I seem to be having some troubles with Taylors Brand Creams vs Col Conks soaps.
Heres the deal I seem to get a lot less irritaion using the soaps than I do the creams. I understand it could just be the brand of cream but it seems Taylors is highly recommended. I also enjoy the scents of the creams more than the Col Conk soaps.
On to the situation:
Gear: Col Conks Pure Badger Brush, a Gillette Super Speed DE with Merkur Blade.
I prep pretty much like everyone else with a shower while my brush is sitting in some hot water.
I have used the Hair conditioner trick and it doesn't make much of a difference. I am conscience of blade angle and pressure too.
With the cream I make 2 passes first n-s then 2nd is ear to jaw above the line and n-s on the neck. thats all my face can stand its on fire after the second pass.
With the Soap I can get the 2 passes in easily and then can do a third pass s-n on the outsides of my throat and cheeks and n-s on the lip and chin and throat directly under my chin.
I think thats about it if anyone can give any sugesstions or if you need more info on my technique then please reply.
Thanks in advance
