Barbasol works well. I think that when we go back to it, we are more relieved than anything else that it didn't lead to mild carnage. I do go back to it occasionally and enjoy it. Then I return to my brush and cream and there is no comparison.
It definitely helps to rub it in well to work out...
Since I only shave M-W-F, today marks the last shave of the month for my 1970 P4 Gillette Super Stainless. Shave #12.
The best thing about these vintage blades is that they degrade slowly and gracefully. This week's shaves showed the start of a decline in sharpness. A touch less comfortable...
Shave #10 today with the 1970 P4 Gillette Super Stainless, still residing in a '47 Aristocrat.
The ATG pass is getting a bit rough, but still a nice result. Only one more to go before I close out this month.
Fat Boys are desired by some shavers and are collectible, so they can be priced and sell on the high side, especially when the hype is running high.
When I first got into DE shaving many moons ago, someone had said that Gillette Super Speed TV Specials were the best shavers out of all the Super...
My sincere condolences to you. I am impressed that you reached out at a time when it is so easy to withdraw.
I am also impressed (again) at how the members here have responded to you. This is a great forum and community. I hope it continues to be a source of comfort and support as you deal...
Regular for me. Works just fine and I enjoy the classic scent.
I really liked the Yellow Conditioning, but haven't seen it on the shelves in a looong time, and I've moved a lot over the past few years. I'm too cheap to purchase it online.
Today was shave #6 with the 1970 P4 Gillette Super Stainless blade. This time, loaded in a '69 Gillette Super Adjustable (Black Beauty). I started on setting 4 and went to 5 for the final (ATG) pass.
I use these blades sparingly, so this is the perfect occasion:c2:
Holy Thread Resurrection, Batman!!:eek2:
I bought a large bottle of glycerin at a CVS or Walgreens years ago and it's still 90% full. Lately, I've been adding it to Thayer's Facial Toner. Makes a great, non-greasy winter moisturizer.
Over time, I've come to prefer lighter razors. I find that heavier razors require more effort to maneuver. Thicker handles are also preferable to me.
The benchmark for me (and my favorite overall razor) is the Muhle R108, which weighs in at 64 grams. I have some Aristocrats that are very nice...
For carry-on, Bic Sensitive disposables. Universally recognizable and won't raise any eyebrows or cause me delays in the security line.
If I'm checking a bag, I might take an affordable current production DE that I can shrug off if I lose it.
I'm in with a 1970 (P4) Gillette Super Stainless (Pre-Spoiler).
First shave today in a '47 Aristocrat and a real pleasure.
I only shave three days a week, so this should be no problem.
Actually, looking at the calendar, Leap Day won't even come in to play for me.
I'm sorry to see this, but not surprised. One of my first forays into high-end products was in the 90s at their flagship store in New York, when AOS was still privately owned. I bought a D.R. Harris Arlington shaving stick.
After P&G got their hands on it, they didn't care about hiring...
