Shave of the Day: Monday Evening, 9 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Gillette Silver Blue Razor Blade
Stirling Fan Knot Badger Hair Shaving Brush
The Artisan Soap Shoppe Cooling Waters Shaving Soap Cream
Veliero Sabonete
Wholly Kaw Dark Vetiver Shaving Tonic


This was an okay shave. I used tap water, because of the amount of soap used in these soap/cream things. That may have been a mistake. Anyway, the good scent, of the Dark Vetiver tonic, mixed well with the strange weather. Hot, and, humid, and, raining, this morning. In the afternoon, more rains, but, cooler temperatures. The shave allowed me, to slow down, and, relax, a little bit.

Shave of the Day: Tuesday Night, 10 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Derby Stainless Steel Razor Blade
Artisan Made Lather Bowl
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Omega Shaving Cream
Fine Accoutrements Santal Absolut Shaving Tonic/Aftershave


What a long day. This shave helped me, to relax. I like the Derby blades, but, something seems to be missing. The hot weather, today, made me want something cooling, on my face, this evening. The good scent of eucalyptus filled the bathroom. The menthol, in the shaving tonic, felt cooling, without burning. The unique scent, of sandalwood, layered, perfectly, over the eucalyptus. A great combination, of scents, to leave me smelling excellent. I need to go to bed, soon, so, goodnight, Happy Tuesday, and, Happy Shaving! Party on.

Clearasil Face Wash
Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
New York City Landmarks Souvenir Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather

Fine Accoutrements Fresh Vetiver Shaving Tonic/Aftershave

It was a good shave, this morning. The crisp scent of vetiver filled the bathroom. It was a great way, to start, my morning. The aftershave balm is my favourite. I am sad, to say, I am having trouble finding more. I might switch the acne face wash, to after the shave. Happy Wednesday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Thursday Evening, 12 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Gillette Silver Blue Razor Blade
Stirling Fan Knot Badger Brush
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Arko Men Cool Shaving Cream
Arko Men Cool Aftershave Balm

What a long day! I had to work outside, for several hours. This morning, it was windy, and, raining. This afternoon, it was humid, and, sticky. I need a good shower, and, shave, to unwind. In order to unwind, I chose based on good scents. I went, with the products, from Arko. The Cool scent, of the shaving cream, reminded me of Derby Normal. The aftershave balm left me feeling refreshed. I feel like this shave was a preparation, for tomorrow morning's. I look forward, to it. Happy Thursday, and, Happy Shaving!
