While most men continue to struggle with the pain and irritation of shaving with cheap cartridge razors or disposables, real men shave wet. In the past, basically all men were wet shavers, as this was the only option—either that or grow a cool, 1800’s style beard, or better yet, muttonchops! Then came the convenience of disposable safety razors and suddenly everything changed.
Years later, Gillette further revolutionized the shaving world with the Mach 3, the world’s first three blade shaver! And since then, men’s faces have never been the same again. Well, at least those men who fall for those marketing gimmicks that tell you more blades equals a better, closer shave. Stop being a slave to the throwaway, disposable or cartridge razor system. Break the chains and release your face from the torture and oppression that those inferior quality razors and canned creams are causing.
The time is here to take a stand against all this so-called “revolutionary” new shaving technology and realize that newer and more don’t necessarily equal better. So jump on board and get yourself one of the best safety razors or straight razors, some quality DE blades, one of the top shaving brushes, and a real mans shaving cream or best shaving soap. When it comes to your face, the old school method described in Prim&Prep’s beginner’s guide to wet shaving infographic really is the way to go.
