Note: this was supposed to be published a while back. I just now realized it didn't go up, so bear in mind that this is an older post.
My first wet shave was a little over two weeks ago. I had to use Edge Gel since it was all I had at the time. The brush arrived later.
My 40s Super Speed and a Dorco blade were my weapon of choice. I followed The Routine, and it was one of the best shaves I've ever had. A minor nick or two, nothing major.
I must admit, though, using the styptic pencil on a nick is akin to holding a lit match to your face.
