Sensitive skin on face
« on: August 07, 2014, 02:30:03 PM »
I have very sensitive skin on my face. I use Gillette Fusion razor and Gillette sensitive skin shaving cream, but after I shave I get sore spots and it hurts/burns.

If I don't shave for about 4 days, then when I shave it does not hurt and there's minor irritation. But if I shave everyday or every other day, it feels so bad.


Any advice guys on making shaving on a daily basis less of an issue. Thanks for your support.

With a fusion, you're dragging 5 blades across your face - you might want to try a Mach3 - less blades = less skin/metal contact. 

If I use a cart, I use the 2 blade BIC's I find at the 99 cent store and I have no problems (and my skin is sensitive - mostly on my head).

Also, lighter pressure on the razor (let the razor do the work) and maybe a different cream (I would suggest something like T&H Ultimate Comfort)

Also, choose a different shave cream, like Cremo Cream or Pacific Shaving Cream.  You may even want to try a shaving oil.

I have the same problem, which is why I often can't shave everyday, whether it comes to my head or face. I have no real advice since I too have that problem, but you are not alone! When I had my goatee really long, it was always a pain trying to shave my neckline, and get it close and slick. When I had that look, I liked to keep my mustache shaved slick, and my neckline clean, but I usually had to wait a good 3 days for that and even then usually it was still just a bit sensitive to the shave. I don't think I will truly ever find a good solution for my face/neck. Which is why I try to keep a good goatee or beard, less to shave, haha!

Yeah, I really like the Pacific pre-shave oil and the Pacific shave cream in a tube.  They are my very favorites.  If I run out of those I use Magic shave oil and Proraso shave cream in a tube which I can get at my local Walmart.

Consider a safety razor.  They take some time to learn, and there is a period of experimenting to see what razor / blade combo works best, but I can now shave daily with no discomfort (to head, face, or wallet) using the safety razor.

Moisturizing will help a lot.
