Have you tried a safety razor? The blades are dirt cheap compared to the cartridge blades and I am finding that with time and patience I am getting a much
closer shave then I ever did with my Fusion or any other similar razor. There is definitely more to it than just running the blade over your face so you do have to concentrate (blade angle is very important), but the closeness is unparalleled if done right. When I have done it right then I can run my fingers against the grain on my sideburns and not feel a thing. I never got that close with my Fusion. The Fusion did a really good job, but just could not get as close as my safety razor is getting.
Tomorrow my shaving brush and cream should arrive. It is perfect timing too as I think the cream part of the process will add even more time to my shave. I will get it tomorrow and Sat, when I have as much time as I need, I can try it out and see what kind of difference that makes.
