Am I the only oddball who recently tried using a shave puck like a stick? Nix the brush involvement? Had a sneaking suspicion all the extra abrasion was killing my skin (I've a boar brush) So I figured I'd take the puck directly to face. Worked wonders. Now I just need to look into getting a proper ...

I can't but feel like he is trying to sell Ice to Eskimo's, but on the other hand I'd like to believe him. o_o

Maybe I should try that 90 degree shave angle.

Its been so long since I've touched my DE or anything other then a pair of hair trimmers. x_x

Uh, yeah, you have to give it a try. Take your time, savor it.

Well if all these tell-tale signs ever come to fruition I suppose I could try Bumpfighter razors or Bic Sensetives, neither of which I've tried... Or maybe even a foil electric >_<

To desertbadger, I have saught out numerous doctors, have done accutane 3 times in my life, and have been told the same protocol by all the doctors: use a single blade, only one pass, explicitly told to only use Aveeno shaving creme, shave in direction of growth, etc. The alcohol based aftershave w...

Lionel, Thanks for clarifying your original post. Do you use the Merkur HD exclusively? I ask because when I was new to this, I started with a Gillette Tech and then moved on to an HD. I always found it more difficult to get the correct blade angle with the HD, and that's why it's sat in it's case ...

Lionel, Good to see you are reaching your comfort (pun intended) zone. However -- beware the wet-shaving monster know as hubris . Just when you think you have things down pat, BANG -- you slice open a wound that bleeds for days on end and takes weeks to heal fully. :D I'd hope not. =P I'm not a pow...

I've had a reaction to it also. The best comparative I could think of, is imagine putting alcohol on a fresh friction burn. :shock: Ended my shape quite abruptly.

My opinion so far of DE Razors & Wetshaving

So as many would know, like any newbie to Wetshaving and DE's I came due to difficulties with Ingrown hairs & Inflammation of horribly priced Cartridge razors. After being sold a Merkur HD, a highly reputed choice of razor. And Pifed by the very generous ThePossum. I went to it, after about a week o...

Either way, those blades are my face's new best friend. XD I'd wish Possum had sent me more then one when he sold me my Merkur tho. Lmao.

I've used the tiger, and it may have just saved me from shelfing my merkur HD.

I've yet to nick myself, or get any irritation from any of the shaves. I think I may have to buy some more of these. Along with some more cream and some skinfood. >_<
