    Back to the Mach 3 for good!

    ^^^ The cheap option is there if someone wants to swap a Sensor 3 disposable blade into a superior Sensor Excel handle.

    How many shaves do you get from a Fusion and/or Mach 3?

    Not even worth reading this thread. It's just being used to dis Gillette.

    What's the Australian version of Scrubbing Bubbles?

    Can't shave without scarring myself

    Don't go against the grain then, it's not compulsory. There's an obsession here for bbs shaves which are not necessary. Two passes, one pass with the growth and one across with touchups is sufficient with the SkinGuard.

    Can't shave without scarring myself

    ^^^ I would recommend the SkinGuard. However, your other option for sensitive skin would be the Philips Norelco OneBlade which has also received very good reviews.

    Can't shave without scarring myself

    The SkinGuard works much better with a thinner more watery lather, so don't be afraid to add more water than usual when making and it won't leave any lather behind.

    - Mach 3 VS Mach 3 Turbo -

    I imagine the next move will be to marry the FlexBall with the 3D Motion :eek2:

    - Mach 3 VS Mach 3 Turbo -

    Gillette's latest entrant is the Mach3 Turbo 3D Motion.

    Back to the Mach 3 for good!

    The Gillette Sensor 3 disposable handle will fit the Sensor Excel cartridges and vice versa. If you have an Excel handle you're getting the equivalent of a basic Mach 3. Whether the disposable blades are as sharp as Mach 3 originals, I don't know? They're advertising 10 comfortable shaves with...

    Back to the Mach 3 for good!

    ^^^ I don't believe for a minute that the Flex 5 Hybrid could outperform the Mach 3.

    Nivea: Sensitive Skin & Stubble Balm

    It's for both. Basically for multi-use, a catch-all.

    Nivea: Sensitive Skin & Stubble Balm

    Fairly new product from Nivea. It's a pre or after shave conditioner. Just bought some today and it does soften the stubble nicely before shaving and very economically priced too.

    Best half SE blade. Recommendations Please.

    Don't snap blades in half, I cut them in half with very sharp scissors. It's much better and doesn't leave a knurled edge so the blade sits flatter. I use this type of nail cutter, does an excellent job, but any decent scissors will do.

    Love for Harry's and Defender razors?

    Do you have the vibrating model? I used the power on mine for the first time today, kept forgetting to try it and it definitely gives a closer shave.

    New Gillette 2 blades cart: The Gillette Skinguard!

    The more I shave with the Skinguard the more I like it. Well into double figures on the number of shaves, around 15, stopped counting after 10. I would say that you could get a minimum of 25 shaves and probably more, which offsets the high cost of refills.

    Cool shave

    Cold steel is fractionally sharper, doubt you could notice the difference though.

    Damn Comfortable Shave

    ^^^ Use it in the bath/shower as a body scrubber, that'll soften it up quickly.

    King C. Gillette razor

    You could try shimming the razor. There are plenty of threads detailing this, just do a search with "shimming razors". The good news is, if you don't want to mess about there are a plethora of more efficient razors available on the market.

    Thoughts after first shave with MdC

    You should write Martin De Candre at least once in your post, I had to google it. A lot of us are not familiar with every acronym under the sun.

    When I got into "classic" wet shaving 6 months ago...

    You can't really compare today's recession with the 1930s depression which lasted 10 years and people were dirt poor.
