Edwin Jagger Aloe Vera Aftershave Lotion

Item Description

I originally got this as a sample, and my wife loved it so much, she convinced me to buy it. First of all, I'm not sure it's supposed to be an aftershave or a skin care product, but since its description is "aftershave lotion" I put it under the aftershave review heading.

The price is very attractive -I got a 100ml for about $25 including shipping (The English Shaving Company had a special offer). However, what good is an attractive price without an attractive product? First, the smell is just a lovely clean smell, and the lotion has excellent moisterizing properties. The smell is not overpowering, but seems to have good legs to last.

Criticism? Perhaps just a tad greasy (use sparingly), though that's being very picky, and little to no cooling effect -though that's something I can personally live without.

Pros: Moisturizes well without irritation
Cons: The scent is nothing like the EJ aloe shave cream
I have been looking for an ASB with a nice scent which works well on sensitive skin. After a few unimpressive tries with other products, I figured I should be smart and stick with a brand I have been happy with and with a scent that I already like. I use the EJ aloe shave cream daily and love it. Well, to my surprise, the ASB does not smell anything like the shave cream. It smells very artificial, almost like plastic.
I works well enough as an ASB, it's soothing, a good moisturizer, and does not irritate sensitive skin. However, for me, the scent is unpleasant. If I found the scent tolerable, I would have given it much higher score and continue to use it.

Pros: Soothing, no irritation
Cons: None
I have been using the Aloe Vera and the Sandalwood versions for two years now.

When I started off with DE shaving, I used to get horrendous razor burn. I would try to use an Alum Block and scream in agony as the pain seared through me. Then I found this stuff. Bought it on a whim. Right from the start, it always soothed my skin. It calmed the burn. It wasn't cooling but it stopped the itching I got afterwards. It kept my face moisturised for the rest of the day.

It's expensive but the first bottle lasted me around 18 months and that's shaving 3x a week, every week. It spreads easily across the face so I only need to press the nozzle 1-1.5 times to cover my face. As my shaving technique has improved, I don't suffer from razor burn or any nicks/cuts. Despite that, I still use it.

Downside is maybe scent. The sandalwood smell is smoky. I don't think anyone can replicate sandalwood properly. I have chess pieces made out of sandalwood so I know what it smells like. The aloe vera one is fine as well. Again, the fragrance is very subtle.

I don't need to look anywhere else for an aftershave lotion.

Pros: Works well on razor burn and heals blemishes; natural composition;
Cons: Initial strong artificial smell; not so readily available in Australia; slightly greasy
I found this ASB to be very effective in fighting razor burn. It's very comfortable to wear, and the one pump of the bottle seems like the perfect amount. It's a little greasy, but once it dries my skin feels very smooth and soft. The smell is quite artificial and is probably the 0.01% of the product that is artificially derived. Fortunately it dissipates within 30~60 minutes. It beats out my old favourite, Jack Black's post shave cooling gel, although I really enjoyed the light natural scent of the Jack Black's product, and of course it costs a lot less than Edwin Jagger.
