Just got some new stuff - opinions please!
Right, so I've just received a couple orders from the brilliant fellas (and gals, presumably) at Men's Biz, and would like to hear some combinations of the items I now have, for a shave I'll have in a few hours.
This is what I've got (using a '61 Gillette Fat Boy):
Preparation / Post
Proraso Pre-Shave (which I'm hoping is Proraso Pre&Post Shave, like I ordered!)
Nivea Aftershave Balm
Tabac Aftershave Lotion
Col. Conk Almond Shave Soap (smells FANTASTIC!)
Proraso Aloe & Green Tea
Mitchell's Wool Fat (smells strongly of...soap, yet haven't opened or used it yet, so it'd be a little too "book by its cover" to say I don't like it)
Of these, I've been using the Aloe & Green Tea for about 3 weeks. It's great, but naturally being my first wet-shaving related product besides the razor, I can't wait to try something new.
Of these, I've been using Feathers since my very first shave. From what I've read, I'm extremely excited to try the Derbys, but hey, that's what this thread is for!
Open for suggestion. You have approximately 140 minutes...GO!
