My last few DE shaves have been terrible, some nasty slices and tonight a bad case of razor burn. I'm wondering if this is because I've been focussing my attention on straight shaving for the last six weeks and just occasionally shaving with my DE safety razors.
Tonight i pulled out my Merkur Futur, my new Simpson brush and Boots SS and got a pretty decent shave but even before i got out of the shower i could tell my face felt a good dose of razor burn.
Applied some Proraso 'pre & post' shave cream and some Old Spice AS (Yikes that stuff stings). I'm left wondering if part of the problem is my confidence with my DE Blade having recently had my fair share of nasty cuts. Its odd that i don't seem to be having the same problems with my straight razor.
