Hi, remember me? I'm the Keen Aussie that came in asking for some shave advice a little while ago. James was very helpful (Thanks James!) and I'm now back to tell you folks how I did.
Dan's Adventures in Wet Shaving!
Since we last spoke, I've improved my shaving kit out of sight. I'm now the proud owner of two Fatboys. And a ... bunch of other stuff. A package of a lot buy from EBay arrived today. After I get the razors cleaned up, I'll post a photo of my instant collection. I must say, estate sales rock. I'm so glad you can't take it with you.
Anyway, I've improved my shaving experience. From using a dime store bristle brush and a bar of bath soap, I now use:
Somerset's Shave oil
A Vulfix #849 Best Badger Brush
BodyShop Save Cream (With Sesame Oil. Smooth!)
my shny new Gillette Fatboy. ^_^
Garnier Pore Purifiying Astringant (for aftershave)
Banana Boat After Sun Gel (as skin food).
Many of the items on the list I allready owned, just were not part of my shaving routine.
I've gone from havin an aversion to lather to getting all excited every time I walk into the bathroom. Twice I've caught myself being disapointed that I can't shave mrore than once a day.
Gee, Just talking about it... (rubs cheek. RAAASP!) Woot! Stubble! I'm off to shave again!
Thankyou ever so much for your help. My life is better every single day because I met you guys. A big shout out to James (With the Grain) for being such a good sport.
