    Saturday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    Palmolive Shave Cream
    Jayaruh #424 Synthetic
    TARMAX by Tom
    Astra SP
    CWR
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Palmolive Shave Cream lathered well with Jayaruh #424 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the TARMAX Razor by Tom set on 8 with an Astra SP Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    thank you Paul.:):eatdrink047:.the one thing gillettes offer is that their shaves are all quite similar.i start with cap edge on face and angle downwards..there are some models like the old type that require more respect than others but ..;)
