I love receiving products from BuyGreen as they’re packaged in reused boxes. It’s a cool feature, the boxes are stamped on the inside that they’ve shamelessly reused the box, and that’s great in my opinion.
This time I received Miessence After Shave Balm. It’s a pretty expensive product, at $23.95, but less than some high end traditional after shave balms and lotions.
It’s Certified Organic which according to their standards means that “it contains at least 95% organically produced agricultural ingredients (excluding water and salt). The remaining ingredients (up to 5%) can be non-agricultural substances or non-organically produced agricultural ingredients, with strict processing criteria (eg: absolutely no GMOs or synthetics chemicals)”.
Made with organic chamomile and marshmallow, these are the two things you can smell the most. It also contains organic witch hazel, aloe vera and St. John’s wort to help soothe and calm razor burn. It comes in a pump bottom which makes it easy to apply. It works nciely, it was quickly absorbed, didn’t leave me looking shiny or greasy, and I didn’t feel like I needed to wash my hands to get it off afterwards.
Putting a balm on that contains only edible ingredients makes me think it’s got to be better for me that those weird long-named chemicals I see on other after shave products.
Apparently the ingredients are also cold-formulated so precious oils are never exposed to damaging heat. I didn’t know that, but sounds good.
