I used to use it all the time before I started using the PAA Cube soaps. I honestly think the Proraso is superior, and will start using it again after this focus ends. Yes, I think I'll stick it out. I had an incredible shave with my DX this morning. Here it is 8 hrs later and I'm every bit as smooth as I was when I finished the shave. I usually start to feel roughness after about five to six hours. I'm curious as to how long this will last. I've never had a shave this close before. I wish I could do my head, but my danged tremors make that impossible, even with the weights.
