Arran Aromatics Bay Citrus Aftershave Balm

I picked this up to get me over the cost of free delivery. It was worth it.

This was my first experience with Arran Aromatics and I added the balm to my basket purely because I hate paying for postage (I’d rather get a product).

When it arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

The scent is thick and strong, but it’s not overpowering. I really like it. It’s quite strong initially, but it settles down quickly. It lingers, but you won’t offend others.

It’s a proper balm, nice and thick, but goes on easily and without any greasy feeling. It’s absorbed quickly as well. It also seemed to help with irritation.

It comes in a plastic tube, which is nicely designed, but obviously not exciting as far as packaging goes.


Partly because of the fragrance, but also because of the performance, I went out and bought a couple of other AA products, which is high praise. I like this balm a lot. At full price, it’s hard to justify above those you can get cheaper, but for under £6 it’s undeniably a bargain.
