Hi everyone, a bit of a late introduction, but here goes..I'm from the U.K, and I've been 'seriously' wet shaving for about 10 years. I love shaving with a straight, there really is nothing like it, but it's not something I'll do if I'm feeling rushed, so I mainly DE shave due to the  fact that it's a little more straight forward, and save the str8's for 'zen time'.  Like many, I used to buy just about every soap going, and I've had some fantastic shaves with some of the most amazing lathers, but never realised why my face would feel so hit or miss, until I tried Mike's Natural Soaps, and the penny dropped. So now, I only use a couple of soaps that I know suit my face, and the rest get thrown into a 'Frankensoap' for my head. Like I always say, shaving should be enjoyed, not endured. Likewise with A/S.. now it's a splash of witch hazel, followed by a tiny dab of jojoba oil, if I really need it. I guess experience teaches you that less is in fact more. Still, I do like to try new soaps, and blades, and razors, and brushes... oh heck, does it ever end? Anyway, it's a pleasure to be here, and hopefully I can offer some helpful info, now and again, and I hope to pick up some tips for myself.. well, you never stop learning, do you?

Better late than never, but I think seven threads, 140 posts and close to four years is a new record Tongue
