eShave After Shave Soother Lavender review Caulfield's Counter men's grooming male skincare

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender ingredients list review Caulfield's Counter men's grooming male skincare

eShave After Shave Soother Lavender Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at eShave and Amazon.
Scent: natural lavender.
I Like: the subtle scent.  Effectively soothes and moisturizes skin.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Many of us underestimate the importance of moisturizing immediately after shaving.  In addition to getting rid of hair, shaving removes a fine layer of skin (troubling thought, right?).  If you don’t apply an alcohol-free aftershave balm or moisturizer, your skin suffers – first with redness and irritation, and ultimately with premature aging.  eShave’s Lavender After Shave Soother helps to keep skin soothed and nourished throughout the day.  It’s a relatively light lotion with a relaxing lavender scent.  The lotion absorbs easily into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy shine.  At $27 for a six ounce bottle, eShave’s Lavender After Shave Soother is a healthy but worthwhile investment for those looking to maintain their youthful, good looks.

Kiehl's Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming Male Skin Care

Kiehl's Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Kiehl’s and Nordstrom.
Scent: Light menthol with a hint of citrus.
I Like: how light the moisturizer feels.  The cooling effect helps to wake me up.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives. 

Kiehl’s Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment for Men effectively moisturizes your face without making it feel overly greasy.  I enjoy how the lotion feels slightly cool – perfect for the mornings or any time I need a recharge.  It contains caffeine, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties – great for soothing razor burn.  Because this product doesn’t provide sun protection, it’s more ideal for use indoors or at night.  Sun worshippers needn’t worry – Kiehl’s also makes a sunscreen version of this moisturizer with a sun protection factor of 15.

L'Occitane CADE After Shave Balm Men Review Caulfields Counter Grooming Male Skin Care Soothing Razor Burn Irritation

L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm

L'Occitane CADE After Shave Balm Men Ingredients Caulfields Counter Grooming Razor Burn Soothing Irritation

L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm Ingredients List

Overall Rating:
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Nordstrom, Amazon, and L’Occitane.
Scent: Woodsy blend of juniper, sandalwood, and birch.
I Liked: how well this product worked as a moisturizer.  The balm effectively soothed my skin and provided relief from razor burn.
Not a fan of: the potency of the scent.  I would like this product even more if the scent was less obvious.

L’Occitane’s Cade After Shave Balm is more like a face cream.  Its texture is very thick, which makes it better suited as a fall/winter moisturizer.  At $30 for a 2.5 ounce tube, this balm is relatively expensive.  However, a little of it goes a long way.  You should be able to get at least  four months of use out of one tube.  I enjoyed the scent despite how strong it was.  The fragrance is a blend of juniper, sandalwood, and birch with a hint of baby powder – it sounds like an odd combination but those scents somehow work well together.  Try it if you have dry skin or constantly suffer from razor burn.

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Review Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming razor burn bumps ingrown hairs

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Ingredients Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming razor burn bumps ingrown hair

Zirh Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$$ ($30-$40) – Available at ZirhBeauty.com, Beautybar.com, and Amazon.
Scent: Subtle classic barbershop aftershave smell with a hint of citrus mixed in.
I Like: how the tonic soothes razor burn. Made from witch hazel, not alcohol. Pleasant masculine fragrance.
Not a fan of: the price. I’m accustomed to paying more for moisturizers, not toners.

Zirh’s Erase Aftershave Relief Tonic is one the few post-shave splashes I can recommend as it does not contain alcohol.  The calendula and chamomile ingredients are effective at soothing razor burn.  I’m not so sure about how well Zirh Erase works to treat razor bumps and ingrown hair.  It comes in a masculine-looking bottle – the dispenser has a small hole, which allows you to use the tonic sparingly.  One bottle should last you about 3-4 months with normal use.  This product does not moisturize so you’ll need to complement it with a face lotion.

Buy this product while you still can.  The Zirh brand is going away soon 😦

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Drugstore.com and Amazon.
Scent: Slight hint of tea tree.
I Like: the light texture and mild cooling sensation.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

American Crew’s Post-Shave Cooling Lotion is a versatile, lightweight after shave balm that also acts as an all-purpose face moisturizer.  The tea tree oil in the lotion helps soothe and disinfect, thus minimizing post-shave irritation.  I recommend this product to those with normal to oily skin.  Unless applied constantly throughout the day, this light lotion may not sufficiently moisturize dry skin.

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.
