Birchbox Breakdown

No matter how much care you put into your shaving routine, daily razor drag is bound to occasionally leave your face like red, scorched earth. Luckily, there’s a remedy for desert face. This cooling aftershave is like a downpour after a long drought, relieving redness and irritation while repairing, protecting, and hydrating skin with aloe vera, chamomile, and cucumber.

How to Use

After shaving and washing your face, squeeze out a dime-sized amount of this cooling aftershave into the palm of your hands. Rub hands together and apply to the freshly shaved area.

Bought this only because I love their Slickwater so much. Cool Face most definitely takes care of post-shave redness and irritation, and this product is good for those who like the burn of a splash or the cool of a menthol product. Very mild scent, and organic.

Nice aftershave

Got this as a gift for my son who is a novice shaver. It's gentle and good to use after an electric shaver. He is really enjoying the cooling effect and moisturizing benefits.

Use it daily, your skin will thank you

This was first non-box sample purchase. I need a post shave and I wanted something on the thinner side. It goes on nice and light and you can actually feel it hydrating your skin, nice experience. I use it on days I don't shave as a base before spreading moisturizer. Fragrance leaves a little to be desired, hence the 3 star review.

"Splash of hydration" for sure

I bought a full size one based on the sample in my BB. I absolutely love this product. I use a small amount and it makes my face hydrated and leaves it clean feeling. After patting on my face, I rub the rest on my hands like a moisturizer (my face and hands are hydrated for the rest of the day). Bravo!

The most soothing aftershave

Most aftershaves or face lotion will burn when used after wet shaving or DE. This does not and absorbes very well. John Allen is the new standard for me, by far my favorite.
