    Cold water face wash with brush squeezings, Cold Water Face Rinse. /Homemade (~Spring/Summer mix~) Lemon, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Essential Oils.+3 Menthol Crystals Mixed Together With 200ml of Care+Witch Hazel./Aloe Vera Gel./4711 ~ Eau De Cologne/ASL.

    Greetings,

    Early morning shave,

    An incredibly good shave from the Baili super-speed clone, pairing up wonderfully with the Gillette 7'0clock Super Platinum.... Every shave that i have had with it has been consistently good...The 7'0clock Super Platinum i find works really well with non-aggressive razors these blades are really sharp, almost 'Feather' but with a smooth edge. I personally find Feather blades to be over sharp which makes them feel rough...I prefer smoothness in a blade rather than sharpness, the 7'0clock Super Platinum has a good balance of both.

    A Enjoyable 3 pass + pick ups close comfortable shave with no errors to report...Finishing to the shave off with a generous splash of 4711 ~ Eau De Cologne/ASL...The 4711 has a wonderful scent my only wish is it wasn't so short lived...You can't have everything though.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy your day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

    I use warm or hot tap water to whip up my lather but from then on I only use cold water. So after each of my 3 passes plus 1 touch up pass I rinse with cold water. After the alum has done it's thing I rinse it off with cold water. I do wash my gear with warm water. Do I qualify for membership?
