Being a STRONG advocate of aftershave balms, I always enjoy trying out new ones that come on the market. TASK Essential has clearly created quite a bit of attention with their choice of bright red boxes and simplified product list.
So of course I had to try a few!
Their aftershave balm speaks of calming the skin with ingredients like Aloe Vera & Witch hazel. But what caught my attention was their claim to have fresh plant extracts enriched with molecules of oxygen. Pretty cool! What I liked about this balm is that it moisturizes the skin very well. There was absolutely no need to follow with a daily moisturizer on my bearded area. It also has a nice subtle fragrance.
As for calming the skin from potential razor burn, I personally did not feel anything to support that guarantee. It may be due to having had independently good shaves during the testing of this balm, so I will reserve final judgment until I use it following a less-than-ideal-shave (it does happen from time to time). What I can say without hesitation though is that as a moisturizing aftershave balm it did the job quite nicely.
