All Pacific Shaving Co. images Courtesy: Amazon An aftershave has a few important jobs it must do, and do well:1) Soothe Irritation,2) form a protective barrier,and 3) smell good. It also helps if it is affordable. Lets look at each criterion individually. 1) Soothes Irritation? This mild aftershave contains multiple ingredients that soothe and reduce skin irritation and swelling including alcohol, tea tree extract, spearmint oil, and – of course – caffeine. This aftershave is also packed with other nourishing ingredients such as jojoba oil, shea butter, and others. Though a good shave should be relatively irritation free, this product does a great job in soothing whatever irritation does occur. The caffeine and spearmint oil invigorate and cool your skin, further enhancing post-shave comfort. You Tube video: Caffeinated Shaving Cream! – Mark Szorady 2) Forms a Protective Barrier? This lotion moisturizes without being too heavy or greasy. As mentioned above it contains many beneficial oils and moisturizers. The product absorbs readily and forms a moisture barrier, leaving your skin soft and supple. Since I began using this lotion on my dry, oily skin there has been a noticeable reduction in both acne and oiliness. If you have issues with acne well into your 30s, like I do, I would give daily moisturizing with a quality product like this a try. It may be your oily skin is your body’s reaction to over stripping oils through daily washing. 3) Smells Good? Since we all, presumably, wear cologne it is best when our aftershave is not so overpowering that it occludes the bouquet of our favorite scent. Pacific’s aftershave has a mild, minty smell that is both pleasing and relaxing. The scent compliments most cologne very nicely and remains for at least a few hours. It should be noted that you will probably not notice the smell yourself a few minutes after application and only someone with their nose but a few inches from your face will be able to smell it. If there is one criticism I could make of this product: its neutral smell that blends well with just about any cologne is just a tad under scented. 4) Price: Pacific Shaving’s Caffeinated Aftershave is inexpensive (about $5 for 3 oz./89ml) and can be purchased in person at most Target stores and similar establishments. You can also find it here. Summary: Pacific Shaving Co. managed to pack a lot of value into this product. Top-notch ingredients soothe and nourish your skin and keep it hydrated all day. Its pleasant, though slightly understated, scent is a winner paired with your favorite manly scent. The wide availability and low price minimizes the monetary investment and effort required acquire this must-have aftershave. Its convenient packaging also makes it an excellent edition to your traveling shave kit. Give it a try today; you’ll be happy you did!
