  1. I don't post often but this was a big change for me so I thought I'd share. I began classic wet shaving about 6 months ago and it's the closest, smoothest, least irritating shave I've ever had by far. It requires an initial investment of money, mostly on a good badger brush, and it takes more time but I find it a soothing and enjoyable ritual. After the initial investment I believe it's cheaper than cartridges because the blades are cheaper, sharper, and last longer. I have to use a different

    I see a lot of improvement! Sorry, don't have any advice

    I started using 2 fingers of BP and for the first few days all was fine, then my face became irritated and I backed off and gradually built up to 2 fingers, and now I'm using 2 fingers twice a day each day. With BP applied my face is comfortable but after I wash I notice how dry my skin is using this much BP so I've begun using more Eucerin. I have this redish bare patch I don't know what else to call it on my right cheek. I don't know what to think of it it's like it's drier there and I'm mi

    Agreed, nice skin and a nice smile too. You're pretty with and without makeup.

    Day 78 front

    Thanks! You're making encouraging progress as well. If I put a finger's worth of AHA on [my oily face] twice a day my only discomfort is a slight stinging, some redness, and occasional dry spots to which I apply a small amount of Eucerin. I have to keep it further away from my eyes than BP. In general it seems like when I'm using AHA my face loses whiteheads quicker. Specifically when I stopped using AHA for about a month I didn't lose as many and the day after I began again 2 fell off but

    Day 87

    Funny I've been thinking about that. A few times recently I've added about half a finger to problem areas in the middle of the day. I'll start using 2 fingers of BP.

    I see one whitehead above my left eyebrow about ready to come out and fall off. There used to be a cluster of about 7 whiteheads around my left cheekbone one fell away a few weeks ago and another fell away a few days ago. There's a new spot on my forehead.

    Day 67 front

    Perceiving progress is kinda weird because the whiteheads I'm noticing become more pronounced over a period of many weeks before they eject as a little rock. Outdoor is makin' some progress. I'm in it for the long haul too. I'm not ready to perform surgery on the whitehead near my eye yet. I'd rather slowly encourage it to leave so I'm applying a little BP with my finger and waiting. I didn't end up trying the q-tip thing bc I'm a little lazy and bc after a thorough investigation I determ

    While camping I was unable to apply twice daily. I percieve a significant difference between one and two applications daily. Perhaps this is because I have oily skin If I apply twice daily I have to use moisturizer around my nose and under my eyes or those areas will get uncomfortably dry and scratchy. If I miss an application out of two the oilyness increases and I don't need to apply any moisturizer. In general I witness about 2 whiteheads oozing out of my face a week. Recently one whitehe
