Are you a by-gone, wayfaring, classic gentleperson? Do those fancy new aftershave balms and lotions clash with your vibe? Maybe it’s time to put down some of your hard earned dough on an old timey, liquid aftershave.
The world of aftershaves has largely transitioned to creams, balms, and lotions. And while those modern aftershaves are cheap and effective, they have a few downsides.
For one, modern aftershaves are basically just moisturizer. They don’t always work well for people with oily faces, and they can feel a bit cakey. Plus, balms need to be kneaded into your face, and some people just want an aftershave with a little less rubby-rubby and a little more splashy-splashy
This isn’t to say that liquid aftershaves aren’t moisturizing. They’re made from a blend of antiseptics, oils, and fragrance—like a hydrating, mild perfume that keeps your face bump-free.
There are tons of old timey aftershaves on the market, but it’s difficult to know what’s good and what’s bad. That’s why we’ve taken the time to find the top ten old fashioned aftershaves, for everyone’s needs.
