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.

Scent: very subtle hint of geranium.
I Like: how the lotion is light and easily absorbed.  Keeps the skin moisturized without that greasy feeling.  Not tested on animals.
Not a fan of: the paraben preservatives.

Murad’s Face Defense SPF 15 lotion for men moisturizes well without leaving my skin feeling greasy, which is relatively rare for a sunscreen.  The lotion absorbs quickly, almost immediately after applying.  Its scent is hardly noticeable – those with a keen sense of smell might detect a hint of geranium.  This lightweight facial sunscreen does not come cheap – a two-ounce tube lasting 1-2 months costs $33.  If you have the disposable income to spend on an effective, non-greasy facial moisturizer with sunscreen, try using Murad Man Face Defense SPF 15.  You just might like it.

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.

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.

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.

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.
