Aftershaves are the products that are applied immediately after shaving to provide some combination of irritation relief and skin moisturizing. They come in a range of different strengths and different names. The strength of an aftershave means how much ‘pure fragrance’ is in the bottle and they can be divided into two broad categories: balms and splashes.
Balms have a heavier-feeling on the skin and typically provide more irritation relief. Splashes generally contain a combination of toners to provide antibacterial protection to the skin.
The general criteria for selecting the right aftershave include:
1 Superior performance
2 Available in a variety of scents
3 Time on the market
