  The tangy tingling sensation it causes after being splashed on is one
  way to describe an aftershave. Most aftershaves act as astringents;
  they help firm skin tone and close skin pores when applied
  immediately after shaving. Many aftershaves contain alcohol, which
  possesses antibacterial abilities, helping to prevent infections of
  knicks or shaving cuts. It also should contain glycerine and/or other
  ingredients known to be beneficial to skin care. Glycerine will help
  counter the drying effects on the skin, and the chafing and
  irritation that can develop with dry skin.
  
  *Most drug stores contain all of the above tinctures and oils. Herb
  and health food shops carry the essential oils.
  
  DaisyLin's comments: Here are some aftershave recipes that I have
  used. My ex liked the lime one best. They are really good. I still
  make it for him once in a while. And you can get neat bottles at a
  healthfood or herb store, or some specialty stores...and the
  essential oils can be found at a health food/herb store, and the
  tinctures etc can be found at some pharmacies, I suggest calling
  around. I found it at three old type pharmacies. Like Rexall.
