After a thorough study of the beauty market, our experts have compiled a rating, including the 12 best after shave products.

What to look for when choosing after shave products

  1. Kinds. There are several categories: creams and balms moisturize, soften, nourish. Suitable for dry, sensitive and allergic skin. Creams will show themselves especially well in the cold season, when there is a lack of vitamins and moisture in the body; gels are lighter in consistency than creams, so it is better to buy them in the summer so as not to overload the skin, because due to hot weather there is an abundant release of sebum; lotions differ in that they disinfect small wounds due to the content of alcohol in the composition. The concentration of antiseptic in lotions is different. 50% will not harm skin prone to oily content, but no more than 30% is recommended for dry and sensitive skin.
  2. Composition. Choose formulations based on the desired result. Remember that the ingredients listed at the beginning are active, because their content in the product is greatest. If the task is to moisturize the skin, then glycerin, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera extract will help; prevent infections – salicylic acid and alcohol; accelerate cell regeneration and provide nutrition – vitamins (C, E, A).
  3. Aroma. He should cheer up and invigorate. If for some reason the perfume repels, then the purchase should be abandoned. After shaving, you will have to regularly use it, and hardly anyone wants to inhale an unpleasant scent for several hours.
