I just tried some Ogallala aftershave and while I love the scent, and I may even like the burn, I was wondering what the proper technique is. I shave in the shower, so I come out of there, pat my face dry and then put the aftershave on. Before I tried the limes and peppercorns from Ogallala, I had only used the Nivea cooling balm and wasn't expecting the burn. Should I be splashing some cold water on my face first to close the pores? Is the burn caused by the AS going into the open pores?
