34C w/US Personna day 2
Rooney 3, 1
TBS SC
Sara Bonnyman's "Rice" bowl
Moss Scuttle
Thayers Lemon WH

I think the Rooney 3, 1 has a feel somewhat like my Omega 30005--very scrubby with a feeling of softness. It is taking me a while to get used to. I definitely have to use more product with it.

Wednesday Morning:

Hot Shower/Hot Towel
Gillette 1953 40's Style SS
Swedish Gillette (Shave #3)
Noxzema Green Can
Aqua Velva Classic A/S
TSD AS Milk
Preferred Stock


Let me just start by saying that this was not the original set up for this morning that I had intended. I actually started off using my Omega 48 Professional boar brush and a puck of Williams Mug shave soap. What a disaster!! That crap isn't worth the buck that I paid for it. It seemed like it was lathering nicely but a few minutes after application to the face, it started to dissolve. Just an unpleasant experience altogether, which is a disappointment because I really like the scent of it. Not wanting to take any more time to build more lather with something else, I opted for the Noxzema green can which did it's job just fine. My end results were passable, a splash of AV for some freeze face and some TSD AS Milk for moisturization and I was feeling pretty good.

Wednesday:

Brush: Simpson PJ2 Super
Soap: Trumper Almond soap
Razor: EJ Lined Chatsworth
Blade: Crystal
After Shave: Thayer's Lavender; Nivea Sensitive AS Balm
Cologne: Creed Green Irish Tweed

The Chatsworth/Crystal combo did a pretty good job, but I got a good bit of drag for some reason. It was the first shave on this Crystal, so I'll need to see how the blade settles in after a shave or so.
