Good day Thursday

Muhle R89 with Derby
Rooney 3/1 super
Tabac shave soap
Speick aftershave / J&J moisture lotion
Geo. F. Trumper Eucris EDT

... will be going Harvard Square today for a stop at the barber and Colonial Drug to get a Tabac refill - this puck's just about dunzo.

edit: <later> Colonial was out of Tabac refill pucks and I have no need for the Tabac ceramic jar. :x I almost bought a refill puck of Kent soap instead, but somehow exercised restraint and held back.

Razor: Schick Adjustable Injector
Blade: Chinese Schick Injector Blade
Brush: Shavemac 22369 Long-Handled
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: MEM with Allantoin (Thanks Freddy)
A/S: Proraso Aftershave Balm

I was in a hurry today so I opted for the Schick Injector which always gives a no nonsense shave and the sample of MEM cream that I received from Freddy. The Shavemac 22369 whipped up an abundance of nice lather from a small amount of MEM cream and I enjoyed a quick DFS shave. The Proraso balm was a nice finishing touch.

Thursday Shave

Merkur Futur
Astra Superior Platinum
Simpson Colonel X2L
Proraso Green Tea with Aloe soap
Dickinson’s Witch Hazel
Ogallala Bay Rum Toner

I originally purchased the Proraso Green Tea/Aloe soap out of curiosity and am finding out that I like it a lot. It has just a touch of menthol, but possesses a pleasant, light scent--not medicinal smelling at all. It lathers well and leaves my face feeling refreshed. This stuff seems to be one of those under appreciated products, but it now has a permanent membership in my soap rotation.

The WH/Ogallala Bay Rum provided an excellent finish to the BBS shave this morning.

Only the second lathering with this brush and already it's breaking in and is kissing on the second date. I like that.
