Nivea "Energy" Cooling ASB

Item Description

As part of my quest to have everything "menthol" I picked this up to give it a try. I haven't used the regular Nivea balm in over four years and I believe the recipe to have changed.

I found the Nivea mentholated balm to be lacking in the menthol department and somewhat burning on application. It does contain alcohol. The burn didn't last long, however, and it did a decent job of leaving the skin moisturized.

This is a far cry from being the best of the balms, but its cheap and effective enough to be kept in the rotation.

Latest reviews

I like this balm's light alcohol burn and moisturizing ability. With lesser products my face will be tight and dry but not so with this, even during winter. The scent is pretty generic, it's a combination of rubbing alcohol and light menthol. When I use this stuff I'll smell my shave soap for the remainder of the morning rather than this balm.

I use the entire line of Nivea aftershave products, and this is my least favorite. I'm not saying it's a bad products, but it's not great either. I think it smells funny, and the cooling effect isn't really there for me; I also get an alcohol burn, but it subsides after a few seconds. It does moisturize pretty well, and it doesn't feel heavy on my face, like some balms I previously used did. When all things are considered, it is worth at least a try. If you enjoy it, it is both readily available and cheap, which is good in my book.

Wow, I love other Nivea products but this one is awful. There is absolutly no cooling effect whatsoever. The smell is not nearly as good or refreshing as some of their other balms. And there is no alcohol burn at all which I happen to enjoy. I would not recomend this product.
