Baxter of California After Shave Balm

Best Aftershave for Dry Skin

Why people love it
  • You'll fall in love with the aroma of this aftershave
  • Cooling and revitalizing
  • Soothes irritation and prevents razor bumps

The allantoin in this aftershave formula treats the stinging burns left by razors - and other skin irritations. Meanwhile, aloe vera reduces inflammation. All in all, a brilliant combination.

For such a high price, you would expect better packaging. And, you will find parabens on the ingredient list. 


This brilliant aftershave is rich with ingredients that relieve sensitivity after shaving. It's both cooling and hydrating, without any alcohol in the mix. It's absolutely one of the best choices for guys with dry skin. It also works wonders on irritated faces. 

Think of this aftershave balm from Baxter of California as a moisturizer that forms part of your daily shaving routine. That's what it reminds us of - a super hydrating formula rather than cooling. But, it does a fair job of that too. 

What Type of Aftershave Is This? Balm

What’s Inside? You won't find any alcohol here, but you will find parabens. However, there are plenty of natural extracts that do the work you want them to. The menthol cools skin while tea tree oil is an antibacterial and natural moisturizer. It's a solid formula, though you may need to look elsewhere if you're concerned about parabens. The consistency is on the thin side, but you don't need a lot and it does absorb quickly. 

What’s It Smell Like? There's a sensational lemony, masculine scent to this aftershave balm. We know that's difficult to imagine, but it's good!

Will It Break the Bank? Probably not. It's a little less than $5 per fluid ounce, so it's middle of the road as far as aftershave products go. 

What’s the Bottom Line? We love, love, love this product for men with dry skin. Whether you live in a dry climate or you've had one too many late nights (not drinking water), this is an awesome fix. It's not expensive, but you should look elsewhere if you have naturally oily skin - or if you have a problem with parabens.
