Rushing off to work, but I wanted to report what just happened:
I took Joel's advice and got WillG's Peppermint Shea soap, and I also (kinda ...) took Scotto's advice and used a "more aggressive" setting.
Today I used said soap with PSO, and with a SLANT/NEW FEATHER combo. I went **4** passes, just because it felt so good ... and not a single nick, tear, slice or rip. The razor just GLIDED over my face. I could have done 3 or 4 more passes, if I wanted. The soap stayed moist, my face stayed lubricated, and the SLANT just flew. Even got the majority of nasty hair on my chin this time! And talk about FACETURBATION!! I can't keep my hands off my face!
EVERYONE: GET WILL G'S Soap! Quickly!!!!!
Considering all the trouble I have been through here and on SMF, this is a true REVELATION :) .. Last time I felt this good is when I bought my first new BMW a few months ago!
There was a small bit of irritation on my lower neck, but a single dab of Tendskin took care of it. Finished off with my normal Dr Harris AS Milk.
Thanks to everyone, and especially WILLG, Joel, Ron, and Scotto!
