The Art of Shaving® After-Shave Balm

There’s a reason why Macaulay got his cheeks burned while he was home alone—and it wasn’t the separation anxiety. His mistake was reaching for an alcohol-based after-shave. Post-shave solutions that are alcohol-based will give you the hard slap in the face you may need to wake up, but there’s little other benefit to that acerbic sting. This after-shave balm is a nurturer, not a drill sergeant, cooling and soothing your freshly shorn pores with botanicals.

Nothing Too Specical

I don't shave too often, but I gave a trip so I could use this sample. It was okay. I didn't feel my face tighten up or reduce redness or anything that after shave's usually offer, and it was the unscented sample, so it was pretty boring in the smell department. I'm a lavender fan though, so that product might be a little more exciting, though for the price, you could get a lot of a cheaper product with the same results.

Take the burn out of shaving

Using this after shave balm in combination with the Kiehl's shave lotion I bought previously on Birchbox is the perfect shaving combination! Highly recommended!

It's alright, it smells decent but I don't feel it's worth the price in any universe. I love Art of Shaving but this left me feeling enh.

I love this product. Always have. It's not a product issue, but more of a Birchbox issue -- this was my first box and I specifically said that I don't shave (I recently grew a beard and don't really have a need for a specific after shave now), so I sort wonder why I answered all those questions if Birchbox just sends the same thing to everyone. In this case, the product still smells good and acts as a moisturizer as well, so I'll use it over time... just didn't really need it.
