    How long before beard oil?

    Hey guys, May try growing a bit longer, and see how it goes. Figured I’d update this thread instead of starting a new one... Is there a certain length where you guys would recommend balm vs. oil? LOVE the GBS products, so would go with them if I do switch. As I said a few replies above, have...

    How long before beard oil?

    Alright guys, time to update :). Have narrowed down what works best, and is the same as I described previously. Do one drop for the ‘stache, then 3 on the fingertips through the beard (more for the skin). Finish off with 2 in the palms, to coat the hair itself. Now, after brushing, it looks a...

    How long before beard oil?

    Hey guys, Been experimenting for a few days, and just wanted to check back. Should the beard feel wet or oily at all say, 30 mins to an hour afterward? Doesn’t leave any obvious oil on my skin when I touch it, just feels different than it used to if that makes sense. Lol Upper lip always...

    How long before beard oil?

    Thanks JB. That is an epic beard! Guess it’d be obvious if there’s too much, just not sure how to tell if there’s ENOUGH. Experimenting it is! Lol Joe

    How long before beard oil?

    Guys, Received all product today, and wanted to update. Used both the GBS shampoo and cigar scented oil, and LOVE them both. Scents are amazing, and feels great. Not to sound dumb and be the guy who asks 1000 questions, but any tips on applying the oil? Beard is a touch shorter than...

    How long before beard oil?

    Cigar Blend is what I went with, figured it’d be a sure win. :) So I’d assume it’ll absorb rather quickly? I keep picturing a greasy pillow! Haha Thanks again, Joe

    How long before beard oil?

    Thanks guys! Bought a shampoo and oil last night, supposed to arrive tomorrow. Based on Mullen’s list, I went with Grave Before Shave for both. We shall see what happens :). The shampoo is supposed to moisturize on it’s own, but I’d imagine I’d want to oil right after showering? Or better in...

    How long before beard oil?

    Thanks guys! Do you shampoo daily, or? Same product as your hair, I imagine? Currently trying H&S itchy scalp. I don’t really comb or brush mine, just straighten it out with my hands or a towel when out of sorts lol. Not overly thick like some, but consistent (if that makes sense). Thanks...

    How long before beard oil?

    Hello gents, Have read a few threads here, but nothing specific to my question. So, how long should a beard generally be before requiring extra care, such as washing or oils? Mine is as long as I’m going to grow it, and I keep it trimmed with the 16mm guide on my Norelco. Naturally, it feels...

    Face cleanser for acne, but non-drying?

    Thanks guys, dryness was my thought too. Bought some Cetaphil the other day (the sensitive formula), seems to be great so far. We'll see what happens ;). Thanks again guys, love this place! Joe

    Face cleanser for acne, but non-drying?

    Hello all, Had bad acne as a teenager, and was pretty well fixed up after a course of Accutane. For some reason, at 35, I'm starting to get some moderate patches again. Mostly on the sides/back of my neck and around my lips, but sometimes front of neck as well. Had been using Dove Men+...

    Cream similar to discontinued Dove?

    John, May trade you then! Might give it one more try, not sure yet. Do you think maybe I did something wrong with the Proraso? I don't claim to be an expert at this lol. Consistency was kind of like mousse if that makes sense lol. Maybe wasn't wet enough? As far as Kiss My Face and...

    DE89 issue?

    Thanks guys, I wouldn't imagine it'd bend either. I'll get a pic or two when I get a chance. Thanks!

    DE89 issue?

    Haven't tried anything else in it since. Have some Crystals and Derby's left I think, will give it a shot. Thanks!

    DE89 issue?

    Hello all, Have been reading a bit about some having alignment issues when using Feather blades in the EJ DE89. Lately, I've noticed that sometimes it feels like there's no blade in my razor. Razor has been dropped a few times, but not sure if that's the issue or if it's just the...

    Cream similar to discontinued Dove?

    Hello all, Been using Dove Men+Care Expert shave cream (in the tub) with Feather blades for a while now. Enjoyed the combo, never had a bad shave with it. As most know, they've discontinued the cream and I'm left trying to find a similar replacement :(. Tried Proraso red, as everyone seems...

    Average blade life?

    Hello all, New here, so I apologize if this has been beaten to death... How many shaves do you typically get per blade? I've been using Crystals, and am happy with them for the most part. Seems like on the 3rd or 4th shave though, I'm getting more irritation and requiring more passes...

    Does anyone only go ATG with a Mach 3/5 or similar?

    I think you're onto something. I used to do only one official "pass" with my Fusion (ATG), but would also do touch-ups without lathering again. Complete relearning with the DE, but very much worth it :). I've only been at it for less than a month, but feel like I'm getting noticeably better...

    Worst shave I can remember :

    Thanks guys for the great advice. This site is great, would be lost without it ;), The only thing I did differently is the lather itself. Both times I left a small amount of water on the surface while I showered, read that it helps to soften (especially the Edwin Jagger soaps, which can be hard...
