Aftershave: Why and how to use it

Using a good aftershave is the key to having smooth and soft skin. One thing is clear: for a man, the real shaving experience doesn't end with the last stroke of the razor, but with the use of aftershave!

Which aftershave product to use?

Choosing which type of aftershave to use depends on your personal preferences and the characteristics of your skin.

Post-shave lotion or balm? You now have an important choice to make. We at Bulligans have already taken it and we have chosen the conditioner!

But let's analyze together why we chose the balm at the expense of the lotion.

First of all, how and when to use the aftershave cream?

Take a small amount of the balm on your hand

Gently rub it on your face from bottom to top

Make sure you have covered all areas of your face

If you have sensitive or dry skin, the best choice is balm; this is because an aftershave lotion has alcohol as an ingredient, which on the one hand helps to disinfect and refresh the skin, but on the other hand it could irritate the face much more easily.

Applying a good aftershave is very important, but it shouldn't be the only habit. For this reason, we have prepared some tips for you to follow in order to have the perfect after-shave routine.

1 Choose the best shaving products

If you have sensitive skin, choose gels and razors made especially for it, as the after-shave routine can be ruined by irritated skin.

2 Wash your face

Rinse off any gel residue on your face with warm water.

Take your time until you're sure you've removed all the excess gel, and then move on to the next step in your post-shave routine.

3 Cold treatment

Now that your face is clean what's the next step?

Rinse your face again, but this time with cold water.

Besides getting a refreshing sensation, this step is important for two reasons:

  • It helps you close the pores on your skin
  • Gives relief for any cuts

4 Dry the skin

After moisturizing your skin with cold water, pat your face dry with a clean towel

5 Apply a Bulliganscollections aftershave product
