To use or not to use aftershave?

Thursday August 16, 2018
I haven't used any aftershave so far - I'm putting my faith in the scent of the soap itself. The good ones cost enough!

Is it unusual to not use aftershave, aftershave balm etc., or is this a choice several guys make?

And what am I missing?

Here's my opinion... Aftershave completely clears out your pores of any bacteria that was hanging around from the razor blade shaving soap or cream, and also The alcohol in many aftershaves acts as an astringent, and so can help slow bleeding a bit. if the aftershave has witch hazel in it as well, even better – its a potent astringent too. And alcohol also acts as an antiseptic, which can help prevent skin infections like razor burn or irritation..I advise that you try using Aloe Vera gel ,(my personal favourite) witch hazel, or a/s balm as a 'Post Shave' .especially in the colder months of the year. Hope this helps. Regards. B.
PS: A good Post shave doesn't have to cost a fortune....Aloe vera Gel is very reasonably priced.
