Monday and til the TOBS Rose is gone!

Post by Flash G »

Taylors of Old Bond Street Rose
Simpson Tulip 2
Futur w/ Super Iridium
Three Crowns No. 2 Rose ASB

I've only got a little left of the TOBS Rose so I've decided to finish it off. I won't be getting a new since I wasn't blown away by the scent. The actual cream is terrific, though, so I have a tub of paraben rich Avocado waiting for it's moment. The scent of the Avocado reminds me a lot of myrtle :-k

Good morning. Tuesday:

NEW Rooney w/IP
SR 3824
Taylors Rose
Thayer's Lavender witch hazel

Hammam Bouquet

Pulled the Treet midway through the first pass- really a sub-par blade.

Good Tuesday morning all...

Fat Handle Tech w/ Feather (5)
Edwin Jagger BBB
Lea shave stick
Thayers Original WH w/aloe
444 a/s gel
Vetiver by Guerlain Edt

I tried the new Lea shave stick I got yesterday. It went on easily enough and yielded a nice cushioning lather with the best badger brush which may have been a bit too wet. It does not have any scent that I could detect. Two and a half passes with the Tech/Feather combo and I end up with a DFS. The Lea has glycerin which always leaves my face feeling good...not up to Arko standards but I would recommend it.

Gillette 'Swede'
Simpson's Best Badger Special
D.R. Harris Arlington Shave Stick (home made)
Nivea asb

I have decided that I find the stick format more convenient for me to use than a cake and a bowl. So I decided to try and convert one of my cakes of soap to a stick, which I did yesterday afternoon. Used it this morning, and it worked great!

I grated the Arlington cake, and pressed the gratings into a an old 35mm film cannister. It gave me a stick that was the same diameter as a Palmolive stick, but shorter. I removed it from the film tub and wrapped it in foil.
