Dove Men + Care Intense Post-Shave Repair Balm is part of the company’s Expert Shave range of products.
It’s lightly scented and quickly absorbs into skin reported our chief tester, Big Vinny. He was glowing in his praise of the post-shave balm and also literally.
Post-shave repair balm
After spending half-an-hour in a hot bath, during office hours, prior to testing the product he was also sweating profusely for the remainder of the afternoon—prompting a rethink as to how things get done here at MannedUp. Showers only, is the solution that was devised, in case you’re wondering.
The balm comes in a neat, grey plastic pump. Our one negative criticism of this product is that the packaging makes it appear that you are getting more post-shave balm that you might assume on first glance. The tower-like dispenser holds just 50ml (1.6 fluid ounces).
Shooting pump action style
Push down on the broad, button-style pump on the top of the dispenser to collect a viscose line of the pleasantly scented balm. It’s a neat solution and a great way of limiting the amount that you use. The misgivings we have about the size of the packaging are balanced out by its functionality.
How many times have you stood there in the bathroom after a morning shave, bleary eyed and not quite with it, and poured too much aftershave balm from a bottle? Fortunately that does not happen with Dove Men + Care Intense Post-Shave Repair Balm.
The directions for application of this product, which is made in the USA, are simple: “Apply to face and neck after shaving.” Tell us straight. We like that here at MannedUp (£):
Feeling even smoother than usual
The packaging states that clinical trials of the balm’s “unique advanced moisturising technology” prove it rehydrates and repairs skin after shaving.
It did make or faces feel smooth after using it and put a stop to post-shave itchiness and irritation.
Twisting the cap a few millimetres to the left locks it into place, making Dove Men + Care Intense Post-Shave Repair Balm a neat product to travel with. Due to the fact the cylinder holds just 50ml this is a post-shave balm that you can take in your hand-luggage when flying on many airlines.
