If you like Haslinger, and you’re looking for Sandalwood, you should try the Haslinger Sandalwood AS Balm. Maggard’s has it for $12.50. I enjoy mine.Yes, it appears that way.
Here's the plan.
2020 will be a year with Haslingers shaving soaps and I'm going to explore balms.
Captains Choice, Proraso, Stirling, and Speick have been on the radar or a while.
Truefett & Hill, L' Occitane Cade, and DR. Harris Arlington are new additions to an expanding list of choices. I will have to find a nice Sandalwood scented balm for my wife. She loves sandalwood.
I'm working down my soap inventory and am in the ring of death with Venture, Schaffmilch, and Bay Rum soaps.
I will use Cella and Speick until year end and then start the Year With Haslingers.
The forecast for 2020 is a balmy year with smooth shaving ahead.
I have been happily using Nivea balms after I shave.
Yes! Avoid this.
"Mr. Schnitzel52 ..."
"Nivea balm zero point two ... fat, drunk, and sticky-faced is no way to go through life, son."
Do what I did and find yourself a good sunscreen facial lotion, and get double-duty, soothing balm and solar protection.
I’ve read good things about Nancy Boy.Nancy Boy balm is good (the best if you really tear yourself up)
Duke Cannon balm is good (the best if you like menthol and want a longer lasting scent)
Dr Carvers balm is good (no better than the Williams)
Williams 5 in 1 balm is good (no better than the Dr. Carvers)
Bevel balm is good (the scent is the one I like best and it's a little better than the Williams or the Dr. Carvers, maybe not quite as good as the Nancy Boy. My only strike against the Nancy Boy is it is mostly aloe so will leave you with the sticky face feel, whereas the others dry down more.)
They all work well.
