So this is what it feels like being a man!
I've been hanging out on this site for a couple weeks and have put together some tips and tricks that I thought would work for me and wet shaving. I got everything but the razor and practiced working lather and technique on my Fusion while I waited for my razor to come.
This afternoon, my delivery from Amazon came and I went in to shower and have my first DE shave after. It was a lot less stressful then I thought it would be and it went great! No cuts or nicks and everything went as planned. Afterword, I finally felt like a real man and wanted to share my experience with all my friends. Unfortunately, they are not as receptive about wet shaving as I was but hopefully they will turn. Either way, I won't mind. This board seems to be a great place to discuss all things shaving!
For my gear, I bought a Art of Shaving travel kit and used the sandalwood pre-shave oil and after shave balm. For cream, I used Proraso (Bigelow & Co. from Bath and Body Works), A Parker pure badger brush and my brand new Edwin Jagger De89bl! All worked great and I'm really looking forward to exploring more product and continuing into my DE shaving life!
Thanks to everyone on this board for the tons of information. Here's a pic of my setup (which I think classes up my bathroom like nothing before)
