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.
In the early days in the trading village of Carondelet, now part of South Saint Louis, the residents of Saint Louis proper referred to the neighboring trading hamlet as Vide Poche, French for “empty pockets.” The industrious spirit and underdog mentality both inspire the artistic renaissance currently taking place in South City, as well as this scent, titled Vide Poche.
The warm, vibrant feeling of South Saint Louis and Carondolet is conveyed with a gourmet combination of amber and sweet orange, with added sweetness coming from a garnish of geranium and honeysuckle. Driving the entire scent is our workhorse combination of lavender and bergamot.
