The Post Shave Lotion comes with VeloSkin's signature scent of orange blossom and bergamot oil. This natural fragrance is pleasant rather than overpowering, and works well on either your face or legs.
It leaves no residue – despite being pretty thick, it's absorbed well into the skin and leaves only a fresh feeling behind. I found this lotion not only helps soothe away irritation from shaving, but helps seal up small cuts and stops you bleeding everywhere.
Since this Post Shave Lotion is designed to be used sparingly, it lasts rather a long time anyway. Over a month, I used only a third of a pot.
VeloSkin Post Shave Lotion is effective at reducing irritation and bleeding from shaving cuts on legs or faces. It smells good, leaves no greasy residue and lasts well too – plus the ingredients are all natural. There are cheaper options, but for a premium product this is actually well-priced.

How does the price compare to that of similar products in the market, including ones recently tested on road.cc?
There are few cycling-specific post shave lotions out there, and generic ones come a lot cheaper. That said, this does feel like a premium product – and premium lotions are WAY more expensive – so it's actually middling.

This lotion leaves my skin feeling protected and soothed, without leaving any residue – it works very well. The only real drawback is the price, as regular post-shave balms can be had for 30-50 percent less cash. For instance, Harry's Post Shave Balm is £7 for 100ml, and Bulldog Sensitive After Shave Balm is £5.49 for 100ml (£10.50 and £8.24 per 150ml). On the other hand, premium products such as Clinique For Men Post-Shave Soother and Liz Earle Mens After Shaving Moisturiser work out at £42 and £66 per 150ml respectively!
