I remember when I first started shaving, I just started using Gillette products purely because their adverts were so powerful.Anyway I thought I would start a topic for us to recommend pre and post shaving products...When it comes to razors, must say the Mach 3 is the best I have used so far in the Gilette range.I now use Lab Series shaving foam. I got this can as a freebie at a promo event. I will definitely get another when this runs out.I tend to use King of Shaves shaving gel when travelling. It is strange at first because it doesn't lather; yet it has a great cooling feeling.I choose after-shave balm or cream. Much kinder to the skin! Usually get one that matches the fragrance I am wearing that day.Any other recommendations or tips?

THE BAY AREA,
So here are my two cents on the quintessentially manly ritual of shaving:- I always shave after showering. That's when your skin is all moist and you are least prone to accidental cuts.- I use the Gillette Fusion razor. I believe its FIVE blades does a little better and lasts a bit longer than its predecessor cousin the Mach 3. - I've tried shave gels, but ultimately I go back to foam. Gel doesn't do it for me, frankly, because it just doesn't foam! - I've never used after-shave. I simply rinse and put on some face safe (non-pore-clogging) lotion and I'm ready for my day. Then again I'm not a cologne wearing guy either.
shaving is the bane of my existence; my skin always ends up looking terrible after i shave (my neck gets shaving rash and heaps of accidental cuts, and it seems to allow outbreaks of pimples) so i tend to have a hot shower after in an attempt to calm it down which helps a bit. although everyone always reccomends shaving AFTER a shower, but then i'd have to shower like twice, grr.

If it makes you feel any better, I still have VERY slow growing facial hair.I generally shave once every 7 - 10 days. I have always been like that.Look on the bright side: you won't have to spend so much on replacing all those expensive shaving supplies!
1. Agreed. Bristles are softened and skin pores are opened.2. Really? I thought it a fancy marketing gimmick. I would like to give this one a try, but then I don't want to have to replace my existing handle.... hope a Mach 3 handle fits a Fusion razor. Then I may take the plunge!
I know my close friend David uses a Braun Series 7 760cc foil shaver. Its really fancy compared to the cheap one use shavers I use. Then he uses plain store bought lotion to slap on afterward. As for me..since I'm not one to be fancy when it comes to removal of body hair, I just buy the 10 pack, 3 blade Bic shavers. We both use a oil free lather..him some off brand, for myself I use Skintimate or cheap lotion. After I slap on some sented lotion from bath and body works.I hope more girls answer this...I don't want look weird.
I have no idea if it works for guys, but for girls, the best way to avoid ingrown hairs (shaving rash) is to exfoliate first and moisturise after.
Spot on. (Pardon the pun....)
