    cold water, then toner, let it set for a little bit and then moisturizer right before i leave the house. if you are afraid of clogging your pores with something heavy, try a toner - they are extremely light and actually help your skin with acne/bumps.

    I use an alum block, then rinse with cold water and apply Cornhusker's Lotion

    After my hot shower, in which I exfoliate my skin with Biotherm Homme Exfoliating Gel on alternating days, I prepare my soap: water and a soap from a Dutch company called De Vergulde Hand. I then apply the soap with a Gilette goldcolored brush and shave with the accompanying goldcolored razor. After that, I use an aftershave balsem - preferrebly with little or no alcohol as Pat Bateman suggested, althought at the moment I use Nivea For Men which does leave me with a nice fresh feeling. Finally I apply a moisturizer, also from Biotherm Homme, and brush my teeth.

    There is an idea of a.. [​IMG]

    after cold application, use witch hazel. It is natural and will tighten those pores and promote skin radiance. It's old style and effective.

    Isn't the alum block just to stop bleeding? Do you feel it helps even if you didn't cut yourself?

    After shaving I just use Tea Tree Oil Face Cream. I think it smells good and it keeps your complexion top notch.

    I must say im a bit dissapointed with the electric razor.. it did a good job shaving, but now 3 days later, the hair growing back hurts my neck just as much as when i do it with a razor.. i get little red zits along my neck and painful prickly hairs..

    i hate shaving!
