So this past two weeks I have spent time on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for my annual two weeks of military. For the first time in a few years I bought a can of Barbasol and went to town with a Shick Hydro. After a week I started noticing the bumps that I always had pre-wet shaving. Well, usually I always use a cartridge to clean up after using a Schick injector. My conclusions are that while I still despise multi-blade cartridges, even though I use them for a touch up pass, it's really the can goo that is terrible for us or maybe just my skin. This morning I was back to using my injector and the Hyrdl for a touch up pass with Soap Commander Gusto and the results were fantastic. I can ready tell the difference from using can goo to a natural made soap. Also, I might have to move to the coast full time as I noticed the water there was super soft and did create some amaZing lather on my last day of shaving this morning.

If you want uber-soft water, you should consider Portland, Seattle or Vancouver (Canada). Biggrin

Barbasol has sls in it, which could have caused the bumps. I had to stop using shaving creams, face washes, and shampoos that contain sls. You might be able to use Nivea sensitive shaving cream in the can if you're in a hurry.

I was going to do a test soon. I haven't shaved with a cart or canned goo for years, not once. I was going to buy a fancy cart like the new Gillette and see if it made a difference factoring in a good lather, good pre shave routine and after care. Just for fun!

You'll be surprised Oli. I've been using a fusion with a Bolin Webb X1 and have been getting amazing shaves with ease and constancy with a good lather and beard mapping.

Go for it!

Why don't you try using the canned shave cream with your normal injector/hydro shave to see if it is in fact the barbasol or the fact that you aren't doing the main part of your shave with the hydro?

I've been saying that the canned goo is far worse than the multi-blade razors for years now.
