I got some Osage Rub and I don't really like the smell. And would like your opinions on a FREEZING yet affordable menthol aftershave?

Fine Snake bite is a good one! You can also make your own with some witch hazel and menthol crystals.

Buy a few oz of menthol crystals and make any aftershave you use cold if you like!  Krampert's Frostbite if you're not into DIY though haha

+1 if you are looking for economical  menthol A/S, without stirring it in yourself.  Kramperts runs $18 a bottle before shipping, that's 9 times more expensive, heck the Pacific Rush costs less than the shipping will.

I'm not sure what you categorize as being cheap so ymmv but I'm with a couple of the others, Kramperts Frostbite is super cold and quality is top notch..!! I keep a few bottles on hand.. Great performance IMO.  I'll add that a little goes a long way.  Based on my usage one bottle would EASILY last two months.  If you shave seven days a week and use a 30 day calendar thats 3 cents a shave.. So pretty cheap on a per shave base..

Frostbite is great and leaves my skin feeling very nice indeed. As Nevada Red said, a little goes a long way.

I have both snakebite and frostbite, enjoy them both, but the skincare qualities of frostbite are superior.  If I could only choose one, it would be frostbite.

Thanks for the advice guys. How to these compare with Osage Rub as far a cooling sensation? I hate the smell but love the cooling sensation.

Anything "Glacial" by Stirling will freeze out the Osage Rub, and costs about $12.00.

In my experience the Osage Rub (I like the smell though, and it dissipates quickly anyway) is out frozen only slightly by either Alcolado Glacial or the Krampert's  Frostbite, and when I use menthol in the summer there's no discernible difference in other properties.  Of just those three, Alcolado Glacial has Menthol as the #2 ingredient, Osage has it third, while the Frostbite has either none (West Coast Shaving description) or ? as my bottle doesn't have a list of ingredients printed on it.

Not the coldest, and not a budget aftershave, but

Folsom and Co. Shady past is fantastic. It has a beautiful scent and a very nice menthol kick.
