Impression

First shave with a safety razor following a succession of bad shaves with a cartridge razor.

Despite four days of growth and a face full of cartridge razor rash, ingrowers and blotchiness, the shave was smooth although not especially close (in this case, a good thing given the condition of the skin) and not irritated; quite the contrary, I believe this shave permitted more rapid healing.
