Anyone know of a good Lavender after shave balm? I have the art of shaving one but would like to try others. Suggestions?

I have a counter recommendation, just in case: RR King of the Castle. Scent is fine, works OK but gives me skin reactions. Then again, all RR products do.

RazoRock King Louie Aftershave Wax. Fantastic stuff.

And I do certainly echo the love of Castle Forbes.

If you are in the US, right now Castle Forbes is your safest bet. Purest lavender scent, and great performance. That said, Meißner Tremonia's new aftershave balms should hit your shores shortly. They are better in performance, but their interpretation of lavender is less spicy, and more floral. I would get a sample first.

Castle Forbes is the best I've found.  Here's a snap of it.  Their shaving cream is a top performer as well.

I just got some samples of Meissner Tremonia.  Performance is very good indeed, and the scent on several is also terrific...but, the Lavender....ummmm, well...too floral for me.

Gilbert Henry makes a fantastic, natural smelling lavender balm...absorbs/soothes quickly and isn't greasy. Love the stuff, good luck!

The Castle Forbes is (thus far) my favorite lavender aftershave. The fact that is uses essential oils makes a big difference in calming my skin. It's pricey but the improvement it makes in my complexion ensures its value to me.
