Nivea is very good and cheap.

Weleda is also very soothing.

I also have sensitive skin and know the superficial burn you mentioned. For me personally, the Myrsol emulsion or GFT skin food works great. The Myrsol has a light menthol help healing and has alight scent. The Trumpers skin food lime is nice a cool and soothing yet restorative.

I'm lucky in that I never have issues with razor burn but I do tend to tightness after the shave.  I've used several balms in the past.  Everything from the relatively inexpensive Nivea to the more upscale LoCcitane and it all worked great.  That said, after I tried Celestino's beloved unrefined Shea the others have become PIFs.  It goes on light or heavy depending on my application. It seems to provide a vapor barrier through the day which keeps my skin hydrated in my high desert climate. It seems to not be heavy feeling when I travel to humid locals, and it's darn cheap.

I am going to cheat here, and say that the best “aftershave” balm is a thin layer of Noxzema Classic Clean Original cream applied to the beard before lathering.  The Noxzema adds lubricity, reducing the occurrence of razor burn before inception, and, in the event of some razor irritation occurring anyway, it is already in place and healing with menthol and eucalyptus oil faster than one possibly could apply a balm after, or even during, a shave.

I use it but I always end up with pimples when I do. It seems to clog up my pores
