Ok - so D.R. Harris aftershave milk was loved by all... note the "was" - as of 3 months or so ago, D.R. Harris changed its formula to a much thicker, oilier version of their once beloved "light/refreshing" aftershaving milk. Who else to come to our wetshaving rescue - other than B&B and the mighty growl of bahh dum... baaahh dum... Mama Bear? Well - not only did we "rescue" ya from your aquisition disorder needing another quick fix stat, but we did it in style - as this new milk aftershave product not only smells and works better than the old beloved DR Harris product - but it costs 50% less as well! Alright - enough chit chat, lets get down to business....
Scent - The lavender/rose mix is superb, as you might have guessed, but it much softer, and less confusing as other lavender/rose mix products. This is not a "girly" smell in the slightest, it is a light, sophisticated scent, and within minutes fades away, so it will not interfere with your cologne choice for the day. Overall, for an aftershave - the scent is a perfect 10 for me, as it smells nice, and fades quick, as ANY good aftershave should - colognes are for lasting scent/smell - aftershaves are to soothe and tone.
Efficacy - I simply adore this product... It's near milk like consistency goes on fast and is easy to apply, it is all natural and virtually oil free, and it dries to a "talc" like finish. Once applied, it quickly goes to work soothing/toning the skin and immediatly instills a light moisture to the skin, really is a joy to use, and in fact works wonderful as a great "Pick me up" toner throughout the day! All I ask/want from an aftershave is for it to do its job of soothing/toning, add a light amount of moisture, then have all traces of it GONE.... this B&B Aftershave does exactly that! This is not just a one trick pony though - as eventhough it is called a summer/oily skin version - for most normal skinned fellas it will provide more than enough moisture for year round enjoyment!
I also quite enjoy the pump top, as it makes it even faster/easier/more enjoyable to use....
Overall - with it costing approx. 50% less expensive than the DR Harris milk, being virtually oil free, being made from a ton of natural/good for ya products, smelling great, and being quick/easy to use - this makes for one of my favorite aftershaves.... at any cost. Just watch as more B&B a/s milk users review the product... it is mighty, mighty good stuff.
