Shulton Old Spice burns but P&G doesn't

Any idea why that might be? What does the Shulton formula have that the P&G doesn't that would cause my face to burn?

It really happens at almost any time. Weekends, weeknights, mornings, evenings. A friendly chat is out of the question. It has been attempted before.

Question for the law saavy

My fiance and I live in an apartment building. We've been here for about 4 years and we like it very much. The majority of the owners and tenants here are Brazilian, which is fine of course. Our neighbors, however, often have what I can only assume is a Bible group, over on the weekends, which is al...

I get one decent shave out of a Feather. They are far too expensive a blade if I can only get one shave out of them. I still haven't found anything that works for me as good as the my trusty Swedes.

I work for the audio visual department at a university and had to sit through a few speech classes and provide A/V assistance. I remember thinking to myself that if I were in that class, I would certainly be giving an informative speech on the benefits of wet shaving. Good stuff.

Thanks for all of the tips guys. I'm going to go back to basics next week and really try to figure this out. Here is the terrain in question. Maybe I just need to put on some neck weight and make the area a little flatter. These were taken moments ago. I shaved yesterday. http://farm3.static.flickr....

Neck Problems

Been having a tremendously difficult time getting good results without shredding up my neck lately. The biggest problem here is that my neck hair grows on a super steep angle and is almost parallel to my skin, making it hard for the razor to catch it on it's way by. This results in me adding more pr...
