Beard balms remain on the skin and hair for longer, offering greater moisturising properties, and so are the preference for when you have a longer beard. They're also best if you have dryer skin in general.
You shouldn't use large quantities of both beard balm and beard oil together, as they can make your beard too greasy, so start with a very small amount of each, and work your way up, as it will be a unique level to your own skin.
For a shorter or patchy beard, it's recommended to choose beard oil instead, as it's far more appropriate for a shorter beard.
