Razor: Cooncat Bob TTO Razor
Blade: Gillette Yellow
Brush: Shavemac D01 Horn
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Italian Palmolive with Menthol
A/S: Alt Innsbruch

Wow...I am really glad that I decided to try the Italian Palmolive. It is my new warm weather favorite. While my skin is sensitive to many creams, this one works great for me. It has a decent dose of menthol although nothing over the top and I find the skin conditioning properties to be excellent. I ended up using too much cream and will reduce the amount by half next time. Live and learn! The Cooncat Bob TTO Razor with the Gillette Yellow did a fantastic job. The added weight of the cooncat handle is just what this mild TTO razor head needed and the shave quality reminds me a lot of my Wilkinson Sticky. Enjoyed an excellent shave followed by a refreshing splash of Alt Innsbruck. Very nice indeed! -Czech & Speake, Taylor of Old Bond Street, Geo F. Trumper, D.R. Harris, Kent, Edwin Jagger and More
