eShave Aftershave SootherA couple of weeks ago, I was asked to review eShave's Aftershave Soother, picking the Orange Sandalwood scent as my chosen favourite, it was pretty safe to say, I couldn't wait for it to arrive. I had experimented a little in the past with aftershave soothers, but often reverted back to using aftershave balms shortly afterwards, so this one had some serious impressing to do.


After receiving a bit of advice from eShave, with regards to just how exactly to take full advantage of this grooming product, I couldn't wait to get started. They advised me to use this product immediately after shaving, before letting its silky smooth texture sink into my face for a few minutes. After that, using a good quality daily moisturiser to cap off my shave would apparently yield me the best results.


So gentlemen, a couple of days later, it arrived and my experience with this product is one that I feel obliged to share.


My First Impressions

My first impressions were fantastic! The box has a luxurious feel, as does the packaging inside and the bottle itself. It's nicely sized and weighty, meaning you get a fair amount of product for your money, which in this day in the grooming age, isn't always replicated from other brands. There was something about it that just screamed masculine and sitting proudly on my bathroom shelf, I’d say it is a million miles away from sticking out like a sore thumb.



After having a standard wet shave with a good quality shaving cream and fresh razor, I was ready to give this soother a go. Firstly, it's important to remember that right about now, my face is pretty much always hot, dehydrated and irritated, especially across the cheeks. After putting it on, I was in a world of comfort. It quite literally takes all the heat and tension out of my skin and the cooling sensation it provides is boarder lining orgasmic! Immediately taking the sting out my skin, I couldn't be happier and its soft and hydrating texture does my skin’s confidence the power of good.


Over the next few minutes

After a few minutes, my skin looks calmer and its all too often confidence crippling redness appears to die down - it's remarkable. All in all, it takes about 5-10 minutes for my skin to go back to its pre shaved state of calmness, which I am ecstatic about. No more shaving at night before bed, in the hope of waking up looking semi respectable and certainly no more desperately trying to pat my skin with cold water, in order to cool myself down after a shave.


Overall, I'd give this product a guaranteed 5 out of 5 and despite being a little pricey, it just lasts and lasts, making a real winner amongst my grooming and skincare routine.

A blockbuster product from eShave!
