I feel dirty
After exclusively DE shaving for about a month now with mixed results, yesterday I went back to my old routine with the old products -- sans pre-shave oil (i'm phasing it out). Nivea Sensitive skin goo, pure badger brush, and the trusty Mach3. I did however use my mug for the lather whereas I used to hand/face lather. I used to do one pass in the shower and that's it, with results that I was happy with.
Anyway, I did one pass WTG. Then another XTG. I was feeling froggy so I did ATG for the first time in about 8 years (I hadn't dared with my DE yet, still too inexperienced technique-wise).
It was the best shave I've ever had. And it was with a Mach3. Like I said, I feel dirty. I know it's silly to feel that way, because the whole idea is to find something that works best for each individual. But darnit I love the tradition and ritual of wetshaving, and it's hard to get into the "tradition" with a cartridge razor.
I think I'll leave the mach3 for work days and rush-days, which are usually the same. The good thing is that as a fireman I have 10 workday shaves a month. So I'll still get my DE reps in.
I just needed to tell someone so that the shame didn't build.
