My shave of the day: Wash face: Dove Men+ Deep Clean scrub face and body wash Pre-shave oil: Dr. Carver from Dollar shave club Shave cream: Dove Men+ Hydrate+ Razor: Qshave Merkur Futur clone from AliExpress Blade: Bic Chrome Platinum Post shave: T.N. Dickinson witch hazel Shave Balm: Nivea Sensitive Skin Balm AS: Pinaud Clubman Classic This was a wonderful shave! Have found the combo that works for me. The Bic blade in the Futur clone worked perfect. I an traveling this weekend and all this stuff was in my Dopp bag (in smaller versions). YMMV. I have a sample pak of Bic blades and will get more.
