    Those are some good tips, I always seem to get little red bumps after I shave my legs even though I use a new moisturizing stripped razor and shave cream. :(divalocks10

      I personally find shave gel works better for me. I think it’s different for different people of course! I’ve also heard that using conditioner instead of gel or cream works well too, but I haven’t tested that out yet.Syrana

    I almost always seem to get razor burn! I do most of the things you suggested, but still! It was really bad when I was a teenager. For some reason if I put on lotion or sweat within a couple hours of shaving, it’s all over right then and there. The best thing I’ve ever done is to keep a bottle of sea water (water with sea salt, I’m guessing, is the same thing) in the bathroom. I’d pour that on my legs after shaving it would soothe the irritation and speed healing.ohsosavvymom

    Good info, hadn’t considered the shave last step. My issue isn’t burns it’s cuts :(

    I use a gel, seems to help.closertolucy

    I am a red head and have extremely sensitive skin so unfortunately I am very familiar with razor burn! I once read that if you ran out of shaving cream then to use your conditioner to shave. So I tried it and the results were so awesome that it is all that I use now and I never get razor burn or bikini bumps, plus my skin gets a little extra moisturizing!

    Razor burn is the worst! I get it the most when I rush! Now, I will only shave if I have the time to put into it, and not just do a quick job that will likely be annoying and painful later. =) Also, I tend to get less razor burn when I use conditioner to shave, instead of shave gel.
