"Dry Beard" is a great name for a pirate or band. It's far less appealing when used by the person who curls up to you at night. Thus the motivating force behind the makers of Brooklyn Grooming Beard Oils, who make use of one of the most powerful moisturizers around: hempseed oil. While smoking certain parts of the hemp plant tends to leave you parched, hempseed oil, on the other hand, works as a moisture-retaining emollient that results in soft, conditioned facial hair with a layer of shine. It's extremely mild and unscented (though with a little herbal tinge) and works best for medium-length beards or anyone with sensitive noses. [$29 for 1 ounce; brooklyngrooming.com]
