It doesn’t matter who you are, the skin on your face is the thinnest, least-tough skin on your body. And when you shave, you’re subjecting it to some relatively harsh treatment. It used to be, after you dragged a razor across your face, you slapped on some alcohol, felt the burn and went on your way.
Brutal Truth is a men’s skincare company from Australia that wants you to be a little nicer to your face. Their aftershave balm is made (like all their products) from botanical extracts including aloe vera, avocado and sunflower seed oil, along with native Australian ingredients like Kakadu plum and old man weed. They work together to calm, protect and moisturize the skin on your face. More of a “thank you” than a “take that!” Plus the scent of sandalwood, vetiver and patchouli makes you smell good, too. – $28
