Good morning. Sunday:

Schick Tennis Handle Injector w/NOS Schick blade
PL8, Best
Nancy Boy Signature cream
Thayer's Lavender witch hazel
Harris Pink

Close, effortless shave. The Injector and the Nancy Boy are, for me, a great combination. The Injector likes the extra cushion that the NB has. The tennis handle looks silly, but it gives it great balance.
Best,
Chris

Saturday 5/24 - No shave, did some exfoliation using St. Ives mostly for my nose area.

Sunday 5/25

Hot shower
Merkur 38C w/Feather on shave #3
Rooney
Palmolive Lime cream / Tryphon Lime cream
AV Iced Sport AS
No cologne

Although the Feather blade has been a good performer, I see what Leisureguy meant by nicks and cuts for no reason. Will be switching back to the Derbys. Had to change creams mid-shave. The Palmolive smells nice but simply doesn't have enough cushion in it for me. The Tryphon cream was like a night and day difference on me. AV after shave - cheap, simple, effective, with a nice masculine scent to boot. 8)
