Beardilizer is one of the most popular beard growth vitamins ever sold and also the most heavily marketed supplement for the purpose of aiding beard growth.
Because of this, the internet is full of Beardilizer reviews, and most of them are absolutely praising the stuff as the next best thing since sliced bread…
But the thing is that you can’t really take these reviews at face-value, because the reviewers themselves link to the product with their affiliate links, and the more people buy it, the more money they make.
This obviously makes them ignore all the flaws, and hype up all the tiny benefits, just in hopes of earning a quick buck.
Our Beardilizer review is a bit different. We don’t earn any commission if you buy it, and we look at the ingredients, price, and other factors with 100% objective view.
So, does Beardilizer work to improve your beard growth, and should you buy it? Let’s figure that out. ↓

Beardilizer Ingredients Explained
As said above, Beardilizer is a beard vitamin, and by definition, the ingredients are vitamins and minerals (micronutrients).
It does not have all the necessary vitamins and minerals you would expect to see, but it does still list vitamins A, C, E, most of the B-complex vitamins, and the minerals iodine and copper.
On top of the micronutrient-blend, Beardilizer also has its own blend of things like MSM, methionine, cystine, PABA, and a herbal extract of Horsetail (Equisetum Arvense).
The most important question is…
Do any of these ingredients improve your beard’s health and growth rate?
And the answer is, yes, sort of.
There’s research suggesting that multiple vitamins and minerals are necessary for the healthy growth of all bodily hair, and you also need them to synthesize testosterone and DHT, which are the primary beard growth hormones.
“However, Beardilizer has quite a low number of vitamins and minerals in it, and it misses some of the most important ones for facial hair growth and the hormones associated with it.”
For instance, there’s no vitamin D (which is known of its hair follicle maturing effect and testosterone boosting benefits).
There’s also no vitamin E (which is well-proven to stimulate the production of the androgenic beard growth hormones).
Looking at the minerals, I can only see two of them (iodine and copper).
While they are both important for beard growth, the formulation is still missing the most important beard minerals like zinc, magnesium, boron, and selenium.
As for the blend of herbs, MSM, and amino acids; there’s currently no research that would suggest any of them do anything for facial hair growth.
Some of the ingredients in Beardilizer may slightly promote beard growth, especially if you’re deficient in those vitamins, but overall, the amount, quality, and choice of ingredients in the formulation are severely lacking.
You could get much more vitamins and minerals in higher-quality by getting a basic multivitamin such as this one, which would also be cheaper at the same time.
Beardilizer is Expensive (Price-per-Capsule)
After looking at the price quickly, you could go something like this…
“Oh, about $30, not too bad for 90 capsules”.
However, if you look more closely, the serving size is 3 capsules per day, which means that each bottle will last for just a month.
The cost-per-capsule ends up being 30 cents, which is very high in the multivitamin business, and Beardilizer simply does not match the quality you would expect from such a high price tag.
For a quick example, you could go to Amazon and get this low-cost multivitamin supplement from Centrum for a lower price than Beardilizer.
It comes with 250 tablets, the serving size is 1 tablet per day, and each of the tablets provides more vitamins and minerals in higher amounts than Beardilizer does.
To put that into perspective, the Centrum multivitamin still has cost-per-tablet at $0.09, while Beardilizer has a much lower amount and lower quality of ingredients at $0.30 per capsule.
But Beardilizer is a Special Beard Supplement?
I hear this all the time when I tell people to just buy regular multivitamin and mineral supplements over dedicated beard supplements.
“You can’t compare a beard vitamin to a normal multivitamin, they’re not formulated for our beards!”
Sure, Beardilizer, Vitabeard, Beard Grow XL, etc might be “specially formulated for facial hair”, but just by looking at the ingredient lists, you can see that there is nothing special in there that would warrant such claim.
They are just the same vitamins you can find in your average kitchen-sink multivitamin, with just a big beard logo and claims of growing your facial hair in the bottle.
The reason they sell so well and are so insanely popular has to do with the fact that beardless men and those who are trying to fix their patchy beards are desperate.
They want a quick fix, a magic pill that would guarantee better growth of facial hair so that they could finally grow a thicker beard that they always wanted.
The manufacturers of Beardilizer – and any other beard supplements – are smart for tapping on to this desperate buying market, and I can guarantee you that they’re printing money because of it.
Beard vitamins are just one of the many beard growth products that are flying off the shelves. There’s stuff like beard growth serum, beard growth oils, and many others…
All promising massive benefits, while providing little to no evidence.
Beardilizer Before-Afters, Claims, and More
Even though there are apparently thousands upon thousands of Beardilizer customers out there (based on the fact that they have thousands of reviews alone), they are still unable to provide any decent before-after proof that it would actually help beard growth.
This is a common theme among beard growth products in general, and so far the only effective solution that has thousands of unaltered before-after pictures showing improved beard growth is the hair loss drug minoxidil (which isn’t even marketed for beard growth purposes).
Now does this mean that Beardilizer would be a scam?
No, I don’t think it’s a scam. It’s just pretty expensive, and the ingredients are nothing special. It’s comparable to a very inexpensive kitchen-sink multivitamin, yet it comes with a price tag that would warrant a much better formulation.
You could simply get much better bang for your buck by purchasing a cheap normal multivitamin supplement like this one, or even by purchasing a similar price multivitamin with insanely high quality of ingredients such as this one.
And this isn’t just to pick on Beardilizer. I have this opinion for every beard vitamin company currently out there.
I do have to give some credit to Beardilizer though for making some amazing marketing material…
Just take a look at this music video parody they produced:
Beardilizer is not a scam, but not a good beard growth supplement either in our opinion.
It does have some important vitamins your beard needs, but still, you can get these vitamins and many more in higher quality and quantity by purchasing a regular low-cost multivitamin instead.
Even though it’s “specially formulated for beards”, there is nothing in the ingredient list that could support this claim.
