Anthony Logistics for Men After Shave Balm Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$$ ($20-$30) – Available at Anthony Logistics for Men, Ulta, and Sephora.
Scent: Light peppermint and eucalyptus.
I Like: how the product soothes/cools the skin post-shave and the light peppermint fragrance.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives. 

Anthony Logistics for Men After Shave Balm is a fantastic light facial moisturizer made specifically to relieve razor burn and other types of post-shave irritation.  In addition to containing aloe and skin-nourishing vitamins, this balm uses allantoin and benzocaine to soothe freshly-shaved skin.  Despite the label stating that it’s “fragrance free,” there is a slight peppermint and eucalyptus scent  – similar to that of Noxzema’s Original Deep Cleansing Cream.  Overall, Anthony Logistics for Men After Shave Balm effectively moisturizes and soothes your skin without leaving behind a greasy film.  Final verdict: try it.

American Crew Post-Shave Cooling Lotion Ingredients List

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.

Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo Review Caulfield's Counter Haircare Hair Dandruff Cooling Men Women

An all-around great shampoo: Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo

Overall Rating: ★★★★
Price: $$ ($10-$20) – Available at Aveda.
Scent: Mint with subtle rosemary.
I Liked: the natural, refreshing scent and mild tingle.  My hair felt clean and my scalp felt energized after using this shampoo. Ideal for use on normal to oily hair.
Not a fan of: nothing. However, those with dry hair may want to explore other options or use this shampoo sparingly – maybe once every few days.

What I enjoyed most about using Aveda’s Rosemary Mint Shampoo were a) the scent and b) the cooling effect it had on my scalp.  The smell is a natural, invigorating blend of… drumroll please… rosemary and peppermint.  The fragrance is evident but not overwhelming – it’s just the right amount.  This shampoo left a pleasant, mild tingling sensation on my scalp.  I highly recommend this product for those of you with shorter hair who enjoy using a thoroughly cleansing shampoo, as it effectively lifts oil.

Aubrey Organics Men's Stock North Woods Shave Cream Review Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming Shaving Male Skincare

100% Natural and Cool: Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream

Aubrey Organics Men's Stock North Woods Shave Cream Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming Shaving Male Skincare

Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream Ingredients List

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $ (under $10) – Available at Aubrey OrganicsDrugstore.com, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Whole Foods Market.
Scent: Natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor .
I Like: that the product is made with 100% natural ingredients.  The cool, tingling feeling of the cream.  Less foam means you can see where you’re shaving.
Not a fan of: how the cream can occasionally clog the razor.

What I enjoy most about using Aubrey Organics Men’s Stock North Woods Shave Cream is knowing that it is made with all-natural ingredients and therefore less likely to cause major skin irritation.  The brisk, tingling sensation of the cream may not appeal to all people, but I really enjoyed it – it wakes me up in the morning and makes shaving a bit more exhilarating.  The fragrance is distinctly masculine – a natural blend of pine, eucalyptus, and camphor.  Those seeking a lot of lather should look elsewhere – this shave cream does not generate a lot of foam, but it helps provide a slick surface for your razor to glide on.

King Of Shaves Alphagel Shave Gel Sensitive Skin

King Of Shaves Alphagel Shave Gel Sensitive Skin Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Male Skincare Mens Grooming Shaving Cream

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.
