@warhawk Mel, it felt smoother on my head than face, but it's the first time I've used them. I got a 100 of them and 100 Rapiras. I've heard good things about them both. I'll have a better idea after a few shaves and a few blades have been tested!
Oh, the aftershave wax isn't that different to a good balm, but a little goes a long way. I can mainly smell patchouli, but SWMBO smells lavender mainly. There are different types available, but mine is just the original type!
