You might wonder, what makes an aftershave different from a facial moisturizer? The answer- antiseptic + astringent properties. The antiseptic properties are necessary to prevent any infection, and the astringent properties help calm the irritation that may result from shaving. This DIY aftershave has both antiseptic and astringent properties thanks to the cedarwood essential oil. So this is a DIY Father’s Day gift that dad can really use!
If you wanted to add something to your DIY aftershave gift, an old-fashioned badger hair brush shaving kit would be a very classy addition!
