Soothing Shaving Bumps? - February 10th 2010, 05:57 PM

Hey Y'all.

So - after all my lecturing on here about shaving, I myself managed to shave in the wrong direction, and now have PROPER itchy bums - right on the clothing lines!!

So, are there any effective ways of soothing these itchy bumps. Preferably ways which don't involve buying special creams as I'm not in town for a while

I mean, would Vaseline help at all? Or not because it's oily based?

You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

Aloe Vera gel is very helpful.. or if you don't have that, use some after sun? sounds a bit silly but it's soothing and does help.

Moisturiser. And if it gets really bad. A bag of cold peas. Just for a minute or two

Also. How do you get a smooth finish without shaving against?

Haha, I'd LOVE to know this too. I think probably using shaving cream would help? I normally just use soap, it's fine for me, but it doesn't get rid of everything lol. I might get some shaving cream tomorrow if I go to town :]

yes, definitely get shaving foam!! it works sooo much better, soap can leave your skin really dry and irritated. :]

Don't use soap! It's for cleaning, not lubricating!!

Yes, get some shaving foam.

And if you have Vaseline, use that to soothe afterwards. Any NON-PERFUMED moisturiser will help. One of the reason your skin is itchy is because you've removed the moisture by shaving. So replace it!

Vaseline, Aloe Vera, Sensitive moisturiser will all work. Also, if you're getting shaving cream I recommend getting Gillette for women since it works well and I think there's a type that moisturises as well.

Thanks for all your replies :]

I think I do have some Aleo Vera stuff tucked away somewhere. I used to buy shaving cream but recently seemed to have just stopped - I'll pop into to town some time and pick some up :]

I never really thought of soap being for cleaning and not lubricating - that's a good way of putting it :]

or you could think of using hair removal cream or waxing in future.. don't know if you've ever tried that before? some people just don't seem to get on with either of them though, it's not for everyone. :]

Hmm, I tried the Veet cream before - The time and smell annoyed me. Although it's worth considering - it lasts longer than shaving does :]

Am I the only one who feels uneasy about using hair removal cream? I mean if it's strong enough to dissolve hair, surely it can't be doing the skin much good? x

Hair removal cream is great... Veet isn't. I got some stuff made for extra sensetive mens faces. Its perfect. However, it involves sitting in a weird position for 15 minutes D:
