Great stuff and still going strong after so many years. There are a lot of imitators but never duplicated. Contains alcohol,menthol and glycerin. Got mine at Walmart for under $5

I like Ice Blue and Ice Blue Sport. Nice scent and surprisingly kind to the skin.

Good stuff...been using it for 50 years. Same original formula still beats the newcomers.

One of my favorites as well in my rotation.

One of my favorite shave combos is Stirling cool soap and a splash of Aqua Velva ice blue.

I love the Spanish Aqua Velva Aftershave, because it offers so much value for your money Smile 200ML for the price you would pay for 100ML in Italy, France, Belgium etc.

But the scents seem all the same to me, so I don't feel like buying all these more expensive Europe variants.

Yep.
200mL of the version that is sold in Spain can be bought for as low as ~€4,5 or so at spanish supermarkets.
Can't beat that! Smile

The timing of your post is ironic because I just picked up a bottle of Ice Blue for $3 at the local Rite Aid pharmacy. I hadn't tried it in many years and was really happy with it for only $3. I can recall my dad wearing it when I was young. Felt great on my face! Thanks for your post. Cheers!

It is one of my favorites when using MWF. Just a nice combination.

I love this stuff, but I use it in a way that may be a little different from most.  I blend it with witch hazel and a couple of other "top secret" ingredients (OK, OK you twisted it out'a me - a squirt of peppermint oil, olive oil, and glycerin) to make what I find is the best after shave.  Smells great and conditions super well, assuming the oils are OK on your skin.  I can make a half gallon for $9.00.

Aqua Velva ... I mean they have to be doing something right if it's still on the market after all these years and is still going strong. Amazing! I remember this stuff from when I was a kid. My dad also used English Leather ... I still remember it with its huge wooden bottle top. I doubt there was a Christmas where my dad didn't get English Leather. Aqua Velva is pure Americana!

Question : Is there a difference between Williams' Aqua Velva and "Aqua Velva" (brand name -->picture by slantman) ?

Aqua Velva Ice Blue is excellent! I love menthol and recently added a few crystals to my latest bottle of Ice Blue and really love it. I'll be spiking up the menthol in my future bottles, too. Great product for just a few bucks. Cheers!
