As you know, shaving can leave your skin feeling tight, dry, and sometimes irritated, so using a moisturiser or balm afterwards is vital. Aesop have created this lotion though, which is lighter than a cream, so it rubs in easily and doesn’t clog your pores.
I can tell you that a little goes a long way, this 60ml tube should last a fair amount of time, and I’m glad of that because this lotion is a very nice way to calm the skin down after stripping it of its natural oils goodness.
Packed with a blend of essential oils and Neroli blossom, it soothes the skin, and I personally use this prior to adding my daily moisturiser across the whole face. Plus, it has a very mild sandalwood fragrance, one of my favorites and a popular scent amongst my other shaving products.
The lotion is gentle though, so it’s ideal for all skin types, and not only after shaving. Use a small amount to rub in across the T-zone of your face following exfoliation and your skin will thank you for it.
If you’ve not tried any of Aesop’s skin care products, this may be a great place to start; after 30 years in the game they’re experts in the field, and this Post-Shave Lotion could tempt you, like us, into exploring what else they have to offer.
Available online for £35 for 60ml, or together with the Neroli Shaving Serum for £53 at www.aesop.com/uk
