How I Transitioned From a Multi-Blade to Double Edge Safety Razor

Last year, I decided to transition from a multi-blade razor to a double edge safety razor. In fact, it was a much longer process than I could have imagined. After 20+ years of shaving, I would like to share my transition over the last year. Before I could transition, I needed to think about what was most important to me when it came to shaving. Was it my skin appearance? Was it the closeness of my shave? Was it how much time it takes to shave? Was it about avoiding Razor bumps? Was it the quality of the handles, razors, shaving cream and or aftershave? All of these questions I took into consideration. I’ll never forget my first true shave.

The Difference Between Alcohol and Moisturizer Based Aftershaves

Often times, a man’s shaving routine will consist of lathering their face with pre-shave lotion and carefully shaving one’s facial hair. After getting the last of their facial hairs, men tend to use a splash of alcohol-based aftershave to finish things off. What your skin really desires though is moisture, so using these alcohol-based aftershaves aren’t the best bet for your skin. Splashing on different types of alcohol-based aftershaves lack the hydration your skin really needs. Why do we even use aftershaves? An aftershave is a type of liquid that contains antiseptic agents and is meant to prevent infections that might arise from cuts made by the razor. A good aftershave however does much more than just prevent infections. People who use higher quality moisturizer-based aftershaves appreciate the feeling of comfort as well as the prevention of infections. With all of the different aftershaves in the market, how do you determine…
