Early start this fine Monday morning.

Vulfix 2233
C&E Nomad shave cream
'58 Super Speed
Derby blade (#2)
Thayer's Original witch hazel
St. Charles Shave Aged Leather ASM

Today's shave was sub-par. I will chalk this one up to lack of concentration. I was on the border as to whether I needed to shave this morning due to shaving yesterday afternoon, but I thought I would need it by this afternoon. Ho hum.

Tried Chris's suggestion of using soap on your face prior to lathering with the Musgo - best lather and shave with this cream I've experienced. Also did not experience the same level of sensitivity I normally do. Quite pleased to say the least.

Merkur Long/Israeli
T&H Lavender (I'm suggestible - all the talk of T&H making a great Lavender cream, and then I find myself in Nordstrom right next to the T&H display)
Lucky Tiger AS/T
Trumper Wellington

T&H Lavender is a delightful product. How I lived without it up until now is beyond me...
