Shocked that I couldn't find a thread dedicated to these offerings.
After trying the free sample offered at the store; I went to the store to grab Cade and L'Occitan travel sized Balms (they package them together at the store I went to) to see which scent I preferred. The sales person was gracious and filed two small containers with Bavx so that I could have a shot at all three varieties of balm. I can honestly say that after trying several balms that these suit my skin the best by a long shot. While the other balms have felt heavy, caused breakouts, or left an oily residue, the L'Occitane balms seem to get immediately absorbed by my skin with nothing but a pleasant scent remaining.
My neck has always given me trouble shaving, but after a week of daily use I am amazed by the improvement in my skin in my trouble areas - and that improvement has led to progressively better shaves. Which has left me with literally no irritation / redness / any signs of any ingrowns. I know this stuff is on the pricy side, but I think between the free samples and the $12 travel sizes L'Occitane makes their products accessible to see if it works for you as well as it has worked for me.
