That pretty much comprises my routine (preceded by a shower, but I'd shower anyway so I don't count that as shaving prep!). I apply AS balm and if it's a morning shave aftershave also.
I tried applying shaving oil a few times but it wasn't a great success (especially when I had the nozzle turned the wrong way and squirted the stuff directly into my eye).
I try to keep the number of steps involved in shaving to the minimum. Most enjoyment is derived on my hour long bus journey to work afterwards when I often rub my fingers across my face, amazed at just how smooth I am.
