View Full Version : Itchy face from a cartridge?
12-15-2009, 08:21 AM
Just had my first shave with my new sensor which I need to use offshore. Normal pre-post routine, MWF, alum, Nivea balm. My skin feels really itchy; could this be something on the lube strip or is it a reaction to the pulling and cutting action of the twin blade? I don't remember having a problem when I used M3; is it possible DE and straights have softened my skin and it needs to toughen up again to get used to the cart?

The lube strip could've cause an allergic reaction but so could an unusual razor to which your face has yet to be accommodated to.

This happens to my jawline when ever I'm shaving to fast with de or my trac2.

Could be an off blade--I am sure it happens with cartridges just as it can happen with DE's. I would give it 1, maybe 2 more shaves--if you can get that many out of it--before you move onto another cartridge. If you have the same problem, I would begin leaning towards some sort of allergy.
