There are lots of shaving products that manufacturers claim are good for those men who suffer with sensitive skin.
Frankly, I take much of their claims with a large pinch of salt; some of the more expensive ones we have tested fared no better than cheaper brands. Some seemed to make skin problems like razor burn worse, not better. So, which brands can you trust? There are a few that score very highly, Castle Forbes Lavender Shaving Cream and matching Aftershave Balm are very good indeed, we have been recommending these two products for many years. If you have tried them and you need a change, consider Baume from Belgium.
Baume.be has a good story behind it, Karl the owner of the brand suffers from sensitive skin, after finding out that the product he got on best with was no longer available he went about making his own cream and balm and so the Baume brand was born. Baume shaving cream benefits from a lovely floral, musky, woody scent. The cream lathers up into a protective lather that moisturises while you shave leaving your skin free from razor burn and bumps. The balm soothes and moisturises shaved skin with no shiny, greasy residue. Feedback from users of Baum.be shaving cream and balm has exceeded expectations.
Our own Executive Shaving Natural Shaving Cream and Intensive Moisturising Balm are wonderfully protective, great value for money and men with sensitive skin really should try them out. Buy both together and save 15%. These products are as natural as they can be, they are paraben and alcohol-free and no artificial colourants are used. If you are less than 100% happy with these products you get your money back.
