    I'm pretty old school. I mostly walk around with Old Spice, and that's also the one that gets the most compliments.

    If I do that, I tear my face off. I also only use the very sharpest blades I can find (Feather double edge). Last time on vacation, I had to hand over my blades before going on the airplane and I had to buy those disposable ones. I walked around with a face of ingrown hairs for a month after that.

    Your scrotum must be as rough as a rhino's hide.

    What I like best about the old-school stuff is that it's cheap and easy to try new things.

    I pulled a 6 month gift subscription to "dollar shave club" out of the secret santa gift exchange last year.

    i wanted to slap the shit out of whoever gave it him because up to that point i only used the Gillette Fusions or the Fusion Pro-Glides.

    Out of pure curiosity I decided to try the razors for the fuck of it and they're actually comparable to (if not better than) the Gilette razors and they sell for 1/3 of the price. I haven't used a gilette razor since - even gave away the 4-pack of blades i had left.

    the $9 ones. I think they're called the executive or some shit like that.

    they're delivered to the house automatically every month now...they really are the tits. i'd recommend to anyone.

    I use Gillette Foamy to shave. If I haven't shaved in a few days I use gel shaving cream first, it moisturizes and makes the beard easier to shave. For after shave I use lotion. I used to use Oil of Olay, but I found some Goat's milk lotion that I really like but then I went back to buy more but they no longer had it there, I use any hand or body lotion because it will not sting.
