Ok first, I believe it is Arbonne, not Airbonne...have an ex-boss who is driving a Mercedes thanks to Arbonne, and I had it shoved at me as well. Their products are made of top shelf ingredients, and I believe that they are good products in general. I tried the line for her before I started wet shav...

All I know is that the Apollo is one extremely aggressive razor. I have one, with the plastic box, but not in as good a shape as the one pictured above, and it has a huge blade exposure. It does shave well, but if you don't think you could take on a Futur wide open I would work on technique before t...

Best shave product out there. I get the cushion of a good cream and the lubrication is the best out there.

Williams Mug makes a great bath soap! :lol: It is an ok shave soap I guess, but the only way I could make to work well for me was to cover it with hot water for about 5 minutes first, then shake almost all the water out of my brush, pour off all the water, and then mix like crazy until I got a reall...

Regarding the fog free mirrors, if you buy "coated" mirror I think you are doomed to have to buy new ones periodically if you have hard water. If you buy one of the ones that connect to the shower head and send water through them to keep them from fogging you can use CLR to remove the mineral deposi...

I can get a good close shave with my Micromatic, but the blades don't last as long as the DE blades (2 sides vs 1) and they are more expensive. I enjoy throwing it into the mix once in a while...but it isn't a staple.

Since their shave cream was farmed out to Creighton, is there a replacement to be had from some other source? My tub is almost empty, and I've had no hits thus far on my trade thread. I really like the lemon & cedar scent, and I get a great shave to boot! You may want to try T & H Trafalgar cream. ...

Risking accusations of beating a dead horse, injectors make great head shavers. I have used the Headblade, Atra, M3, Sensor, Gem, and various DEs, and I always end up back with the injector.

Of course, YMMV.

I have done it. The only thing you have to remember is that you have no "padding" under your scalp. Any imperfections tend to get sliced off faster than with an M3. If you use an adjustable set it to the most conservative setting. I have used Gillette adjustables and a Futur to do it. Futur turned a...

Yikes...this would be tough. I would probably go with the Slant Bar. The reason being that no other razor gives me such an easy shave that is as close. The Futur is closer, but it requires that I pay attention. I have been trying a Vison out for a few days, and wow will it get close, but it is even ...
