Early on in our relationship, my boyfriend and I hit a snag: He hated shaving due to discomfort and razor burn, and my sensitive skin hated his stubble.
For the first three months, we toughed it out. He'd endure the painful shaving process every week or so, and I'd put up with some serious beard burn after his one to two day window of baby-smooth skin wore off.
But finally, one day I'd had enough of dealing with the bright red, irritated skin on my nose and chin that appeared every time I kissed him. So I turned to a shopping editor's best friend, Google. A quick search for ways to treat and prevent razor burn led me to NIVEA Men Sensitive Post-Shave Balm.
I promptly picked up a bottle and texted my BF, "I have a surprise for you." He was visibly less-than-thrilled when he realized that his "surprise" was actually an encouragement for him to shave more. But being the sweet man that he is, he graciously accepted it anyway.
