I've been experimenting with SE shaving for the last three days. So far, so good. No nicks and DFS in 2 passes. It is very different from DE. :)

Belgian Williams Shave

I am still testing the new shaving products I recently bought in Belgium and it is interesting to see how a product changes from country to country. This is the case of Aqua Velva after shave, for example. I am particularly fond of this after shave, in particular because it was my father's favorite and I like it both for its fragrance and performance. The Aqua Velva sold in Belgium seems to be quite different from the one sold in Italy. Fragrance is notably different, although having the same base nuances, the INCI is quite different, not just a matter of ingredient types but also of sequence. In terms of performance, they are both good. I also used this Williams shaving cream, bought in Belgium, and it did not impress me that much. A good soap but not the best, besides the fact it tends to easily dry on the skin. The icing on the cake was of course my awesome Mastro Livi CarboInox razor: a striking combination of beauty and excellence of smoothness, giving a superb and close shave.
