Over the past year I have gone from the regular day to day Gillette razor to a strait razor and finally have an old school safety razor that I now use. Because you can easily nick yourself with the safety razor and of course with the strait razor, I wanted something that was soothing and yet also not burn. I got the post-shave repair in one of my boxes and it has been a Godsend. It feels good and does not sting. It evaporates after about a minute and then I use some face cream. I have had very little redness, ingrown hairs, or bumps. I totally recommend adding this product in your shave regiment.
