Post & Aftershave
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + MacaRoot Aloe Gel
Good lather result from brush and bowl with nice scent. Slickness acceptable.
Shave with evergreen razor paired with blade (used to be a fav) not so smooth nor comfortable...nor sharp. However, no weepers creepers nor irritation after 3 multiple passes. DFS++ Icy water rinse followed by Thayers then Hyaluronic and MacaRoot felt good. Rating 8.5/10
