Hi all, Jim here.

I've been wet shaving for 8 or 9 months now & loving it. I see it as a kind of meditation, requiring enough concentration that the mind doesn't have room for problems. With a bit of added decadence.

My skin is a bit of a problem, I have rosacea (on the cheeks) and psoriasis (not on the face, fortunately, but it does make my skin generally more susceptible to inflammation). I had some problems with blotches & rashes when I first started wet shaving, but I've since adjusted my habits (including some non-shaving-related ones) and my shaving products. Now, my skin is doing better than it was when I started.

I started with an Edwin Jagger Kelvin, switched to an Ikon Shavecraft 102 about 3 months ago, & have just switched back to the EJ (liked the closer shave, not so much the high risk of razor burn). I'm a big fan of synthetic brushes (RasoRock Plissoft, currently).

Welcome to DFS! Lots of us have extremely sensitive skin, so perhaps we could be of help to each other.
