Goo afternoon. Saturday and Sunday:

TV Superspeed w/7 O'Clock Black
Vulfix Hyde Park
Coates Limes
Thayer's Lavender witch hazel
Fitjar Neroli A/S cream
English Fern

Travel kit. The bristles on the Hyde Park are top quality boar- the nicest I've tried- but the knot and handle are too small.
Best,
Chris

L'Occitane offers Cade soap and ASB, but no EDT; they offer Eau des Baux ASB and EDT, but not a soap. I wonder who in Provence makes these quirky little decisions...?

SUNDAY

- EJ/DR Harris 87 with Derby
- C&E BBB
- Ogallala Bay Rum with Sandalwood Soap
- C&E Nomad ASB

IMHO Ogallala Soaps are a 'sleeper' product that perform very well. The scent of the Bay Rum/Sandalwood is outstanding with a soap base that delivers top tier of any cold process I have tried.

Sunday Shave

Post by Nick Freeh »

Sunday, November 8, 2009

Razor: Merkur Progress XL
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super
Cream/Soap: Valobra Soft Soap
A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel/Nivea Fresh Cooling Balm

The Valobra produced lots of nice lather, more than enough for 3 passes and touchup, and the Progress gave a smooth and effortless shave.

The WH/Nivea topped it all off with a fine, cooling finish.

Phil, I forgot to mention: that's a darned good looking soap-n-bowl! Bet it smells pretty good, too.
