    Default New DE user!

    Hello ladies!

    My incredible partner gifted me an R89 Rose Gold Muhle a short while ago and since then I have never used a disposable razor again! If I had only known just how wonderful a shave you get with a DE, I would have switched a long time ago. I'm having fun experimenting with various soaps and creams as well as oils but at the moment my absolute favourite is the Avocado Shaving Cram from Taylor of Old Bond Street. I call it "the cream that keeps giving!" Not only do you need a tiny amount to build up a beautiful lather but it leaves my legs feeling incredibly soft and smooth. The smell is very discreet but I find it very soothing. I have what you'd call "trouble" legs- they have quite a few scars on them, are naturally very dry and can be quite sensitive. I have to say ever since shaving with my DE, I've noticed a big difference. My skin is definitely smoother and softer and the skin looks much more "calm" then before. There is no going back for me! Have any ladies out there tried a cream that they swear by?

    Happy Shaving!

    Welcome to SRP shavegirrl.
    Please do not hesitate to ask questions, we will try and help as best we can.

    DE shaving is a great start. I shave my armpits and ever since I switched to a DE razor from store bought 2+ blade cartridges I feel a lot better. I no longer find myself procrastinating due to razor bumps or itchiness several days after the shave.

    What a great and positive Post!! I got my Oldest Daughter and Wife started with DE and they both had similar results to yours... Never going back.

    My Wife really likes TOBS as well but I believe her current Fav is Caties Bubbles 'Two To Mango' and my daughter really (surprisingly) liked Soap Commander "Respect" which is a Lime/Patchouli dominant scent that I thought more "dude-ish" but she just really lked it.

    Both Soap Commander and Caties Bubbles are great soaps all around with as-good or better performance compared to TOBS. My Wife loves the TOBS 'Lemon-Lime' and 'Grapefruit' is second only to 'Sandalwood' (Classic Barbershop scent rather than Sandalwood-y) for my TOBS preferences.

    Welcome to SRP and enjoy the journey!!

    M'lady's technique and skin continue to improve with each shave. Her favourite cream to date is TOBS Avocado. Come to think of it, its one of mine too! With summer just around the corner we tend to turn to the citrus inspired creams and soaps. TOBS Grapefruit is next on our list! Can I be the 'guinea pig' for this one babe!
