Tuesday Shave

Post by Nick Freeh »

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super Badger
Soap/Cream: Proraso cream
A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel/Proraso Splash

Wowee!! Great shave this morning--that Proraso tingle is just what I needed. I should use Proraso more often. It produced great lather and plenty of it.

The Proraso A/S, used after the WH had dried, produced an added tingle and an excellent finish.

Omega 31020
Harris Almond
Merkur "1904"
Lord Racer bb
Superior 70 8)
Equipage EDT

Bay Rum of any sort precedes Hermes Equipage beautifully. Lately, I've also been impressed by the soothing capacity of Superior 70, despite its high alcohol content. Harris lather was better today, but not as impressive as I remember. Maybe it will get better as I readjust to it?

Razor: Merkur Vision
Blade: Iridium Super
Brush: Shavemac 208
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Tabac
A/S: Musgo Real Classic Aftershave

This was my 3rd shave with the Vision and the 3rd time was definitely the charm. In my previous shaves I thought I was shaving with the Vision on 2 but I actually had it opened more than that. No wonder I was getting nicks. This time I dialed it all the way down and enjoyed an irritation free BBS shave. The beast has been tamed!

Tabac soap is always a favorite and the Musgo Real aftershave felt great. Although this is an alcohol based aftershave, there are oils and glycerin added which makes it fairly moisturizing for an alcohol based aftershave.

Tuesday

Merkur 39c Slant
Swede
Simpson's Best Badger Special
Kent (MWF) Soap
L'Occitane Cade a/s splash

First shave with a slant, and I still appear to have my facial appendages attached, and the same amount of blood coursing through my veins as I woke up with.

Tim, I like it better than most of the high-priced spreads. But it wasn't the high alcohol content that had me concerned, it was the napalm.
