Typically when I pick a post shave product, I will gravitate to the after shave splash.  Maybe it is what I know, my Dad always splashed on aftershave.  Maybe it is that I find the scents last a bit longer.  Or perhaps I don’t notice the extra hydrating that a balm is supposed to offer.  I still will use an aftershave balm on occasion but I almost always pair it with the matching splash as well.

This product changed all that for me.  I was sent this sample (complimentary, as well as a pre-shave to try) from Like Grandpa shave products.  This was different than any after shave balms I’ve used thus far.  It comes in a tin and I would describe it more as a salve.  You take a small amount, work it between your hands and apply to your face.  It goes on with a bit of a waxy feel to it.  You let it soak in for a bit and then wipe off the excess.  Typically I’m not a Sandalwood fan but I love the subtle scent that this carries with it.  And hydrating wise, it’s awesome.  It feels fantastic and it makes a world of difference.

If I had to give it a knock, I’d say the price point is a bit on the high side compared to other aftershave products in similar quantities.   He also only carries 2 scents, so if Tea Tree or Sandalwood don’t do it for you, you are out of luck.  Both are small prices to pay for a really good product.  I highly recommend checking it.  It is something different, and could very well be what you are looking for.
