  1. I wonder if you have tried Cremo shave Cream and if so what is your opinion of the product. This is a brushless shaving product.

  2. Anyone have the balls to try the Gilette slide with a DE razor? I’ll j-hook, roll over, blade buff, but the slide conjurs up images of the butcher shop…
    All videos worked fine for me

  3. Good stuff Mark. Just an FYI, that last video resolves to “Sorry , we’re unable to play this episode.” I’ve tried it on various browsers and devices with the same result. But it can easily be found on Youtube.

      1. The embedded Blip link (for the last video) is what I was discussing. I use Google Chrome, but I also tried it on Firefox on one computer. Now I suppose it is possible one of the plugins I use might me the issue–I keep my browsers pretty tight, security wise. But since the other embedded vids worked fine, I just figured this one might have an issue. If they work for everyone else, I suppose it might be a plugin/addon issue, and/or perhaps an issue with non IE browsers.
        I had no problem with the youtube version.
