I shave most days, switching between my trusty Executive Shaving Outlaw and the magnificent OneBlade Genesis depending on how much time I have and how heavy my growth is. Midweek, it’s often the Genesis I reach for but when I’m not pushed for time and at weekends, it’s The Outlaw I choose.
I have wet shaved all my adult life and I have been a safety razor user for over 11 years. I consider myself to be a competent shaver and yet, now and again, I do get post-shave irritation which for me is typically itchiness, redness and burning on the affected area and almost always on my chin and or, under my jawline.

How do I treat post-shave irritation?

The only solution I have found anywhere that actually does treat post-shave irritation is Aloeclear.
Aloeclear is easy to apply, it is a roll-on application. When I get redness, razor burn or tenderness, I apply Aloe Clear to the affected area after shaving and again in the evening. With its roll-on applicator, there is no waste – it goes straight on the affected area.

I never suffer from ingrown hairs but I know many people do, if you’re prone to ingrown hairs, you really should use Aloeclear.
Use after all forms of hair removal including after waxing.

What is in Aloeclear?

It contains Willow Bark, Aloe Vera and Menta Piperita Oil, all known for their skin benefits.
Aloe Vera: Reduces infection and acne, boosts healing of small cuts, soothes and it contains antifungal and antibacterial compounds.
Willow Bark: Helps reduce acne and excess oil, refines pores and minimizes pore size, helps alleviate conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.
Menta Piperita Oil: used to relieve skin irritation and inflammation.

Two sizes – this is important

Aloeclear is available in two sizes, 60ml and 120ml.
My advice is to go for the 120ml size, which is £18.00. The 60ml size is £14.00 so for an additional £4.00 you get twice the amount of Aloeclear!

Fragrance Free Shaving Cream for Sensitive Skin

If post-shave skin irritation is a frequent thing with you, the first thing you should do is switch to a perfume free shaving cream and aftershave balm. Perfume for some people can be a major skin irritant. Our Fragrance Free Shaving Cream for Sensitive Skin is full of natural goodness and it delivers the rich, creamy lather needed to protect your skin when you wet shave.
