In the first days of my wet shaving on April 6 or so, I asked around for an aftershave that didn't contain alcohol, as I had memories from my teens of the burn.
Turns out, I got some of this stuff and while alcohol is the first ingredient (I'm fairly certain...) it's tolerable.
I evolved to buying mostly balms, PdP No. 63, the Lather & Wood duo of Bay Rum and Sandalwood, and my last purchase/freebie thrown in by Jarrod of The Superior Shave, some Manufacktur Zartgefuehl. I find that the balms are just the thing for after a good shave, and make my skin feel like a million bucks.
Does anyone feel the opposite? Does anyone have balms that were inexpensive, but you find you don't use them any more? (the Proraso was $10 or so) and I no longer reach for it. FWIW, my bottle has probably a scant bit more in it, than does the one pictured. I'd call it full.
I've created a Trade thread in the BST forum for those who might be interested.
