Awesome review so far atx. This is by far the most realistic and in depth first person review I have ever seen on hydrolast stuff. I totally agree with you, Charles is a wonderful person to chit chat with about shaving. He doesn't care at all if you buy hydrolast, he just wants you to have a great shave. After all, he has spent his life helping people get better shaves. Keep up the product reviews and your progress. I would like to hear more.
