In brief: Sensitive skin

When you shave you are not only removing hair but the top few layers of skin and in possibly damaging some hair follicles.
Moisturizing is important but many products on the market have a high alcohol content which can cause irritation and pain. Make sure you read the ingredient list and look for water and glycerin as the top ingredients.
