switching to an old fashioned shave routine has made it something I look forward to every morning instead of being a chore that I "have to do". It has become part of my morning ritual although I've never used a pre-shave oil. What does the pre-shave oil add to your shave?Yeah, for me, Feather blades win with Astra blades a very close second. Throw a hot, moist towel around my face, put on some pre-shave oil, mix my Proraso shave cream with a few drops of water, lather it up in a bowl with a badger hair brush, apply to face, slap a Feather blade on, when done wash with cold water and throw on some no-alcohol after shave balm from Proraso (I LOVE their products, lol) and boom...no razor burn. For someone who used to get it all the time, the time and effort put into wet shaving is totally worth it.
