Taylor of Old Bond Street Herbal Luxury Aftershave Cream

Item Description

I'm glad TOBS Luxury Herbal Aftershave Cream for Gentlemen was my first good aftershave, because it served as a great example of what I should expect from an aftershave product. I haven't tried many others, but so far this one is easily my favorite.

Luxury Herbal is a thin cream that applies easily to the face, which is important when you don't want to apply pressure to your sensitive post-shave skin. The honey, wheatgerm, and avocado oils sooth and moisturize the face and promote healing. The subtle and refreshing scent doesn't seem to be from a fragrance, but simply the result of the natural ingredients; it fades in a few minutes. There isn't a distinct cooling sensation, but, again, it is very soothing. It's obvious that a lot of thought went into what a good aftershave should be when TOBS formulated this.

The only reservation some might have about Luxury Herbal is the US$28 price tag. But considering that it's a top-shelf product by a respected maker, it's not unreasonable. If you don't mind paying the price, I highly recommend it.

Pros: smooth, creamy, works great to moisturize, feeling lasts
Cons: price, essentially unscented
In London at the shop this sells for 11.95 pounds, or about US $20. It is minimally scented and has no real cooling effect, but goes on easily and a little goes a while. It is small tube- 2.5 ounces, 75 ml. I think it would do a fine job on razor burn, but I don't get it, so I can't say for sure. I have been using it the past week while in London and this is a fine minimally scented after shave balm that is pricey, but truly nice to use.
