I was saying that to myself this morning. Good catch, Charlie Smile

All good repies, but this is the one I’m most interested to try. Smile

After a rough shave (or a couple) I go to my “rescue” setting:

Blackbird SB with a fresh Gillette Nacet
Nuavia Rosa
Paladin Falstaff
ABC aftershave balm

One thing that seems to work for me really well is to substantially change what I'm using - particularly the razor - to something I haven't used in a long time. I find that I have to pay extra attention to what I'm doing, so my technique is much better.

Good advice, bad shave or good shave.

I’ve reduced my gear down to what works well every time. Every once and a while, I’ll pull a bum blade - but you can usually tell on the first pass and rescue the shave. Still, what leads me to a rough shave: too much pressure, soap that just isn’t protective enough, shaving too often, or rushing while loading/making lather.

I get back to the basics: angle, pressure and beard reduction.  I also find that if you frequently experient with different gear, getting back to what you know works for you can be good.
