Beard grooming products got super trendy – new items and brands are popping up every week. And now the grooming suppliers want you to get an even more clean beard life with so called “Beard Wipes” – simple cleaning tissues, soaked with a cleansing lotion, sold at a premium price. I ordered a pack of the Beardilizer Beard Wipes – read my review and my final verdict of this product.
The video review
Clean beard on the go?
You know that issue: eating a delicious ice cream when it’s 30 degrees outside can easily mess up your carefully groomed beard – faster than a look. People around you are instantly teased to start joking about your accident. Now, you could easily clean it up with a wipe. But – secret law – there is none.
Beardilizer has the answer to these problems in form of their brand new Beard Wipes. In a nutshell, you can clean your beard on-the-go and they are antibacterial.

Our pharmaceutical-grade formula was designed for disinfecting and reducing bacteria in a matter of seconds. Every ingredient was chosen carefully to result in the best product on the market.

List of ingredients
According to the box, the product contains Aqua (Water), Alcohol Denat, Glycerin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum (Fragrance), Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Sodium Benzoate, Citric Acid, Biotin, Sodium Hydroxide.
The list is big enough and good to read. But PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil is an emulsion agent and according to Greenpeace one of the common micro plastics in cosmetics. Plus it’s greenwashed. -2 points in the overall ranking.
The box contains 10 separate Beardilizer Beard Wipes, each packed in a single sachet. It’s easy to open them.
The usage reminds a little bit of those refreshment tissues you get on long haul flights to clean hands after lunch. And this is what the beard wipes basically do: they leave a clean beard. Nothing else. That’s it.
They smell like a cleansing lotion with a fresh, manly scent. I liked the subtle fragrance – and it fades away after 5 minutes. The wipes leave a fresh feeling on the beard mostly caused by the scent.
7,99 USD / 9,90 CHF for 10 wipes. I got them at bodysport.ch, but Beardilizer sells them in their own shop as well.
It’s easy to take one and open it. But i.m.h.O. it’s too much packaging for what you get.
Where to buy
I got them online at bodysports.ch but I’m sure you can order them at your local markets too. Beardilizer has a nice webshop too, they sell them for 8 Dollars. Even I don’t like this product, it’s worth to check their other stuff btw.
I paid around 10 CHF for 10 wipes. In my opinion, that’s far too expensive compared to the result. I can also take a cheap pack of handkerchiefs and get a clean beard more or less for free.
I also don’t see the need for the additional and praised ingredients, because if you use a good beard oil every day, it will supply your beard with everything it needs.
