or so says my dermatologist.

Can anyone recommend a nice, easily available balm? Mentholated would be nice too.

Thanks

I have really come to like the razorock aftershave waxes.

I have a tube of the Aveeno Active Naturals Mens After Shave Lotion. It might be a Drug Store balm but it is not bad. It is thick like a lotion and contains Shea Butter.

Aveeno makes good moisturizing products.

I currently use 4 balms I like.....
1. Musgo Real Balsamo
2. Spanish Fig & Nutmeg
3. Institut Karite & I Coloniali Emulsion with Rhubarb
Ranked in order of preferance with 3 a tie.

With online ordering I view everything as readily available. No experience with menthol so no help there.

Why do you need a balm? For what condition?

PM is OK if that works better for you.

The Real Shaving Co. Post shave soothing balm is an excellent choice.

Tried em all. This works best in winter. Looks 'shiny' at first but perfect a bit later.

Nivea sensitive or Aveeno post balm work very nicely.

I spent 30 years in the Navy/Coast Guard with time at sea/outdoor work every day. Time has just taken its toll, to much sun/wind/abuse. Getting a little leathery. Just need to remoisturize and try to heal some of the damage.

I haven't used it but then the unrefined Shea Butter is probably your best option. That's 30 years of abuse!
