Since I've never used a true aftershave and only various skin treatment stuff that wasn't labelled as being aftershave, I have a question regarding aftershave:

How long should a standard-sized bottle of aftershave splash (100 ml) last, if used every day, on the face and on the head, after a shave?

I'm thinking of ordering a two year supply of aftershave in one go as I hate having to restock up on stuff as soon as I run out. How much aftershave would you face and head-shavers have to buy in order to have, roughly, a two year supply?

Including the head too, I would say about 400 ml per year, but that's a Wrigley Field guess.

Which AS are you considering?

I shave everyday and am pretty generous with the splash. I like the disinfectant properties and get my face pretty wet and let it dry. A 100 ml bottle lasts me about 30-45 days.

Looking at other replies, and going on my own experience, I think people use in the range 1.5 ml (careful) - 3.5 ml (generous) per shave. That will give you between 67 and 29 days per 100 ml bottle.

My guess would be at least 400ml but could be as much as 800ml. I think Johnny said a 400ml bottle of Floid Blue A/S lasts him 6 months with everyday use but that's not including head. I hope I remember the figure coorectly maybe Johnny will chime in.

If I used it everyday that would be correct. I am not stingy when it comes to applying after shave.

I would never purchase anything in bulk until I tried it. With that that said, I'm a head shaver, but switch between 4 different brands, so it's pretty hard to say how long a single 100ml bottle will last. I use Proraso most of the time and honestly never paid much attention to how long a bottle lasts me. Maybe 3 months... I don't bathe in it, so that's a variable to consider as some people do. LOL

I woudn't commit to any large bottle A/S's unless I loved it. On a side, most A/S's don't come in barber bottles.
