    First, do you prefer an AS or an ASB? And which one is your favourite?
    I prefer ASBs. And my favourite is Truefitt and Hill Ultimate Comfort ASB. An absolute delight. Though I suppose I enjoy both because I always use Lucky Tiger splash and follow that with an ASB.

    I have only two balms. Nivea sensitive and Arko Comfort. I'll use the Arko more than the Nivea. I only use them if I really need them. Most of the time a good AS splash is more than good enough.
    Favorite AS? All of them
    Favorite ASB? So far Arko Comfort

    I like both. My den, however, is about 90% AS.
    The vintage AoS balms are my favorites.
    Eufros makes a wonderful balm.
    The old stand-by is the Nivea. (a bit greasy)

    My routine is a splash of aftershave then wait 10min and apply some aftershave lotion or gel.

    Right now my favorite is Elipson AS and Gillette aftershave gel. At least it's the combo I'm using the most lately.

    So I like both after a shave but voted for "balm" just because after a shower I will always lotion up my head and face. I've also been playing around with an unscented post shave gel. This stuff works extremely well after a shave and gets my face smoother than anything else I've tried. This is the same gel Phoenix AA uses for their Star Jelly line.

    I mostly prefer splashes, although I do have and use a few balms. #1 for me is Floid Vigoroso. Stirling Glacial Lemon and Proraso green are not too far behind.

    I just discovered the Red One line of ASB. I'm impressed to be honest. It's up there with the Arko ASB.
    Here's their catalog. I think it's in Turkish. So, I have no idea what it says.

    I use both, but not all the time. I use balms in the winter when the heat dries out my skin and sometimes follow the balm with a splash. In the warmer months I just use a splash. I'd say my favorite balm is Taylor of Old Bond Street Mr. Taylor's Luxury Aftershave Balm. My favorite splash is Pinaud Clubman.

    I am an aftershave splash guy. I have around 50 different brands and flavors.

    The TSD aftershave milks were quite good. I enjoyed the Anherb aftershave gel while it was available.

    If I had to pick just one aftershave treatment for the rest of my life, I would choose Speick splash.
