View Full Version : 3rd shave getting better
04-09-2012, 08:08 PM
So I just shave 20 mins ago with my Parker 22r and I used Anthony logistics shave oil and t&h 1805 with derby razor . Again I didn't get perfect shave but it was good enough . When shaving my mustache I cut my self and so I start using Gillette fusion trimmer there to get perfect shave . And I did a pass going down and pass going from ears to nose and I had some stubble so I shave them with Gillette fusion trimmer that gave me perfect shave still not good on neck area its pretty tough . Did I do right to use Gillette fusion trimmer ? I'm doing something wrong to not get good shave . But starting today I'll be shaving every night . Wish I know somebody who corrects me that what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for listening

I have to go XTG (across the grain) to get the whiskers right under my nostrils. I just go slow and steady under there and it's not a problem.

Sometimes I feel like there is something wrong with my razor and when I shave all it does is clean the shave cream instead of pulling hair . It feels like it glides a lot especially in mustache area.

So I'm fairly new to this, I'm sure somebody with more experience will be of more help. But it sounds like an issue with the angle you are holding the razor to your face. Try and find what angle the razor works best at when you are on an easy area like your cheeks, and then try and keep that angle when doing the other areas

Sounds like angle if you're not cutting at all and only clearing away the cream. For my nose, I start off down (as much as I can get). Then, I pull the nose to one side, then shave sideways from the center outward...and vice versa. ATG is my final pass on the 'stache...but that is also the trickiest. I was using the fusion trimmer when I started out. Not a bad idea until you get your technique perfected.
