Brut moisturizing A/S Balm

Item Description

So, I had an irritating close shave this morning (bad prep, lack of sleep, rush, etc...)...which is a good thing to test an A/S : how good is it at soothing??

So, I tried the Brut Balm

Soothing : this stuff really soothes!!!! it's slightly refreshing (not like a mentholated product, more in a soothing way) ; I was afraid this would irritate me after my bad shave, especially when you consider the Brut fragrance, but to my surprise, it didn't

Absorption and moisturizing properties : well, when you first put this product, it feels a bit sticky when u touch your face (only whan u touch your face), but after 2 minutes. it's completely absorbed, and left my face matte...slightly dry, but that's because my skin type is dry

Price : same range as Nivea

This balm is well formulated ; it's alcohol-free, has good ingredients (aloe, shea butter, vitamins A C E, eucalyptus, peppermint, glycerin), it's not greasy and has a nice scent (unless u hate the Brut scent)

Just when I thought I had all the inexpensive balms I wanted, I finally picked up the Brut because of what I read here. All I can add to what is said, is how surprised I was at how much I like it. Love the scent, love the soothing effect of the shea butter, love the non-greasy feeling it leaves on my face. Have gotten compliments on the scent as well. Goes well with Irisch Moos.

I have to agree with most everyone else. I just purchased this stuff, and it is incredible. It is VERY soothing for the price. Many don't like the Brut scent, but the scent is somewhat faint, which is nice. It is nowhere near as strong as the traditional Brut splash-on. The misses likes it too. It is highly recommended.
Although newer to shaving with a double edge blade, I have used a few different aftershave products. I received this as a gift a few years ago from a friend of mine because she liked the smell of Brut. It came with a bottle of spray cologne which I actually used quite a bit. Anyways, I never really got around to using this stuff because I already had some Nivea Aftershave balm. Fast forward to recently. Being new, I still am trying to find what works and what doesn't. I had been using some Nivea balm, but had a particularly bad couple of shaves the past few days so I figured I would give this stuff a shot.

This stuff was great. It definitely did a great job fighting the mass amounts of razor burn I got and cooled my face off in a very smooth way. It went on sticky, but once it dried (which it does quickly) my face felt darn smooth. The smell isn't overpowering, but it is noticeable . I think it could do a better job of moisturizing as it feels dry on the face. Overall, I loved this stuff for it's ability to fight off the razor burn and leave my face cool and smooth.

I highly recommend it to anyone who has suffered razor burn during a shave.
