To get the perfect double edge shave, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare your skin by washing your face with warm water to open up your pores and soften your hair.
  2. Apply a pre-shave oil, cream, or soap to lubricate and protect your skin.
  3. Use a sharp, clean double edge razor blade to shave in the direction of hair growth, using no to light pressure.
  4. Rinse your face with cold water to close your pores and reduce inflammation.
  5. Apply a soothing aftershave balm or lotion to moisturize and protect your skin.
  6. Repeat the above steps every other day to maintain a smooth, irritation-free shave.

It's also good to note that you should use a good quality brush and shaving cream, angle your razor at 30 degree and use short stroke. Also, having a routine and sticking to it is important.

The Cost of Double Edge Razor Blades

The cost of double edge razor blades can vary widely depending on the factors we discussed above. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect to pay:

  • Lower-priced blades: You can find packs of 10 to 100 lower-priced double edge razor blades for as little as $5 to $10. These blades may be made with lower-quality steel and may not provide as close or comfortable a shave as higher-priced blades.
  • Mid-priced blades: Mid-priced blades are generally made with higher-quality steel and may come in larger quantities, resulting in a lower cost per blade. You can find packs of 50 to 100 mid-priced blades for around $15 to $25.
  • Higher-priced blades: Higher-priced blades are typically made with the highest-quality steel, and may come with additional coatings or treatments to improve durability and sharpness. You can expect to pay around $20 to $50 for a pack of 50 to 100 higher-priced blades.

Creating the Perfect Lather

Now that you have your shaving soap, it's time to create the perfect lather. Follow these steps to create a rich, thick lather that will provide the perfect surface for your razor:

  1. Wet your brush: Before you start lathering, wet your shaving brush with warm water. This will help soften the bristles and prepare the brush for lathering.
  2. Load the brush: Swirl your brush over the Shaving Soap in a circular motion until the bristles are fully loaded with soap. Don't be afraid to use a little elbow grease here to really work the soap into the brush.
  3. Add water: With the soap loaded onto the brush, add a small amount of water to the brush. You want to add just enough water to start creating a lather, but not so much that the lather becomes too thin.
  4. Lather up: Using circular motions, work the brush over your face to create a thick, creamy lather. Be sure to apply the lather evenly to all areas that you'll be shaving.
  5. Reapply as needed: As you shave, you may need to reapply lather to certain areas. If you find that the lather has thinned out, simply go back to step 3 and add a little more water to the brush.
