Game Day Aftershave: Soothing Balm

Old school aftershaves may work wonders on nicks and cuts—if you can bear the burn of an alcoholic splash. This serum-based balm doesn't sacrifice comfort for efficacy: Makandi root and black tea extract to soothe and cool the skin while naturally healing cuts and scrapes. Meanwhile, alpine willowherb extract relieves inflammation and pear cactus extract minimizes fine lines and wrinkles—what torturous formula can say that?

This is my new favorite aftershave. The cool feeling you get from this lasts longer than any aftershave I have ever tried. One little squirt is all you need.

Nice and doesn't burn
Sampled

Nice and doesn't burn. So many aftershaves literally burn your skin when you use them. This is a nice feeling without that horrible usual feel of so many aftershaves.

First free sample that lead to a purchase on birchbox
SampledPurchased

I really think this is a great product because it makes your face feel healed after shaving. I travel a lot, and the airplane drys out my face. I end up with those microcuts from shaving -- the irritating ones that don't bleed much but just sting like heck. This really does calm my face down, and I do have sensitive skin. It has a relatively neutral smell, and is quite effective at calming my face.

Really nice
Sampled

Really nice aftershave. Left my skin soft and comfortable. Smell is nice and not to harsh. Would use regularly. I defiantly recommend it for anyone that uses aftershave.

Nice Cooling effect
Sampled

Like the cooling effect but not a fan of the smell. That's my only down side to this product. But delivers on everything else that is said it does.

Love the smell
Sampled

Used it this morning. It has a bit of a vaseline-like feel to it but doesn't stay that way. It smells almost like a menthol, which is fine by me.

Excellent
Sampled

Very refreshing way to start the day, especially in the blast furnace known as August in Texas. Like getting snapped in the face with a cold wet towel, but in a good way. ;)

About 10 seconds in, right around the time you think you're fixing to go full-on Macauley in the aftershave scene on Home Alone, the tingle mellows out. Coffee optional.

Also refreshing after 18, or slap some on after a day spent crushing Bronsons and bikinis at Devil's Cove.

Great Product
Sampled

I got this in my box this month and really loved it. It truly hit it out of the park-- my wife can't stop talking about how good it smells, and it gives your face a cool tingle when applied.

Powerful!

Has great soothing properties. I have very coarse hair and sensitive skin. This product has successfully prevented irritation every time I used it.

Feels like aftershave should
SampledPurchased

I received this in my monthly birchbox sample and I purchased after. I'll continue to buy this stuff.

This balm is tingly and leaves a nice cooling sensation after shaving. It feels like how aftershave should feel without over-doing it. I get the cooling sensation for about 10-15 minutes after applying.
