    Tried the Fusion Proglide Power today.

    I really hate the way Gillette describe their Fusion razors as 'Manual' and 'Powered'. To me ALL razors, be they straight, DE, disposable, cartridge system etc are manual as it is YOUR HAND that guides the blade over the skin, not some electronic brain and auto gearbox in the razor that...

    Tried the Fusion Proglide Power today.

    To me, excess shaving cream is NOT an issue because I don't put an excess amount on my face in the first place. The single blade is for detail work, but I have had no reason to use it. My main razor is the Hydro3 which does the job well enough; hence me not buying any replacement blades for the...

    Tried the Fusion Proglide Power today.

    I tried the Fusion Proglide Power today and it gave an OK shave, but the vibration feature made it feel like I was dragging a block of cheese across my face and the shave quality was no better than my trusty Hydro 3 razor. I have some real reservations about Gillette's advertising. They claim...

    Thoughts on preventing the future demise of blade manufacturers

    I feel as long as there is a demand for DE blades, they will continue to remain in production.

    Who had a good shave today?

    I..... did. I used the Gillette Sensor3 system razor with the Geo F Trumper's coconut soap, followed by Gillette Aftershave Balm.

    Considering how much we love each other, its very unlikely that is going to happen.

    Just got my girlfriend into DE shaving!

    UPDATE, My girlfriend tried my HD Open Comb razor for the very first time and she is madly in love with it! Since I've decided to get the Slant Bar, I have told my girlfriend she can keep the Open Comb razor and she is extremely happy. Her legs don't suffer any more irritation or soreness and...

    Just got my girlfriend into DE shaving!

    My girlfriend was getting tired of irritation, dryness and soreness from the multiblade women's razors, so I suggested that she tries my Merkur HD Open Comb razor, and she found it a massive improvement! I have lent her my HD Open Comb razor for a week so she can give it a proper test run. I'll...

    Looking forward to visit Taylor of Old Bond Street tomorrow.

    The GFT Coconut Soap is WAY better than their Limes soap, but then again I have sensitive skin and the Limes soap is for more normal/oily skin. It felt like heaven when used with my Hydro 3 razor. I can't wait to try it with my Merkur Futur razor!

    Looking forward to visit Taylor of Old Bond Street tomorrow.

    I didn't actually go to Taylor Of Old Bond Street, I went to Geo F Trumper instead. Here is a pic of me standing outside Geo F Trumpers. All I purchased was the Geo F Trumper Coconut shaving soap refill, though I did look at a Slant Bar DE razor.

    My worst product is great

    My worst product that was great was a Gillette Blue 2 disposable razor that gave me a reasonable shave without any cuts.

    Looking forward to visit Taylor of Old Bond Street tomorrow.

    To reiterate I will get my girlfriend to take a couple of pictures on my cameraphone. Im not sure how you get pictures in the replys though. Can someone please tell me how to do that? I might also visit Carter And Bond in Westbourne Park which is where I work as a bus driver.

    Looking forward to visit Taylor of Old Bond Street tomorrow.

    I've asked my girlfriend really nicely and she will take a picture of me outside the shop. I want a new soap and Im going to see if they have the Merkur Slant Bar razor as well. Im particulary fortunate because Piccadilly Circus is just a bus ride from where I live.
