This is what I believe.

Then the shave seems excellent.

Might be because it gives your skin time to relax and heal from the last shave. I know I find it's best I only shave every two days, if I try and shave two days in a row my second shave doesn't feel like it's done any good and my skin is more easily irritated.

The thing about the "blah" shaves, one of which prompted my original post here, is that they're not really awful; I like to think I have the experience now that I don't make the sort of mistakes I did when I was starting (bad irritation and burn, many nicks, tugging, etc.). Instead it's when a few things are off just enough that the whole doesn't add up to the sort of pleasurable experience we enjoy with wet shaving. Oddly, I find that more frustrating than the trouble I had when learning, because at least then I knew it was to be expected!
David : DE shaving since Nov 2014. Nowadays giving in to the single-edge siren call.
