So, I've said it before, and I will say it again—my razor bumps are a constant battle. Fortunately, I have conquered the battle of the shave, thanks to an awesome shave foam that I discovered via Blinging Beauty.
I have even found some great moisturizers (that doesn't sound so manly, but hey, I was forced to use it) that keep my skin pretty smooth. I work outside, so I have to keep my skin protected.
I am currently using a night treatment product that was made for men, and I really like it. It's called EmerginC Men's P.M. Fortifier.
Here's the info about EmerginC Men's Fortifier:

$49 for 50 ml
The directions state that the fortifier is for night use, but I have been using it in the daytime too. I like that it gives me exfoliates my skin and flattens out my razor bumps. But it is different from a regular peel (yes, this manly man has had facial peels); it's not as drying—you don't have your skin flaking off but you definitely notice the difference within a few days. P.M. fortifier is like a peel without the harshness. I think it can be called a "slow peel."
EmerginC Men's Fortifier keeps the bumps on my neck dried out and the hair is easier to shave off without irritation. I use moisturizer afterward and my skin feels great.
