    Rinse, apply witch hazel, apply after shave, fend off the wife. Kind of like living in an Axe commercial... Without using Axe.

    Cold water, Thayers witch hazel, Nivea balm, aftershave. (I find that if I apply the aftershave before the balm, the former's scent will be mitigated by the latter.)

    Nivea balm is about the only shaving thing that survived my transition from carts to wet shaving. I rarely use it, but it's there if I need it.

    Warm water rinse, cold water rinse, lightly pat face with towel and then apply after-shave balm.

    Afterwards, periodic faceturbation remains entirely possible...

    Since discovering Dragonsbeard soap, my post-shave routine is much easier:
    Shave using Dragonsbeard
    Cold water rinse
    Thayers witch hazel
    TSD Bourbon & Vanilla AS splash

    Enjoy fantastic post-shave for 8 - 12 hours.

    I'm so impressed with the soap I'll be getting the skin food when their new Ethos product line of shaving soap & skin care products comes out in the next month.

    Witch hazel or aftershave, sometimes both. Then a shave balm or lotion.
