    It was an awesome shave. I didn't think both heads would align and thought that only one of them would be cutting it at a time but that wasn't the case. Both heads cutting at the optimum angle made for a very efficient shave

    Very interesting. Thanks. I’m glad it wasn’t a bad experiment but a great experience. I find it always fun to try different razors and such. What a lucky find in that lot.

    HA! I had Old Spice Lime planned for Sunday ahead of time. No copy cat intended. Cool coincidence.

    Excellent post. I haven't tried a 'blueberry' vibe fragrance yet. And must admit my old caties bubbles pucks don't get much use. I think i should try this now.
