Maggard Super High Density 2-Band
Tim's Orange-Cedarwood fanboy ss*
Gillette Red Tip w/Med Prep blade
Lucky Tiger Aftershave/Face Tonic
Old Spice cologne spray (current)

*Fanboy is the nickname I've given to a soap formulation I worked up that has a lot of the trendy artisan kitchen-sink ingredients thrown in. You know, the kind that inspire fanboy ecstasy on certain other forums. Cupuacu butter, jojoba oil, glycerin overdose, castor oil, coconut milk, a mineral chelator.... It makes good lather, but I'm not sure I prefer it to any of my other soaps.
Regards,
Tim

I like the "Fanboy" concept.

Thanks. In fairness, I haven't tried all of them, but I'm amazed at how much adulation some of these soaps command. Anyway, like I said, it's a good soap. Not life-changing, though.

Tim

I've had cupuaçu (note the "ç") juice, fruit, and cupuaçu-flavored ice cream. Cupuaçu butter must come from the large seeds within the flesh of the fruit.

Today's shave was interesting because in spite of the close and smooth shave yesterday, the whiskers had grown a lot in just 1 day. Felt like I hadn't shaved in 3 days! No matter, after the General and Schick combination it was outstanding.
