Wickham are the best balms I have used by a very large margin
After the good experience with the Wickham Shaving Soaps I purchased recently, I thought I would try out their post shave balms, and I am so glad I did.
From past experience of other balms I have used, these can sometimes be difficult to work into the skin, leaving a noticeable almost greasy/shining look to the skin, and also not much lasting scent. You only need around half a fingertip of the Wickham balm, and I rubbed it between the fingers on both hands and then over my face where I had shaved. My face immediately felt soothed and refreshed and still feels like this some five hours later. Also, the scent is absolutely amazing, it smells exactly like the Parma Violets sweets I had as a kid.
On the subject of scent, I shaved at 7:30 am, and the scent does linger around for several hours which I find is nice. The balm worked into my skin very easily, and left my face lovely and soft, and refreshed and soothed after the shave, and without the greasy, shiny look that some other balms can leave.
I will be choosing Wickham for all my shaving balms and shaving soaps from now on.
Well done Darron and all the team over at Wickham, for the outstanding products you all make, British Artisan products at their very best.
And lastly, a big thank you to Agent Shave for the speedy service.
