I don't know a single thing about aftershaves or cologne. It is one rabbit hole that I never went down. Because of eczema, and using products that dry the skin out to correct it, I never considered adding an alcohol based aftershave on top of already dry skin. I tried doing some research on the classic (locally available) aftershaves to find ingredient lists but haven't come up with much. Are they usually just alcohol and fragrance? If so, that won't help me too much. Do any contain glycerin to help moisturize the skin after the alcohol evaporates? Looking more into splashes than balms. Easier to find since I live out in the sticks and I tried Nivea years ago and didn't care for it too much. I was allergic to something in it, even the sensitive version.
