So I'm new to the DE world. So new in fact I haven't even received my first DE razor in the mail.
I have collected some of the gear I will need to start my new adventure. Prorazo Cream, William's Soap, After shaves, balms, blades, and a styptic pencil.
I'm not a patient man so after my last cartridge shave I figured I'd try out some of my new gear. Which brings me to my new fangled styptic pencil.
Now in the past I've never cut myself very bad and when I did get a minor nick the bleeding stopped quickly naturally. But since I've been reading so much on these forums lately I figured I would try out this demon spawn of a "first aid" item on a couple minor nicks I had.
HOLY CRAP WHERE WAS THE WARNINGS THAT THIS BURNED LIKE THE FIRES OF HELL HAD BEEN UNLEASHED BY SATAN HIMSELF?!?!?!
This had to be the most burning sensation I have ever experienced in my life. I swore right then and there I would rather be bleeding out from my jugular than have this come anywhere near my body again. But then it got wierd and I started touching it to even the smallest of nicks. It was oddly hypnotic and addictive all at the same time. I would compare to the feeling of sticking ones tongue on a 9volt battery.
I'm not sure where I was going with this post, but thought I should warn the others out there that have not had the sudden horrendous burning napalm inducing scream fest of a device come in contact with their body.
