My husband and I both like strong smell of aftershaves. Your recipe seems quite interesting and this concept of home made aftershave is really new to me. I never heard it before. But I doubt how much powerful its fragrance would be. Can you just help me to know?

Homemade aftershave? Wow! It’s a great idea to make it from bottom of my heart and gift it to my husband in this Valentine’s Day. He would be amazed.

As our life is becoming faster, so very few of us have enough time to make these packs at home; and another reason is that, we are more dependent on readymade easily available market products than home-made stuffs.

If you need something best, then you should spare some times to get it…after all nothing comes in free. In case of natural products, less cost more time is equal to beautiful skin.
