    Great aftershave lotion. A bottle is empty now. I also like Proraso's soaps but this lotion is the best for me.[​IMG]

    For me, the best deals in wetshaving are Omega 49 boar brushes, which are often on sale for about $11 CDN or $8 USD, Palmolive Shave Sticks for literally under $3, Nacet or Astra SP blades when they come on sale for $12 a hundred and Stirling soap samples, which are well priced but last long enough to go well beyond being a ‘sample’.
    Any combination of those that get you to $20 is what is the best bargain to me.

    Since they play those shell games, I thought I'd untangle the spaghetti. Wilkinson is currently owned by Edgewell Personal Care who recently split off from Energizer corporation. They also own Schick, Playtex, Stayfree, Hawaiian Tropic, Banana Boat, Jack Black, Bulldog, Wet Ones, Skintimate and Edge.
    No entanglements with Jillette. ;)

    100 pack of Voskhod blades costed me about 8 bucks on Amazon a few months ago. They’re for me the best de blades ever. Throw in Proraso red shave soap for $7 on eBay and you have a great soap and 100 count of blades for $15.

    If you're OK with alcohol based splashes, the Red AS is great. There are others that cost more, but from my research it's supposed to be as close to straight sandalwood as you can get on a budget. Very little "other" scents that I can discern.
