    Finally exposed to COVID

    We had a cluster in my workplace the first week of October (no millennials). Some people had mild symptoms. I'm 66 and reasonably good health but I had a long bout with it that included pneumonia and blood clots. I'm doing much better but still dealing with some coughing and exhaustion. I work...

    Stubble retracting beneath the skin turning into a BBS - magic or reality?

    Here is my $.02 worth as someone who does not chase BBS at all. I never notice how close of a shave I've had until about an hour after I shave. I notice even more 24 hours after a shave. My beard is light and slow growing so 24 hours after a close shave there is just not that much there to shave.

    Razor rotation. Which razors have you used the last 5 shaves?

    Merkur 34D HD Post War Ball End Tech I tend to load a new blade in one of them and use it for a week (about five shaves). I like an every other week rotation between theses two razors.

    Van Der Hagen Deluxe soap change?!?

    I have used both and have not noticed a difference. I never looked at the ingredients. For me it performs as well as soaps that cost many times more.

    Flu Shot

    I got my flu shot and shingles shot on the same day. I would not recommend it. I was a complete mess for a few days.

    Poor sense of smell!

    Unfortunately my sense of smell continues to deteriorate with age. My choice of lathers is based almost completely on performance. It hasn't effected my sense of taste though, and definitely no my appetite.

    How Often Do You Shave?

    I shave in 48 or 36 hour intervals. Usually Monday, Wednesday, Friday AM and Saturday PM. I would shave more frequently but my beard just doesn't grow that fast.

    PRE or POST Shower Shave (and why)?

    I get my best shaves after a hot shower with a moisturizing face scrub.

    Best starter blade for VB Chieftain JR and basic Feather razors

    Another new old guy here. I've been doing this about four months. You have a great selection to choose from. I started with Derby Extra and Shark Super Stainless because they are reputed to be the least sharp and the most forgiving. it worked for me but blades are very subjective.
