(or Mexico Shitty, as we say when the traffic is THAT bad).
I'm Andres, born in Argentina, living in Mexico for the last 10 years and loving every minute of it.
I've used everything but a straight razor, and I have a rather sloppy shaving schedule. I shave a couple of times a week, not for lack of growth, but because I don't mind the scruff.
Now I'm willing to pick up a quicker pace and clean up my act. I'm partial to double edge safety razors, and I've been using a very basic Gillette screw-in plastic handled that I've bought some years ago as my "exploratory" razor. After reading a little on this forum I've became aware of my huge luck, as I only used brazilian Gillette Super Thin Mejorada blades, the only blades available at the nearest pharmacy (they don't carry them anymore, now it's only cartridges ).
I've bought a basic kit at ClassicShaving.com: Feather razor and blades (this was before reading about the red Gillettes), a house brand pure badger brush and a mug soap, and I'm learning to shave again, with very pleasant results.
One thing that seems impossible to me is shaving everyday. I'f I get a close shave, the next day my skin is all bumpy and not all the stubs are out already. I have to wait 'til the next day to shave again, and then most of the time I get a nasty razor burn. This has happened since the dawn of beard and I will be very thankful for any pointers to a better experience. Until now, the only solution available for me was to switch hardware and buy a very noisy electric Braun shaver.
This is me, scruff and all: http://andresb.net/blog/datos/
See you around,
