SOTD: February 22nd through February 28th

Post by The Seeker »

Merkur HD
Gillette 7 O'Clock SharpEdge (shave #3)
Omega 30005 Boar
Tabac Shaving Soap
Boots Distilled Witch Hazel
Gillette Sensitive After Shave Balm

Once again, my new boar destroyed the soap and produced a rich, creamy lather. What an amazing brush. Also, I keep my witch hazel in an old Dr Bronner's container as it's easier to dribble out.

Gold Plated Gillette Tech
Gillette Super Thin
Vulfix VS/3
Tabac Soap
D.R. Harris Pink a/s

Last shave with my last sample Super Thin. They're a usable blade, but didn't make me go "Wow", so I won't be off to buy a lorry load.

Yup. The temperature is above freezing, the crusty snow is melting and there is no snow in the forecast. Definitely a rosey kinda day. Oh, and the fact that it's a great cream doesn't hurt either.
