I bought this balm specifically to take on the road in my shaving kit. After all, T&H markets it as a travel tube. Turns out this tube's a little big for that, maybe half again as wide as the T&H shaving cream travel tubes (the perfect size) and more than twice as wide as Bond Of Old Taylor Street aftershave gels and creams tubes. My shaving kit is packed to the gills, and this would easily take up the most room of everything in it. But judged strictly as an aftershave balm, since it works great and feels really, really good on my face after shaving, I'll just make it part of my aftershave rotation at home. The bottom line is that it's a 5-star product in a 4-star package as marketed, so I'm giving it a 4.5 rating. Slim it down to match the travel shaving cream tubes and this balm would rate a 6.
