    Best Aftershave Balm/Gel: to prevent razor bumps

    Use an exfoliant over the bumps, followed by an aftershave with alcohol, in the evenings. My choice is La Toja and might be because of the natural salts/minerals in it, but it does the best job in my opinion of healing small nicks and problems on the skin.. Also, using an exfoliant every day in...

    Found after 30+ years I couldn't stand the Tabac scent anymore!
