I suppose I should introduce myself. My name is Holly. First I would like to say that my shaving with a DE was NOT my idea. However, Iíve finally decided to admit it just might be better than what I was using.
My shaving snob of a husband has been nagging me to try a DE since I complain about my razors. On a personal pride note, I did resist for quite some time, though ultimately failed miserably. Because, here I am.
I dabbled now and then with his DE just to give it a shot to shut him up.
Tonight I had the house to myself and I decided to give it a fair chance, without him influencing my opinions. I made both a interesting and depressing discovery. I used his brush. The disturbing discovery was, I didnít like it. Doesnít seem like much of a discovery except that I actually had a preference for the brush he had me use before.
Realizing I prefer one of his crazy shaving products to the otherÖ that was when I knew that I was at least starting to like it. But, shhh, donít tell him. I donít think Iíll ever live it down. I do have to admit that it does work better, and I donít get all the things I hate about my four bladed razors.
I guess what Iíd like to know more than anything, is from women. I know there are women who shave with straights and DEs. I know what my husband does, and some of it just isnít for me. Besides while Iíve learned a lot from him and what heís learned, shaving your legs is a touch different. Nothing like standing in the shower with a razor in one hand, and your leg somewhere on the ceiling just to shave the back of your knees.
