As a DE devotee, it might be regarded as a heresy to return to a cartridge blade. I decided today in another rush, to grab a Wilkinson Hydro 5 razor. Learning from previous experience I painted on a thin layer of Mr Taylor cream lather and very lightly ran the blade over my face for a very quick three pass shave. I really didn't feel I was taking anything off. But after applying my balm I discovered I had given myself a very close comfortable shave. I'm not returning to cartridge razors any time soon, but it's not difficult to understand their continuing popularity among general shavers.
It made a change.

I rushed my shave a bit this morning. I face lathered but didn't spend as much time on it as usual. I settled for a relatively thin layer of lather for each pass. The result? A very good shave - nice and smooth. A nice thick layer of lather is pleasing to make but it's not essential - certainly not for me with my DE razor.
