Anthony Logistics for Men After Shave Balm

Anthony Logistics for Men After Shave Balm Ingredients List Caulfields Counter Mens Grooming Male Skin Care Shaving

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 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.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion Caulfields Counter Male Skincare Mens Grooming Toner Product Review

Overall Rating: ★★★★☆
Price: $$$ ($30) – Available at Origins and Macy’s.
Scent: Light blend of chamomile, lavender, patchouli, and orange.
I liked: the product’s unique ayurvedic scent as well as its soothing and hydrating properties.
I didn’t like: nothing.  This is a great toner for sensitive skin.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion works very well as an aftershave splash and refreshing skin toner.  I’m normally not a big fan of face toners and astringents as they usually contain alcohol and do more harm than good.  However, this “lotion” (which is really a splash) is alcohol-free and contains a number of plant-based ingredients that help soothe and hydrate the skin.  I really enjoyed the product’s calming scent, which is a light blend of chamomile, lavender, patchouli, and orange.  As with all toners the Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion should be used after washing and before moisturizing.

Ahava Soothing Aftershave Moisturizer for Men

Ahava Soothing Aftershave Moisturizer for Men

Ahava Soothing After-Shave Moisturizer (Texture)

Overall Rating: ★★★☆☆
Price: $$$ ($20-$30)
Scent: Slightly floral. Difficult to decipher exactly what the smell is.
I liked: the rich texture and compact shape. Feels more like a moisturizer than an aftershave.
I didn’t like: the paraben preservatives and strong fragrance.

My experience with Ahava’s Soothing After-Shave Moisturizer for men was fairly good. The scent is subtle and not particularly masculine. It lacks any sort of brisk quality – there’s no “cooling” factor whatsoever. However, the cream does a great job at moisturizing. The product has a heavier consistency – like a thick, waxy lotion. Its compact packaging makes it ideal for travel. If you’re comfortable spending $30 for a 1.7 ounce bottle of an aftershave with a subtle floral fragrance that functions well as a moisturizer, then Ahava’s Soothing After Shave Moisturizer may be the product for you.
