    Arko August 2021

    I stuck my home-made Arko puck in the back porch to air out, round about 14th July. So far, so good. It got hot. The good news is that it has had a thorough airing out. The bad news is that it smells like someone crashed a tanker full of industrial limonene out there. With a bit of luck, the...

    Red Bumps while shaving

    I use the hot washcloth prep (soften and hydrate the stubble), and various post-shave products (Nivea Balm, 2-Phase Lotion or Hyaluronic Acid) to mitigate any damage I might have done, and I'm currently doing OK. So far, so good. On the other hand, I had a load of skin trouble in 2018, so I...

    PIF: Straight Razor Starter Kit

    Respectfully not in (and on the wrong continent anyway). Great PIF though. As a non-user of straights, I think the shorter cutting length compared with western straights, and the ergonomic-looking handle would make a kamisori a better introduction, as I'd be less likely to inflict collateral...

    How thoroughly do you rinse your face after your shave?

    I got into the habit of doing a very thorough warm rinse while I was trying out soaps and creams, some of which gave me irritation. MWF is so harmless that a sketchy rinse would probably be fine.
