I have to say that I totally get everyone's enjoyment of the hobby. I got a close shave with no nicks or anything and I enjoyed the experience. The way the omega brush felt on my face was a soothing feeling as I spread the soap around.
I was a little timid as I started to shave fearing I would slice myself but I just remembered to not apply pressure and chilled out. The only thing I think could have been better was the aftershave I used, which was just some skintimate stuff. The smell was not doing it for me.
I'm 25 and glad I found this stuff now instead of later. Good way to start the new year.
There is VDH deluxe soap in the tin and Merkur blades in the altoids tin.
