Through a recent sale via my insurance plan, I was able to get a number of "Organic" grooming products for free. Among the items I picked out was a Burt's Bees "Skincare for Men" travel kit. There were both shaving cream and aftershave included inside of the kit.
Does anyone have any experience with Burt's Bees products, especially their men's line? I've tried it but I'm curious to know others opinions.
As for my results.. The shaving cream is a little weird. It doesn't generate a lather at all. I believe there are other shaving creams that are similar, so some men must prefer them. Aside from the (for me) disconcerting lack of lather, the shaving cream worked well. The scent is a little strong, but not overpowering while shaving . The primary oils, according to the packaging, are Calendula, Chamomile, and Linden. Overall, I think the shave was a bit closer than my usual with Art of Shaving cream, but that may just have been due to my paying extra attention due to the lack of lather.
The aftershave was another mixed-bag for me. The scent is a bit stronger than I'd like, but pleasant. It did not irritate my usually sensitive skin. My problem? The aftershave liquid itself resembles.. shall I say, male discharge. It may be a bit childish of a reaction, but that was my first thought upon opening the tube.
As I asked before- anyone else have any experience with Burt's Bees?
