You do know you can purchase menthol crystals, you can add to anything, right? I think I bought 4 oz for 5 bucks or less. Just a couple of the crystals is MORE than enough for a 100ml bottle of aftershave, and that is like a sprinkle of salt out of a salt shaker amount, if that makes sense lol

I recently wrote a blog about the benefits of a pre-shave oil. My consensus...pre-shave oils are nice and offer you a way to be a little more luxurious. If you get in-grown hairs often, razor burn, or feel a lot of irritation when you shave, it might be time to invest in a solid pre-shave oil. In the end, a pre-shave oil lubricates your facial hair and preps your skin so it is moisturized and ready to be shaved. While it might allow you to get a closer shave with less irritation, you might also just want to invest in a better shave soap or get a new razor. However, if you want the extra luxury and you have the $$, why not invest in a new product!
