I picked up a bottle of this aftershave at Dollar General yesterday and even at $1.75 it was a waste of money. Pacific Rush is loaded with menthol but the smell is awful. I have no clue why anybody would like it but to each their own.

A while back I picked up two Barbasol bottles from Dollar General, one Pacific Rush and one Brisk. I tried the Brisk first and did not enjoy the scent at all. It even left a film on my skin... very odd for a splash. I tried it once more then ended up dumping the bottle. It may just have been a bad batch, but I haven't opened the Pacific Rush bottle yet.

I like the Pacific Rush A/S. My bride says it smells good on me but doesn't last long. Great cooling from the menthol as well. It's a summer time favorite for me

As always YMMV but I actually like the scent and think It's a great value at $1.75.

Didn't work for me, as I thought it smelled like mouthwash, so in the bin it went. I do like the balm though.

I have a friend back in Texas that actually uses Listerine Mint as an after shave.

I'd imagine that would burn quite a bit.

Agreed! I smelled some of this in the bottle and picked it up. About 15 seconds after applying I knew I made a mistake. I washed and washed my face but could not get the scent off me.

I like the scent of both the splash and balm.. Spike both of them with menthol crystals for a bigger RUSH!

I picked it up also in a dollar store, could not resist the price.

I'm happy with it, specially in my morning shaves followed by Men-u white, it is a nice booster and the balm tames the scent.

geez, that stuff is used for everything!

I've got a friend who drinks it when he has a sinus cold to basically make himself throw up all of the crap in his chest.

Hmmm ... I've always liked Pacific Rush, to the point that I bought the balm as well. I've always felt it was a fairly short lived menthol/aquatic scent.

I don't claim to use it much, but when I want some face freeze I reach for it.

I love the stuff. It's my go to AS. Nice aquatic scent...with sort of a watermelon note....lots of menthol, glycerin skin care. Inexpensive.

What's not to like? It's a winner in my book.
