Home > Pre/Aft Shave Reviews
Once you've found the right type of shaver, it's time to get yourself the right aftershave, or pre shave product.
And to be honest, I don't know what's easier to find. These days there's just as many types of shavers as there are types of "pre/after-shaves".
The days of simply splashing alcohol on your face after a shave are over.
There are lots of different lotions, gels and balms, and a good product is really meant to do several things.
Pre shaves are meant to improve the efficiency of your shaves, and also reduce irritation. They are designed to stiffen up your facial hair which makes it easier to shave off with electric shavers.
Some will also contain ingredients which help reduce irritation and soothe your skin.
These characteristics can really enhance some people's shaving experience, however they don't work for everyone. Some people don't need them, while others refuse to shave without them.
Hopefully these reviews will give you enough information to help you decide whether you should be using one or not.
I feel this product works the best at stiffening up your facial hair and making it stick out.
Anyone who has thick facial hair which lies against their face can benefit from Lectric Shave.
The only downfall is that it has a strong scent and a powerful sensation when you apply it to your face. This only lasts a few seconds but some people have complained that it's a bit unpleasant.
Because it's a pure liquid it is a little messy to apply, but if you can get past these small inconveniences I think you'll find it works the best. I feel it improves my shaves more than any other of these products, but that's just my opinion.
In terms of reducing irritation I didn't notice a huge difference. Overall if you're having trouble with facial hair sticking to your face, this is worth a try.
This is unique because it's a powder rather than a liquid or cream.
It comes in a stick form which looks like chalk. You rub it into your face and evenly spread it around with your fingers.
Compared to a pure liquid, it's much easier to apply, and it has a much softer scent. It smells a little bit like baby powder.
I would recommend this if you're very sensitive to strong scents. I personally don't feel it works as well as Lectric Shave, however it's a good alternative for those who dont' want an overpowering smell and sensation which comes with other liquids.
This is also different from the other products because it's a combination lotion.
It can be used before shaving, and after.
Out of all the products I've tested I would say this has the most neutral scent. It also is the easiest to apply and makes the least amount of mess.
I still don't think it works as well as a pure liquid at prepping your face for a shave, but I did enjoy the soothing properties it has when applying it after a shave.Related Articles
