I decided to skip a day of shaving yesterday. This morning new crystal blade in the EJ 89L, lathered up some Cella. A couple of passes , what a shave. Followed up with some floid balm,nice stuff. I have wet shaved before using cart. razors. Then found that De razors still around. I am a converted DE user now. I started de shaving in Dec. 2011, so it took about a month before my face and my method to become use to it. To all newbies, dont give up, keep shaving it is a learning curve. Thanks to all for suggestions!!
