I have not used the Proraso cream yet. But it holds high value among users as a budget cream. Along with the Arko...! You can use DE blades 4-7 times (depending on the blade). Just wash it with hot water, after disengaging it completely from the DE razor mechanical. To be safe, you can dip it once in IPA or simple Dettol liquid...!^can you shed some light on proraso? because its available everywhere here in oz.
Also can you guys suggest me some medication/aftershave for my "extremely sensitive" skin? basically, I cant use regular bath soap because it makes skin dry and flaky. I have to apply aftershave almost everyday because I get zits which are probably caused due to razor rash. btw, I use straight edge razor because I dont want to use blades more than once (again infection)
I got it from Purplle.com. It works like this:How much and where did you buy it from ?
The shave is good, but learning takes a while. Dome local retail shops nay have cheap DE razors. 100 bucks or something. Blades are easily available. Online (good razors) will set you back 800-1000 almost. Better to practice on the Indian ones first.....!have been using mach3 +foam to shave all my life. heard these single blade shaves are better for skin and i do have acne sometimes too so it should help as well right ? hardly see these single blade razors anywhere now. anywhere online to order them ?
Strange, I find the single blades at many of the Kiranas as well as shops like Reliance, More etchave been using mach3 +foam to shave all my life. heard these single blade shaves are better for skin and i do have acne sometimes too so it should help as well right ? hardly see these single blade razors anywhere now. anywhere online to order them ?
i tried a plastic one as an experiment, i'm still using it today. works great with black platinums. And that's the key, cheaper blades require a heavier head to work. The sterling they sell here is very mild in terms of blade angle.Gillette, 7 o clock etc are the names you have to look out for.
The unfortunate thing is that the safety razor holder (1) will usually be plastic.
It will not lead to softer skin just by using a DE razor system. Basically the whole ecosystem composes of:so this leads to softer skin ? less irritation ? any single blade holder i range on around 200 rs. and are all blades equal ? like which ones to get ? the links posted are of foreign websites. i need those that deliver in india
You could try aloe vera gel by a brand called green leaf. They recommend it for sun burn but i don't see why it would not work as a shave balm. You can get a 125gm jar for under Rs.100.i hav tht nivea after shave balm that i got wth the foam but i dont use it. i prefer a oil free moisturiser from neutrogena tht doesnt clog pores.
They don't sell any i've seen locally. Did you try with black platinums.Guys...
Any pointouts for getting single edge blades for shavettes?
(The same you get by breaking a double edge ones..)
They were cheap in UK compared to breaking a DE one..
This one, that would make it around Rs.800BTW I use a Bluebeard revenge shavette..
You have more control over blade angle, so it will cut closer for sure. More skin stretching required. The straight edge board is amazing when it comes to knowledge, these guys really know their stuff.Believe me.. once you use a shavette/single edge shave even DErazor feels unsatisfactory..
I have been using this for the past week. It is for RS. 180/120ml. Biotique Wild Grass - AS Gel. It is quite cooling and harnesses the irritation to zero...!You could try aloe vera gel by a brand called green leaf.

Did not mention it because he says his skin is irritated, there is a little sting with the bio grass which is nice and great on a hot day. This is the only non oil based gel i've found locally.I have been using this for the past week. It is for RS. 180/120ml. Biotique Wild Grass - AS Gel.
