Why people love it
  • Very soothing and moisturizing
  • Refreshing scent that won't overpower even sensitive noses
  • Absorbs quickly without an oily residue

If your skin is already on the oily side, it will take some time for your face to absorb it. 


This is one of the few aftershave treatments available on the market that has no oils and no dyes. It's best for guys with naturally dry skin that need a bit regulated moisture.  

This reasonably priced post shave lotion works to heal the painful red bumps that can appear on dry skin during your shaving routine. It's also been shown to improve the manageability of your facial hair, and it is widely recommended by men that suffer from the driest of skins. Plus it's light and it never feels too heavy on your skin.

What Type of Aftershave Is This? Lotion 

What’s Inside? Yikes, the ingredient list for this Neutrogena aftershave lotion is a little confusing. There aren't any oils or dyes, but there are parabens and alcohol. It's still glycerine-based and there are plenty of natural extracts including soybean, witch hazel, and aloe. Really, it's a unique mix but perhaps that's why it works so well. 

What’s It Smell Like? There's a light, refreshing smell to this lotion. There isn't a seriously identifiable scent, but it is clean and manly. 

Will It Break the Bank? It's closer to the expensive side than we're totally comfortable with at roughly $6 per fluid ounce, so you must be sure it's something you truly want to invest in. 

What’s the Bottom Line? There are some downsides to this lotion, including the use of parabens and the cost. But there are upsides too. We enjoy the pleasant fragrance and the natural extracts. More than that, we're happy that it provides relief from all sorts of burns and pains, including sunburns. Because it's lightweight, it never feels like it's clogging your skin. We like it a lot, but have to put it at the bottom of the list due to the price and ingredients.
