    pretty funny lol but I’m all for the big bushy beard that never gets shaved so I’ve got no need for a beard trimmer as when It does need a tidy up I just use scissors but love the post anyways. Would be cool if you could review more beard care products like shampoos and oils. Thanks

    Hi, I’m 25 now and have pretty much been trying to grow a beard(on and off, not all the time) since i was about 20. It just ends up patchy and doesnt really fill in at the sides. Is there any advice you’d give or am I just incapable of growing a beard dya think?
