I just started shaving using straight razor for the past one week. Been doing it everyday since then and although I had a nick on the first day, I managed to get a baby bum smoothness on my cheeks by going across and against the grain. I've been wet shaving using disposable razor for the past 15 years and never had such smoothness with similar passes. Three days later, I'd say I have the same great result with the rest of the face area (except the upper lips).
My only concern about shaving with straight razor is the post shave sensation on the skin. The aftershave helps sooth the sensation but I never had the same problem with disposable razor before. Is it more of the sharpness of the razor or I just need to improve my techniques? Would the skin get used to it and the sensation will be less if I keep on at it? Do share your thoughts on it and please suggest ways that can help. Thanks
