To the first point, no. I hold the can in one hand and use the other hand to spread it around. Bear in mind that the face has a lot less surface area than one's legs, so it only takes a couple of squirts of gel (in my case) to cover everything. I do rinse off my hand before shaving, but since I only have one hand with cream on it, I can turn on the water without messing up the faucet handle.

And no, I don't slap on after-shave with both hands, because I don't use it. If I did use it, I probably would.
