I was not a fan of the GFT, as stated above suggest you sample before you buy. Funny that JayKay mentioned Giorgio Armani thats what I now wear instead of the GFT. Much nicer. Some of the people I work with said, we are glad you are now wearing a new cologne that old one smelt like fly spray. As alw...

Thanks for all the responses guys. Much appreciate the advice and help.

As I said the Proraso really agrees with my skin. I have had the smoothest and closest shaves and the best thing none of that burning feeling I used to get after a shave.

Yes the proraso seemed to be a lot better, plus was very cooling on my face, not sure why I am not getting the results from the Trumpers Rose, the proraso seemed more gentle and cooling on my skin.

Strange, but as long as it does the job, and with the proraso being so cheap im not complaining :)

I usually use Trumpers skin food as a pre shave, this morning I did not use it, and I must say I had a significantly bette...

Thanks for the advice. I agree, I think my technique needs improving. I will dial the futur back down to 1 in the morning and see how I go. Do you guys think the skin food as a pre shave will help? As for shaving cream, I have read that the trumpers is not as good as it once was, any other recommend...

Hi All, Thanks for the response. I am in Australia, so about the only blades you can buy locally are the Merkur. I have just placed an order for the large sampler pack from west coast shaving, will try the new blades and see how I go. I noticed you can buy the derby, israelis and feathers on EBAY, s...
