    Aftershave balms - Australia

    Aftershave balms are essential for soothing, moisturising, and protecting the skin after shaving. They have a creamy, gel-like consistency and are packed with emollient ingredients that differ from the traditional liquid aftershaves. Available in various forms and formulations, aftershave balms are a staple in any shaving routine.

    Why use an aftershave balm?

    Aftershave balms are perfect for those who want a lasting, protective layer on their skin post-shave. They are especially beneficial for individuals with dry or sensitive skin, as their hydrating and soothing properties effectively combat dryness and irritation. Unlike alcohol-based aftershave lotions, balms prioritise hydration and skin repair, making them a gentler option.

    Benefits of aftershave balm:

    • Moisturising: Aftershave balms are loaded with hydrating ingredients, which help to replenish and maintain the skin’s moisture barrier.
    • Soothing: These balms contain calming agents like aloe vera, chamomile, and vitamin E, which work to reduce redness and irritation.
    • Protection: They create a protective layer on the skin, guarding against environmental factors and further irritation.
    • Healing: Ingredients such as vitamin E and shea butter aid in repairing and healing the skin after shaving.

    How to use an aftershave balm

    Apply a small amount of balm to your hands and gently massage it into your face and neck. The thicker consistency of the balm makes it easy to spread evenly, ensuring full coverage and long-lasting protection.

    Key ingredients to look for:

    • Aloe Vera: Known for its soothing and healing properties.
    • Chamomile: Helps to reduce redness and calm the skin.
    • Shea Butter: Provides deep moisture and nourishment.
    • Vitamin E: Supports skin healing and offers antioxidant protection.
    • Glycerin: Attracts moisture to the skin, helping to maintain hydration.
