Absolutely, Sock, therapeutic! Many days I do a quick once over with my electric, then clean it up in the shower with a cartridge razor. But like this morning, after shower, I used my DE and soap/brush. Also hadn't shaved my face for a few days. I took all the time I needed to get head/face BBS. My head is super tan already, and I think it looks great.
On a side note, I went to Wal-Mart looking for a matte finish moisturizer, and must have looked at 100 moisturizers, non with matte finish. Anyone know of a local place to buy matte stuff?
