Neutrogena Razor Defense Post Shave Lotion - The Best After Shave I Ever Used

Having been using Neutrogena Men Age Fighter Face Moisturizer SPF 15 for a short while, I decided to try their after shave. Although the aforementioned moisturizer worked as an aftershave as well, I suspected I could get better results from a dedicated after shave. Plus the after shave is cheaper. I bought the Neutrogena Razor Defense Post Shave Lotion and have been using it since.


The Neutrogena Razor Defense Post Shave Lotion comes in a convenient plastic tube of the same black design as the other "Neutrogena for men" cosmetics, albeit slightly lighter in the shade of black. The tube not round in cross-section and is very still stable when placed vertically. The lotion comes out easily when the tube is squeezed.


The consistency of the lotion is more thin than that of the Neutrogena Triple Protect Face Lotion for Men SPF 20, but a little thicker than the Neutrogena Men Age Fighter Face Moisturizer SPF 15. It is about average comparing to other after shave lotions I used. It is easy to spread.

The lotion soothes the skin after shaving very well and seems to reduce irritation significantly. I prefer it to any other after shave lotion I used (and I have used quite a few).

It also moisturizes very well. One thing it doesn't do, comparing to the aforementioned two other Neutrogena products is have any sun protection. But since I shave either before going to bed or before going to work, where I sit in the office, this is not a concern.

I also use it as a general moisturizer on the areas shaved recently. Example: I shave my face at night, use this after shave lotion, then use it again when I get up in the morning. Using it regularly seems to even make it easier to shave, as if the skin gets conditioned to the blade. And it smells really good too.

Pros: Soothes, moisturizes, reduces irritation, makes skin smoother and softer, low price
Cons: No sun protection

Bottom Line

The Neutrogena Razor Defense Post Shave Lotion is an excellent after shave lotion and a general moisturizer. It soothes the shaved skin, reduces irritation and provides moisture to dry skin. It is rather inexpensive and I highly recommend it. But if you want something that also features sun protection and makes your skin healthier, try  Neutrogena Men Age Fighter Face Moisturizer SPF 15.
