The Best Post-Shave Products for Sensitive Skin
By now, it’s common knowledge that your skin is most vulnerable after shaving – and yet we often find it difficult to give our face the care and attention it needs. The James Bond school of thought dictates that you slap on the finest fragrance immediately after shaving with a cutthroat razor (and preferably just before inventively offing another anonymous henchman).
We’ve come a long way since 007 first stepped into his tux and onto our screens, however. The post-shave products available today are formulated with the needs of your skin first and foremost in mind, allowing men to enjoy both a close shave and a relaxed, comfortable complexion. Given all the effort and scientific know-how invested in new post-shave innovations, there has never been a better time to have sensitive skin. Read on for a run-down of products that would make Q branch proud.
