If you have sensitive skin, go with just about anything from the Proraso line.

I'm sure a slant is worth a try. The iKon slant will be a good bit pricier than the current Merkur options.

The Italian Soft Soaps all give me great lather; plenty of cushion with great glide.

I hope it won't break the bank for a slant head well have to wait and see and I'd figure I'd just get some creams instead

The way I see it, if you just go with one you'll never know if the other would fix your trouble... so go for both the slant and the creams Tongue

I'm very happy with my Merkur 39C Slant - hefty and long handled German engineering - but equally happy with my somewhat milder Bakelite Slant... weither I use them with Proraso cream or any of my other soaps.

I have a vintage Merkur slant and I will say that the Merkur razors in general are very forgiving, yet efficient. The slant takes that to a new level being very efficient and easy to use.

T&H has a sample pack. Trumpers does too. Personally I prefer the T&H scents. Both inexpensive and worth a try. FYI the sample packs also include aftershave, and my T&H pack included their preshave.

KMF makes nice creams and you should be able to find them at a local store.

The Real Shaving Company creams are made by the same company that makes most English creams (T&H, GFT, TOBS) and can be found at a number of local drugstores. I liked one of the scents, the other I didn't care for. It is inexpensive and worth a shot; at least open the tube to see if you like the scent Blush

As a fellow sensitive skin sufferer, I heartily suggest the Proraso sensitive line. Excellent stuff!
