Chatillon Lux Catalan's Prairie Post-Shave SalveChatillon Lux
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.
Additionally, our bearded brethren will find that the post-shave salve makes for an excellent beard balm that makes the beard soft as a rabbit's pelt while eliminating itchy or dry skin underneath.
When Henri Chatillon was chasing buffalo on the Oregon Trail, he would have appreciated the all-encompassing powers of the Chatillon Lux salve. And since a dime-sized dab is all you need: a little bit goes a long way.
Instructions for use: Take your trigger finger and scoop a dime-sized amount (or about otter-paw-sized, if you are Henri Chatillon), 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: This scent is a throwback to original line up from two years ago when Chatillon Lux first launched with three scents. Before it was named Carondelet, the area that would eventually become South Saint Louis was a rough-and-tumble trading hamlet located on the outskirts of Saint Louis proper. The citizens of Saint Louis had a few different nicknames for this town, one of which was Catalan’s Prairie, a reference to the large Spanish population from the region of Catalonia.
So we take a trip back in time with this scent, both in the history of Saint Louis and Chatillon Lux. The scent was designed to recreate the scents of prairie flowers in bloom during a sunny spring afternoon on the riverfront. The scent notes include violet, jasmine, freesia, lavender, labdanum, and sandalwood.
