Hi, I'm Mark and I am 20 years old. This is my first post but I've been lurking around for a couple days. It's funny how I stumbled upon wet shaving as I have never heard of it or even knew what it was. I was at Target looking for a razor and saw that Gillette came out with a new razor, the pro glide. So after reading the package I bought into the hype and took the plunge and bought the electric razor including the cartridge it came with. After checking out the prices for new cartridges, I thought to myself dang they're expensive. But what can I do, this is what I have to pay if I want a top of the line razor and a close shave. Boy, was I wrong. So after coming home I went on amazon.com just to read the reviews. Someone mentioned wet shaving in their review and I asked myself, hmmm whats that? So I googled it and started researching and am amazed that I never knew about this. I started watching videos on youtube and then came across this site. After reading so much for two days I decided to take the plunge and purchased a few things to start my own kit. This is what I purchased. Proraso shaving cream Weishi safety razor Tweezerman Badger brush 50 sample blades which include 10 BLADES OF RED PACK PERSONNA, 10 BLADES OF BLUE ISRAELI PERSONNA, 10 BLADES OF DOUBLE EDGE BRAND PERSONNA, 10 BLADES OF DERBY BLADES, 10 BLADES OF DORCO ST301 Starting off cheap until I get some experience. I can't wait to get started. Any tips for a newbie? I read that the derby blades are a good starter blade. Should I use this for my first shave? Thanks everybody!
