You're probably just irritating your skin, or maybe the shaving cream you use is making you break out.

At first I thought this thread was going to be about how you were going to SAVE a piece of a whitehead that you popped out.. and I was like ewwwww.....It seems like it was just a spelling error though so... Disappointment ensues :)

Anyway I have no answer to your question since I am a girl and I don't shave my face... However, I know that when I shave my legs I have to use moisturizing shaving cream or else my legs will get irritated white bumps on them.... so yeah.

I have the same problem - I have what looks like tiny white heads in the beard area. I asked the Dr. about this and they thought it was clogged pores or maybe milia. I do get milia from time to time when using a lot of sunscreen. Could be the shaving gel. I was hoping besides treating cystic acne it would have controlled milia better for me in the long run.
