Men, No More Neck Burn From Shaving

Updated on November 21, 2016

Men, No More Neck Burn From Shaving

Are you tired of getting that stinging rash from shaving with cream or gel and your blade? Are you sick of your blade going dull every two weeks and having to replace them? I have one solution for both problems! Use Vaseline® petroleum jelly.

Over 10 years ago, I was tired of my neck breaking out in rash and burning almost every time I shaved. I was using regular shaving cream or gel and a regular blade, not the disposable kind (those are the worst!) To make matters worse, it seemed like my blade would go dull every couple weeks or so.

I tried all kinds of things, my wife’s lotions (very expensive, but better than shaving cream on the neck), aloe plants (effective, but time consuming), dish soap (not very effective), and other methods; but I was just not satisfied yet. Then, one day, I got an idea. I had heard that Vaseline® petroleum jelly was inexpensive and great as a moisturizer, so I tried it. I couldn’t believe it, there was no more burning rash on my neck after shaving! I used it every day. After 3 months, I realized that I hadn’t replaced my blade yet! Wow! There is at least a double benefit from using Vaseline® instead of shaving cream. No more burning rash break-outs and a special film is left on the blade so it doesn’t dull at all for months.

I do not know any ladies who may have tried this method for shaving their legs. Please comment below if you have tried it and what your results are. I am curious to know if it works as good as it does for men and their necks and faces.

I now have an update! The creamy "Vaseline" that you can get at Dollar Tree works even better than regular "Vaseline". One major benefit is that this doesn't "gunk" up in your sink drain!

      Great! Let me know how it works out! Once you get past the "greasy" feeling (no big deal when wiped off in seconds with a towel), it's not only the best solution, but the most economical!
