I shave daily and haven't had any razor burn since I started using olive oil on my scalp before applying some shaving gel.  I don't know why this works but I can't complain.  I get good shaves every time.  As for the shine, I don't really care if it shines or not.

I only get razor burn if a repeatedly shave the same area trying to get it perfectly smooth.  I have learned to not do that over time, some areas just will not be perfectly smooth.  Daily shaving for me is no problem.

Thatís a great trick. Iíll try olive oil next time when i run out of my King of Shave oil. Itís getting hard to find.  But yes, about 6 to 8 drops of oil on the dome with shaving gel on top of that makes for a perfect shave. Itís just about eliminated all razor burn. 

I donít fuss as much about getting that perfect shave. I have a pesky spot thatís tough to get smooth. But too my swipes with the razor will create a burn regardless of what you apply.

As for a shine, i use aloe gel. I do like a nicely buffed, shiny dome for weekends or after work. During the day, matte is fine, and I donít apply anything other than a moisturizer.
