The Truefitt & Hill 1805 aftershave is absolutely fantastic! I was so excited to use this, and it lived up to what I hoped it would be. My wife said the scent reminded her of what an old school barber shop would smell like.
1805 Shaving Cream
Scent: As I mentioned above, the scent is awesome. Some people online have said it’s a bit too strong for their taste, but I didn’t think that and neither did my wife. The 1805 aftershave balm is a lotion-ish balm that can be quite strong when you first apply it, however the scent fades to a very nice level for about an hour or so. The scent made my wife think of her grandpa (in a good way). I imagine this is how someone from the Rat Pack would smell, and all the ladies would fall for it.
Application: Very easy to apply, as I mentioned it’s a lotion balm that you just squirt out and apply to your skin. You don’t need much at all to cover your full face. It rubs in rather quickly and leaves a refreshing scent.
Moisturizer Rating: Although the scent and application are great, this is where this Truefitt & Hill 1805 review really stands out. I am someone with extremely sensitive skin to soaps, lotions, aftershaves, etc and this did a fantastic job as a moisturizer without being greasy at all. I didn’t need to wash or wipe my hands, just applied, rubbed in, and I was good to go.
Safe For Sensitive Skin: As you’ve seen me mention before, I am someone with sensitive skin. It’s a pain in the butt because there are so many products that I love, but I just simply cannot use. I’ve got news for you though, so far all the Truefitt & Hill products I’ve used have been fine for me (including the 1805 scent).
