Gillette Heritage DE & Aveeno Gel

Today we flip everything around. We ditch the shaving soap for shaving cream gel in a can. Aveeno is the shaving gel of choice. We then decided to shave with a DE razor which came out a few years ago called the Gillette Heritage. This was offered on Amazon by Gillette which received lots of attention from the wet shaving community. It came in the classic brown clamshell case with a rich brown interior lining but it was not real leather. This was a closed-comb three-piece DE Razor with a premium, chrome-plated handle, the kind from years ago.

After it was released many reviews pointed out that it was merely a clone of an available DE razor from another manufacturer. Under the FAQ on the website, this is how they address that issue. "Yes, this is the first Double Edge razor set sold by Gillette in the US since the late 1980s. In 1901, King C. Gillette altered the shaving experience forever with the invention of the first safety razor. Now, more than a century later, Gillette is celebrating the holiday season by releasing the Gillette Heritage–Inspired Double Edge Safety Razor. This premium 3-piece razor set is inspired by the original 1929 Gillette double-edge razor.

The Aveeno was such a surprise, I've had only a few gels that have worked as well as Aveeno. I would have given this a perfect score if it wasn't for the fact that the can is just too damn tall why such a tall can is beyond me but I do believe that have addressed this issue. Other than that the product itself is amazing slickness and glide alone is worth the $5.00 price tag. it also makes an incredible lather that gets right into the beard and the post-shave feel, another surprise.

In this video, I also talk about a Netflix limited series that I told someone about 3 years or so ago and they just decided to just now watch it. I'm talking about the incredible series called Midnight Mass. The cast and acting are way above par the storyline is something that I think will keep you glued to the very end.

That's all I have for this week
As always, be kind to one another
