Finally got a full week of BBS shaves.
Thanks to alot of reading on the boards and some trial and error I have had a full week of consistent baby butt smooth shaves this week. There are quite a number of things I am looking to try out but I fund a combination that works for me and love it.
• Merkur 38c
• Red Personnas (IP) - hand stropped prior to each shave (10x each side=40 total) I don't know where but I read this on a BB thread, I have used the same blade for about 8 shaves so far.
• Proraso SC - hand lather, no brush yet
• Technique - coming from disposables, this was tricky for me but getting the right angle and short strokes really paid off. I do two passes and a third for touch ups.
• Aqua Velva or Old Spice AS
I tried the Feathers and Derby blades but the red ip's just fit my face better. Two products I am eyeing are the TOBS Mr. Taylor cream and some Gillette 7 O'Clock blades. I'll probly start with a cheap brush later as I haven't researched them but am happy with my results so far. Cheers.
