L’Oréal Men Expert Post-Shave Balm

This post-shave balm is part of the L’Oréal Men Expert range of male grooming products.

Non-greasy and easily absorbed, it features the L’Oréal Men range’s 24-hour hydrating formula and is designed to soothe razor burn.

It’s not just a balm for applying to the area that you shave, you can use it as an all day moisturiser over your entire face.

A smooth start to the day? A dollop of post-shave balm.

I like the smell of shave balm in the morning

The white balm is lightly scented.

Passing the post-shave balm around the office, during a group discussion about its characteristics, there were a lot of oohs and aahs, plus the occasional grunt. To be honest, grunting is far more common than you might expect here at MannedUp (£):

Collectively we agreed that there’s a hint of peppermint in the scent plus a delicate undertone of shea butter. All told the product has a light, pleasant and ‘clean’ smell.

You can, if you want, add a spray of eau de cologne and the two scents will not clash.

It's all in hand.

Applying it after a wet shave

We dabbed it on after shaving and found it did indeed sooth the itching sensation of irritation that was the result of using a razor blades that should have been disposed of the best part of a fortnight ago.

Checking the packaging, we read that the balm is “enriched with ceramides.” Heading over to Wikipedia, we learnt that ceramides are “a family of waxy lipid molecules”.

What do they do? According to the packaging ceramides bring “long-lasting hydration”.

Rubbing it in did indeed the leave the faces of the MannedUp team looking smooth.

A silver fox? How the packaging appears in the shops.

What about the packaging?

The 100ml of post-shave balm comes in a metallic grey coloured plastic bottle. The cap fits well and isn’t prone to opening while it’s being juggled in a wash bag—one of our special tests here at MannedUp.

The bottle is robust and light to carry, so ideal for a wash bag when you’re travelling. We decided this is what we like most about the product.

 

With the summer holiday season underway this moisturising, post-shave balm means you don’t need to carry both an aftershave and a moisturiser, so may well prove popular among travellers who like to pack light.

If you want to find more information about the product, take a look at the L’Oréal Men Expert website.

If only we could all have a little lie down after shaving.
