When do you use Skin Food?

Stafford, VA


Skin Food is a popular aftershave product offered by Geo. F. Trumper. It is available in three fragrances: Coral (a light rose scent), Extract of Limes, and Sandalwood. Skin Food is a smooth gel-like liquid primarily intended for use as an aftershave treatment. Its formulation of rose water and glycerin makes it well hydrating and nourishing without the sting of alcohol splashes or greasiness of thicker balms. Aside from its popularity as an aftershave, Skin Food is a versatile product that can be used as an effective pre-shave treatment as well. It is a good alternative to using pre-shave oil when it is applied to the face before lathering. Whether you choose to use it as a pre-shave, aftershave, or both, about a dime size amount is more than enough for an effective application. Pour a small dab of Skin Food into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and gently rub it onto your wet face in a downward motion.
