I'm in the "both" column.

Splash with alcohol in it (usually) for antiseptic properties, and that glorious burn (hotter the better)...

...and balm to return moisture and soothe (or, put the fire out, depending on how you look at it...)

Witch hazel before either.

Great results so far.

Usually I like to use both. A good alcohol splash like Stirlings, then a good balm again like Stirling or unrefined Shea Butter, they really do a great job. I also tried Thayers Witch Hazel toner and I find it also to be a great product !


Happy Shaving !

I prefer splashes. Love the cool hit it provides. I find balms too greasy feeling. Although i dont like the feeling of creams in general (even hand creams)
