Hey everyone, I haven't logged in for a while, and I don't know whether it is out of a general laziness or just plain shame. Since confession is supposed to be good for the soul, I must admit...
For the last month or so, I have been using a cartridge razor.
I had run out of Swedish Gillettes, and I refuse to use the stateside personas. So, I went looking for fusion refills. Needless to say, the price made me choke, until I saw a disposable power razor from, of all people, Old Spice. (I know!)
This thing came with 3 cartridges and the handle for just $5.99, so I said to myself "Self, this'll do in a pinch".
Well, 2 passes and touch-up gave me a BBS shave, I kid you not. No burn, no irritation. Even the places that the DE can't quite get, this little thing did. I have only used my alum block once since then. I now fully believe that the proper prep and product makes all the difference. I never had those things before I started wetshaving.
Now, I'll never completely give up my DE shaves, but I don't detest a multi-blade like I did 5 weeks ago.
Anyway, there it is, I said it. Don't hate me.
