Captain's Choice After Shave Balm

  • Non-alcohol aftershave balm
  • With fruit extracts, aloe, shea butter, & glycerin
  • Choose your scent from the dropdown menu

The Captain has been providing exceptional grooming products to the masses of wet shavers since 2011. His products are simple, traditional, and quality. Make Captain's Choice, your choice. The Captain makes sure that his products are well tested -- and well-loved -- by users before he releases them. So when he comes up with a new product, we take note. The newest in the lineup is a range of shave balms -- in the same scents as his well-loved aftershaves.

If you don't love the sting of alcohol, here is the choice for you. Try this balm for smooth, hydrated, and rejuvenated post-shave skin. It also works great as a daily moisturizer, without that lotiony feel. Your face will feel refreshed and nourished all day long. With fruit extracts, aloe, shea butter, and glycerin in this proprietary formula, you have a powerhouse of hydration in a small bottle. And a little bit goes a long way. One pump from the convenient dispenser on each side of your face and you are good to go.

  • Bay Rum: This Bay Rum has made Bay lovers out of Bay haters, and it just might sway you, too. It delivers an authentic scent but with NO clove. The bay scent dominates, but it is coupled with hints of cinnamon and citrus. This is the scent that started it all for the Captain.
  • Land Ho!: And this Land ho! aroma is just what you need to start your day off right. It is a light, refreshing aroma in the vein of a fougere. A citrus-forward start blends into a lavender note, as refreshing as catching sight of your destination off the port bow after months at sea.
  • Sandalwood: This is the Captain's well-loved Sandalwood aroma. Like the aftershave and soap that bear the same fragrance, this is a unique one-note scent. It possesses a low-key profile with a gentle, lingering aroma. During scent development, men loved it, women RAVED about it.

Size: 4oz.

Nice product.

As a shave balm, this is good. Refreshing to the skin without the alcohol burn. Moisturizer works very well on my face as well. I normally go 2 to 3 days between shaves and my face still feels great by the time I get to shave again. The scent stays with you but is very faint. I wish the scent was a little stronger and longer-lasting. However, if you had a cologne that paired well with it, you may not want the scent as strong. I normally don't wear cologne so the aftershave is what stays with me all day. I am going to give it a 4 star simply because, in my opinion, the scent should last longer. If the scent was not a concern to me it would be 5 stars.

A True "Balm"!

I was hoping for a "balmy" experience and I certainly got one! This is an excellent balm, which is refreshing without the burn. Sensitive skin just can't take alcohol laden aftershaves and this Bay Rum Captain's Choice is the perfect aftershave experience for me. Thank you!!

Captain's Choice Bay Rum Shave Balm!

I bought this to pair up with my Barrister and Mann Bay Rum soap and it is a great match. Sweeter in scent but matches very well. Since i cannot purchase aftershaves containing alcohol due to international shipping restrictions, this is what i bet on next and it was well worth the purchase. Highly recommended!!
