Overlooked Nemesis: Hard Water

Email Print PDF

I have always been focused on the quality of the product, and never much considered the influence of the quality of the water on my shave. While I never had problems with my shaves, certain products that I’ve read other people rave about never performed well for me.

Tired of the limescale buildup and dry skin that our family was experiencing, my wife and I invested in a Culligan water softener and carbon filter system. Aside from the obvious benefits in that my shower head is clean, my dishes aren’t murky, and my clothes are softer, I have better enjoyed my shaving products. Some products work really well, and some of my favorites work even better.

If you are looking for information on wet shaving, you'll find it online. There are many new blogs and forums that offer advice and product reviews. A newbie to wet shaving can find everything from shaving videos, demonstrations, restoration projects, and product discussions in various videos on these sites. Many of these sites, like Shaving 101, are personal sites, where men share their likes and dislikes of their favorite shaving products. And some blogs are parts of commercial sites that offer shaving product promotions and information about newly released products.
