I have what i consider a very sensitive face, particularly my neck.  I've been using an electric razor for 3 years now and it works great.  
From the thread over at OO, i bought that new 5 blade razor to give it a go and it really works well.  However, i need some really good shaving cream for sensitive skin.  After 2 days of shaving with the new blade it gives a close shave, but still kills my neck.  I try the normal gel and foam from Wal Mart and nothing seems to work.
Can anyone give me some recommendations on some good lotion, cream, or whatever for sensitive skin?

the edge gel for sensitive faces has allways worked for me.

I just started using a Norelco electric with the Nivea face gel that you can apply through the razor and I am liking that as well.

I've always been fond of Edge Advances Gel for Sensitive Skin, but then again I only really shave once every few weeks.  I just get lazy and let the beard grow until I feel motivated to shave again.

Try rinsing your blade in cold water between strokes.

My brother had the same problem and he fixed it by taking one of his friends advice.  It sounds incredibly gay, but the womens shaving gel actually seems to work well for sensitive faces.  Why or how?  I dont know.  I've never tried it myself so I cant confirm it.

No kidding? I always thought hot water was best for the razor.

cold water closes your pores.

Washing your face with VERY cold water. when you are finished, is also good for your skin.

Don`t shave! That`s my advice, heh. I literally haven`t shaved in 6 years or so.  Help bring the beard back!!!

nope, cold water.  I second that.  I have a pretty sensitive face as well.  Cold water cuts downon razor burn.  Makes it difficult sometimes, to clean the razor out in between strokes, but it does help.

Cold water in between strokes.

I used to always shave with the Gillette Power 3 or whatever and then I recently got a Titanium Electric Razor and you have to be really careful or else it will rip the skin off your face, but its pretty gentle when used properly.

I say electrics are safer then razors, just because I always end up cutting myself with a razor because it takes so damn long and I rush, this new electric is way better for time to.
