    Update: I shaved the old-school safety razor way, with Proraso cream and the badger brush, for over a full year until I had worked through all my blades. I then reverted back to my Gillette Mach 3 and Barbasol shave cream from a can. The old-school way simply didn't add enough value to be worth the time/hassle.

    The only thing I kept is the brush which I use to brush on the shave cream from the can. Oh yeah, I also kept using the Clubman aftershave. I like the way it smells and my wife does to.

    I do Dollar Shave Club - 4 blades (triple) every two months. I use Kirk's Castile soap as my lube.

    I'm not sure that I want to hear about my imaginary CS friends' preferred lubricants.

    Is a safety razor any slower than the Mach 3?

    For me, yes. I usually had to do a two-pass shave with a safety razor to get what I felt was equivalent to the Mach 3 shave. Your mileage may vary.

    Surprised you didn't have to do a three-pass to equal the number of Mach 3 blades.

    I order cartridges from Dorco. Super cheap, there's always a discount code. I use the C.O. Bigelow cream from Bath and Body Works. It's Proraso. When I'm in a hurry I use my Braun 7 series. I don't have much to shave. Asian genetics are strong.

    Maybe an admin will merge the other thread into this thread?

    This thread could have a broader discussion.

    I know I am getting old because my eyebrows are getting bigger and out of control. How am I to manage these caterpillars?

    What about the cream and brush takes too much time? Seems like the safety razor would be your major time killer in that line up.

    Also, I hate shave gel. So hard to get it to lather up. You have to waste a ton of it just to get good coverage. That is, until I used some in my old school bowl and brush. Lathered right up and used a lot less of the gel to get there. Still don't like the gel, though.

    My Wahl trimmers came with an eyebrow attachment. Works well.

    I use a combo of that old school shaving paste that smells bad that they use in barbershops and a Mach 3. Works like a charm!

    If you know what you are doing, a double edged safety razor doesn't really take much time and certainly not a lot more time than a cartridge razor.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    How does your significant other feel about your choice of shaving paste?

    No idea. The smell doesn't seem to really linger. You know the stuff I'm talking about? Proraso or something?

    I don't know it. I haven't put a blade to my chin in many moons.

    Mach 5 from Costco. Expensive, but they work great and I am too lazy to find an alternative.

    Same. Really canít get behind the weirdos trying to make shaving into some kind of religious experience.

    Safety razor (not straight razor). It's roughly the same as the multi-blade Gillette stuff.

    I'm with you on gels. Give Harry's a try as a backup. It really lathers up. Good stuff.

    I miss the sideburn trimmer on the Mach 5, but the blades are about 8x more than what I pay now.
