Nice! How is that TOBS treating you?

Bought the sampler off this guy's site: http://www.alsshaving.com

Seems like an individual guy that started his own business making shaving cream. Pretty cool.

The Palermo scent is really nice. It's like shaving in a pine forest.

I still like TOBS best, though. Leaning towards Almond being the best lately...

I received my razorock open comb in the mail the other day and have used it twice. Two of the best shaved I've had for a while. It's a little more aggressive than what I'm used to but it is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Pine forest? Sounds awesome.

I'm really happy with my TOBS as well. Don't know why I never bought it before.

Nice! Its a decent bang for the buck... I can't imagine spending more for soap/cream than that but I imagine I will sometime. Soap pucks last for half of forever so you forget what they cost...

I say this all while I've been using nothing but Arko for three weeks haha. $1.50 a stick and those last a long time!

TOBS never lets me down. Their scents are hit and miss, but it's always a great shave.

I'm going to pick up this Baker Street shaving soap soon. My obsession with Sherlock Holmes stories would lead me to buy it based on the name, even if it smelled like pond water and trout, but the bergamot seals the deal...

So I have a question that requires a bit of a background. I have terrible facial hair, my hair grows in fast at first and the stops growing at about an 1/8 of an inch. I can maybe get it to a quarter if I don't shave for a month, it's highly frustrating but I digress. I have sensitive skin and have tried various Gilletter etc type of razors from the 1-5 blades, tried them all. I've heard that wet shaving can help with folks who get razor burn/bumps super easy can anyone here corroborate that?

You will get a much better shave with a DE, than any cartridge. Soaps and Creams are much better than canned goo as well. Give it a try you won't be disappointed.

My wife got me a merkur for Christmas, and I love it! Using it is quite a learning curve, but I'm having a lot of fun. Still get razor burn a little, but I think I'm still pressing too hard and my lather needs some work. Already much better than my little electric shaver though.
