what is the point of aftershave?

What do you want it to do? There are a zillion aftershave products out there. In no particular order, you might like:

  • Antiseptic
  • Soothing
  • Moisturizing
  • Cooling
  • Toning
  • etc....
oh, i always thought it only served one purpose heh

whats the difference between soothing and cooling?

is there such a thing as a moisturizing, sunscreen, soothing, cooling, (maybe either soothing or cooling) aftershave?
Soothing = combats razor burn.
Cooling = provides a cooling sensation when applied. May or may not be soothing.

Aftershaves are very personal; you'll have to find what works for you. Baxters balm is a good choice if you like cooling sensations. There are many other good ones out there like C&E, Harris, L'Occitane.... and don't even get me started on the traditional alcohol-based varieties.
i see

is there an aftershave that combines moisturizing, sunscreen, and soothing/cooling all in one?

i apply a moisturize and sunscreen to my face everyday and if they're all combined in one product that would save so much time

I'Ve always been an Old Spice Man myself!!

There is a thread you might find useful on this site. Look in the thread list for: Skin, Body & Hair Care.

Hope this helps!
