Gillette Flexball Review & Results....

Today I decided to try Gillette's new Flexball razor and their menthol based shave foam:


The foam was ok. It had pretty good cushion which offers protection from nicks and cuts, but there wasn't enough slickness for me. The cooling affect was minimum compared to Proraso's green formula which has an epic cooling affect which is good for damaged skin. The new Flexball razor itself done a pretty good job. It did conform to the contours of my face pretty good but unlike my old Gillette Fusion handle, it didn't give me that baby smooth shave or BSS. I didn't have to stretch the skin with my old Fusion handle at all to get my trouble spots in which I did have to with this new razor. It's also a tad bit shorter than the old handle is and it curves in toward the skin while the old handle does not. I got this new razor today at my local Sam's Club for $16.87 which is a steal considering that back in the day, I paid alot more than that just for the cartridges. But you'll never get me away from DE safety razors. The shave is at least a 100 times better and a lot more economical in the long run compared to the cartridge systems that are out there. The DE or double edge safety razor's up front costs aren't that great, but they'll last a lifetime compared to today's cartridge systems. The cartridge system's up front costs are great, while the long term costs are terrible and the post shave qualities are medium quality at best. I would Not recomend buying this version of the Fusion razor and stick with their older handles instead.

TTFFC Mixed & The Track 2:

Today's shave was great. I went with my Through The Fire Fine Craft mixed soap  made by Maria Arman. I've got a ton of soaps in her...
