Soothing Lavender Aftershave Balm

This whipped aftershave balm is perfect for use on both the face and the legs, with its soothing and moisturising properties. Coconut oil and grapeseed oil combine to counteract the drying effect that shaving can have, whilst lavender stops any potential itching.

When complete the balm has a whipped consistency and a sweet-woody scent that is absolutely irresistible.
