    "Boots Freshwood balm and aftershave"
    Pros - Classic and terrific value
    Cons - None
    I have both the balm and aftershave and they are available in most of the boots stores in Thailand for 195 Thai baht which is about £2 in the U.K. I use both regularly as they are part of my ever increasing collection, they have been sold by Boots the chemist for decades and are classics I love them, highly recommend any of the two bottles.

    "I picked up a bottle of this while I was in London"
    Pros - Nicely scented aftershave
    Cons - Just a tad too thick
    I picked up a bottle of this while I was in London and liked it so much I bought another while I was still in town.
    I don't remember how much I paid for it, but it wasn't at all expensive (especially as Boots had a buy two get one free going at the time).
    It is nicely scented, though not overpowering and moisturizes very well. The only complaint I had (complaint being too strong a word) is that it felt a tad too thick. I cut it with a little witch hazel and it has just the right viscosity for me. If you're in the UK, check it out.

    "I found this balm a few weeks ago when visiting my"
    I found this balm a few weeks ago when visiting my local Boots for some nappies and baby milk for our newborn. TBH I had never noticed it before, but they have stocked it for a good number of years.

    Price: At £2.40 for a 125ml bottle this stuff is as cheap as chips. But just because it has a low price does not mean it is low quality.

    Quality: As with all Boots branded products the quality is excellent. I would not hesitate in recommending this product to anyone. Even the bottle it comes in has a good quality feel to it.

    Fights Razor Burn: Does it ever!! I have really sensitive skin and if I get things wrong I can suffer badly from razor burn. This stuff eliminates it, totally. Since I have started to use this product razor burn has become a thing of the past for me.

    Cooling Sensation: This stuff cools your face fantastically, the feeling it leaves you with can only be described as totally sublime.

    Scent: The scent is great, I love it. As the name suggests it has a slightly woody aroma to it. It isn't too overpowering and seems to compliment any other scent you may choose to use. Boots also stock a traditional aftershave splash with an identical aroma so you might want to try that inconjunction with this.

    Efficacy: It does exactly what it claims to do. Nothing more, nothing less. You only need a very small amount to get the desired result from this stuff, literally just a tiny amount on the finger tips of each hand and then massage it in to your face.

    Moisturising: This moisturises my face perfectly. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and supple. Although if you use too much it can leave a feeling of greasiness, so the golden rule is less is more.

    Alcohol Burn: I have experienced no alcohol burn with this whatsoever.

    To sum up this really is a great product that really does deserve the 100% score that I have given it. But with all these things YMMV.
