So my Gillette SS turned up today (courtesy of IronHammer). After a quick clean and sterilise, I went for my first shave.
I used my last remaining Wilkinson Sword blade, C&E Sienna cream and my high street brush. Worked a bit on my lather technique and did a two pass WTG and XTG shave. Apart from a small area under my chin, all pretty smooth. Tidied the chin up with a quick ATG and it feels gooooood.
Although I was DE shaving before - I was using a cheapo razor. I always suffered a bit of soreness across the neck, but not tonight
Will be looking to get a blade sampler pack to see what really suits - but enjoyed the experience of the SS. Had to modify my technique a bit and concentrate, but still an enjoyable experience.
