i've been lurking for a little while and last night had my first shave with my gillette slim/derby blade. as i don't have a brush i just used regular edge gel shaving creme. the shave was nice but i definitely have a bit of razor burn. nothing visible but i have felt it all day. i assume this will go away as my technique improves and i guess i have 2 questions.
1: will a brush and some real shave soap make a BIG improvement? money is very tight.
2: should i hold off on shaving tonight and will shaving just make this burn fell worse?
