  1. I've just bought a small amount of the Horotec Episurf-Neo, which is advertised as a 'next gen' epilame treatment.

    Directions for use say 30 second dip, 60 second dry at air temperature. So no heat required.

    I too am looking for a cheap DIY alternative to the special dip bottle. I've been experimenting with the little filter baskets from the water inlets on washing machines! Haven't found the perfect solution yet, but I'm working on it!




  2. This is the DE (safety razor) I use https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Men-Double-Edge-Safety-Shaving-Razor-Adjustable-1-6-Files-Classic-Double-Edge-Razors-1-handle/32792086455.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.35754c4dNqTT3h


    It's a copy of a well regarded razor the Merkur Futur which retails at £55

    They have done an excellent job at copying it, it has 5 adjustment stops for aggressiveness & the top cap just clips off for blade replacement.

    I highly recommend the copy, it's very well made.


    The blades supplied with it are usable but not brilliant. I use Gillette 7 o'clocks or Astra Platinums, available on eBay for peanuts.

  3. I've been using straight razors (cut throats) for around 15 years, I also own a Merkur Future clone (available for around £13 on Ali Express) 

    Some of my straight razors are 100-150 years old and I am extremely proud to be part of their history. Most were manufactured in either Sheffield or Solingen and I have purchased them from all over the world. It would be wonderful to see their journey through time!

    I must add...They have, if cared for, a few hundred more years life in themB)


    The Merkur Future clone is for when I have a hangover, it's a excellent DE (safety razor) with a Gillette 7 o'clock blade;)

    Do you mean I can take the spring from the lower shock, fit it in the upper shock and use the Chinese one for the lower shock?


    I wouldn't try that if I was you!

    As you have already found out, the Chinese springs are made from poor quality metal and break just by breathing on them.

    Would you rather have two broken springs, rather than one?!
