I shaved last night for the first time with a DE89, Derby blade, and kiss my face cream. It was okay, nothing to get crazy over. I blame it on my first time. But I do have a question. After my shower and I started to put cream on my wet face, my face dried up real fast like I was no longer wet shaving. Hopefully that explains it, just my face was not moist. I think I might have the culprit, the castile soap I sometimes use as a face wash. It can be drying but can that affect the wet shaving and cream? I might try the shaving again today and use my wife's face wash this time for comparison.
