    youngunn Where's my TSD aftershave balm???

    Like the title says, what did your last shave teach you or make you realize?

    Did you discover you really like a product you hadn't used in forever, or that you can't stand a blade, or that your technique sucks? Lol

    Post em up!

    Even at my age I still get whiteheads every now and then and the razor reminds me of it before I know it is there.

    If one has managed to get a large spider bite on one's neck, one shouldn't simply lather and shave over it…..:signs131:

    That my new Ball End Tech is a great shave, a little more aggressive than my SuperSpeed, but a great shave

    I learnt that stopping a straight razor was not the rocket science requiring skill I had feared it would be :) Took me quite some time as I went real slow - but I rather enjoyed the process. X-pattern for the win!

    I learned by the third shave, Pol-Silver Super Iridium razor blades are toast... YMMV. :shaver

    It's so funny how YMMV works - I personally really like them :)

    Don't get me wrong... I like them, but it seems like this third shave ended with more razor rash today than before... maybe it was the shaving cream that was the culprit though, now that I think of it. (Godrey)

    BTW, I enjoyed hearing you mentioned on Brush & Soap & Blade podcast this week! Congrats!

    This morning.

    Using stuff that I haven't used in forever is a SIN.

    I hadn't used my Tech since last winter....... And it delivered the mild touch up shave I desired.

    I learnt that my Omega 49 boar and I need some more get-to-know-you time. It doesnt hold the lather like my badgers. Pass two with my Super Adjustable was on the edge of uncomfortable, and pass three punished me a little. I face lathered and was able to build a great lather initially, but the reserves werent there for subsequent passes.

    I learnt that I probably wont bother sneaking a DE with blades on a plane because the Gillette Guard does a wonderful job on the go.
