But any ways - I have started using a shaving brush (Crabtree & Evelyn Best Badger Brush), an old fashioned safety razor (1960's Gillette Slim Adjustable) and some wonderful shaving soaps, and creams. Gone is the blue goo, and the 3 razor blades tugging at my hairs. Now I have Almond, and Violet and other delicious scents in the morning, and I actually look forward to my shave, I even miss it on days when I don't get a chance. I originally started down this road because I figured that shaving soap would be more environmentally friendly. Then I found out that I got a better shave in the process.
This is just a note to all the men out there who dread shaving: "It doesn't have to be that way."
