Review of Musgo Real After Shave Balm
The final product we reviewed from Musgo Real was their After Shave Balm. In general the balm worked well after shaving - helping my skin recover from hot water and a sharp blade. I have no complaints there. However I wasn't thrilled with the scent. Musgo Real After Shave Balm is definitely designed for an older generation. I could imagine my grandfather wearing something like this, and I suppose it makes sense since this brand was resurrected based on a cologne which was popular in the '60s and '70s. Think distinguished gentleman emerging from a barber shop. It's not a bad smell. Just not for me.
The second issue I had was with the packaging. The flask-shaped glass bottle works will for Musgo Real's Pre Shave Oil, which pours out easily, but not as well with the balm, which is more viscous. I love the old-school design, but when you get more than half way through the bottle you're really going to want a squeezable plastic container.
Musgo Real After Shave Balm is $22 for a 3.33oz bottle.
