Rick,

Try what kronos said you need to reset your IE defaults, maybe AVG made some changes to your IE settings, like disabling java scripts or something weird like that. Keep us posted

Yeah the taylors are really good value, I have shaved with both the almond and rose and I like them both, really nice creams. The almond really surprised me, gave me a really nice shave.

Thanks Greenhouse, yeah I agree, I also read to use an almond size amount, and like you I found that too much, could probably get away with half that and still get heaps of lather, trial and error I guess

Yeah I agree, I really think you should try an english cream, like a rose or almond, as i said the eucalyptus and menthol can upset sensitive skin, as Gordon says make sure your technique is good, and light presure, dont shave like you used to with a catridge razor or you will get bumps I would prio...

Ok your setup is nearly identical to mine, let me give you a suggestion. I still suggest you see a dermatologist. But I use a weishi at the moment they are a mild razor and I really like it, when I had the Merkur futur and the HD I got really bad razor bumps redness. With the weishi I dont. Ok I wou...

Murray,

I was like that with skin care stuff many years ago, spent god knows how much I would hate to think, and did me no good but tried most of the product lines. Seems that OCD has now come across to shaving, but at least you get good results from the shaving stuff :)

Yeah the weishi has been good for me compared to the Merkur HD, getting much better shaves.

I will probably retire it once I get the Gillette tech
