Advertised as “Lucky Tiger Barber Shop Classics Ointment for Razor Bump Treatment” the label reads “It also helps reduce the redness from razor burn”.
I have found several combinations of different shaving products that can give me what I would consider a fantastic shave, pretty well as perfect as I think that I can get. That said, I enjoy trying new shaving creams and soaps, aftershaves, etc. and am working on a Razor Blade Sharpness Project compiling a chart to compare the sharpness of every DE Razor Blade that I can find.
I have rather sensitive skin and trying all these new products sometimes results in the dreaded irritation, primarily on my neck. I like to continue to try new things as I keep finding new great products, and many razor blades that I do not think I would have tried if it weren’t for the testing have turned out to be amazing.
I stumbled across the Lucky Tiger Moisturizing Ointment on one of my favorite online shaving sites. I figured I would give it a shot and see if this might be the miracle product everyone is looking for (the jar sure looks like it!).
I have good and bad news regarding my experience, if you are lucky the bad may not apply to you.
The good news is that it actually works quite well. I waited until I had a shave that disagreed with me, and for the first time was almost happy about it as it meant that I got to try out the Lucky Tiger Moisturizing Ointment.
As soon as it is applied, it is cooling and calming at the same time. It literally almost worked before my eyes, not quite, but fast. Within minutes it the irritation had noticeably decreased, and was basically gone in the morning (I put on at night).
In the jar It smells like tiger balm, which I don’t really know how to describe. It’s almost minty, menthol and eucalyptus but it does not contain any mint, menthol or eucalyptus. It’s kind of like a medicinal vapor rub scent.
The bad news, which breaks my heart, is the smell after it’s applied. There are some interesting ingredients (listed below) that maybe don’t react well with my skin. It literally stunk extremely bad and the smell would not go away. It almost smelled like some sort of burning plastic that I could not shake.
As I try many new aftershaves I frequently ask my wife to give me a quick sniff for her input. As every time in the past has been at minimum a pleasurable smell, she eagerly agreed and moved right in.
Her head snapped back and I felt almost bad as I saw the confused and disappointed look on her face, the only thing she said was “ewwwww!” Asking her again a couple days later to recap and get her take on the smell, all she said was “I don’t know, it was just gross”.
I am disappointed that a product that works for what I bought it for has such a critical side effect. Based on this one fact I obviously cannot use this product, however it is possible that it is just reacting poorly with my skin. If you use it and the smell does not sicken yourself or close ones then it would be a good product to keep around.
