YMMV.

Experiment.

Find what works for you.

Experiment more.

Enjoy the journey.

Make mistakes, and learn from them.

Keep experimenting.

High end and bargain bin can be just as good.

Try a new soap / blade / brush / razor.

Try your very first soap / blade / brush / razor again.

Embrace your Acquisition Disorders - within reason.

Shaving is most enjoyable when it is about the process, not the goal.

After two years with only 2 razors and 2 creams, my AD's have begun to take over.

I only disagree with Hans on one thing. It's not a hobby, it's a way of life.

I like this. I however went a little overboard with the Acquisition Disorder and now probably have enough soaps to last a lifetimeSmile Blades however is another story, so that might become my new acquisition disorder.

Summarized my thoughts perfectly, well detailed.

But, I do not consider it a hobby, as Johnny stated. It is a passionate daily ritual that gives me a boost of comfort and pleasure, with which I start my day.

Happy Shaving. Sam.

I have been traditionally wet shaving several years now, it is so much fun to shave. To experiment with blade/ razor combos. To use different sizes, types of brushes. Endless amount of soaps or creams to use. I have discovered splashes and balms enjoy the various scents.

Above all this my face feels great and looks very healthy. It is a journey that is so enjoyable.

Wegan Warrior thanks for a great post.
