Review of Mensgroom Soothe the Shaven Beast After Shave Balm
Day two of our tour of Mensgroom's facial products. Yesterday we shaved. Today we after-shave.
Mensgroom's Soothe the Shaven Beast is a light white lotion with a vaguely old-school barbershop scent. Just a hint of your grandpa's aftershave without his overwhelming halitosis. Three little squirts were all I needed to cover my face after each shave. One tip - pick the bottle up and squirt it into your hands. The spout really isn't long enough to dispense when it's sitting on the counter.
Contrary to what those annoying spandex-clad health freaks say, you don't need to feel the burn. At least not on your face. This after-shave will cool, soothe and stimulate you with a mixture of Birch Sap, Mannetake Mushroom and Menthol. And unlike most oil-tanker captains, it's alcohol free.
See? Shrooms again. Sweet!
Despite this after shave balm being very light, it was all my face needed. I've used several other after shaves which were so light I needed to apply something heavier, especially around my nose and lips where skin gets drier in the winter. Not so with Mensgroom. Another point for the shrooms.
Mensgroom's Soothe the Shaven Beast after shave balm is $30 for a 1.7 oz / 100 ml bottle. "We know it's hard to believe something can soothe and stimulate you with no alcohol. But trust us, it's true." Yup. Alcohol is for rubbin' and drinkin'.
