Luc, I have a life, and does the fact that I dont' have a girlfriend, but have sex often put a damper on your negative image of me?

After a very rough shave, the Musgo aftershave balsam does a good job of calming the skin, and relieving the raw or burned skin feeling, but doesn't do as good of a job for me at reconditioning the skin for a shave the next day. This may well just be me, though, as I have extremely sensitive skin when it comes to the razor, and can rarely pull off a close shave two days in a row no matter what combination of techniques and products I try.

After a normal and not especially destructive shave, though, the Musgo balsam (which can double as a pre-shave and has a nice smell, though different from the shave cream and the bar soaps) does an admirable job. It has a lot of good ingredients (marshmallow, eucalyptus, peppermint, licorice, etc. extracts, plus some Aloe or shea butter - I don't remember which) for reducing and healing irritation.

But the Musgo Balsam also has beeswax to provide a microthin layer to protect the newly shaven face from the elements, which can be good if you've had a very close or irritating shave and/or it's a windy or otherwise active weather day.

Well i bought the coral skin food, along with a tub of the rose cream ... should receive them on friday, in time for my saturday morning shave before work. Also have a tub of trumpers almond on its way from a guy on the shavemyface forum. There is a place not far from my uni with musgo real products .. might get a tube of cream and the balsam; and that will do me for shaving goods for a year or two. Then it's back to clothing and scotch.

Rose and excellent combination. Good luck with limiting your purchases at that! A year ago I swore that Proraso and Musgo would be the only shaving products I'd buy!

Very simple routine.

Pears soap, to wash.

Cocoa butter, to soften whiskers.

Edge gel, for 'lather.'

Gillette Fusion, to shave.

Avon vitamin charged toner, to soothe.

Moisturizer, of my choice.

Ahh interesting. I do have a ZIRH product (their deodorent) that I love. I never knew it was a Shiseido product, though I've always been fond of their make up on women.
