Giving yourself the best shave in the world is important for several reasons. It promotes a sense of self-confidence when you look your best. A clean-shaven face prevents ingrown hairs and other irritation issues from cropping up. And, you can take better care of your skin. For that last benefit to be fully realized, you’re going to need an excellent aftershave.
The best aftershaves will return moisture lost through shaving and revitalize your skin. They can even awaken your senses and sharpen your mind and body to tackle the day ahead. Shaving sensitive skin is a particular challenge. With the right aftershave, you can be sure that you’re up to that challenge every day! Below you will find the ten best aftershaves for skincare, moisturizing, price, and more.
A wonderful balm that can be used during as well as after the shave. Nivea’s formula is a must-have for people with sensitive skin that suffer from a rough shave. You’ll have healthy-looking skin that is comfortable and smooth to the touch.
Sensitive skin can be a nightmare to look after. The shaving process takes a lot of moisture out of the skin, leaving it dry and susceptible to irritation. With this, you not only get a beautiful smooth finish, but your skin will feel and look healthier.
This balm doesn’t give off any overpowering scents, nor does it feel greasy or oily if you use it every day. It will become an essential part of your skincare routine. Use it as a moisturizer substitute, even if you don’t shave every day.
A cooling, soothing blend of ingredients in this aftershave lotion will bring you out of the bathroom each morning feeling fresh and ready for the day. Post-shave you and your skin will be cool and refreshed. The formula is almost entirely natural, making it even kinder to skin.
Each ingredient sets out to do a job: make your skin feel new again. Eucalyptus will soften and soothe your skin and hair. Witch hazel is fantastic as protection against rashes and razor burn. Menthol finishes the experience with a revitalizing wave of coolness.
The 95% natural ingredient content used in this product is a mark of a lotion that will do everything it can to protect your skin. It contains no parabens, silicones, additives, or animal-derived products. The formula lowers the chances of any dryness or irritation.
AoS put the classical barbershop touch into their products, from package design to the scents and professional effect on the skin. It is worth every penny you spend on it and will leave you feeling like a new person with every shave.
There’s something about a simple, traditional, sandalwood fragrance to convince you that your bathroom is an old-timey barbershop. Use it with the rest of the AoS range for the ultimate pampering from the comfort of your own home.
Amazing To Gift
Even the box that this balm comes in is a treat on the eyes. This product is a terrific gift; whether it be Christmas Day, Father’s Day, a birthday, or even a Sunday! It has the quality to back up the looks and will be a surefire winner once it’s been unwrapped.
This is a great little bottle – and ideal for busy travelers who may not have time for a huge bathroom routine. It’s been an American staple for over 100 years. When a product lasts that long, it has to be tried today.
On The Go
If you are in a job that has you jetting all over the country – or even further afield – this is perfect to stash in your carryon. The bottle is light and well-designed to avoid any messing around with awkward pumps or clogged lids.
A Classic With Modern Benefits
The scent of this aftershave has become a vintage across America over the century-plus of it being on the market. With such a classic fragrance comes the moisturizing and smooth skin that we expect from our aftershaves in 2020.
This Clubman aftershave is something a little more suave and sophisticated for the more old school gentleman. It’s another lotion that has been around for over a century. Clubman retains the clean, masculine smell: and it can still show the younger products a thing or two.
This is another example of an older brand that has come through a century of production to be here today. It harkens back with an old-school scent with a masculine musk that is a favorite of the more mature man. It’s a good product for those who come into contact with you, as well as yourself.
Cools And Soothes
While you do get more of that vintage aftershave sting when you use this lotion, it won’t dry out your skin. It instead provides you with a cooling freshness to accompany every shave with a revitalizing feeling of awakenment.
Another vintage scent up next, this time from Old Spice. The classic scent is fantastic, the sting is very minimal, and you’ll be swimming in compliments from both your aroma and good-looking skin. The dabber-style bottle also gives you a sophisticated feeling when you put it on each day.
The finest thing I can say about this aftershave is that it’s by far my favorite fragrance on this list. It gives you a real feeling of (non-toxic) manliness every time you apply it. For me, nothing makes me feel more mature and grown-up. Which, as every man knows, is difficult for us perpetual children.
You may look at the ingredients and see that alcohol comes in at number one. However, this lotion does not dry out your skin as you might imagine. Instead, it leaves your skin soft while retaining a healthy look.
We’re going back to a balm that is more focused on awesome skincare next. Cremo’s aftershave is all about refreshing your skin to make you feel like a different person from the one who just rolled out of bed!
While the last few products we’ve looked at have been fantastic scents, this one is for your sensitive skin crew. The moisturizing effects you will get from this balm will revitalize your skin. You’ll be awakened and raring to go with every use.
Shaving Is A Breeze
The menthol in this balm will cool and refresh your skin. The tea tree oils keep you soft, smooth, and clear or bumps, razor burn, and pimples. All in all, it’s an excellent choice if you have sensitive skin or any aversions to highly perfumed products.
As you can probably guess by the name; one of the key ingredients of this aftershave is the wonderful shea butter. The other is tea tree oil, so you will already know that this one is worth trying out.
The combination of shea and tea tree is a potent way to give yourself fabulous skin after every shave. They work to tighten your skin, clear pores, and nourish every inch that it is applied to. If you have any nicks already, this will help nourish and clean them for you.
Most aftershaves sting a little. It’s a fact of life; and usually means that they are giving you that fresh, cooling sensation. With this, you get the best of both worlds. It soothes you into having no sting at all, while still giving you that minty fresh finish.
There is plenty to like about this balm from Viking Revolution. It’s a mostly natural product that is, therefore, kinder on sensitive skin. The moisturizing effect is almost on par with actual moisturizing cream, and the scent is a gentle undertone that smells great.
The blend of natural ingredients in this balm gives this product top marks in a moisture-rich application. Your skin will be so soft after applying that you may not even need a moisturizer at all!
Something that I’ve not mentioned on this list so far is the difficulty that a lot of customers like yourself face when returning shaving products. Particularly when bought online, there can be issues in refunding faulty or unsatisfactory items. Viking Revolution guarantees your money back if you’re in any way unhappy.
A handy extra usage for this aftershave: it’s an SPF 15 sunscreen, too! Don’t think that the extra functionality is affecting the core skincare and aftershave treatment, however. L’Oreal knows what it’s doing in that department.
24 Hour Moisturization
You get an unprecedented fight against all signs of dry skin. This balm tackles redness, rash, burn, and irritation to leave you with nothing except soft and smooth skin. The effects will last you until you shave again the following morning.
The one thing that sets this product apart from the rest of this list is the sun protection it offers. While it isn’t exactly worthy of a day on the beach, the protection it offers will certainly carry you through a regular day. Plus, it’s handy to have to hand in a jam.
A good aftershave can make a world of difference as you go through your morning routine. Having soft, smooth skin will set you up for the day feeling comfortable and content. You’ll want to look for a product that is tailor-made for your skin, whether sensitive, oily, or dry. Aftershave should be a regular part of your shaving ritual; and with the right choice from this list, you’ll wonder how you ever went without it!
