So, I may have found the best moisturizer. I tried Vichy, and thought it was terrific. Tried a few others—ones in hotel rooms, my wife’s, samples—but I think I’ve found it.

I use it after every shave. Biotherm Aquapower. I also often use their No. 3 Total Recharge at night.

I sometimes still use aftershave, but not often. And, I add a dab (or 5) of cologne on weekends. Ya, I do miss a bit of burn from the AF, and I might go back to that in the warm weather.

Bike riding and walking are on my agenda for the summer, so I might need to find a moisturizer with some sunscreen in it.

But, I just can’t imagine life without moisturizer. It’s a shame in took me all these decades to discover it (thanks to Claus).

How many of us use moisturizer?

I think Lucky Tiger aftershave has great moisturizing properties. I also just use the basic face lotion from Trader Joe's. It does wonders!

I don't know what the best is but I think Razorock Aftershave Wax(s) deserve a mention here.

I'm with Celestino here.  Unrefined Shea butter has made all my balms obsolete.

My favorite is my wife's cocoa butter, but I am biased:

I love unrefined shea butter, but I'm afraid it's a bit greasy to use in the morning after my shave.  


But, it's pretty close to a miracle product, I admit.  Use it at night quite a bit, and on my knees and elbows when they get dry.

I understand, David, and it is great that you are still enjoying its benefits.  Thumbsup

Wow, David, that looks drastically different from the Nilotica (eastern African) unrefined shea butter we keep around our home. (I would show you a photo of ours, but the jar is in the company of my bride on the other side of the Pacific Ocean today.)  In words, Nilotica shea butter has the consistency of creamy peanut butter on a warm day, so the surface is smooth except for the smooth ruts where fingertips have dug into it.

But is Nilotica greasy as well? This is the most common complaint I've read about the unrefined shea butter, with supporters saying that they eventually got used to it.

Homemade...all natural...all organic.   As for greasiness...don't use too much...gently massage and wait a few minutes and you won't notice.

Excellent question, Mike.  

I think (it is an opinion, feel free to disagree) that “greasy” is a subjective, not an objective, adjective.  

Personally, I have found that Nilotica shea butter takes a lot of rubbing in before it “disappears,” or is completely absorbed into the skin.

Once Nilotica shea butter has been worked into the skin — “disappeared” — it no longer is “greasy,” as I should use that term subjectively.  

(I do not know whether that answers your question.)

Hmmn...that does give me the info I was looking for. Likely a quick application (akin to how I use balms) would leave me feeling slippery, while a more measure application would yield better results. thanks!
