The Neutrogena consistently does a great job prepping my stubble for the blade, while the Ginger's Garden lathers up easily and thoroughly to allow for the most cushion and glide. As was the case yesterday, I can clearly tell the difference between shaving with a stainless steel blade and shaving with a chrome platinum (or tungsten-coated) blade. Two passes had my face nicely chilly from the menthol, with DFS results and no irritation or weepers. Ty, it's always nice to see another person enjoying the Bolzano!
