I bought this Portuguese aftershave balm, as I was searching for relatively natural balm which could replace the overly chemical Poraso Pre/Post I was previously using. Before I begin I bought this product through Leon at VintageScent.com at http://vintagescent.com/aftershave-balms-c-4/444-aftershave-balm-p-1 Allow me to heartily recommend Leon's store as a great place to buy a variety of hard to find shaving products. The 444 is probably one of the best balms I have used. It is also particularly interesting in how you can use it. You can use the balm on its own in the regular way and it will provide a great menthol blast, eliminate the most horrible razor burn and also moisturize the skin. You only need to use a small pea-sized amount an no more. However the unique way you can use 444 is to mix a small amount in your hand with you favourite aftershave splash and then apply this mixture to your face. So far I have used this method with Aqua Velva, Spanish Floid, Indian Version of Old Spice and Skin Bracer. In all cases the smell of the aftershave takes over the very neutral smell of 444, but your aftershave has now become moisturizing and has taken on the menthol blast properties of the 444. This is particularly great for me as alcohol based splashes tended to dry my skin out, but no more! Overall great product you should try.
