Ive pretty much always avoided shaving with a razor - it leaves my face too tender afterwords, so I usually just trim with a hair clipper and keep the stuble/5oclock shadow look, and only did close shaves with a razor for special occasions. Now i just picked up a Philips electric razor to try out, so far no problems, my face still feels a little sensitive after but not too bad. Usually 2 days after shaving with a razor id get little red bumps around my neck, is there any way to avoid that sorta thing? Do you guys moisturize, or put alcohol or anything on your face after shaving ? It always has seemed like a bad idea to put anything on my face when its feeling so sensitive.. Any help is appretiated. You should never followup a shave (or ever, besides that) by putting any product that contains significant amounts of alcohol on your face. It ages you and reaps havoc on your face. If you get razor bumps/burns on your face, after you shave spray some facial thermal spa water on your face. Vichy is what I use. It helps heal the skin a lot faster. I use the stuff all the time before applying any moisturizer. After you let the stuff dry a bit, apply whatever moisturizer you have (it's been scientifically prove that all skin moisturizers are, essentially, the same). Cheers!
