I like the sting that comes from a good aftershave where it feels like I just fell face down into a snowdrift. Skin bracer seems to do the trick, but I'm wondering if anybody has any other favorites to get that ice cold burning sting after a good shave?

I can’t believe that any aftershave has more burn than Ogallala Bay Rum.  I love it.

Not sure if you want mentholated or alcoholic burn? If the latter, I nominate 4711 aftershave... It stings like a b*tch.

If the latter, cut to the chase and just use alcohol neat.

It’s just letting you know that you are alive.  Tongue

50/50 mix of 70%l Alcohol and hydrogen peroxide soaked in some All Spice and cinnamon sticks  would give a refreshing sting  and a nice scent.

Indeed! Vodka will work very well I'm sure.

Another good one is Floid Mentolado Vigoroso, superb face feel and long lasting menthol sensation however the scent is an acquired taste... sweet powdery musk I think (smells a bit like those "cough candy" sweets we used to buy as children.)

Cool.  Thinking probably both the menthol and alcohol burn is what I'm shooting for.

+1 This is the only aftershave I have (out of more than 100) that actually makes my face feel warm. I've got many that give a menthol freeze, with Chatillon Lux Colbeck and Tam Sauk at the top of the list.

Any of the Floid aftershaves, or their excellent Epsilon clones, will give you a good dose of alcohol and menthol.  The Epsilon are an excellent value.

Is the Epsilon Blue really the equal of Floid? Really?? Sold a bottle of Floid Blue and have regretted it every day since

This sounds interesting.  My wife has asthma, and certain scents will set her off.  I can't use anything with eucalyptus, which I enjoy, in it.  Same with bay rum.  The concentration of bay leaf bothers her.  So my bay rum soap I can only do on morning shaves since we won't be right next to each other all day.  But the cinnamon/All Spice scent would be doable.  I'll have to give this a try.  Thanks.

You'll have to try it and make up your own mind.  For me, they're close enough that if Floid Blue was currently available, I would not pay the premium for it.

I'm not saying it's the best lotion, but Myrsol Agua de Limón is pretty good menthol.
