BEST VALUE FOR THE MONEY:
Mennen Afta Pre-Electric Shaving Lotion
This two-pack of Mennen Afta lotion is priced to go. At only about five bucks a pop this is right near the bottom of the price range. This also means that it will appeal to budget-conscious people who may also be using electric razors from the lower end as well. It’s ironic, but if you have a cheap razor I’d actually recommend that you get a better quality lotion to compensate for it. If you had a really good razor you could get away with a basic or even no lotion at all.
In any case, my expectation of this lotion is going to be a bit higher since it probably has to make up for a razor that’s not the best in town.
Mennen says that this lotion has a very creamy texture, akin to traditional shaving cream. However, it has been formulated so that it doesn’t clog your electric razor, which is a problem we sometimes get with traditional shaving cream.
The lotion contains skin conditioner, but lacks substances that sometimes causes rashes or other irritations. It also has no oil, which is sometimes also a problem for some people.
In general people are pretty positive about this pre-electric lotion. Many people report using this lotion for years with no skin issues and good performance.
It’s not all good though – it seems that in looking for alternatives to some of the mainstream chemicals that you won’t find here, they decided to use something with a weird smell. Most people don’t have anything bad to say in this regard, but it seems that the smell just doesn’t work for a minority of buyers.
Luckily this stuff is so cheap that you won’t lose much buying a bottle and smelling it for yourself. Chances are you’ll find a new cheap champion on your hands.
