Having spent tons of money on trying different razors/shaving techniques/products, etc.. over the years I've come to the conclusion that I will never find a perfect set up but I know I can be better than what I'm currently doing.
Despite trying a D/E and liking it I constantly come back to the Gillette Fusion or Shick Titanium. Why-because they give me a relatively quick and close shave and I don't like handling blades and all of that which goes with D/E shaving. I will be the first to admit multi-blade cartridges are not ideal however I have a very dark, coarse beard and can not get a close shave with a single or double blade cartridge in my experience. On top of this I have sensitive skin. I have my shave routine down and use expensive but good quality clinical line shaving products (Murad Men shave cream, after shave, alcohol free witch hazel toner, moisturizer)
My question is:
I know that D/E shaving is best however I don't like switching the blades, etc.. This is a lifelong psychological issue with not wanting to handle sharp things, the issue isn't going to go away, I'm not going to "get over it" etc..
I'm wondering if I can get as good as a shave with an injector type razor? Are there any cartridge type razors that I can get a good shave with- Mach 3, Sensor etc... they don't give me a close enough shave because of the thickness of my beard and just irritate my face.
If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions as to what I can do to get a close shave (a necessity with a dark, coarse beard) please let me know.
Thank you for your help,
