Bossman soap and conditioner are the perfect combo for cleaning your beard. I’ve tried other artisan soaps and have found that they tend to strip too much of the oils out of my coarse beard and leave my skin drier than I prefer. Bossman’s soap however hits the perfect sweet spot for me...leaves my beard clean without drying me out! The conditioner is some extremely rich and thick stuff. If your beard isn’t too dirty I highly recommend just giving a good wash with just the conditioner and saving the soap for a good weekly washing. My only criticism would be that I wish the soap came in other scents other than pine, and I would love it if the conditioner smelled a little stronger, but to each their own...you can’t go wrong with Bossman’s perfermonce.
