Is Blackbeard for Men easy to use?

Arr, you bet, matey! Application time is usually under a minute. You just brush it on. If ye accidentally apply too much or get some on your skin, just wipe it off with a tissue.

Using a beard brush, you can smooth and blend it for a stubble look or add a touch of sheen if you like by adding a drop of beard oil. If ye want to leave a little gray for a natural look, go for it. Blackbeard for Men Formula X dries in about a minute or so. Even then, you can still lighten/blend the color using a tissue or beard brush.
