Shaving Lotions ~ Aftershaves and colognes.
What is the difference between aftershave and cologne is one of the questions we get asked here at Beards & Baldies.
Let’s start with aftershave. Aftershave is generally used for exactly what the name implies… after shaving, the scent content is less than a cologne so therefore will not last quite as long, approximately 1-2%. But on the flip side is made up of vital ingredients to calm and heal the skin from the tiny razor nicks that are so small that often do not even bleed. Can also be used as a cologne.
A cologne has a higher scent content than an aftershave (typically 2-5%) this enables the fragrance to last slightly longer than aftershave but doesn’t have the same healing properties, we would not recommend using a cologne as an aftershave for this reason but definitely as a day to day user after an aftershave balm, this way you can let the balm do the healing and the cologne do the rest.
Pre shave oils.
Beards & Baldies pre-shave oils are a fantastic way to start your shave, containing only the finest ingredients and designed to moisturise the skin before applying our soap or cream. Pre-shave oil also lifts the hair follicles ready to shave whilst applying a smooth layer between blade and skin, to generate a smooth glide and eliminate tugging. Apply one of our pre-shave oils before each wet shave to achieve a true and traditional shaving experience.
