Look into shea butter. Shea nilotica east african shea butter is my favorite. Very little goes a long way!

If you're experiencing razor bumps and ingrown hairs, I'd focus on mapping your beard growth and developing your technique. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Proraso makes a nice protective and moisturizing balm.  Not too much scent and I like it a lot.

I like Proraso and Nivea.  Stirling also makes a damn good balm, and their no-alcohol witch hazel splash is pretty good too.

Try Soap Commander unscented with or without menthol it's very calmer and light cooling (menthol) and feels so good all day, if you don't mind scent grab Vison feels sensational. As for Nivea for Men great scent but it has alcohol sometimes it sting my face but awesome moisturizer.

Myrsol emulsion is fantastic...a big step up from the likes of Nivea balm etc. Great if you've had a rough shave or left the skin a bit tender.
Pre shave prep will also help with how how your face is left after a shave, as will trying to find soaps and blades that suit you

I don't know how sensitive you are to all types of alcohols, but Nivea, Proraso, et al. all have alcohol in them, even the balms.  They are not the types of alcohols you would associate with an alcohol-based A/S, however.  Nivea has panethol, isopropyl palmitate, bisabolol, and phenoxyethanol.  The Proraso balm has eythylhexyl palmitate, octyldodecanol, menthyl acetate, and phenoxyethanol.  Many of these are esters of alcohol.

If you have true sensitivities to alcohol-based products, I would recommend you consult with a dermatologist.  If you are just want to avoid alcohol-based ingredients, just investigate the ingredient list.  I tend to prefer artisan products because they tend to use ingredients that are easier to research.
