  1. Didn't get any lord blades in my sample. Looking into the bigger sample packs on eBay (with the Gillette, Big Ben, shark blades etc) just to try out differnt blades.


    Mine came with mekur, feather, persona, Astra & derby. Yet to try derby


    The $30/100 feather blades sounds good, makes it shitloads cheaper than the cartridges. Makes you wonder how the f**kers can charge so much for the multi blade replacements

  2. Hahahahaha - reminds me of the stories of guys using hair removal cream on their sack and date and leaving it on a tad too long


    Second shave in - better than the first, nowhere near as much burning afterwards. Only did 2 passes, previous shave did 3 (probably why my face felt like satan had wiped his balls across it)


    Less irritation this round which is promising. Next shave will be swapping blades to try and different type

  3. Thanks for the tips lads


    Edit: Just had my first taste of de shaving - few red specks peppered across my face, mainly along the jaw line - which I think was from my lather on the second pass not being that good, my huge Adam's apple survived unscathed surprisingly as that's where I thought the most damage would be done.


    Face burnt like mad after a splash of tea tree oil..


    All in all not too shabby - plenty to work on but haha. I do like the cool feeling of the eucalyptus cream after you've made a pass

  4. stand arrived today. grabbed one from the shave shed for $29 posted. sturdy little stand - was thinking it was possibly going to be a flimsy bit of metal but seems alright.


    but here's my kit - purchased the standard wet shaving kit, chose the eucalyptus cream and got given a sample of sandalwood thrown in and had a big arse black mug in the cupboard so i'll be using that for the lathering

    oh another quick question. do you guys keep the blade in the razor? or take them out each time? i know they've been coated with anti corrosion, just wanted to double check.
