Best shaving and beard products of 2022

Best Aftershave

Nivea Men Sensitive Soothing After Shave Balm


This is the only product blurb on this list that will lead to a negative: we absolutely miss the old design pump, which made the product so much easier to use and dispense. That said, we’re still firm believers in the lightly scented balm with soothing chamomile and witch hazel – and no sign of drying alcohol. It’s aftershave perfection, especially for sensitive skin.
