Congrats! You're starting to get the feel of it now, I bet - beginning to be able to notice the difference between when things are going well and when they're not.
My man, I *totally* get where you are. After reading enough stuff on here I wanted to:
* Try ALL the bladez!
* Use ALL the creamz!
* Smell ALL the soapz!
* Buy ALL the razorz!
And, basically until I slowed down and spent a few months with just my Gillette TTO, a stack of Crystal blades, and a tube of Proraso I succeeded in giving myself a regular case of razor burn. And, I came to believe my fellow B&Bers when it was pointed out that 99% of the problems a new DE shaver has are related to inexperience and technique, not the razor, blades, cream, or soap.
Good luck! Keep on practicing!
