Ansgar- What soap or cream are you using? Ive been using Tabac soap and have found it some of the absolute best for keeping the lather for four passes of shaving. Ive been told that it is a very popular german product and is widely available there... You might consider giving Tabac a try, if you hav...

I have an allergic reaction whenever I don't use Tabac soap! :lol:

I LOVE Tabac! It gives great lather and good cushion. The lather lasts the duration of my four pass shave, too. Some of my soaps die out before Im done, but not with Tabac. It goes the distance.

Also, the EDT is nice, too.

Im using LetterK's sample pack, too. The Israeli's are the best on my skin, so far. Derby's are ok.

On the razor bumps, give your skin a couple days rest then try again the suggestions others have made.

let us know how it turns out!

Interesting that you should bring this sinus irrigation issue up on this shaving forum. A couple of months ago, I was surfing and came across sinus irrigation and after reading about it for an hour, I promptly went out and purchased a Neti pot and sea salt. Let me tell you this. I am a total believe...

Me, too.
I think that our DE shaves are improving AND our faces are getting used to the change.

Ive also been buying out our local drugstore of red palmolive. Every week or so, I go in and buy one or two tubes. There's always three tubes on the shelf whenever I go in...kinda odd....I think Im playing a game with those shop girls. Ive got several tubes now. It's a bargain here, at $1.88 per tub...

On Tuesday, I received my Tabac soap and cologne. Yup, I love that stuff, too! A couple of observations: -Nice creamy lather. Im still perfecting my lathering technique, but I seem to need to use more swirling to get a nice lather. Not a complaint, just observed this. I use a C&E Ed Jagger best bris...

It is important to select a heavy, not thin walled mug or shaving bowl. The heavy walls hold the heat better. Fortunately, the cheaper bowls/mugs are heavier. I found mine at a dollar store. Anyway, I use a really heavy, cheap shaving bowl 5"W x 3"H and leave it in the sink full of HOT water while I...

I was doing the "slide" as Mantic calls it, with a cartidge long ago and found it was a good technique, but be CAREFUL, you can tear yourself to ribbons, if you're not.
Hehee, I thought that I had invented it....silly me...!
