  • Prep: Hot towel
  • Brush: C&E BBB
  • Cream: SCS Smoke & Beads
  • Razor: '40 Gillette Regent Tech
  • Blade: Crystal (shave 3)
  • A/S: Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner
Not a BBS shave today. Did not expect it. Had a busy day in the home office and did not see need to shave until late this afternoon. Then I shaved only to enjoy the scent of the Smoke & Beads and the experience of shaving. So that I could shave early in the morning I just did a 2 pass WTG shave today. Got to tell you, it was not a bad shave. No nicks, weepers or irritation. But a bunch of stubble that seemed to lessen as the pores closed back up. Still enjoy the BBS shave with my 3 pass plus oil pass daily shave.
