So the other day in the interest of cleaning out one of my shave drawers my SOTD looked something like this.

I wasn't expecting too much because of the excellent artisan products I've been using, but it turned out to be an excellent shave. However when I applied the ASB I was blown away, it was hands down the best balm I've used to date.

Now I'm not ruling out the fact that it is unscented and perhaps unbeknownst to me my skin is sensitive to fragrance after shaving. However I'd like to know from you who use(d) this product if you feel the same way, or perhaps have come across something better in the way of aftershave balm. Thanks

Uncledoley, all the AOS aftershave balms are quality. I especially like the lavender; its fragrance is subdued and quite pleasant.

The only AOS aftershave balm I have tried is the one in your pictures (unscented) and I did find it to be very nice although I would never buy them.

LOL, this little box provided my travel SOTD products today too...perfect little unscented setup, and the quality is very good...especially the balm! Again very smart little sample packs I keep collecting over the years.

Thanks for the responses, and for the reassurance Obie. AOS doesn't get much love on here and perhaps rightly so. But maybe I'll pick up a bottle of the stuff now knowing it wasn't "just me".

Actually, the Ocean Kelp ASL is one of my favorites out there....light, refreshing, moisturizing and a great scent.

In the summer time I rarely use balms, but in the cooler months I enjoy using them. AOS balm is the best there is in my opinion.

You are very welcome. Yes, The Art of Shaving has good products. I especially like their shave creams.

Like yourself, i immediatley love the balm, bought a Sandalwood one, and now i want a ocean kelp to go along with the cream.

Hated the pre-shave, tough. Undecided

Couldn't agree more.
AoS gets little love around these parts but it is a fantastic line of products.
Their balms are my standard to which all other balms get compared.
Same goes for their shave creams. Fabulous performers.
