Why Wet Shave I hear you ask?
There are numerous benefits to wet shaving not least of all that you’ll save a fortune on blades, you’re being kinder to your skin and you’ll feel like a total boss. Shaving doesn’t need to suck and it doesn’t need to be a morning chore.
Wet shaving came seem a daunting, expensive and time consuming exercise and you wouldn’t be wrong to think that. But if you do think that, you’re approaching it the wrong way.
Originally, men would have used a cut-throat style razor with a brush and cream to shave, that then evolved to a Double Edged Safety Razor with a brush and cream which then evolved to a cartridge razor with a can of shit foam which THEN evolved to an electric razor which meant you saved a heap of time and destroyed your skin with the end result of a nice patchy shave.
A cut-throat razor provides the best shave, end of. But a DE Safety Razor is a very close second. There’s an article on the site detailing the differences between a Safety Razor and a Cartridge Razor, give it a read.

I totally agree that wet shaving is nothing close to shaving with regular cartridge razors. Shaving with a DE safety or straight razor gets you the closest shave possible leaving your face absolutely smooth. Plus, you get a more traditional and manly experience.
