I have been lurking for a few weeks and I am going to order my first DE soon. I did shave with my Gillette Sensor today using shaving soap on my hands and it made a big difference on the closeness of the shave.
In the past I had been bothered by razor bumps and ingrown hairs. I found that using an Alpha Hydroxy serum worked wonders at keeping these at bay. Should I continue using it when I start with the DE razor.
Also, where can you go to buy and smell the shaving soaps and after shave lotions? Have note been able to find any where local in Richmond, VA.
