I shaved in the shower today with the Merkur, a lightly used Derby Extra, and no other shaving products. I had washed my face with a gentle face soap in the shower just before shaving, but did no other preparation. I got a super-close shave after going over the same areas a few times and my face feels great. I hadn't shaved in about two and a half days, so I had a fair amount of hair. Maybe in a day or two, I'll feel like my skin got too dry or that I took off too much skin to do it regularly that way. For now, though, it feels really good.
The constant bombardment of hot water seems to work as well as any shaving cream. I have very hard water, if it matters.
