Truefitt & Hill West Indian Limes After Shave Balm

Item Description

Truefitt and Hill lists their Indian Limes as containing a" top note of Citrus, Litsea Cubeba, Lemon, Orange and Lime enveloping its floral heart of Orange Blossom, Lilac and Rose and resting on a bed of Oakmoss"

This is certainly one of my favorite fragrances so far. It's just an exceptionally fresh and high-class fragrance to me.

I would characterize the after shave as being moderately moisturizing and as having little to no burn sensation.

Unfortunately, this is also an exceptionally short-lived fragrance. I find the scent usually disappears within 15-20 minutes or so. My search continues for a lime fragrance that will be more lasting yet smell as good!

Pros: Smell, luxurious feeling
Cons: Stings
This balm (and I have one more from the series) is a disappointment. Stings beyond alcohol and irritates my skin.

While it is a decent balm in terms of moisturizing the scent is pretty bad. Very artificial and not at all pleasing.

In addition, quite a bit of stinging when I applied it. Also, feels too greasy even though I just used a very,very small amount.

For whatever reason these guys have not at all nailed the lime scent in this product or the shaving cream - which IMHO has an even worse scent. Odd.....

Glad I didn't buy this. I had a sample which lasted 3 days. To be honest, happy it's gone.

I like this product a lot; it is not my favorite T&H but its still very good. As to the comments about the scent being short lived: What can you expect? This is an ASB after all; its purpose is NOT to provide fragrance but to help your skin recover from shaving which IMO it does well. It gives my face a soft matte feel that lasts for 5-6 hours. However, although the lime scent disappears quickly (that is to be expected of a citrus), I smell the clove and orange flower base for several hours; it is vey nice.
