Like decent aftershave.
Aftershave should smell fresh and exciting, for about 3-1/2 minutes. Then it should go away and leave me alone. I don’t want to smell it any more after that.
The real reason I’m using aftershave is so my face won’t end up all bumpy or blistery with pimples. If I want perfume, I will buy it separately.
I used to use Sea Breeze. It is so menthol-riffic! If you want to know what it’s like to be truly alive, wash your scalp with the stuff. But keep it out of your eyes. But you need a cotton ball to properly apply it. You don’t want to get that stuff all over your hands!
Next I used Noxzema triple clean anti-blemish pads. It has salicylic acid to make your skin exfoliate! And it has that lovely Noczema smell. But sometimes you don’t want to exfoliate your newly-shaven face.
Witch Hazel is almost perfect. The smell is swell. It’s just a little watery. It doesn’t evaporate off your face fast enough. Maybe if there were witch hazel flavored rubbing alcohol…
So now I use Purell Hand Sanitizer w/Aloe. It smells good. It evaporates fast. It’s got Vitamin E! And before you know it, it’s all gone. Off your face. It’s still in the bottle. But the odor fades, and your face just feels like face. And it just smells like face too.
I bet my face has fewer germs than your face. Especially viruses that cause cold and flu too!
