Burt's Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Aftershave Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Burt’s Bees, Drugstore.com, and CVS.
Scent: Mildly masculine blend of bergamot, orange, patchouli, fir, and rosemary.
I like: the lotion’s gentleness, light consistency, all natural ingredients, mild scent, and versatility – it works as an aftershave/moisturizer. Not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: nothing.

Burt’s Bees Natural Skin Care for Men Aftershave works well on practically any skin type.  Just because the packaging says “aftershave” doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an everyday moisturizer – it’s versatile, though you’ll need to apply a facial sunscreen with this product if you’re going out during the day .  Because the lotion is 100% natural, it is ideal for those with sensitive skin who tend to breakout when using products with synthetic fragrances.  The subtle, naturally masculine scent is just right – it’s a blend of bergamot, lemon, orange, patchouli, fir, and rosemary.  If you’ve been using synthetic or alcohol-based aftershaves, now is the time for you to transition to more natural alternatives.  Start by trying this great moisturizer.

King Of Shaves Alphagel Shave Gel Sensitive Skin Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at TargetRemington, and King of Shaves Direct.
Scent: Cool blend of tea tree oil, spearmint, and camphor.
I Like: the gel’s cooling effect.  It’s an excellent value.  Not animal tested.  Made in the UK.
Not a fan of: the sodium laureth sulfate.

Not long ago, I was still using shave gel in a can.  I thought the thick foam from canned shave gels and creams made for superior, less-irritating shaves.  I was wrong.  Most canned shaving products contain synthetic ingredients that can actually dry out and irritate sensitive skin.  For those of you with sensitive skin still searching for a reasonably priced shave gel in a tube, may I suggest trying King of Shaves Alphagel Shave Gel.  It contains aloe vera and tea tree oil to help soothe your skin.  The gel’s translucence eliminates the guesswork in shaving – you see exactly where your blade is touching your skin.  The energizing blend of spearmint and camphor cools and helps to wake you up in the morning.  It has a medicinal, but tolerable scent – I actually like it.  Try using this shave gel if you’re on a budget and have sensitive skin.

C.O. Bigelow Barber Hair & Body Wash Elixir Red No. 1608 Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★

Price: $ ($10) – Available at C.O. Bigelow.
Scent: Potent blend of spice, red currant, fig, and sandalwood.
I Like: the versatility of the product – made for hair and body.  
Not a fan of: the strong fragrance, sulfate ingredients, and paraben preservatives.

The C.O. Bigelow Barber Elixir Red No. 1608 Hair & Body Wash is ideal for use post-workout or pre-dinner date.  Its strong scent ensures any trace of body odor is, at the very least, masked.  Trust me, you won’t need to apply cologne after using this cleanser.  Don’t use this product on your face – the potent fragrance and sulfate ingredients could potentially over-dry the skin and cause breakouts.  Those who enjoy strongly scented masculine products may want to give this hair and body wash a try.
