  1. Is there even such a thing with those two combined? I have such dry & irritated skin, and it becomes very dry & flaky right after I've shaved. I can literally scrape all the dead skin away, but it becomes a vicious cycle. ......... On a sidenote - is there a UK product that answers to Aveeno shaving gel?
  2. Do you guys shave before cleansing, at the beginning of the regimen (as Dan does)? I haven't started a regimen yet, but my concern is that my skin will get irritated badly if I shave, cleanse, then add BP. Is there any other better time to shave? And is it okay to use a normal shaving gel? Thanks EDIT: I'm also thinking I will just use a normal shaving gel (say, Gillette sensitive) rather than a cleanser to shave with. If I cleanse my skin, including the shaving area straight after, will I b
  3. Do any guys here use Gillette shaving gels? (the ones that produce lather when you rub them onto your face) I think they are crappy products. I've used the "Moisturizing" variety for a few months and I think it causes my face to breakout. Does anybody else feel the same?
  4. Hello ALL! Quick Note: I apologize for the length, please do not let it steer you away, I truly believe and hope my story and findings could help you! I would like to start by saying thank you to Dan for creating this website. I cannot thank him and everyone else on here enough for posting your help, insight and stories. Even though I am new to posting I have fallowed this sight for a few years and I have learned a lot. Background I am 22 years old and I have suffered from mild t
  5. I have tried using dans cleanser with three pumps it works ok but its not thick and i cant get a good lather to shave.... Do you guys know any shaving gels or shaving creams that are non comodegenic that you can buy at local drug stores or grocrey stores ?

    I've been doing this for the past week and I've had good results from it so far so thought I'd share it with everyone and see what you all think. After wet shaving, I wash any excess shaving gel from my face from areas that aren't being shaved with warm water and then use cold water to close the pores (or make them smaller or whatever) and then I get an ice cube and roll it around my whole face until it melts away. This really helps with inflammation and if you have any small bumps coming up,
  7. has anyone used cetaphil gentle cleanser as a shaving gel.??
  8. So I have been an acne sufferer since the age of about 13. I am now 21. I know I haven't dealt with this confidence-killing problem as long as many others on here who have had it for 15+ years. Most importantly, though, I know what it's like to battle acne successfully. I had been on SO many other acne treatments/prescriptions before the regimen such as: 1) Doxycycline 2) Minocycline 3) Adoxa 4) Solodyn 5) Retin-A Micro 6) NeoBenz-Micro 7) Clindamycin My problem was I would just quit the anti
  9. I've struggled with acne for 7 years now, including a very stubborn variety where i shave. I've tried so many creams gels lotions razors electric razors etc and finally found a great combo. I stiil get bad forehead and upper cheek acne, but where i shave on my face and neck i rarely get anything now. heres what i use: 1. King of Shaves For Men K-Series AlphaGel Shaving Gel, Active Skin Cleansing- it has t tree oil, dds?, aloe, green t, triclosan, vitamin e. it does contain Sodium Laureth Sulfat

    I wasn't too sure where to post this, so I settled for here. If it's wrong, I do apologise and feel free to move it to the correct forum or sub-forum. I just wanted to ask a few things about shaving; you see, it's always been a problem for me, the past 2 years or so... I've always told myself I'm doing it wrong, which is most likely the problem here. I shave about once every 2-4 days (so it's not everyday), yet when I do shave, I always seem to get these irritating red spots on my neck (usually
  11. I've been washing my face for years, but after reading this site I feel like I"ve been doing it wrong. I usually get my face pretty wet with hot water, then I lather up with a Purpose bar and usually rub it in my face for a good minute. Sometimes I'll let the soap just sit on my face for another minute before rinsing it off. Is this wrong? How long should it take me to wash my face? Does it matter if I use hot or cold water? Slightly unrelated, but do I need to be washing my face before AND
  12. Hey everyone, this is my first post as have just registered. Have been a fan of the site for a while now and until recently am thinking about giving this regimen a go! Have suffered from mild acne for around 4 years now and have tried a range of things. 1. Was on doxycycline for a few months but that only seemed to clear my forehead and back which is alot better 2. After this I tried a couple of homeopathy remedies that worked but after a couple of months my acne came back! 3. Have recently
  13. I am looking for a new shave gel that will not break me out, hopefully. I am currently trying to pick between 3 but would like anybody else's comments and opinions on which ones to use. The 3 I am trying to decide between are: Edge Advanced Senstive Skin (with Aloe) Ingredients: Deionized Water, Palmitic Acid, Triethanolamine, Stearic Acid, Isopentane, Sunflower Oil Monoglycerides, Sorbitol, Aloe Barbadensis Gel (Aloe Vera Gel), Fragrance, PVP, Isobutane, PEG 90M, FD&C Blue 1 (not sure a

    Right, I'm going to start a log. After observing on the forum for a couple of months I think its time to join properly. History I has severe acne from about 14 onwards especially my forehead. At 16 I went on Accutane for a few months at a relativly low dose. Got rid of my spots and I just had scars on my forehead really. I am now 23 and I get acne moderatly badly but mainly on my cheeks and chin. Every month or two I get a massive cyst which is a megapain and I have a number of scars on my che
  15. Think this is ok to use to shave my face with and avoiding acne (currently have very little - like 3 bumps a week if that). I just don't want any irritation or clogged pores, if anybody has used this or has any incite please share. Nivea For Men Sensitive Shaving Gel * Specially formulated for Sensitive Skin * Unscented, free of dyes * Moisturizer Enriched * Dermatologically Tested Ingredients: Water, Palmitic Acid, Triethanolamine, Oleth-20, Isopentane, Sorbitol, Mineral Oi
  16. Well found this website yesterday and started straight away the next day. I have been using tea tree oil facial wash and tea tree oil moisturiser for the last months and they have worked wonders on my skin, well when I say that I mean they improoved it a lot but didnt stop spots. I have no added Oxy On the Spot to my regime and am making sure to be careful with my skin. Atm my forehead and both cheeks are patchy, nothing compared to others but 1 spot is more than enough. I started this morning
  17. If you shave with a razor and shaving gel and all that then do you need to exfoliate still. Shaving is a form of exfoliation and i would think that if you shaved then used an exfoliant your skin would become too irritated and dry. SO for the guys who shave here, is shaving our way of exfoliating???DO we REALLLLLY need to exfoliate any more??? hmmmmmmm
  18. (apologies if wrong forum area - i'm not sure) Male, caucasian, pale oily skin, rapid facial hair growth, early 30's, acne since mid-teens. I've had moderate to mild acne for the past 15 years with irregular bad outbreaks. Since using Retin-A for 18 months, i've had flakey skin too. Tried every over-the-counter and prescribed solution, diet changes, body treatments, etc. etc. After reading this forum last week, i've finally solved with with ZERO $$$ and effort. I'm fond of daily hot showers,
  19. Does anyone know any oil free shaving gels as i dont like shaving with cleansing bars.I find the cleansing bars dont give a good razor glide like shaving gels even with a good lather any suggestions.ps im from Ireland
  20. This is going to be long, but like Dan I think the details are important. Products used are: Brevoxyl 4% Panoxy wash 10% BP Cetaphil cleanser Nivea oil control shaving foam. Morning: Shave with a wet razor, usually Gillette Mach 3 using the Nivea shaving gel. I don’t think it helps reduce oil any but I do like the texture of it. Electric shavers just don't cut it for me and seem to make me break out so I never use them anymore. The shave is followed by a shower. I don't actually use
  21. can someone tell me a good shaving gel for acne because i break out alot from shaving and someone else told me to use a single blade is that better. i have sensitive skin

  23. Hi, Since my old shave gel is finishing (not too happy with it) I was wondering whether you could recommend me some gel to shave that would not break me out. Thanx
  24. Hey... I always get a rash on my neck after shaving, its based mostly just above my adams apple and to the right side of my neck. What I use is: Gillette Mach 3 Turbo with Gillette Series Sensitive Gel (Aloe Vera). I shave after I've taken a shower (I first splash hot water over the area I shave) and I cover the area I shave well with shaving gel, I massage it in a little bit so it softens up the hair. I use little diagonal/downward strokes and clean the razor after every stroke using hot wate
