How to Get A Better Shave On Your Neck

Post by mantic » Tue Aug 19, 2014 9:30 am

After a long hiatus, the Shave Tutor videos have returned! A while back I surveyed users on some of the forums about what their most annoying shaving problem was, and most of the responses had something to do with the neck. So I put together this video (+ a long blog post with more detail):

Thanks for the video. I changed to a cold water shave and it helped the comfort and quality of my XTG pass under my neck. I was never able to achieve a BBS in this area using warm or hot water. The cold water seems to make my skin more taut for my XTG maneuver. Also I seem to suffer less often from irritation since I switched to the cold. It does take some getting used to but now I find the cold water exhilarating in the early a.m. My version of the polar bear club.
