Aftershave is a Lotion, Gel, Balm, or liquid used mainly by men after they have finished shaving. It may contain an Antiseptic agent such as Alcohol to prevent infection from cuts as well as numb damaged skin, a Perfume to enhance scent, and a Mositurizer to soften the Skin. An alcohol-based, fragrance-free Astringent can be used as an aftershave. It is said that the alcohol in the aftershave closes pores in the skin and prevents irritation ("Razor Burn").
