Mens Aftershave & Post Shave Balms
Stop shaving irritation in its tracks. It is always better to prevent it than to treat it. At LOOKFANTASTIC, you can find a wide selection of post-shave products like balms and aftershave lotion, specially designed to help reduce irritation caused by shaving.
You may wonder what the difference is between men's aftershave and cologne. Although both can function as fragrance products, they serve different purposes.
Aftershave is applied to the face and neck after shaving to help soothe and disinfect the skin. Many aftershave lotions contain astringents such as alcohol or witch hazel to help prevent infection from shaving cuts. Aftershave balms are more moisturising than lotions as they tend not to contain alcohol. This makes an aftershave balm the ideal post-shave step to help to soothe and hydrate the skin - calming redness and minimising any burning sensation.
On the other hand, cologne is a type of fragrance that adds a pleasant scent to the body and is applied to the neck, wrists, or other pulse points. Cologne commonly contains a higher concentration of fragrance oils than aftershave and is not intended to serve any practical purpose beyond scent.
