Aaaaaaagh! I had no idea this shaving lark could be so complicated! I was intrigued by the idea of using a DE razor, but don't know anyone who has used one before (my boyfriend has a beard and just keeps it in check with an electric). So I've spent literally hours and hours ploughing through all the fantastic information on B&B and now have an idea of what to try initially - I'm thinking of trying a Lady Gilette, with a large Omega brush and soap.
But I live in the UK and it seems to be really difficult to get a Lady Gillette here. The going price on the Bay seems to be about $55 with delivery, which is a lot of money before I've bought anything else, especially when I don't know how I'll get on. Everything seems to come from the states, and I can't seem to work out what the best UK equivalent is. Apparently I can't post a WTB either, because I haven't been a member for long enough.
I started off soooo enthusiastic about trying DE for the first time, but I'm at the point of giving up before I've even started. Which would probably please my other half, who can't believe how long I've been sitting on B&B!
Can anyone provide advice - or at least help motivate me that its worth keeping trying?
