Another successful month in the GRUME. Thanks to all for the support and camaraderie, and special thanks as always to @FoolishMortal for serving as the clerk-of-the-works for this thread.
I got one last shave out of this GSB blade in the trusty red tip Super Speed razor- I think it went 14 or 15 shaves. I'm not one of these 'Excelsior' blade longevity guys-- no, I'm just lazy. Brown/Black Beagle fan brush, Pre de Provence Bergamot & Thyme soap, and vintage Gillette Sun Up aftershave. It smelled so good that just before leaving the house I dabbed a little Sun Up Cologne on my wrists and behind my ears... like a real Dandy.
I'm still in, and looking forward to October.
Something to do with this maybe? Oct 27th is listed as the end of support date though…..Still in. Headshave only with the usual kit.
Weird thing. I can’t post using Tapatalk. I assumed it was because my annual donation had expired turns out it didn’t and now I have three memberships.
Regular use of a warm compress and topical disinfectant is also helpful.I looked up what to do about ingrown hairs, and none of the suggestions involved trying to dig them out of your face with crude tools. The consensus was "leave it alone and it will fix itself." One place suggested rubbing with a wet washcloth daily. So I'm doing that.
