What's new

What did you learn from your last shave?

Ice cubes in my shave mug water for dipping/getting additional water when face lathering. Feels great and have been going with cold water shaves lately. Seem to get closer shave without going ATG.
Changed my regular Nivea balm to CeraVe moisturizer(balm + scentless) with Hyaluronic acid added to it works wonders for finishing off a shave. My skin feels very smooth and refreshed and can be used for other problem areas of dryness.
To always come back at a later date to a razor that didn't work for me.
I came back to the Blackland Blackbird OC plate that was harsh. Well that plate worked out great, I'll keep a BB OC plate on hand.
That if the blade feels like it needs a change, it needs a change. Was doing an against the grain pass on my lip, razor was tugging too much, but I stuck with it and drew blood. Just a tiny droplet that took about a minute to stop, but still. This teaches me that not all brands of blades will last as long as others.

I was reminded that if I'm late and really pressed for time a quick rub of Arko around my wet face provides an excellent slick base for a squirt of Barbasol. A close, clean 2 pass shave in less than 3 minutes. Wouldn't want to do it every day but it's nice to know the option is there when I need it.
