I did try shave butter once, but it was translucent, so I couldnít tell where Iíd already shaved. Iíll stick with Barbasol shaving cream for now. I donít like that shaving gel business they started selling about 20 years ago, either.

Hmmm, I hadn't heard of shave butter before.  I wonder if you can cook with it...
You could try...

Itís a product that Dollar Shave Club sells and they sent me a free sample. The consistency is like a thin lotion.

Also, Iím old enough now that, when I go clean-shaven, I have to apply a moisturizer after I shave so I donít have dry skin flaking off my face.

Dollar Shave Club

Ah, the Dollar Shave Club.  Not my kind of thing.  I switched to more traditional shaving products because I was sick of spending so much money on cartridges and shaving goo.  I use a razor blade six times before putting it in the bin, and I shave roughly once every five days, so that works out to roughly one razor blade every 30 days.  Let's round up quite a bit and also account for the times I use a blade only once (on a trip), and say I use 20 razor blades a year.  I can buy them for about $20 per hundred, so that works out to my buying razor blades once every five years, at an average cost of $4 per year for blades.  A stick or Arko costs about $3 and can easily last me a year.  Long story short:  I have no need of a service that sends stuff to me once a month.

I ended up collecting a bunch and deactivating my account. That had to have been over a year ago. When I have a beard, I only shave once a week. When Iím clean-shaven, ideally three, but usually just two.

No need to worry about it till you get facial hair.
