Before I move onto using a DE razor I want to perfect my shave with an M3 first as they're not too good and can't get shave even relatively close in some areas. I normally use shaving gel but as part of preparing for DE shaving I want to start using cream with my mach 3.
I was wondering if there is a good tutorial to use for lathering up with cream (that is in a tube) without a bowl with pictures?
Also a couple of questions:
1. Why is the important of lathering up as such stressed so much when on the tubes of shaving gel it just says to apply straight to face ("Apply thin layer on wet face. Massage into beard, shave.")
2. Is there any different between cream in a tube and cream in a tub?
