Impression

I've had this can of Gillette Gel since I gave up cartridge shaving and switched to traditional shaving. Tonight, I thought: "Why not?" ...

... and so, an efficient Schick shave with some Gillette goo. Truth be told it was pretty harsh. Harsh, not rough, nor aggressive. At least I'm now getting the opposite of what I got from Schicks some months ago ... nothing! My J is a little broken and the right hand retaining tooth slips sometimes. It's very obvious when it does, but I wonder if this defect contributed overall. Maybe, maybe not.

In all, I got a shave. The alum and my mentholated witch hazel cooled everything down and then the Quorum aftershave just fed and dried everything down. I love the face feel after Quorum. Love the smell, too, hence the spritz of EDT.

The gel? Oh, the gel? Well, yes, it did its thing.
