Looking for a good unscented aftershave balm, suitable for sensitive skin. Again I know there is no "best" but those of you who perform unscented or have sensitive skin and cannot use scented aftershave balms, what do you consider the best?

I'm interested in general in trying Soap Commander's line, and they have an unscented option (Integrity).

I've been looking at the Stirling Unscented balm.  Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but it looks like a great deal at 4oz for $7.

I like Cremo. Isn't sticky, seems to hydrate well.

I like soap commander integrity without menthol. I used raw shae butter for a while but it felt too heavy.

I bought and used a bottle. Agreed, it's a good product.
I haven't bought it again since, though -- I've been using other things, including a bottle of ZIRH Soothe that I got for just $4 at Marshall's some months back.
ZIRH Soothe also fits the unscented bill, but it's pricey at full retail.

if you can find good quality unrefined Shea butter and melt a little of that on your fingers, do that!
I tend to wash over it with bits of an aftershave. It does seal and pamper the skin better than many balms.
Another plus is, there is no conservating agents necessary. Anything fluid in balm form needs extra ingredients for that, if it is in watery solution.
I use Thayers witch hazel after rinsing and then Shea butter. http://shavenook.com/thread-unrefined-or...light=shea

Meißner Tremonia body butter or aftershave splash. If you're looking for an unscented product because you are allergic to fragrance ingredients, this is your safest bet. If you are simply looking for an allergen free product, I would try one of the Esbjerg aftershave milks or gels. Very lightly scented (citric), and the scent disappears within a couple of minutes. Extremely good aftershave skin care, though, and made to Austrian eco specs which are among the strictest in the world - no known intolerances. Same for their creams, by the way.

In addition to the above, I can add Crown Shaving Co. aftershave balm and Simpson's Skin food (both completely unscented)

I want to say Nivea has parfum in the ingredients, I may be wrong.

I use CeraVe lotion after every shave. It seems to calm skin irritation and moisturizes my face. I'm prone to having red blotches on my face (rosacea) and this lotion helps. It is unscented, no menthol, light, and does not feel greasy.

Highly recommended, especially for sensitive skin.

This is premature to say but I think SdM Aftershave Balm is going to be really nice. I believe its unscented. I will have some shortly and report back.

SdM, ABC Apricot Hull, and MdC Huille Vegetale are all great. They all have very faint fragrances which do not persist more than a couple of minutes. 

Cheers, Steve

My favourite mild scented and unscented balms are Clinique Post Shave Healer and Mühle Aloe Vera After Shave Balm.

Both work like magic on irritated skin
