I've always shaved with, then against the grain. I also find it helps to hold a hot face cloth on the area I'm going to share. I do one cheek, then the other, followed by my neck. The hot cloth is supposed to open the pores or something; i notice a difference and get a better share.

Does anyone still make those shaving cream heaters/dispensers that were somewhat popular a while ago?

I remember listening to that bit on my Dad's Bill Cosby records from the 60s. "Now let's go get us some women!"

I have solved my shaving woes. I have been shaving during the middle of a hot shower for the past month or so and have been getting the best (closest) shaves of my life with no irritation.

I shave the face after I have been in there for a few minutes and after at least I have washed my face with soap and hot water. At this point the skin is nicely lubricated from all that hot water and steam.

What I have experienced is the advantages of shaving cream are less when the blades are new with the hot shower technique. You can pretty much shave without because the skin is so nicely lubricated from all that steam and water.

This method has been giving me the most consistent shaves I have ever had and it does not take any longer than the previous method I was using.

I'll have to buy one of those steam-free mirrors and try it!

I always shave after a shower and use a pre shave cream. Now my son is using a double edge razor. He tells me it is the first time in his life he's not getting razor burn and irritation.
