Best Post-Shave Face Cream for Men

01/2020 to 12/2020


The 90-day average price for a 4-pack as of 8/31/2020 on Amazon is $25.97, according to data from Keepa. Product prices and availability are accurate as of the date/time indicated and are subject to change.


There are like five different listings for this bottle on Amazon in various quantities so be careful to make sure you don’t overpay. Anything more than $6-7/bottle (each bottle is 1.7 Fl Oz or 50mL) is too much. So be aware. These don’t last more than a month with daily use, so it’s worth purchasing a 2 or 4-pack.

keep in mind

  • For such a great product, this honestly might be one of the worst designed bottles ever made. For some reason J&J made the bottom (where the cap is) rounded. Which makes it impossible to stand the bottle up.
  • The bottle also isn’t very ergonomic so getting the last few squirts out of the bottle takes a little bit of effort


I’ve always had fairly sensitive skin which can be prone to ingrown hairs and occasional breakouts after shaving. Discovering this lotion almost five years ago has been a life saver for me.


Neutrogena’s Triple Protect Daily Face Lotion checks off all the things I look for in a good post-shave balm:

  1. Smells great
  2. Soothes my face
  3. Absorbs quickly
  4. Inexpensive
  5. Travel size
  6. Contains SPF


The last one is key and is the feature that you do not often find in most post-shave balms (particularly one that absorbs this quickly). We all really should be using SPF daily, in the summer or winter months, to protect our face from sun damage. This lotion helps you conveniently do that while also soothing any possible razor irritation.


The only puzzling part of this lotion is how poorly designed the bottle is. For some reason, J&J decided to give this a rounded base for the cap. Therefore, it is impossible to stand this thing up straight. In all the years I’ve used this lotion, they have yet to change the design. It’s a minor inconvenience which is overshadowed by all the positives, including a relatively inexpensive price tag for a bottle that can last months. While having tested several different types of balms, none provide the same all-in package we see from Neutrogena’s Triple Protect. I’ve used this product for over 6 years now and I expect to be using it for years to come.
