About Dollar Beard Club

Dollar Beard Club is an online subscription service that delivers custom-made boxes of all-natural beard products to your door each month, including oils, balms, waxes, shower items, growth accelerators, and more.

Based out of Huntington Beach, CA, Dollar Beard Club was co-founded in 2015 by serial entrepreneur Chris Stoikos, who also founded CoolBox (a “smart” toolbox pitched on Shark Tank), Project CoPilot (a company that helps crowdfunded projects succeed), and RangeToGo (a portable driving range).

Dollar Beard Club’s Uncut Beard Co. branded products promise to deliver big savings, no fees or commitment, and exclusive events and offers to their 150,000+ members.

Low prices and large customer base aside, can you expect Dollar Beard Club’s products to help you “grow your beard like never before”? Even then, are they a better value than the competition?

First, let’s talk briefly about beard hair.

Beard Hair vs. Other Body Hair

Before puberty, most of the hair on a man’s body is known as vellus hair, which is soft and straight. On the scalp is another type of hair, known as terminal, which is longer, thicker, and darker than other hair on the body.

After puberty, however, most of a man’s body hair (with the exception of the head) turns into something called androgenic hair, which is thick, curly, and wiry. It looks and feels so much different than scalp hair because these follicles twist as a result of being exposed to testosterone.

Pro tip: The thickness and overall coverage of a man’s beard has a lot to do with the amount of testosterone in his body, which can’t be changed a whole lot using oils, waxes, and so forth.

However, you can make sure your body has all the essential nutrients it needs to maximize results within your genetic limits, including vitamin B5, C, and E; biotin, inositol, niacin, and more.

Because of their different texture and place on the body, beard hair typically requires different care than head hair. For example, because facial skin is more sensitive than scalp skin, a shampoo that works great for cleansing head hair could be overly drying for the face.

Because of its wiry, unruly texture, beard hair also typically requires more conditioning than does scalp hair, as well as specialty tools, like beard brushes and combs.

Given this, how does Dollar Beard Club claim to help? Let’s take an in-depth look at their lineup.

How Does Dollar Beard Club Work? What Uncut Beard Co. Products Do They Offer?

Dollar Beard Club offers customers a variety of different products they claim will help nurture your beard, improve its health and appearance, and deliver thicker results.

When building your kit, the process works over five steps:

Step 1: Choose Your Beard Oils

Dollar Beard Club tells us their Original and Sandalwood-scented oils can help provide nourishment and keep your beard “silky, smooth, and smelling manly.”

All their beard oils are made from natural ingredients and are free of chemicals and preservatives, which can help minimize beard itch, improve shine without greasiness, and repair damaged hair.

The Original Scent includes the following ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil, and Fir Needle.

With a woodsy and warm scent, DBC’s Sandalwood option features Sweet Almond Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, Argan Oil, and Jojoba Oil.

Step 2: Choose Balms & Waxes

Original & Sandalwood Balms

Dollar Beard Club’s nourishing balms promise to combine the benefits of oil and wax by encouraging growth, boosting hydration, softening rough hairs, and relieving dry, itchy skin.

This way, you’ll be able to control frizz and style your beard with ease. Original ingredients include:

Sandalwood balm includes the following: Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Sandalwood Oil, Beeswax, Coconut Oil, and Orange Oil.

DBC Beard Cream

If your beard needs a little taming, but you prefer to maintain a natural look, Dollar Beard Club claims their cream can condition and tame unruliness, while hydrating and nourishing skin.

We're also told their cream will help protect your beard against harsh climates and minimize itch while remaining non-greasy. Ingredients include:

Beard Wax

Made of pure beeswax, cedarwood atlas, lavender, shea butter, fir needle, and orange, Dollar Beard Club’s Wax claims to deliver control and shine, while keeping your beard and mustache healthy.

Step 3: Choose Your All-Natural Shower Items

Body Wash

According to Dollar Beard Club, their Body Wash’s cleansing formula can help leave you feeling “healthier, stronger, and ready to conquer the world.”

While it might come from a beard company, we’re told the product can be used all over your body to keep skin smooth and moisturized, blast away dirt, and leave behind a mild scent.

You’ll find the following ingredients in the Body Wash:

  • Saponified Organic Oils of Coconut
  • Organic Aloe Vera
  • Rice Bran Oil

Step 4: Pick Your Accelerators

  • Castor Oil
  • Rice Bran Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Cedarwood Essential Oil
  • Vetiver Essential Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Vitamin E

Growth Vitamins

This supplement contains a blend of botanical extracts and multivitamins that might be able to improve the health of your skin and hair, unclog oil glands, minimize irritation, and “prevent graying caused by nutrient deficiencies.”

Growth Vitamin Spray

After lightly spraying on your beard, we’re told the Growth Vitamin Spray will smooth and strengthen your hair, control dandruff, and leave your beard smelling fresh. Ingredients include:

Step 5: Need Accessories?

While these products won’t necessarily condition your beard, they could help it look better. These include a beard brush, standard comb, money clip, stainless comb, and sandalwood mustache comb.

With this out of the way, how much will you pay for these products?

Regardless of your order total, it appears you’ll pay a flat $3.99 for S&H.

According to the company’s FAQ, your recurring billing date is determined by your original signup date. So, if you joined on the first, your next shipment will be billed and processed on the first of each month.

All Dollar Beard Club memberships are billed on a month-to-month basis, although there are no contracts or commitments. You can cancel anytime by following these steps:

  • Go to Edit Box
  • Remove all items from your box
  • Click Update to save the changes
  • Follow cancellation steps

After their warehouse processes orders, however, no refunds or cancellations are available on Dollar Beard Club products.

As you can see, despite what the company’s name might lead you to believe, the only product available for $1 is their oil. And if that’s all your budget will allow, or if that’s the only product you’re interested in, you’ll pay 4X this amount in S&H charges.

What Can We Learn From Dollar Beard Club Reviews?

Although we’re told Dollar Beard Club has more than 150,000 members, there wasn’t a whole lot of online feedback for the company at the time of our research.

SoCalSessions

We found a fairly in-depth three-part review on SoCalSessions.com, who immediately liked the well-designed products and quality packaging.

Overall, they found them to have good smells that tended to last all day. They also experience softer, more manageable beards using them, although they noted that it might take several uses before delivering meaningful results.

In the case of the shampoo, the author mentioned that you’ll need a lot, which may not last a full month, depending on the length and thickness of your beard. They also felt that the beard oil’s price was great, but it doesn’t seem to come with a dropper.

Below these reviews, several commenters's provided feedback of their own, which referenced the inability to suspend a subscription (it can only be changed or canceled), website issues, and unresponsive customer support (this issue appears to have since been addressed).

Reddit Feedback

We also found nine user comments on Reddit, several of whom noted that they received more product than they could use in a month, leading to a lot of waste (again, you can’t suspend your subscription).

Many seemed to enjoy the quality of the products, however, but found their scent selection limited and didn’t appreciate that you can’t order kits without at least one bottle of oil.

Are There Other Subscription Services Like Dollar Beard Club?

There are certainly dozens of companies that offer beard grooming products, including options like Beardbrand and Beard Czar, although there are many popular competitors like TOPPBox, Beard Care Club, Beardology, The Roughneck Beard Company, Beard of God, and more.

On top of this, some existing discovery commerce companies like Cratejoy and Birchbox also offer beard-based subscription plans.

Compared to Dollar Beard Club, you’ll pay anywhere between $4.99 and $40 for these subscription options, while products from standalone retailers tend to come with much higher prices (but without any autoship program).

Will You Achieve a Better Beard with a Dollar Beard Club Subscription?

Because only some of their oils are priced at $1, along with the fact that you’ll have to pay a minimum of $3.99 S&H each month, it might seem like Dollar Beard Club’s name doesn’t fully represent what they offer.

However, they still tend to feature meaningfully lower prices than much of the competition and seem to come with high marks from customers, based on quality and performance.

This is despite the fact that WebMD indicates there’s little clinical evidence showing their ingredients can work as much more than fragrances, emollients, and moisturizers. This also appears to be the case for their hair supplement.

So at least from this perspective, they don’t seem to be a whole lot different than many other beard care products you’ll find out there.

In layman’s terms, what does this mean from an efficacy standpoint? Like those found in standard hair care products for your head and scalp, the ingredients in Dollar Beard Club products might help soften your beard and improve its feel, make it more manageable and tame unruliness, and increase its shine and boost appearance.

However, according to authoritative websites like WebMD, there’s little clinical evidence that they’ll help speed up growth, or—unless your beard is especially out of control—provide dramatic results from an appearance perspective.

Bottom line? If the price is your number one factor, then it could be difficult to beat Dollar Beard Club. And based on limited customer feedback, despite their competitive prices, they seem to deliver solid quality.

While you won’t be able to get a refund on your Dollar Beard Club products after being processed, the good news is that you can modify or cancel your subscription at any time, without any fees or further obligation.
