Monday
Razor: GEM G-bar
Blade: Treet
Brush: Omega Boar
Soap: Bigelow Shaving Cream
Aftershave: Roscoe's Mix

Starting my experiment of a week of GEM shaving while trying different creams and soaps. Glowing shave, by far the closest I've gotten in a while. The only minus are the few shave bumps on my neck from using a Trac II for a quickie shave this weekend.

The shave set-up for the week is:

Schick injector with CVS blades
Kiss My Face Shave Cream, Mint
Dickinson's Witch Hazel
Proraso ASB

Still not the master of the injector yet. Very close but with several nicks that do heal quickly.

I let fate choose my scream/soap for today. I listed all I had (that I was willing to use) then allowed random.org to pick a number for me. It chose the 1805...had a nice, comfortable shave--so I guess fate knew what it was doing.
