Still in.

FFMM sounds intriging, I'll be sure to have a look for exact details.

Another good shave, really enjoying this soc boar, it just feels plush in the face. I'm glad I stuck with it.
FFFMM rules
IT’S SIMPLE (Rule 1)

You just pick one BRUSH, one SOAP/CREAM, one RAZOR, and one BLADE*.
And you use ONLY those four for the whole month.

*With blades, if you chose say “Astra SP” you would stick to that blade, but use as many of them as you see fit.

That’s the end of Rule 1. Rule 1 is the only rule.

Used the Rockwell for a near-BBS face, and a basic one-pass neck shave.

If I tried the FFFMM, I would be hard-pressed to choose between the Rockwell and Game Changer.
