Just wanted to say hello. Like many before me, I'm just another man looking for a better way of shaving than the commercial 4+ blade yank and slashfest.
For years I hated shaving. My cartridge and can goop always left me very dry and very unsatisfied with its results. Often I would go days even weeks from even attempting to shave because I just hated how dry and and rough my face felt even after I just hacked at it. If I were to go over it again I would break out from razor burn. Ouch!
Then one day I was browsing the web and I came upon the concept of wet shaving. Intrigued, I went surfing the web looking for more information; which is how I came upon B & B. So after viewing some videos on Youtube and surfing this wonderful board for information I decided to take the plunge.
As I wait in excitement for my new "toys" to arrive I just wanted to say thanks for such a wonderful place of information.
Here is the list of items I purchased for my very first DE shave:
Edwin Jagger De89L
Simpson Chubby 2 Best Badger Shaving Brush
West Coast Shaving Everything Sample pack
Proraso Shaving Cream
Tabac Original Shaving Soap with Bowl
Nivea Sensitive After Shave Balm
