The Aftershave Balm surprised me. I was expecting something with a strong scent and perhaps a zing, like a traditional aftershave. This balm is smooth, like an oil, and makes your face feel happy. It’s luxurious, comfortable, and the perfect finish to a shave. After using it you might want a traditional aftershave or cologne for the smell they offer, but your face doesn’t need anything more to feel ready for the day. I’ve always used alcohol based aftershaves in the past and rather enjoy the brush soap in the face feeling. This balm is different. It’s an elevated experience. It’s better. Thanks!
