Hello guys,

I was a wet shaver for 2 years and find it extremely frustrated with the trouble of having to look for shaving products overseas. Now I took it upon myself to bringing in old school shaving products to make this shaving culture a norm.

My store can be found in Shopee and Lazada but currently most of the stuff are available through shopee. Link at Shopee Link

We now stock Proraso, Cella , Haslinger for shaving soaps
Fatip,Parker,TGS,Razorock for shaving Razor, Rockwell is on the way.
Omega brush are on the way.
Also have various razor blades to choose from, my favourite being the wilkinson sword from Germany.

Really love to hear you guys shaving experience!

Is there a place to buy good safety razors at walk-in stores around? I just went to find some at a guardian and a pharmacy but couldn't find one. Is buying online the only way to go? something around Rm 30-50.

Shaving soap like all soap actually strips alot of moisture from your skin, not to mention the act of shaving also scrape alot of moisture and irritates the skin, can try to avoid the soap to be lather on your lips or apply moisturizer or aftershave balm after shaving.

Never really encounter that before,maybe you should whip the soap to a thicker lather? The lather will usually stick onto the razor like glue.

There are plenty of choice at that price range especially those from China, just make sure don't get plastic ones and also take note on the weight of the razor, a good safety razor should have some weight as wet shaving usually don't have to use pressure at all and let the razor do its job.

This is an adjustable DE razor with good weight, it's a copy of an design that originated in Germany (the patent must have expired), if you look around online they are available from multiple sellers and in sets with various stands.

If you look in this thread for postings around July 2019 you will see some discussion on this type of handle. My post was deleted for some reason (I wonder why the mod didn't like it?).

Just bought some cheap gillette plastic safety razor to try for fun and I accidentally cut my finger trying to put the blade in. Great. Is there any dull part of the blade I should be holding instead?

The sides and the flat edges.

But even if you hold it by the blade edges, unless you are using a lot of pressure or slide your finger along its length, you should normally be able to handle it without cutting yourself.

you mean these two parts here? It was my first time using safety razors and I was frustrated that I couldn't get the blades in place because it kept bouncing off after I let go of my hand

That razor is not bad for beginners especially it has good weight and grip. Miles better than plastic DE razor, will be better to buy this than spoil your experience getting cheap plastic DE razor.
