Hydrating and soothing tonic that restores skin's microbial balance after shaving / 4 oz
Marie Veronique’s Louis Pierre Aftershave Tonic is designed specifically to soothe and hydrate recently-shaved, sensitive skin. It’s similar to our beloved Marie Veronique + Kristina Holey Balancing HypoTonic — one of our favorite products of all time — but streamlined and made appropriate for men’s thicker, generally oilier skin and its different microbial environment.
There are a few particular gems in this formula. Apple cider vinegar gives skin a mild tingle and helps bring skin back to its ideal pH levels (which is higher than that of women’s skin). Liquid trace minerals help restore skin’s microbial balance. Cucumber and elderberry cool and soothe, while tea tree oil fights breakouts. As we did at first with the HypoTonic, men might think, “Is this really necessary?” But after seeing that their skin is magically rehydrated, perfectly balanced, and irritation-free whenever they use it, they’ll realize that it is.
The Aftershave Tonic is also great for bearded men when applied to a cotton pad to get around beard edges post-shaving, and for those who shave at night, it can be used in place of a cleanser in the morning.
