Shaving used to be a chore - slap on some shave oil, grab the Fusion with $4 cartridge, and have a WTG, rough shave to avoid irritation. Shaving my head was a little more tedious, and wore down the cartridges quicker. It was getting expensive for something I wasn't enjoying.

I found out about traditional wet shaving a month ago, and lurked the subreddits. I did some research and bought my first kit (MR18C, Omega S-brush, Soap Commander Integrity). Now I have soap samples and aftershaves incoming. I also have a Gem G-bar on the way to give an SE a whirl. And a TGC synthetic because of the Bullgoose sale.

It's still expensive, but now I look forward to my next shave!

- Phil
