I ... would not recommend. I had to be up early Saturday morning so I got up even earlier to shave. Went well, as it was the second shave of my first Derby Extra Super Stainless blade. I also had an early start Sunday, but even earlier. To shave the day of, I would have had to get up at 3:30 AM and I wasn't about to do that. So I thought I would shave the night before.

Bad idea. It was pleasant enough at the time. Not my closest shave, not even the closest shave of the day. But as I went to put on the lotion, which has only about three drops of an alcohol based aftershave in it and nothing else that would sting, I felt a huge amount of stinging. And it didn't quit overnight. Still had a red, irritated face all the next day. That feeling if being sunburned stayed with me for the next two days, until it finally healed. It was BAD. Now, It has been a few days and I want to shave again, but I wanted to tell you all the lesson I learned. NEVER shave twice in a day. No matter how fast your facial hair grows, pogonotomy is a once-per-day activity. not more than that.

Nothing wrong with shaving twice. If you have good shaving soap. I've done it without much problems. I've been forced to do it in boot camp, so it's definitely possible.
