I just wanted to post a little feedback on my first wetshave from a couple days ago. I used Taylor's Avocado cream, Conk pure badger brush, Conk Trac II handle with Conk Trac II cartridge. For aftershave I applied Thayer's alcohol free rose and some Nivea "extra soothing" balm. Overall, I really like how the cream lathers up with the badger brush and of course the smell is great too. Even with the cartridge razor, I got a much better shave than usual. Still managed to nick my neck because it was irritated from shaving 3 days in a row with cheap disposables. Plus I think I really need to work on going only with the grain around the the neck region. With the cheap disposable razors and canned cream I developed a bad habit of going across the grain around the neck because I use a straight downstroke all the way down my face. Not good.
I'm thinking about trying a DE wetshave for the first time tonight and will post feedback after that.
