I used to get razor burn pretty badly, then I started shaving in the shower. The always wet blade, wet face and the steam have made all the difference. I also switched to all natural shave lotions from Jason or Pacific Shaving Company (I like the Pacifc face soap, shave lotion, after shave moisturizer combo the best — Pacific Shaving).

Thanks Tim. I might need to find a good shower mirror now.

Depends on how severe you get/prone you are to them. TendSkin is a good place to start if you’ve got repeat issue—they’ve got post shave liquid, shave gel and a roll-on “system” that renders cotton puffs in to obsolescence. If that’s too rough on you, look for milder versions and ones that don’t have too many ingredients. For the pain? If it’s that bad, asprin and bit of usquebaugh should do the trick.

BTW – I was jesting… please don’t take asprin if your burn is bleeding…

I had a similar problem. The best method i found was shaving after a hot shower. It helps loosen the hair and makes it easier to shave. Also using shaving cream that contains things that will benefit your skin.

Thanks, I will try experimenting with different shaving creams.

I have found great results with different shave oils. They can be paired with a shave cream, or stand alone. I like
And with no shave cream, you actually SEE what you’re shaving;

I always shave in the shower and don’t use a mirror. I mean, you know where your face is right? lol, anyway, I use Nickel Super Clean Visage face scrub first, then use L’Occitane shave cream. I find it gives the most close, comfortable shave, without having to go back over areas or shave in the opposite direction. I use either a Fusion Pro Glide Power or the newer Gillette Mach for Sensitive skin. Glides across your face very easily. I follow up after by applying Fire Insurance after shave by Nickel. No bumps, bruises, cuts, nicks, or burns. My face has been baby-bottom smooth.

Wow I am impressed that you use so many Nickel products. They were an early mens grooming line from Paris and have kept a consistant following but many others have taken over in popularity. I think they lost good PR in the US so men dont hear about them as much as we used to. Well done!

Hey Ian! This works for me Organic Aloe Vera, trust me. I use this after I shave my legs or whenever I get those nasty red bumps.

Thanks, I will check it out Venittaya!
May 24, 2013 – 3:26 pm
Good call Venittaya. I’ve also used this and it has been GREAT and organic!

I’ve had razor burn bumps on my neck and could never get a really close shave on my neck without making matters worse. That is until I decided to try Shave Secret ( http://www.shavesecret.com ). You can find it at Walmart for around $5 and I would hope that everyone with or without razor burn problems gives this product a try. Best shave ever.
