I managed to give myself razor burn this morning Blush I don't even remember the last time I had razor burn, I think it's been several years. I used Boosters Mosswood AS, I really like Boosters but I don't think that it does anything as far as skin conditioning goes. About an hour after my shave, to quell the burning I ended up using RazoRock King Louis aftershave spray. The RR tamed the burning and now my face just has a little bit of mild irritation.

Rookie shaver mistake...

Have you made any shaving mistakes lately?

Shawn - as I may have shared with you, I use my Progress a lot and find it very forgiving of pressure to my face. But I used my Above The Tie R-plate recently and forgot that not all razors allow that. No nicks but I did have some irritation for a while. Some DR Harris and then some Wm. Neumann AS eventually fixed it. Lesson learned: know thy razors.

Your razor is like your wife. Neglect it, take it for granted, and it will burn you.

That's exactly what I did and I paid for it.

I think all of us get complacent from time to time with our shaves...our razors are pretty quick to snap us out of it though.

This happens to me from time to time when I'm using a razor I have not used in a long time.

I seem to have problems only when I am distracted or lose focus -- or when arising VERY early and not well rested. As soon as I get off the ball, just for a second, the nick or irritation will appear. Hmmm -- wonder what I should learn from this??

Well, yes. When I'm distracted I can have an especially aggressive razor bite me. The problem is that the reminder I have to keep my mind on business is the red I see after the fact. Facepalm Doesn't happen often, but too frequently for me. And I KNOW better! That's what hurts the most.

Same here! I was distracted this morning and in a hurry, and I do know better.

My Chubby 2 gives me burn if I go too hard, Brush Burn? Is this a new acronym?

I've done the same thing with a Shavemac D01.
