Aubrey Men's Stock After Shave Balm Spice Island Bay Rum -- 4 fl oz
Found this on my quest to replace some of my personal care items with less toxic products.
On the plus side, this after shave works well. Soothes my face after a shave and leaves my skin feeling good.
I wasn't sure I loved the scent at first, partially because it smells quite different than the face scrub from this same line of products. The scent is rather strong but I have grown fond of it. It is quite masculine but pleasing (does not smell like Pine Sol like some masculine products tend to do). Thankfully, it does not last after you put it on. I don't wear cologne because it makes me sneeze a lot and I've had that issue with some other after shaves that smell like cologne - so I am glad this product does not have that issue.
For negatives, the balm consistency is a bit weird because it is a bit "sticky" and you have to rub it in quickly to get the best results. I find doing 3 or 4 quick pumps into my hand then quickly applying works best for avoiding that sticky feeling.
I know others have had issues with the pump, but mine has been ok so far with the method listed above.
All in all, a decent product but could be improved a bit.
All in all, it does the job

I switched to this product 3 years ago when I was trying to cut back on the amount of chemicals my body was being doused in on a daily basis. I've had great results ever since. My wife loves the smell, though I must admit, I only use 4-5 pumps at a time. I suppose if you were to use as much as a normal after shave the smell might be overpowering, but I've never had that issue. This bottle lasts me 3-4 months, so I'm very pleased with it!

Waaaaaay too smelly. Got this for my husband to help get rid of the little bumps he gets on the top of his head after he shaves. Didn't get rid of bumps and the fragrance was too much for him - and me.

the scents especially mild and the toning action is perfect. it has some oatmeal to thicken it up into more of a gel and soften the skin. i went through a bottle in two weeks.
