After many years, I decided to go back wetshaving and was searching the net found out about the forum. Just ordered HD classic proraso/taylor old lavender creams..C&E..dovo alum..merkur/feather blades. Could not wait and went to Target bought proraso pre/post shaving creams. Last night before went to bed I applied preshaving cream.. In the morning bit more preshaving cream...Even with edge gel/fushion combination I got great result. It was before shower and hot water is used while applying gel.
I was a Arko/Gibbs guy however Proraso( at least the preshave cream) is awesome.
I will update you guys as soon as I receive my orders...
