    This is what I do!! Tell me what you do? (FYI my wife thinks I am loony)

    I'm still working up my routine (still just a couple of months in), but here's my general plan. I see a lot of this sticking even after I build up experience: 1) I rotate between three soaps at the moment: Stirling Soap Lime, Gatlinburg, and Barbershop. I try to use a different one each time...

    Proraso White Pre- Shave Issue

    I use the Proraso green pre-shave. I've never had a problem with it, but I may try a different pre-shave once I work my way through the jar.

    What's your soap for today?

    Stirling Soaps "Barbershop." I go for that when I want something with a more subtle, neutral scent.

    Debate with me: daily shaving is excessive and unnecessary

    That would be awesome if true! Seriously though, it's crazy how fast it comes in.

    What Aftershave did you use today?

    Just shaved and finished up with PAA Atomic Age Bay Rum. First time I've used any kind of Bay Rum scent. I wasn't really sure I'd like Bay Rum; I tend to gravitate towards brighter, citrus-y scents like lime and orange but decided to take the plunge on a bottle of Atomic Age. I'm loving it. I...

    Debate with me: daily shaving is excessive and unnecessary

    My older cousin is an every day shaver. His facial hair growth is ferocious; within 12 hours of shaving he's already got noticeable growth and by the time he wakes up the next day he's got the equivalent of a two or three days growth on a normal face. I'm not an every day shaver. I don't really...

    Roughly one month in.....

    Thanks fellas! I've got some Voskhods in the sampler as well. I'll put those on stand-by after the GSB I have in there currently does it's time. By the way, the GSB was a great shave...definitely the best one I've had. Smooth, no nicks, no sign of in-growns. My face hasn't looked this good in a...

    Roughly one month in.....

    Hey all: Thanks a bunch for your responses. I've got some Silver Blues in the sampler pack, so I'll load up one of those and get to work. I'm actually overdue for a shave (was trying to sneak one in today, but it didn't work out)! Cheers!

    Roughly one month in.....

    Hello everyone....My first intro post was in this very forum on April 30. I want to post some of my reflections (that sounds so corny) on moving from carts to DE. Definitely loving it Shaving was not something I looked forward to before DE. Now, I love it. I love the ritual, the smell, the...

    Contest - $50.00 gift card to the winner!

    I got my first job when I was 16 and the very same day I got my driver's license. There was an ad playing on public access television for a gig at the local municipal golf course. Five bucks an hour...just a pinch over minimum wage at the time. My main job at the golf course was cleaning and...

    Howdy folks! All kitted out and ready to learn more

    Good afternoon! After being a cart shaver for 20 some odd years and some brief flirtations with a Norelco, I've made the jump to a DE safety razor and I'm loving it. I have fairly sensitive skin and cart shaving had actually gotten trickier for me the past couple of years...discomfort...
