What is your favorite aftershave? - Page 5

post #61 of 78
I currently use Aqua di Parma, Intensa. Although I must admit, it throws off whatever cologne you were planning to wear.

I read somewhere that running the blade across cork (wine cork would work nicely) will help dull it so it isn't so sharp

I actually ordered some more this weekend because I ran out. I am 4 days without a shave currently. I think my boss thinks I am on drugs or something. I sense the "random" drug test email any minute now. Hopefully these things arrive tonight when I get home.

Razor blades?

Yes, Feathers.

I didn't know they were known for being the sharpest when I first bought them, but I guess I may as well stick with them since I am learning with them. I assume they are the best you have tried?

Yes, they are well-known to be the sharpest. The company primarily makes surgical knives. The next best to Feathers, in my opinion would be Crystal Baldes made in Isreal.

+5 or whatever for feather blades and a good safety razor. my beard is extremely thick and a feather makes quick work of it. the only downside is that since they are so sharp they don't hold their edge and become duller faster.
if you just take your time and learn how to shave the right way with a safety razor you'll get a shave that is way better than what any multi-blade disposable razor will give you.

Witch Hazel. Feels great, no lasting fragrance.

Depends on the season.

During drier times, such as winter, I use Trumper's Skin Food. Coral or Sandalwood.

Hot summer, a splash, lately D.R. Harris Bay Rum.

In the middle, my go-to is Aqua di Parma's aftershave balm.

For shaving cream I use Trumper's Coconut Oil Shaving Cream.

Sanguis - I love that Trumpers cream, probably the best lathering cream in my bathroom.

I also use Penhaligon (sp?) Blenheim Bouquet and Aqua di Parma (colonia intensa).

Do you order them off of Ebay? I've found Ebay pricing to be extremely competitive for the feather blades.

Also, Truefitt & Hill 1805 aftershave balm:

The Castle Forbes aftershave balms are very nice as well, I'm partial to the lime.

You use crap blades, but $50 aftershave? Maybe if you spent better on blades you wouldn't need the aftershave.

You know, I never thought about ebay for them. I always bought them from www.westcoastshaving.com I will definitely look into that for the future. I just got my recent order and I always buy enough for about a year or two, haha. So I will have to put it on my calendar.


Oh, and for the record I have been trying the "Method Shave" this week. Absolutely horrible. I have never had as many ingorwn hairs on my face and neck in my life. I didn't shave last night and I just spent 40 minutes with tweezers picking out all of the ingrown hairs. I am going to let me face heal around the hair and go back to my normal with the grain twice and against the grain once. Pssh.
