After shave that’s good for your skin
I’ve been a big fan of aftershave for a while now. Aftershave plays a pretty big role in providing comfort for your skin right after your finished shaving but also in long term aspect as well. First and foremost aftershave is primarily used to rehydrate your skin and relieve any discomfort caused by shaving. No matter what razor and shaving cream or soap you use there most likely will be some kind of irritation caused from shaving. Shaving causes trauma to the skin no matter how expensive the tools are that you are using. Any time you run a razor across your skin it will cause irritation. How much and how long will it last is another story. There are steps that you can take to lessen the severity and longevity of irritation caused by shaving. Investing in a good pre and post prep shaving routine is one way of dealing with constant skin irritation that has a lot of good short and long term effects with many skin care benefits. Using pre-shave oil or soap provides an extra layer of protection by aiding your razor in gliding across your skin with minimal pressure needed. The post prep routine is just as important as your pre shave routine is since the post prep routine can pertain to products such as an aftershave splash or balm and moisturizer. Using an aftershave splash/balm or both helps to increase moisturization increasing suppleness and comfort, decrease inflammation and irritation while toning and tightening the skin helping to fight the signs of aging. Aftershave and moisturizer are a lot alike. I use both for extra moisturization as well as increasing the smoothness of my skin. Moisturizer adds that extra glow to your skin.
Thavma is a company I found on social media that specializes in providing authentic shaving products. The shaving brushes and razors are handcrafted with materials of the highest quality adding longevity and quality to your shaving routine. The creams, soaps and lotions are made with natural ingredients that are good for your skin and feel good on your skin as well. I had the chance to try their fragrance free and peppermint+menthol aftershave balm, both came in round 3.4 ounce/100 ML bottles with a pump style lids. Since the aftershave is made with natural ingredients the bottles are darkened to stop the sunlight from breaking down the natural ingredients use to make the aftershave inside of the bottle. The darkened bottles increase the longevity of the aftershave ensuring the quality of product. I decided to try the fragrance free aftershave first. After my nightly shave was done I applied a non alcohol based aftershave splash first and waited a few minutes to let it soak into my skin. I then pumped 5-6 squirts of the fragrance free aftershave balm into the palm of my hand. The consistency was a medium thickness meaning a little runny but thick as well. I massaged the aftershave into the skin of my dome and face. The aftershave soaked in quickly with no greasy after feel. My skin had a nice glow and felt soft and smooth.
The next night I used the Peppermint+Menthol aftershave balm and had the same experience as the fragrance free balm. The consistency was the same as well as the non greasy after feel. My skin was just as soft and smooth after using the Peppermint+Menthol balm as it was after using the fragrance free balm. The only difference was the Peppermint+Menthol created a cool and calming feeling on my skin that lasted throughout the night. It was very warm in my house the night I used the Peppermint+Menthol balm so the cooling sensation it created was welcoming and appreciated. Peppermint and Menthol both have skin care benefits that can help control acne, Excellent toner for your skin, Can help hydrate dry scalp, They have Anti-microbrial properties, soothes itchy and dry skin, Can help sooth itchiness from poison ivy, Natural bug repellent, Topical Analgesic, Can help relieve nasal and chest congestion and act as cooling agents. Peppermint and Menthol have many benefits but you should always error on the side of caution and rub a dime size amount of this balm on your arm before applying it to your head or face to see what kind of reaction you will get. If you don’t get an allergic reaction by the next day you should be fine to use it. The Peppermint and Menthol oil tends to have a strong aroma and can make your eyes water and your nose run so be careful when applying it to your face.
The Fragrance Free and Peppermint+Menthol Aftershave balm also contain some other natural ingredients such as grapeseed oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe Leaf Juice and Glycerin. These ingredients also have a number of skin care benefits that help keep your skin soft and healthy helping to decreasing the amount of irritation caused from shaving. If you haven’t tried the aftershave balm from Thavmacompany.Com yet I suggest you do so. What’s not to like about products made with natural ingredients that are good for your skin and shaving routine. I’m sure you’re gonna love them.
