Review of Ritual Razor Rinse
Day two in our look at products from Ritual, and we're focusing on Ritual Razor Rinse, another product we wrote about a while back and have finally had the opportunity to use.
Here's the deal - you've taken a hot shower so your pores are wide open. Your skin is at its most vulnerable. And you're about to treat it to a razor which has been sitting around for a day with who knows what growing on it. Hey, there's a reason doctors sterilize their tools before using them, and maybe you should too.
Ritual Razor Rinse is largely alcohol, with a dose of tea tree oil and some lemony scent to cut any harshness. Also, it's more of a gel than liquid, so you can squeeze a little on the head of your razor and then carefully work it around with your fingers to cover the entire surface. Then, when you're ready to shave, rinse under hot water and away you go.
So does it work? Hard to say exactly, but I think the answer is yes. I seemed to have less red bumps and break out after using it. Also, dermatologist Howard Fein endorses it, so you know it's got to be good. I'd definitely give it a try if you've got sensitive skin and are looking for ways to reduce flair-up from shaving.
Ritual's Razor Rinse is $17 for a 4oz. tube.

Russel... sorry for invading your post, but I'd like to know if there is any way to contact you different from comments (forum, email, something :s). Your reviews are awesome, but I still don't know what's the best of the best. You say good things about many products, but if you could please tell me which is the best of the best (pre-shave, shave, after-shave, etc.).
About this review... I use a Merkur "Hefty Classic" Safety Razor, and I use the method Bob mentioned. If you think using Ritual Razor Rinse offers better "something?", please also let me know.
Thanks in advance.
