This is part of a series of bloody matches to the death. Show support for your favorite game so it will do better in the fight. You can support it by writing why you think its the better game and more importantly by betting (i.e. voting for) it. Please make it clear for when I check the bets later. You have until Friday when I tally the bets and declare the winner. I will reserve my bet for any tie-breakers.

Proraso vs Musgo Real

I started in with DE shaving this past year and bought a badger hair brush, a DE razor, scads of blades, aftershaves etc. Of the various creams and soaps the most popular one that I bought was Proraso, which I like (the tube more than the green jar). In various shave forums the most discussed one around the same price point is Musgo Real, which I haven't tried, but am curious about. On the very slight chance anyone here has a wick of class and have ventured to shave as your granddad did (yes, I know he used a rusty old hacksaw and liked it, but still...), I'm curious which you prefer.

I prefer www.amazon.com/Kiss-My-Face-Pomegranate-...s=kiss+my+face+shave to Proraso. It's also cheaper and comes in 11oz which is like a freaking lifetime supply.

I use Col. Conk's soap exclusively. Never had reason to try anything else since I started DE shaving.

In summer, Proraso is the bomb. Very cooling. I don't want to leave the house without having shaved. Their A/S is a must too, but with winter drawing close, I'm considering my options. Can always fall back on DR Harris Arlington product.

Real talk guys. Is this new move toward DE shaving a fun thing to do or has it brought real substantial improvement to your shaving, from a razor burn/bump perspective? My initial impression has been that it's a hipsterish male grooming thing, but I can dig it if you've seen real differences.

Shaving is the bane of my existence. I only shave once a week if possible or two times if necessary, putting up with the scruffiness. It has nothing to do with laziness, instead I have the absolute worst razor burn and ingrown hairs. I've tried almost everything. Is it worth shelling out the cash for this?

I've been doing it for several years now. Best shaves I've ever had. Absolutely zero razor burns/bumps. I used to get those pretty bad too.

Here in the realm, the hipsters don't shave at all. YMMV.

My approach was from curiosity. A couple of years back I took a renewed interest in my appearance and hit upon the shave forums then. I also had no love for the shave experience and could only bring myself to drag a blade across my face once or twice per week. Objectively, the DE experience is an improvement because the razor has heft to remove hair. By contrast, you have to literally dig a plastic disposable into your cheek to get the damned thing to cut at all. So I have definitely seen an improvement. The DE thing is classy, and I like that.

I'll toss my vote towards Proraso. I've been DE shaving for a solid 4 years now and I'll never go back to that garbage that Gilette passes off as "the best a man can get".

You won't ever get a closer shave with a better scent. Say goodbye to rashes and bumps. Say hello to babysoft skin and actually enjoying shaving.

I like Proraso because it's fairly cheap, it has a nice, fresh smell and the eucalyptus is both cooling and refreshing. I love rinsing my face and getting that tingly, cold feeling.

FINAL: Proraso

The narrower question of Proraso v. Musgo Real looks like it takes a back seat to wet shaving vs disposables overall.
