I don't use a straight (yet) as that would require a small investment in upkeep stuff lol. I use this as my daily razor with a couple others I switch out:
My shaves do last longer certainly. Before I'd have actual 5 o'clock shadow using a Mach 3, but now it wouldn't be terribly noticeable until around 2-3pm the following day.
Everyone reacts differently to different kinds of shaving methods.
As some have mentioned: Don't put too much pressure on your skin while shaving.
I gave up on mine after a while and got this Muhle Safety Razor with an additional 100 blades (which are dirt cheap) and I consider it money well spent.
Now I just use it to clean up around my beard, you don't even need any shaving cream.
If it doesn't work out for you change your system.
That is a very fine choice for a great price! Personally, I went with something slightly more high-end because I knew that it would likely be the only razor I will purchase for many years to come, so spending a bit more was justified to me.
Compared to buying Dorco blades (that DSC essentially just resells themselves) or doing safety razor blades.
Safety razors have a higher upfront cost, but a low maintenance fee.

It's a bit pricey, but looks and works well.
For $10, I can get 100 blades. These blades, admittedly are mid-range and not incredible. However, I no longer have to "baby" my razor blades. Roughly every week, I just recycle my blade (it's stainless steel) and pop the next one in. That means for $10, I can shave for 2 years.
As for cream - I bought this last fall:
and am almost halfway through.
