Art of Shaving After Shave Balm Review – Lavender edition


Post Content

    Hey everybody and welcome to another review.

    In this article, I am going to focus on the art of shaving after shave balm review.

    Their art of shaving after shave balm actually made P&P’s official list of the best aftershave balms and their shaving cream also made our list of the best shaving creams as well.

    The scent that I am focusing on today is their lavender aftershave balm.

    They also have an unscented, sandalwood, and lemon scent that are available.

    This is definitely a premium aftershave balm and I was getting a lot of requests to do a review on it.

    Overall I am not the biggest fan of lavender compared to other scents for aftershaves, shaving creams, and colognes.

    I think that it is very easy to overuse lavender because it is such a powerful scent.

    But I have so many different sandalwood products, that I decided to switch things up.

    Also because a couple of friends recommended lavender to me, I decided to give it a try.

      Art of Shaving After Shave Balm Pros

      When I first applied this art of shaving after shave balm after my shave, I was pleasantly surprised at how mild the lavender smell was.

      Since I am sensitive to lavender, this was very important to me.

      There was still just a hint of lavender remaining approximately half an hour after the application.

      It did not interfere with the Cologne that I applied which is also very important to me.

      Since my skin is relatively sensitive, I am cautious of overly scented shaving soaps as well as aftershaves.

      Even if they are organic, they can sometimes bother me.

      I am pleased to announce that this product reacted very well with my skin.

      It resulted in very hydrated and moisturized skin with zero breakouts.

      During the second week of using this shaving balm, I decided to use it after shaving with one of my most aggressive safety razors (the muhle R41) and a brand-new feather blade.

      When I get an extremely close shave, typically I get a little bit of redness, especially on my neck.

      This aftershave balm significantly reduced the redness and irritation on the areas of my neck.

      Art of Shaving After shave Cons

      The biggest downfall for me is how expensive this shaving product costs.

      It costs $40 on right now for 3.3 fluid ounces of this product.

      I have never had any experience with it bothering my skin, but some online contacts in the male grooming industry have said that they didn’t react very well (to the lavender at least) with it.

      Art of Shaving After shave Balm Review Conclusion

      Overall, I really like this art of shaving after shave balm.

      Even though I am not the biggest lavender fan, this had a very mild scent to it which I could handle.

      It also dissipated quickly after application.

      The biggest benefits I noticed are the reduction in razor burn, even after using an extremely aggressive safety razor with a very sharp blade. 

      It is important to know how to use aftershave balm to get the right effect from it when shaving.

      And since I am such a huge fan of sandalwood, that is definitely going to be my next purchase from the art of shaving.

      And like all of the other men’s shaving products from the art of shaving, everything is packaged very elegantly and it looks fantastic on my shelf.
