Our great-grandfathers really had it right. When they shaved they applied think, warm lather to their faces and then used a sharp razor to gently remove their beards. The result was an exceptionally close shave, without skin irritation or ingrown hairs.
Nearly a century later, with the advent of "modern convenience," we have come to accept "foam in a can" as an acceptable substitute. The result is an inferior shave and skin irritation.
There is simply no substiute for a shaving brush and warm lather. The brush lifts the beard and exfoliates; the lather reduces the friction between the blade and the skin.
Now we can have the same experience of our great-grandfathers - a close comfortable shave which we will anticipate instead of dread.
