I get sent a lot of different things to test, from wanking tools (HERE) to moisturisers and many other things that don’t get mentioned on these pages for various reasons, mostly due to the sheer amount of products I receive.

Yet I was quite pleased when sent me a tube of Fino Soothe After Shave, as I have always had the problem of very sensitive skin both from shaving and general weather conditions. The 50ml tube of Fino Soothe After Shave Balm could not have come at a better time as I have just started using a bladed razor again (Moving from electric) and was having a couple of problems with ingrown hairs (On my face, not from my back, crack and sack wax. What? Oh nothing to see here…moving on)

So my routine included taking pain killers before my appointment…

Wait, sorry I’m talking about getting my balls waxed again. Apologies.

So my routine comprised the regular shaving gel and I’ve been using the new Gillette M3 Power razor, which gives a close and comfortable shave. However with a close shave also comes some form of irritation for sensitive and non sensitive skin alike.

My first memories of anyone shaving was my dad, using a one bladed razor, then slapping on Old Spice that would burn and sting…but he was an old school man! These days we can get by with better products that don’t sting or dry out the skin.

Enter Fino Soothe After Shave Balm…

Fino Soother After Shave Balm

Alcohol free so it won’t dry your skin out and fragrance free so it won’t iritate your skin which has just had a blade pulled across it. Fino Soothe is a blend of Vitamin A (Excellent for the skin) and fruit extracts to gently exfoliate, purify and revitalise the skin. It’s ideal for wet shaving, dry shaving and waxing to prevent ingrown hairs, razor bumps  and razor burn.

But enough of what the label says, did it really work?


No ingrown hairs, no razor burn…no problem!

Like an absolute charm!

The texture is creamy, but it absorbs very easily and is not greasy at all. Yet it stll managed to moisturise my admittedly very dry skin, and kept it moisturised all day, even through these changing weather conditions in Cape Town.

The best thing of all is the all natural fragrance of it. You can apply it and have no problem with it interacting with your regular eau de toilette. And the result:

Smooth, protected and well moisturised skin free of any stinging, ingrown hairs or razor burn.


You simple shave, and apply the after shave balm after patting your skin dry (Never rub your skin dry) and you are protected all day long by the natural ingredients found in Fino Soothe. Moisturised and protected skin equals healthy skin which is much more apt at protecting your body from external aggressors. Healthy looking and feeling skin also boosts your self confidence and makes you put out quite a sick vibe.

At R90 for 50ml’s, Fino Soothe get’s an official SLXS Editor’s Choice stamp of approval. It’s a top quality locally made products that delivers top results at a fraction of the price of imported brands and works hard at protecting your skin while you’reout saving the world, just as I do, every day!
