I have 6 or 8 DE safety razors (don't want to count too carefully, could be 8 or ten) and I seem to be having this problem to a greater or lesser degree no matter which razor I use. The problem area is above the corners of my mouth in the moustache area. I do the first pass, north to south, no problem. This is kind of across the grain for me. I do the second pass from the middle under my nose to the outside, with the grain, on both sides, no problem. Here’s the problem: I try to shave from each corner of my mouth, horizontally and inward on both sides, and this is the “against the grain” pass for me, and this is where I get irritation, nicks, redness and soreness. But I would sure like to be able to make this third pass to get a smooth shave above my lip. Today, I was reduced to touching up with an electric razor in the problem areas. This was helpful, but distasteful. I want to use my fine DE razors, dammit! Any suggestions or input is gratefully appreciated, and thank you.
