I recently got a sample of the following products from King of Shaves:
After applying the pre-shave oil, I put the gel into a bowl and mixed it with water. It was pretty nice- felt great on my skin. I did my first pass with the Long Handle Classic Merkur and rinsed for my second pass. I hesitated to use the brush again, and wanted to try it with my hands. It went on BETTER than with the brush and shaved EXTREMELY well with NO RAZOR DRAG.
This is by the BEST product Iíve used since wetshaving, but Iím wondering why no brush? I have problem-prone skin, and right now if this works best for me (Iím going to try it for 2 weeks to make sure- no brush) is it a bad thing?
I still love the LHC, and could never go back to my Sensor or Mach3.
I even finished up with a new after-shave:
Iím a big fan of the white lotion, and wanted to try this one, as I have seen it in my dad's medicine cabinet for years. It, too, felt very nice on the skin.
These two new products will only prove themselves after a few days. If things improve with my skin (less acne, razor irritation) then Iím sold. I will also add that out of the 3 blades Iíve tried (Swedish Gillette, Derby, and Israeli) that the Gillette is the best for my face. I REALLY like it.
Any thoughts, comments? Thanks-
