Aftershave Lotion (Splash)

Per Page
An aftershave lotion, also known as aftershave splash, is a scented liquid which soothes the skin after a shave. While the name may seem to suggest otherwise, an Aftershave Lotion is actually a clear fluid and not a cream or gel.

Aside from smelling great, aftershave also contains active ingredients that help to prevent irritation and inflammation in the skin after shaving. This includes alcohol, citrate, with hazel and menthol, but the ingredients can vary from product to product. There are also aftershaves without fragrance available.
So what is the difference between Eau de Toilette, cologne and aftershave? Aftershave lotions and splash have a lower concentration of pure perfume than an Eau de Toilette, so if you are looking for a fragrance that will last for more than a few hours you are better off using an EDT or cologne. Eau de Toilettes and colognes are purely fragrances and should never be used on your face after shaving as they do not contain anti-inflammatory ingredients. The somewhat confusing practice of referring to the regular liquid aftershave as aftershave lotion comes from France. If you are looking for a more lotion-like or creamy aftershave, an Aftershave Balm or Aftershave Gel is the product for you. Some of the most well-known and popular aftershave lotions include Brut, Aqua Di Parma and Old Spice.

How to use an aftershave lotion or splash:
- Wash your face with water after shaving.
- Pour a small amount of aftershave in your hands and apply to the face.
- Work the liquid into your skin and leave to dry.
