Do you use an aftershave balm thinking it is the only post-shave product you need to apply before leaving the house?  If so, you may want to reconsider your post-shave skincare routine as many aftershave balms contain alcohol, which can over-dry the skin, and do not possess the sustained moisturizing benefits of face lotions.  While aftershave balms can soothe the skin immediately after shaving, their effect is usually temporary.  Face moisturizers, on the other hand, soothe AND keep the skin properly moisturized throughout the day.  Also, it’s generally easier to find face moisturizers with sun protection.  The next time you’re in the men’s skincare aisle debating whether to buy the aftershave balm or face moisturizer, get both…or just buy the moisturizer if you want to keep it simple.  Just remember to use a lotion with an SPF before going out.

Kiehl's Ultimate Mens After Shave Balm and Moisturizer (Texture)

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Kiehl’s, Nordstrom, and Barneys New York.
Scent: Light menthol, slightly medicinal.
I liked: the cream’s richness – you only need to apply a small amount.  This product did a great job at soothing and moisturizing my face after shaving.  Enjoyed the light menthol fragrance.  Contains a number of beneficial ingredients including avocado oil, sesame seed oil, vitamin E, and cocoa butter.
I didn’t like: the paraben preservatives.

Kiehl’s Ultimate Mens After Shave Balm and Moisturizer won me over as soon as I tried it.  I enjoyed how rich and thick this balm felt.  Natural ingredients such as avocado oil, sesame seed oil, olive oil, and cocoa butter helped to instantly soothe and moisturize my skin post-shave.  Because the cream is so rich, you only need to apply a small amount.  The light traces of menthol and camphor felt subtly invigorating.  You can use this product any time, day or night – not just after shaving.  This cream works particularly well in cold and/or dry weather.
