First off, I'd like to say hello to all. I have just gotten into wet shaving and it sure sucks that I didn't discover this stuff many years ago! The only issues is that I am still experiencing some razor burn and looking for some advice.
I have attched some pics of the vintage Gillette DE that I picked up at a local antique store. So for I like it (because I so many others to compare it to!). All joking aside, it feels good in my hands and controlable. As for blades, I have tried both Wilkinson Swords and the generics from CVS. The CVS brand actually feels more comfortable.
I have used both Proraso ultra-sensitive soap and Van Der Hagen soaps with a $20 badger brush. I have also tried the Prosaro preshave cream.
I am fast learing that this whole game comes down to a lot of personal preference. If anybody has any advice I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
