Razor: Gillette Fat Handle Tech
Blade: Bic Chrome Platinum (11)
Brush: Omega 10049 Pro Boar
Pre: Proraso Green Pre-shave Cream
Cream: Pacific Shave Co. Natural Shave Cream
Post: Proraso Red After-shave
Balm: Proraso Blue Balm
Beard: Proraso Cypress and Vetyver Beard Balm

Rating 9-/10 - Almost DFS. It was a different shave, Went XTG, ATG, ATG, and then buffed ATG. Got a slightly off DFS today, no irritation. The Pacific Shave Co. Cream doesn't really lather well. It dissipates rather quickly, but is very slick if you don't lather it with a brush and just apply to your face. I liked the citrus scent.
