Thursday Morning:

Hot Shower/Proraso Glycerin Cleansing Bar/Hot Towel
1953 Gillette 40's Style SS
Swedish Gillette (Shave #3)
Tweezerman Deluxe
Vasmol Super Fresh SC
Skin Bracer Cooling Blue A/S
Vaseline IRML Lotion


Only the third time in my life that I have shaved two days in a row and I think I now know for sure that every other day is going to be the way it is for me. Although I did have fairly decent results today, my face did feel a bit raw afterward. I might be able to attribute some of this to the Vasmol SC. Vasmol Super Fresh? More like Vasmol Super STING! My face just DID NOT like this stuff. I think it may have something to do with the perfume. I get a similar sensation when I use TOBS Rose. On top of that, the lather was sub par. So far, the only Indian cream I've tried that just didn't deliver in performance. The Skin Bracer cooled me down and helped alleviate some of the sting and then the application of the moisturizer really took things down a notch. It's 6pm and I don't have any irritation so I'm happy.

Good Friday morning all...

Ming Shi TTO w/ 7OCY
Trumpers Superbadger
La Toja shave stick
Thayers Original WH w/ aloe
Nivea extra soothing a/s balm
Acqua di Parma Colonia Edt

Newly acquired La Toja was put to the test and passed with flying colors. Even with the relatively soft brush I was able face lather enough lather for my usual two and half passes and get a DFS. I think it's time to retire this blade. The Acqua di Parma, a sample from a co-worker is a nice change of pace...I'm curious how it progresses the rest of the day.
