Prep: 29-minute soak in swimming pool during workout, followed by shower in health club locker room.

Omega Syntex brush, 90018
Wilkinson Sword Stick, face lathered.
Slim Adjustable set at 4 (first pass) then 3 (subsequent passes)
Dorco ST-301, 1st shave
Body Shop Razor Relief, <2009 formula

First shave with the above kit put together for use at the health club. The long pre-soak in pool and shower made for a fairly easy DFS.
