Product Description

Instead of carrying a satchel full of products like moisturizers, astringents, and healing balms, we combine everything into one product: our post-shave salve. The moisturizing properties of the glycerin and lanolin reinforce the all-around goodness of shea butter, avocado oil and coconut oil. After scraping your skin with cold, hard steel, witch hazel and aloe vera sooth irritation and battle redness.

Instructions for use: Take your trigger finger and scoop a dime-sized amount, a little bit goes a long way… then rub it between your palms until it reaches body temperature. Massage it into your freshly shorn, still damp skin. Make sure you take the time to really work it into damp skin for 45 seconds to a minute, which helps with absorption and allows you to enjoy the blooming scent. Depending on the dryness of the skin, the absorption time will vary.


Scent Notes:

We created Bon Vivant as tribute to Jerry “The Professor” Thomas inspired by a whiskey drink with chartreuse and orange bitters. The scent itself is spicy and warm with a twist of citrus on the top. It is completely unlike any other scent creation that we have made thus far, and we are very proud to release such a sharp divergence from our scent lineup.

The notes include caramel, birch tar, black pepper, maple syrup, vanilla, patchouli, neroli, petitgrain, yuzu citrus, ginger, anise, juniper berry, white grapefruit, wormwood and coriander.

    CL is one of the best post shave treatments for folks with sensitive faces who need lots of help and who also like a nice scent.

    CL salves need to be applied per instructions. Apply to a wet face and rub in carefully, making sure you have even amounts of salve on both hands. Takes about 1 to 2 mins to work into your face, but soothes and moisturizes better than just about anything on the market for less than 30 bucks.

    The Bon Vivant is the weirdest CL scent, smelling like a mixed drink using orange bitters. This is a dry, resinous citrus scent with a strong smoky smell and a woodsy scent to it. This is very much an acquired taste, and if you do not like birch tar / cade type scents, try a sample first. If you like the scent, this will be a unique and interesting salve to wear, smelling very different from the rest of the CL scent line, which tend to be more naturalistic.

    The small bottle will last for some time, as you use half a fingertip worth of product per use. Given the great scent, immensely effective benefits, and low price, the CL salve line is one of the best kept secrets of wet shaving.
