Well it was time for the next step. Following trying out DE razors with a Boots cheapo (£3.99) I decided to spend some serious money (in this case £35) on a razor. From Executive Shaving the following arrived this morning (as good as Christmas!!!):

Merkur Progress
20 Merkur Blades
Taylors Shaving Shop scent cream

Looking forward to trying the Progress tomorrow and seeing if it makes a difference.

After a few weeks on this forum it looks like I will soon need a second bathroom cabinet.
WOW. I just ordered this stuff friday night (three days ago), and its already waiting at home for me today! I am very impressed with QED's turnaround! Products were packed very thorougly, and secured well.


Edit: I also really enjoy the descriptive sheets/executive summaries that Charles sends out. Very professional.

Nice score Joe, Charles makes a fine true Sandalwood soap, and I think you will love the brush.
Cheers, DJ.
Well, I must say I am normally immune to the RAD variant of *AD. That being said, I got two new razors.:redface: First, after all my griping about how NWC never answered my e-mails about the Injector group buy, a whole slew of members here came out of the woodwork to offer me theirs. What a bunch of guys! One member insisted on sending me one gratis despite my protestations. Not a good pic, but here it is:


Next, another member here put me in a half-nelson and insisted I buy a Gillette Superspeed from him after hearing that I had never tried a Gillette razor. Here is the little honey:


Can't wait to try them out.
That Gillette looks great. How does it work? Compared to the Merkur? I saw Joel's view on the Gillette, but I have been contemplating getting one off EBay. How is the injector, I am really close to pulling the trigger and getting one.

Now, on to our regular schedule for this thread:

Today, I got:

Floris Elite cologne, deoderant and balm
Floris Santal cologne, balm (2), shave cream and 3 bars of soap (great bar of soap btw, lathers even better C&E soaps I think).
Floris 127
Floris JF
(got to love the sale, but the elite was from Shop Londons, highly recommended)
Did a trade for the proraso pre/post and shave cream in the green tube.

I am now on a SWMBO hiatus from buying for a while :angry:

– Dovo razor stand
– Merkur Vision
– Feather Double-Edge Blades, 10-Pak
– T&H Ultimate Comfort Shaving Cream
– ToOBS Luxury Herbal Aftershave Cream

Tom, Those are some great gifts...are those from your sweetheart?
Hi Joe,

from my Marion and their parents, very, very lovely and heartily people...:001_smile :001_smile

I hope everything is okay with you and Candis??
Best wishes to her...

Taylors Victorian Limes cologne: this is my all time favorite cologne, used to think I only liked it in the summer, but after my wife said, "Mmmm. . .Daddy smells good this morning," at the breakfast table, this one is going into the 12 month rotation!:001_tt2: :001_tt2: :001_tt2:

Also finally picked up some Taylors avocado--great stuff, very moisturizing--the face feels so much better after the shave its amazing.

I also got a new hydrosol at the local hippie grocery--Pangea Organics - Italian Green Mandarin with Sweet Lime Facial Toner--very nice stuff, not as refreshing as Thayers, but with a bit more sting--in a good way. . .
More stuff today. It has been a good week.

Floris JF ASB
Floris Sandalwood cologne :drool:

They all smell great and can't wait to shave with Rosemary Mint tomorrow. I'm a newbie to wet shaving and have never tried soaps, but I'm looking forward to these.
