I've been meaning to ask folk about this for a while but those of you who have the lemon variant or any other for that matter , do you smell a detergent type smell and find it is quite bubbly as well? It is also the only scent that has nipped my skin post shave. Just wondered if anyone else had a similar experience?

I keep wanting to pick some Thayer's up but I haven't yet. What do you mean by nipped your skin?

Normally Thayers does not feel of anything when I use it post shave but the lemon seems to give a sting or nips my skin like an alcohol splash.

The Thayers lemon does have some alcohol. Some other varieties don't. I prefer the alcohol free with aloe.

Yes , you bought the astringent. I just bought the lavender version tonight locally. Does not even come close to smelling like lavender so that part is dissapointing. Its a bit bubbly if shaken, not stirred lol pun intended. No nip here, of course I didn't try it post shave

Thanks , I've since realised that it is the astringent branded one and has alcohol in it. All my others have the "alcohol free toner" banner at the top of the label, that will be the burny face feel then Biggrin

The alcohol content should be pretty minimal. I don't get much sting with the Thayers lemon, does it give you as much sting as a standard alcohol-based splash?

No , nowhere near as much as a straight alcohol splash.
