Question for anyone who shaves with bar soap

Recommended Posts

I just started using a Sensor Excel thanks to some recommendations on this message board and it's been great.

I'm currently using Edge Ultra Sensitive Gel (I just finished my can of Aveeno gel and I can barely tell the difference between the 2).

I'm thinking of using a Dove sensitive skin bar as my shaving cream.

Would doing this increase my risk of razor burn and ingrown hairs?

Razor burn - yes. Ingrown hairs - possibly.

If you're going to shave with just soap (which really isn't recommended), I'd suggest that at the very least you take a warm shower beforehand to soften up the beard hairs. Then, get as nice a lather going as possible and shave using long strokes, but do not press down too hard on the razor! That may help with the razor burn, but you're much more likely to get burned using soap than gel.
