Wow.... first DE shave

  1. Well after a long wait for my new DE razor (EJ DE89L) and Astra superior stainless, with TOBS sandlewood soap and a best badger I have finally had my first shave and wow what a DFS !!! A few weepers and a small nick (a little bump on my chin which I regularly caught with the Fusion :cursing: ) a little razor burn under my chin (I was getting a bit carried away WTG,XTG,XTG and then ATG stupid thing to do on first shave I know, looking for BBS instead of a CCS) finished with alum and then witch hazel and finally Nivea sensitive aftershave balm.
    I had used Proraso sensitive a couple of times with the fusion:cursing: while waiting for my DE to arrive so it was first time with everything. With hindsight I should have stuck with the proraso and just gone WTG,WTG for my first shave but never mind I was so excited. :w00t:

    Imagine how great your 1,000th shave will be.
  8. For the first time in as long as I can remember I am actually looking forward to my next shave and working my way through the stack of different blades that I built up while waiting for my razor :drool: and building up a collection of soaps and creams. I have even started the RAD and thinking about my next razor :w00t: possibly an R41?
  9. Congratulations and salutations.

    That area under the neck is a challenge.
