I got into aftershave balms relatively recently. I am still doing exploration!

I have and like: B&M, Wholly Kaw, Zingari Man, and Hawkins and Brimble. I am a bit put off by the alcohol in the latter, but I can't fault the performance.

I would like to try:

Captain Fawcett's
Mane Tame
Weleda
Alvarez Gomez
Kiehl's Facial Fuel
Cella Bio
La Toja
Speick
Lather & Wood
Brickell
Marlowe

But I really don't want to buy them all. If what I have is better than these, I will skip them.

So, does anyone feel that some of these are worth a try?

EDIT: would love to suggest was laughing so hard from Lip's Trashy Women post, neglected to read the opening post of this thread. However, truth told, reading is fundamental....

Love ETHOS Skin Food but view it in a unique category separate from and used in addition to AS and/or balms. 

My favourite AS balm, hands down is ABC, especially Apricot Hull but all ABC variants are great

My $.02….. you left out AoS Balm, it’s brilliant and the LE Olibanum Pepper is pure spicy Frankincense! Sandalwood is my go to.  Recently I’ve purchased unscented by A&E opened it and atomized in some Black Afgano. If you can grab some Paladin unscented balm, that’s worth having too

I have used a lot of balms over the years and ABC wins by a long shot. They are all great but Apricot Hull is special. I order enough from Italy for free fast delivery.

Hands down, Apricot, Best of the Best, THE top spot for balms!

PAA makes good aftershave balms along with their “jellies”. Not bad on price either.

Alright...

You have piqued my curiosity about ABC.

What is the difference among the balms?

Is the Apricot Hull significantly better than the cheaper alternatives?

Have them all, want some samples?

That is so generous of you.

At this point I am tempted to say no. Hawkins & Brimble is serving me very well.

That being said... can of worms here...

Which are your favorites? Which are the best?

The only balm on my shortlist is Mysterium Serum. From reading reviews I have put the others on the back burner.

But I value your opinion as you have tried much of what I am targeting!

Many, many thanks.
