Need to get some A/S balm suggestions for my wife after she shaves her legs. She tried out Cold River balm as I already own their stuff and she said she still felt to dry afterwards, any suggestions ?

Thank you

Nivea Aftershave Sensitive Balm or you could treat her to Geo F Trumper Skin Food. Soap Commander balm has the best moisturising properties in my eyes.

Organic Shea Butter. Got it for my wife and she now refuses to use anything else. A tub lasts a long time!

This is it! The lady uses it on her legs as well! I get mine off etsy. Half pound a pop and it lasts FOREVER. A little goes a long way....

I am not a balm user but received a sample from Soap Commander- it has shea butter in it and I like it so much I just ordered a full tube. It is not greasy in the least, fully absorbs in minutes and is really great for the skin post shave. Another alternative to consider...

Not to sound like a shameless plug, but I make a balm specifically for dryer skin.  It's based in apricot kernel and grapeseed oils.  Both of which are very moisturizing.  I have the same problem of still feeling dry after most balms. 

 ...and I'll bet a box of donuts she'd like the lime scent!   Biggrin

+1.  Soap Commander has probably the best balms available with Stirling a close second.  However, I don't like the menthol in the SC balms so I use the non-mentholated Integrity and mix it with Stirling Spice.  They both have an excellent healing ingredient list and compliment each other nicely.  I usually follow the balm with a Stirling Spice splash since they are non-drying for me and I get a little extra scent that way.

Shea butter is great, depending on the quality you get. It can smell sour or a bit rancid. Or both... =)

Nivea is great product. I keep it around all the time

My wife just recently started using coconut oil after she shaves. Her legs are the softest they've ever been.
