Finding the best razor for men was not an easy task for me. I have naturally very sensitive skin which makes me get these severe breakouts from razors every single time I shave. Everyone who has had razor bumps on their face knows that they are painful, irritating, itchy, and just ugly. When I had them my self-esteem was lowered and I definitely was not as confident as my normal self. I wish I had an article that told me what I could do to get rid of my annoying problem when I was having it. Unfortunately, everything I found on the subject was mainly promoting bad quality products which I tried and did nothing for me.
I tried at least a dozen products while trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t. I wasted a ton of money on stuff that didn’t work. I bought an electric razor for about one hundred dollars that was marketed for people with sensitive skin. Needless to say it didn’t work for me. I think the reason is that besides my skin being very sensitive, my hair is also curly, coarse, and thick. The electric razor just wasn’t sharp enough for me to use without going over the same spots on my face ten times. I reasoned that I was cursed to live with this for the rest of my life, deducting that maybe I killed a unicorn in my past life and God was punishing me.
After a ton of money wasted, with plenty of disgusting red bumps on my face to prove it, I finally found a the best razor for men that worked well and was a happy medium between getting all the hair on my face off and not irritating my skin. The razor is called Gillette Fusion Proglide and is in my opinion the best razor for men on the market. It is very high quality and has very sharp blades which allow for a close, bump free shave. Admittedly, it is on the pricey side. Not the razor itself, but the replacement blades are what kill you. Despite the price the razor is definitely worth not spending a ton of money on other bad quality products.
I combined using new razor this with a GREAT product I found when I was searching for an after shave lotion for my face. See, my face is not only very sensitive, but it also gets really dry, especially in the winter. I found a product that has moisturizers in it and also does a great job getting rid of bumps. The product is called Bump Patrol Maximum Strength. It’s a good product and I tried the Original Strength version, only because it was the only one they had in CVS. It might work for some people, but just didn’t cut it for me.
Combine these two products with a good quality shave gel and you’ll get a great shave. For the Shaving gel I use one of the ones that Bump Patrol uses also. It’s good because it has aloe in it and makes the razor glide on your face better. I know I sound like a spokesperson for their company but they really are the best when it comes to getting rid of razor bumps.
Using these three products got rid of my razor burn completely. I don’t have to deal with the pain of them anymore and the inconvenience they cause. No more staying in on the weekend because my neck is red and gross looking. I hope you try them out if you’re having the same problems as me. If you liked them, drop me a comment. Thanks for reading.
