So I have been new to this whole thing and testing the waters. I haven't yet ordered a DE but am using a Sensor Excel, which isnt a horrible razor, IMHO. So I wanted to try out a couple of new products this evening. I applied the King of Shave pre shave oil, and then lathered up some C&E Nomad shaving cream using my C&E Best Badger Brush. Everything was going fine- enjoyed the lather. The shave went pretty normal, except for some nicks that occurred while trying different pass techniques. Then came the aftershave. I wanted to try one of my old classics- the Gillette after shave lotion: Everything was going good- then i tried my new Clubman Shave Talc I picked up today from CVS Pharmacy. BIG MISTAKE. It burned like hell fire. It was unbearable. I had to wash it off and put on some Proraso pre/post and then the Proraso balm. My question- did I do something wrong or out of order? Should I return the Talc? Am I allergic? Please help!
