Today I'm going to wax lyrical about the NEW Bergamot & Basil Post Shave Balm by Dermot O'Leary for M&S.
As regular readers of the blog will know I'm a fan of the Dermot O'Leary X M&S's collaborations. I've reviewed the Earl Grey & Sandalwood fragrances previously on my blog and I'm continually buying and replenishing the range.
Dermot has once again teamed up with the in-house team over at M&S to create a soothing balm to reduce the effects of shaving. In his own words Dermot echoes my thoughts on the frustration that can come with shaving.
"It's been collaborating with the team at M&S to further expand the collection and bring another fantastic new product to launch. I'm really proud of the family of grooming products we've developed together, and I'm looking forward to adding the Post Shave Balm to my daily routine - shaving can be a nuisance, but your skin shouldn't suffer for it!"
Shaving can be a joyless experience because of the irritation it causes. I've come accustomed to using an assortment of beard trimmers overtime, however still use the razor for the bib of the neckline and cheek bones.
This past week I've road-tested the NEW Bergamot & Basil Post Shave Balm by Dermot O'Leary for M&S in some sensitive areas around my collarbone, high cheek and general neck area.
For those unfamiliar with the bergamot bitter it yields a citrus-like fragrance, with a distinctive spicy-floral quality. It's this spicy and sweet opening that will grab you first. Like most post shave balms it will hydrate your skin, and this one is rich enough that you can feel your skin accept the balm.
Others I've tried can have a tendency to gloss over the skin, leaving an oily finish which isn't very satisfying. This post shave balm is specially formulated to soothe and calm, the balm features the uplifting notes of the best-selling Bergamot & Basil fragrance; a gentle scent of citrus, layered with undertones of precious amber.
