Review of L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm
Yesterday we shaved with L'Occitane Cade Shaving Cream, today we're sealing the deal with L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm.
Continuing the hyperbole from yesterday, here's how L'Occitane describes their Cade After Shave Balm:
Redefines after-shave comfort. Extraordinary blend of Shea Butter and birchwood sap extract helps resist redness, razor burn and feelings of tightness. Our signature Cade complex of juniper, sandalwood, Immortelle and rosemary essential oils purify skin to clean and soothe nicks and breakouts. Light and fluid texture quickly absorbs without a trace of tackiness.
Birchwood sap extract? Immortelle? (The latter is a flower. Had to look it up.)
So I'm sure some people really like this stuff, but it kind of stung, particularly above my lips where my skin is a little raw from blowing my nose. I'm a sensitive man. Lords knows if there's a pea under my mattress I'll wake up all black and blue. But this stuff wasn't my favorite. As an after shave balm it works great. Just wish I didn't have a reaction to it. Your mileage may vary. If you see a tester at a store, try some out. Maybe it's for you.
L'Occitane Cade After Shave Balm is $28 for a 2.5oz / 75 ml tube.
