. Basically, peppermint contains a higher percentage of menthol, making it much spicier. On the other hand, spearmint contains a low percentage of menthol, making it milder, and it’s also much sweeter than peppermint.
That being said, let’s start with the Dirty scent. The peppermint aroma is very well-balanced. It feels fresh with spicy notes. The beard wash lathers perfectly, cleanses well and removes strong smells without any effort. I also found nice conditioning properties with this beard wash, as it doesn’t dry out my beard after use. The high-quality ingredients probably help a lot in that regard.
Filthy Beard Wash – The Fresh, Cool and Sweet One
The Filthy beard wash scent is also mint-based, as mentioned earlier. This one contains spearmint rather than peppermint.
The spearmint used in Beardsman Supply‘s Filthy beard wash scent helps make it cooler and sweeter than the Dirty scent. Both scents feel fresh, but I think the Filthy one is more refreshing. As for cleansing, it doesn’t the exact same great job as the other scent. Lathering is also identical.
I like both of these beard wash scents. As for making a choice, it all comes down to whether you prefer spicy mint or cool mint. Either way, if you like mint scents in general, you can’t go wrong with Beardsman Supply‘s beard wash.

Minted Beard Oil
The Minted beard oil scent is along the lines of the Dirty beard wash reviewed above. The blend is an agile mix of peppermint and mild notes of vanilla. This is one solid mint-based beard oil quite frankly. The peppermint aroma is not all over the place. It’s very well-balanced, and the vanilla notes help make the blend less minted and more versatile.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Minted beard oil:
Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Peppermint Oil, Pure Vanilla Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Vitamin E.
Minted Beard Balm
The Minted beard balm smells a bit like mint-flavoured chocolate. The company uses cocoa butter in their beard balms, which has obviously a chocolate smell. For that scent, this is a nice idea, as it brings sweetness to the mix. Furthermore, the use of vanilla oil also brings sweetness to this beard balm and also helps tone down the spicy character of peppermint.
This beard balm feels refreshing and rather sweet. If you don’t like the smell of mint and chocolate together, this may not be the right choice for you however.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the Minted beard balm:
Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Peppermint Oil, and Vanilla Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Vitamin E.
American Pine Beard Oil
Enough of the mint. Let’s talk about wilderness now!
The American Pine beard oil is for woodsy scent lovers. I must admit that this one surprised me. I’m not that big of a fan of conifer-like beard oil scents, but Beardsman Supply nailed it with that one. The combination of ingredients makes this blend a complex one. There are notes of cedarwood, pine needle, rosemary and tea tree. Pine can be hard to quantify and can easily become too present and steal the show when used in beard oil. This is not the case with the American Pine beard oil scent.
This is a spicy, woodsy and pine scented beard oil, of course. The difference with the other pine-scented beard oil I’ve used so far lies in the efficient balance of aromas. It doesn’t smell like pine exclusively. The cedarwood notes are pretty noticeable, and so is rosemary. In other words, it’s not just conifer-like, it’s woodsy with medium conifer notes.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the American Pine beard oil:
Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Pine Needle Oil, Rosemary Oil, Vitamin E, and Tea Tree Oil.
American Pine Beard Balm
Just like its Minted equivalent, the American Pine beard balm contains notes of chocolate brought in by the use of cocoa butter, but this time, they’re less present. The woodsy and conifer notes are strong, and the medium sweet notes of cocoa butter add a unique twist to this blend. This helps make this beard balm more accessible to beardsmen who aren’t driven towards woodsy scents in general.
Here’s the list of ingredients for the American Pine beard balm:
Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Pine Oil, and Rosemary Oil, Tea Tree Oil, and Vitamin E.
