I cold water shave, lather my face with the remaining shave soap after my final pass and then head into the shower. This was the process I started on to help with my ingrown hair issue and, since it worked so well and left my face feeling great, I've never changed the method. To kick it up that extra notch, at the end of the shower, run hot water on your face followed immediately by a quick cold rinse. Wow...

andrewjs18 , I do have a question for you or anyone else who shaves before their shower. I love the post-shave feel of a lot of the soaps I use. For example, I showered yesterday morning and twelve hours later I still felt like my skin was moisturized (BTW, I did not use a balm after my shave). So my question is, if you are showering after your shave, do you still get that moisturized feeling? My concern is that I would be washing away a lot or some of those elements of the soap.
If I shower after shaving, I'll always put on an ASB or splash after the shower. a decent amount of the time, I'll shave a few hours before going to bed and then shower in the morning. when that happens, I'll usually just throw on some thayers unscented and alcohol free witch hazel.
