LGBT Shaving question? I have super sensitive skin.

    What do you all reccomend for shaving your face. Every time I shave it tears me up so bad. Razor burn, bumps, cuts, etc. I have started a new routine for shaving. I start out by using a moisturiser on my face and neck before shaving and the I use gillette shave gell as it is very thick and remains a gell and does not foam up. This helps but is there any really good products out there that might be beneficial to me? I cannot stand having facial hair so I shave daily and need some relief.

    what kind of razor are you using? The triple blade ones, while giving a good shave, rip apart my face and are a bit of an overkill, pardon the pun.

    many years of pickin at my zits gave me a face that could withstand the strongest of sandstorms.....

    ...actually i find the triple bladed razors work better for me than the single blade ones. Mach 3 Turbo Red > *

    Unfortunately, I use a beard trimmer and keep a 5'oclock shadow all the time. If I shave smooth, whether it's electric or not, my face ends up looking like a strawberry. :hs:

    Being a marine I have to shave every day.
    I DRY shave :big grin:
    But I would recommend this product I saw that a lot of guys I see around here say they use...

    however..i am not a guy and don't shave my face...i would recomend(from a woman's thought) to use a triple blade razor(gillete mach 3..even i use this razor to shave my legs ;) ) and use a nice thicky/foamy shave cream/gel.
    and if you still have a hard time...maybe see a dermotolagist to see if she can give you something to help with the sensitivity!

    shave in the shower, I personally love the Mach 3 razor....always shave with warm water and have your face warm as well...I shave with the grain, then go back against the grain and I haven't had a pimple since I was in Highschool....

    A friend had the same problem. Broke out something terrible when he shaved. And being queer, we couldn't have him losing HOTness points, so we tested the market for various products. Nair and the like.... Eventually, he found something that he loved... Magic Shaving Cream. It comes with a plastic applicator. You put it on as if if were shaving cream, and use the applicator thingy like a razor. The hair just goes away, and no bumps! The shit stinks, but it doesn't get into the skin or anything, so it's all cool.

    He lives by that shit now. If I ever had to shave, I'd use it.

    also it's a tip for shaving your "lower regions" but i don't see why it would't work on your face also... anyway, if you use a little lemon juice after you shave, it helps the skin to not become irritated.

    i don't becuase i don't shave my face. but i was trying to speak in general since it was a GUY that was asking and a GUY that was laughing...

    like i said the tip was for shaving your bikini line but i didn't see why it couldn't be used on a guys face...

    hell, nevermind forget i said anything...
