Our Bay Rum Aftershave Balm soothes skin without leaving it greasy or looking shiny. Our formula is paraben-free and we use only natural essential oils selected from 7 different countries across the globe to achieve the highest quality fragrance. Speaking of fragrance...this is a Bay Rum unlike any other. It is smooth and refined without being weak or fleeting. Top notes of citrus give way to bay rum and clove, which rest on a base of sandalwood and a hint of ylang ylang. This Bay Rum balm is also great as an all purpose lotion, and with its lingering spicy, woodsy scent it is the perfect counterpart to our Bay Rum Cologne and our Bay Rum Splash.
Bottled in 4 oz frosted glass.

Last week I received a bottle of Gilbert-Henry Bay Rum Aftershave Balm in the mail, and I've decided to share my impressions of it. First of all, the product comes handsomely packaged in a frosted glass bottle with simple black lettering. The top has a pump style dispenser which comes in handy. I find that for me, the perfect amount is four pumps, but obviously YMMV. The scent is heavy with cloves, I know some people don't like that smell, and if so this product isn't for you, but I find it pleasing. There is also an undercurrent of sweet citrus. Now, when I first sow this product reviewed on Shaving101, it was billed as alcohol and paraben free. Now, this product is still paraben free, but they must have changed the recipe, because it does contain alcohol, though it is fairly low on the ingredients list. My skin is not bothered much by alcohol, but if yours is sensitive to it, I would recommend trying this before you buy it, just in case. Upon applying this product after my shave, there is a pleasantly bracing burn which subsides quickly. This aftershave balm does not leave my skin feeling greasy which is a definite plus for me because that is a pet peeve of mine. Any leftover irritation and redness from my shave dissipates almost completely within 15 minutes of application. The scent, while powerful at first, fades quickly, though I still detect hints of it throughout the day, which I like because it mixes well with my cologne (Polo Double Black). Overall, this is a solid product that I enjoy using, and will continue to use in the future.

I read a review of the Gilbert Henry aftershave balm on shaving 101 and had to try it. I ordered the sample size for both products. It leaves your face smooth and supple. The Bay Rum really packs a punch on fragrance. I've tried a lot of after shave products and the two offered by Gilbert Henry are on the top of the list. Great quality and products. You will really enjoy the results.

this is by far the best bay rum balm that I have used. Soothing and the smell is great,, but not overwhelming. Makes looking forward to shaving.

I love Bay Rum, but don't always want the stinging of most alcohol based Bay Rum aftershaves. This balm/lotion has a great consistency that makes it easy to apply, and a little goes a long way. It does have a nice cooling effect that I start to notice after a few seconds, but doesn't last too long. The scent is noticeable, but not too strong. I don't usually notice it throughout the day, but every once in a while I will catch a whiff, so I know it is there. I would highly recommend this aftershave.
