View Full Version : Need feedback on my regimen

I'd like some feedback on this, if you don't mind. I'm concerned about doing right for my face, as we all are. When I first started wetshaving a few weeks ago, I started using either Clubman's or Witch Hazel, followed by Nivea ASB. In the last few days, though, I've expanded my skin care regimen by adding toner, cleanser, moisturizer, exfoliant. So now my aftershave regimen, I still use the Clubman's or Witch Hazel, but instead of Nivea, I use the toner and moisturizer. I know those things are good for the parts of my face that I don't shave, but for the parts that I do shave... would I be better off going back to an ASB? Or am I still doing okay?

Just my .02 cents worth, but you can always try and use "Proraso After Shave cream", due to the fact it has "Witch Hazel" in it and somewhat acts as a toner and tightens the pores also has the moisturizing benefits as well. Might as well kill to birds with one stone. In my past experience I use to use a face wash/exfoliant followeed with a Astrigent/Toner and than a moisturizer, however this was overloading my skin and producing too much oil. Overall i think it would be nice to minimize the routine but still get the same benefits without irritation, oil-bulid-up, etc. I'm new hear so I'm sure you'll get many other opinions.
Also on another note perhaps just exfoliating once or twice a week would be more benefical.
