Aqua Velva Original Sport

Item Description

So, I finally decided to get some Aqua Velva ; I was going to grab the original one, when I noticed a GREEN version , named " Original Sport ".

I don't think it's similar to the " Ice Sport". I couldn't find a pic of the Original Sport on the Internet, so It might be a new product.

I sniffed both the original Blue and the Green one, and I prefer the Green ; not that the Blue smells bad, but it's a little " GranPa".
The Green one is more modern, very citrusy, fresh.:001_tt1:

I bought it for on sale for 2.99 $ Cad.

As I have dry skin, I wanted to try a cheap alcoholic splash that has some glycerin. Plus, it's very humid here in Montreal during summer (thanks to the St-Laurent river.)

How I used it : I tried the Traderjoe's method (to avoid the drying effect) ; I applied it on a wet face (cold water, shaven area only) ; wow, refreshing, super cooling:w00t: .
It didn 't leave my face dried out (due to the heavy weather + TJ's method + added glycerine) ; however, once my face was matte, I followed with an alcohol-free balm, just to be safe.


Ok, stop reading, go buy some !!!!!

Pros: Scent, cooling, price
Cons: availability
This has become my go-to after shave. I love the cooling sensation. I love the scent. I love the moisturizing effect. I love the scent. It’s a great aftershave.

There is a bit of a burn when first applied (which is nice) but it fades quickly. The scent lingers throughout the day. The only downside is availability. It can be hard to find. Definatley worth picking up if you can find it.

Pros: Nice scent. Just the right amount of menthol. Glycerin keeps dryness from being too bad.
Cons: Not available in the US. Alcohol tends to dry the skin somewhat.
I got a bottle of this in a PIF from B&B member inspiringK. It has a nice fresh "sporty" scent that is more modern than AVIB. While I enjoy AVIB, I admit it has a little bit of a "sleazy middle age guy" vibe to it thus making it a guilty pleasure. Original Sport does not have this problem. Even my wife (who is pretty particular about fragrance) likes the smell. I'd say it makes a good match for the Palmolive shave stick. It's not terribly sophisticated but quite pleasant.

This aftershave has the classic Aqua Velva blend of alcohol, menthol, and glycerine that leaves the skin feeling refreshed if the shave was a good one. If the shave was a bad one, it burns quite noticeably, but that's how all the alcohol based splashes work, which is fine by me. It doesn't moisturize like a balm, but the glycerine helps keep it from being totally drying. If you have dry skin like me, you'll want a balm or lotion after this to keep your skin hydrated.

If this was still available in the US and priced the same as other Aqua Velva products I would definitely buy it.

This stuff is very good for people who have either tough skin and/or oily skin. I don't have tough skin and tend to get at least some razor burn, so when I apply this it stings like a whip. However, my face and neck tend to be rather oily so the alcohol factor helps to reduce the greasiness.

You can get this product rather cheaply at any drug store or supermarket for $2.99CN or as much as $4.99CN, depending on the store.
