Greetings. I am a 40-year old father of twins who has been wet shaving with the disposables and the goop in a can for almost 20 years now. Before that, I used electric, because that's what my parents bought me when I started shaving.
I just got ghe OK to get the real deal from She Who Must Be Obeyed. So, because of budgetary concerns, I purchased the VDH premium shave kit. Using my wife's conditioner for pre-shave, and debating on the AS. Probably just witch hazel.
One thing I don't have yet is a DE razor. Don't banish me from the board yet, but I got the evil Gillette Fusion Pro Glide. We have some antique stores here in town, and a Market Day the first weekend of every month, so hopefully I will be the owner of a
good prior owned DE soon. If not, then I'm askng for a Merkur for birthday in August
or for Christmas.
I've been lurkng for 3 days, decided to join, and have learned much just by reading. I am looking forward to interacting with all of you.
