What are some quality aftershaves for sensitive skin? I've just bought Proraso Sensitive Aftershave Balm (white) and I'm very pleased. Is it among the quality aftershaves and brands?

I prefer balms or alcohol free aftershaves personally, although I do have some with alcohol.

My favorites:
Barrister & Mann's Kyovu Line
Prospector Co.'s - KC Atwood and Peary & Hensons
Krampert's Finest Acadian Spice Bay Rum

Scented Balms:
Village Barber
Any scent you like from RazoRock, I have XX and love it.

i have sensitive skin as well, but i tend to use alcohol after shaves. there is a quick burn then all is well. i really do prefer almost anything that is/was used in a old fashioned barber shop. i like Clubman's, Master's Impulse, anything by Gabel's, and you simply must get a bottle of Osage Rub. that stuff is good for face and scalp. it is kinda heavy on the menthol, but i love it . and just plain old Witch Hazel. no scent really, but is good for your face.

Pre de Provence is nice. Seems healing and restorative to me.

I also like the Proraso balm you mention for the same properties.

Speick AS splash is another possibility.

The problem with these recommendations is everyone's different and what seems to work for me may cause your skin to react in another way.

I too have sensitive skin, but I interestingly enough, I haven't had skin issues with aftershave thus far. My aftershave issues usually center around the fragrance irritating my eyes.

At any rate, I liked Nivea balm when I used it. You might also look into Thayers witch hazels. I haven't used them, but there's no alcohol, and you can get various scents.

You need to determine what your skin is sensitive to. I have very fair skin. but I can wear lanolin rich woolens and prefer alcohol based scent. Put me into a polyester shirt
and I die.

My skin is fairly sensitive. I get along with Floid but 444 balm is the cat's meow. Smile

I have sensitive skin as well. I use Floid Blue Floid Vintage Vigoroso and Kramperts Finest Frostbite, love them all but the Kramperts is truly amazing..!! The ingredient list is natural, Brian uses essential oils and witch hazel in his AS and it really is a must try. I would happily pay double what he charges.. It's that good IMO

I had some DR Harris Windsor that had no alcohol in it and did not burn at all, but I've looked and cannot seem to find it now.
