    Thanks for the suggestion of Truefitt & Hill or GF Trumper. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.
    If youa re in a pinch and need to buy locally I rpefer the C.O. Bigelow stuff from Bath and Body Works, L'Occitane soaps or the Body Shop "croap". Or even the Vander Hagen puck someone else mentioned. those are everywhere. If you happen to have a barber supply store, proraso is good and cheap too.

    For mail order, I like Stirling, Razorock, and Caties Bubbles. I have some other random stuff too but since those are the ones I remember...

    Oh man, my face hates Proraso. Just goes to show that everybody's different. I see Proraso recommended a lot, but I get terrible razor burn when I use it.

    Forbsure. And lather method makes a difference. There are so many options though, I see no reason to work hard to make something work for you.

I think someone else posted another link as well. Once you buy a razor and a brush, you will only need to repurchase blades and soap from time to time. I buy 100 blades at a time and replace them every year or year and half. Soap usually last me about 6 - 9 months. Compared to those cartridges, replacement costs are significantly lower and justifies the entry cost, in my opinion.
    Yeah, it's no for-one-time-use thing. Take care and it will serve you for years!
