Men can begin shaving their faces as young as 15 years-old. If their fathers were around, they were likely instructed to use aftershave. Today, views on aftershave have shifted – what was once a mandate is now a soft suggestion. Preference aside, aftershave is your friend. It prevents micro-cuts from getting infected, limits irritation, and hydrates your skin. Given all the pros, why would you skip a process that takes 20 seconds max?

The market has moved away from alcohol-based products, which traditionally earned aftershave the reputation that it should sting. In 2020, we’re more conscientious about what we put on our skin.

Thankfully, GQ just dropped a list of the best aftershaves. Here are the affordable, choice cuts:
