I started DE shaving about 2 weeks ago. As I am trying different products, I wonder if I am adding too many variables.
I am generally using Kyle's prep method while usiing mostly superlather. I have not used the same soap/cream combinations in an effort to try different products. Too much to soon?
I have also used two different razors -- Gillette Superspeed from my Grandfather and Merkur Futur. Generally I use the superspeed for a weekly, relaxing and elongated shave and the Futur for daily beard reduction.
Both of these have generally produced good results...until last night. I used T&H 1805 as the cream. (I could definitely tell a quality difference over Bigelow cream. Too bad for my wallet!) However, I changed blades from a Merkur to Derby. I adjusted the Futur to a lower setting but it was not good compared to the merkur. Did I cahnge too much is my setup to give an accurate view?
Am I changing too much too soon? Should I keep a more consisted routine for a set time then change fewer elements?
Any thoughts/advice/recommendations are appreciated.
