Review of Peter Thomas Roth Moisturizing Multi Tasking After Shave Balm

ptraftershave.jpegYesterday we shaved with Peter Thomas Roth 21st Century Shave Cream. Today we're finishing up with Peter Thomas Roth Moisturizing Multi Tasking After Shave Balm. Multi tasking? Why yes. This after shave is also good in the evenings, as a moisturizer after you've washed your face.

Skin-soothing after shave balm, formulated for normal to dry skin types. Helps discourage micro-inflammation as it delivers continuous hydration. Calming complex with allantoin and pro vitamin B5 helps prevent blotchiness and counteracts the discomfort associated with shaving and exposure to the elements. Refreshes and protects the skin, keeping it comfortable moisturized all day.

I liked Peter Thomas Roth's after shave quite a bit. Again, the scent is not the strong point here, but the after shave was mostly odorless. I enjoyed using it both in the morning and the evening, regardless of whether I shaved. Never needed to supplement with anything heavier, yet my skin never felt too oily after using it. I'd recommend this after shave to anyone.

Peter Thomas Roth Moisturizing Multi Tasking After Shave Balm is $24 for a 3.4 oz tube.

Review of Peter Thomas Roth 21st Century Shave Cream

ptr21st.jpegJust got back from the 21st century and boy are my arms tired! Thank you. I'll be here all week. Try the Fusion.

Take a minute to refresh your memory about Hungarian skin-care prodigy Peter Thomas Roth, then come on back for our review of his shaving cream.

Actually, Mr. Roth has two shaving creams - 21st Century Shave Cream and Modern Classic Shave Cream. We're reviewing the former, which oddly enough is currently not available on his website, but is available from Details for Men (who supplied us with it).

Cutting edge 21st century technology delivers this unique, rich, velvety shaving cream that is formulated with skin-smoothing moisturizers that form a silky, protective barrier allowing for a closer, more comfortable shave without irritation.

"Velvety" is a decent description of this shaving cream. Close to the consistency of home-made whipped cream. Appearing thick and white, yet still loose and spreadable. Goes on easily with fingers but not thickly so you still have a decent view of your skin underneath.

The scent of Peter Thomas Roth's 21st Century Shave Cream is not it's strong point. Not bad, but not that interesting. Kind of vaguely reminds me of Elmer's Glue mixed with a little sun screen. It's a flat smell, if that makes any sense.

Here's the thing. I've had the privilege to shave with some pretty amazing products over the last few years, so the bar has been raised pretty darn high. Peter Thomas Roth's 21st Century Shave Cream is a huge step up from drugstore brands, but it's not at the level of a Billy, Art, or some other Gentlemen we've tried. The shave is solid with little to no irritation. It's close but not super-close. This is one of those brands I'd recommend to someone who's beginning their quest for the ultimate shave. You'll see a huge improvement over all those "foaming gels" and the like.

Peter Thomas Roth 21st Century Shave Cream is $21 for a 7 oz tube.

This Just In - Peter Thomas Roth

peterThomasRoth.gif
Fresh off the heels of our review of The Art of Shaving products, our friends over at Details for Men have sent over the latest addition to their site - products from Peter Thomas Roth. Who is Mr. Roth, and why does his name sound familiar?
Skin care innovator Peter Thomas Roth is the first generation child of Hungarian parents. Skin care is an inherent part of Peter's heritage. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, Peter's father's family owned and operated two spa hotels in Hungary. [...] When skin care pioneer Peter launched his company in 1993, he improved on many of these old formulas keeping in mind the basic philosophy of the healing, and soothing, qualities of the many muds and minerals in the Thermal Springs and their important curative properties for specific medical conditions and remedies by blending 19th century recipes with 21st century skin care technologies and ingredients.

Um, run-on-sentence much?

Anyway, we're psyched to try out the futuristic Peter Thomas Roth 21st Century Shave Cream ($21) "with protective PTR space age polymer technology". Do we have another thing to thank NASA for? We also got a tube of Peter Thomas Roth Moisturizing Multi Tasking After Shave Balm ($24), which is "weightless" and "vanishing". Yup. I think we do. Thanks NASA!

Keep your antenna tuned to this frequency for when we start beaming our review. Oh, me so nerdie.
