I do not like shaving. Or more to the point I do not like shaving because of the after effects. I seem to be one of those men for whom shaving feels like I have shaved off a few layers of skin along with the hair on my face. I have tried a lot of post shave remedies from lotions to balms to oils to creams but I have to say I have finally found one that actually seems to work. So if you too are inflicted by razor burn, then read on and find out how this little bottle will fight the fire of razor burn for you!
Origins Fire Fighter has the tag line "to take the burn out of shaving". A bold claim I hear you say, but in all honesty it is a truism rather than advertising speak. Usually after shaving my neck would feel very irritated and itchy, but as soon as I have finished shaving and dried off my face and neck I apply a few dabs to either cheek, around the mouth and to the neck, rub it in and I am left feeling good without any irritation. There is no Malcauley Culkin moment either, no alcohol in it, so no screams when applying it, just an instant sense of relief!
I know it sounds too good to be true and I can understand why anyone would be sceptical. I too have tried any number of different lotions to try to prevent razor burn, but none work as well as this. Origins Fire Fighter contains chamomile, cucumber and winterbloom which even sound cooling! It also contains eucalyptus and peppermint to help make you feel fresh and alive!
Origins fire fighter does work, it douses the flames caused by dragging a razor blade (or five!) across your face to remove hairs. I would definitely recommend this.
Another good point is that the scent off this is extremely subtle, if you can smell it at all. Therefore it will not affect your after shave.
The only downside is the price. It is £15.00 for a small bottle, just 50 ml. However, I shave every day and this bottle lasts approximately 6 months. I think that is pretty good value, as you do not need to apply a lot of the lotion, so it does stretch. You might be lucky enough to get one in the sales, so go hunting in January! Trust me though, it is definitely worth the price.
