    Just had around three inches off of mine. After growing it out to get the shape I wanted.

    Tidier and my cheek lines are nice and high again.

    I'd look boring without a beard as I razor my head.

    My wife has suggested I must keep the beard.... Maybe for the same reason :cry:

    Thanks for the tips! Never used beard oil. Got to be careful with that, I have full body atoic eczema, so need to be weary of what i put on my skin.

    I'll try find some delicate ones, or fragrance free.

    Maybe something with jojoba, Googling "beard oils for eczema" seems quite successful.

    Also don't worry about any patches. In time they get filled in. I remember when I was younger someone said I had a couple of patches so I would "never" be able to grow a full beard. How wrong they were :)

    You could try Argan oil as it doesn't block pores and fragrance free I have seborrhoeic dermatitis and get beard drandruff and it helps, Just do a patch test 1st for a few days

    I used beard oils. Trick is not too much as i used too much and broke out. I not used it for some time now though.

    I use a beard shampoo once a week.

    Yup I've had loads of these. Mostly they consist of slipping with the razor and then, for some unknown reason, I continue to shave the rest of my beard off. No one needs to see that.
