My nephew is starting to shave and is having terrible break outs. He was telling me how much burn he had shaving the little stubble he has with a cart. This is the setup we found at the Walgreen's around the corner from their house. Have a DE I'm going to send to him shortly. Since we're a few states away, I wanted to be sure to help him while I was there for a few days!

Gotta get him setup right!

Cool! Very similar gear to what I started with.

It's great that he has such a great uncle! It would be better if instruction could be in person, but with the 'net it can still be fairly personal. There are all sorts of youtube videos that demonstrate proper technique, and those that don't.

We can help too if you'll allow us. Why not have him join? Everything I've seen on this forum tells me that it's decidedly PG rated. Kinda like the old gents in the barbershop when I was child. They sat around and looked out for the kid. OK, that'd be me.

Thanks! I've got him subscribed to some YouTube channels and on a few Facebook groups. Hoping he'll get the desire to keep it up and find it enjoyable!

That's great! If he still has break-outs, have him try some of the better essential-oil shave soaps out there (Mike's, B&M, LA Shaving, etc.).

Good for you. Thirteen is an early age to start. More important things than learning how to shave. Like learning how to like girls.
