I've had a buddy that's known for quite some time that I am really into wetshaving. He's never understood it, but appreciated my enthusiasm and even bought me some gear that he ran across. Thursday, out of nowhere, he asked me to shave him. He's not put a razor to his face since 2007 - only using trimmers to control his stubble.
So, I set him up in my tufted leather chair and proceeded.
C&E Nomad shave soap
Tech + Feather (I didn't feel comfortable enough to shave him with my straights)
Nomad Aftershave Balm
Result: DFS with 3 passes plus touch up. It was very nearly BBS, but I didn't push it since he hadn't had blade to face in so long. The whole way home (lives an hour's drive away) he was rubbing his face. This morning he called me and told me to buy him a kit with everything that he needed because he was still "faceturbating" (his words ).
At his request, I got him some Proraso in a tube, Proraso Pre/Post, Proraso AS, Saint Charles Shave Oakmoss Lavendula Aftershave... I had already given him a FlareTip and several blades to sample (Israelis, Feathers, and Derbies).
