Our Bay Rum Aftershave Balm soothes skin without leaving it greasy or looking shiny. Made in small batches to ensure highest quality, our formula is both alcohol-free and paraben-free and we use only natural essential oils for 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.

I have a pretty sensitive neck area and always seem to experience mild razor bumps and red irritation after double edge shaving with a brand new blade. What ive found to work best is to immediately use pure witch hazel on cotton balls immediately after cold rinse and towel dry followed by Gilbert Henrys Bay Rum. This stuff is amazing. Starts out with warm tingle then the razor burn relief. Very moisturizing, non sticky, goes on smooth and the smell is great. A little clove heavy but after 5 minutes is perfect. Majorly reduces shaving irritation with a new sharp blade. Will be buying more! Ive tried Art of Shaving aftershave balm, Nivea sensitive, Pinaud Clubman, Nivea Cool Ice and L'Occitane Cade. Gilberts Bay Rum and the Cade are by far the best at soothing and moisturizing my sensitive neck.

To start off. it smells great. You also just need about maybe a nickel size dab of it for it to spread well throughout your whole face. It leaves my skin really smooth. not oily or dry but just PERFECT. I can also tell how the health of my skin is improving and also looks better. I will Definitely be buying more.

I enjoy the spicy smell of colognes that remind me of the caribbean where I love to sail and dive. This aftershave balm works well with my colognes that I wear and get the skin feeling great. I have not been using the balm for a long enough period to give it a full five stars so I may have to go back and revive the review after a longer trial period.

My husband and I honeymooned on St. Johns and hiked in the forest (filled with bay rum trees). We've never been able to find a good bay rum aftershave that had essential oils and no alcohol. My husband smells fantastic when he uses this... need I say more?

I shave every day, but I have a sensible skin prone to cuts and redness especially in the neck, and I'm always on the look for shaving creams and shaving balms that help me reduce those problems.
I've come across this bay rum by chance, and I have to say it is the best after shave I've ever tried. A tiny amount leaves the skin soft and greatly reduces the redness on my neck. This balm has now become my first choice.

I got this product three days ago and have been using it for two days.
It really is a fantastic product: feels great, smells great! It will be my go to after shave for everyday use. I will be ordering more. My only complaint is the delivery of the product. The bottle is beautiful but the balm can be difficult to get out without running the risk of getting messy. Someone posted a comment that it can be like trying to get ketchup out of a vintage bottle. Perhaps launching a line in a squeezable bottle like the sample balm would resolve this but other than that it is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!

Works great, a little bit cover entire face, just not my favorite smell. Well worth using because it feels great and the smell doesnt last long

A very smooth, spicy bay rum that lasts longer than any other alcohol-based version I've found. Also zero burn, just coolness at first with a gentle warming a few minutes after applying.
Simply put, the best bay rum aftershave you can get, or should, for that matter.
ONE DRAWBACK: Even though it is much thicker than the runny alcohol-based bay rums, it still has the same narrow cutout for dispensing. Ever try to get ketchup out of a full bottle? It's like that, only smaller. I do not know how to fix this, but getting the good stuff out of the bottle was the only drawback!

Purchased a travel size bottle and will be ordering a larger size. Love the fact that its alcohol free and the first ingredient is not water but aloe juice. Hydrates skin well, very soothing. Absorbs quickly. I only gave this four stars because Bay Rum is new to me. Smells clean, not chemically. I think this product is a must for people new to the wet shaving world. Would absolutely recommend it. Thanks to Shaving101.com for a good solid review of a great product.
