Tabac + Fitjar SP superlather
Kent BK4
Fatboy with Crystal
Rosehip seed oil

I've been neglecting my soaps lately, so I started using them with my unscented Fitjar cream. Very nice!

(Biding my time until I can buy more Nancy Boy.)

Gold Tech
Vulfix VS/3
Trumper's Rose Soap
Clinique Post Shave Soother

Fantastic shave. Trumper's Rose is my number one soap. It seems to soften my beard better than any other.

Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Simpson's Ehsan
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Valobra Shave Stick
A/S: Taylor Mr. Taylor

This is my 2nd time using the Valobra Shave Stick and I can now see why it is such a popular shave stick. It produces an excellent lather and left my face as smooth as a billiard ball (of course the Futur and Iridium played a role as well). Mr. Taylor, as always, was a fantastic finish. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

AOS Sandalwood Shaving Soap
Simpson Polo 8 super 2-band
Merkur HD w/Super Iridium
D.R. Harris Pink After Shave
Trumper's Sandalwood Skin Food
Blenhaim Bouquet EdT

Superlative winter shave. I have neglected the AOS Sandalwood Shaving Soap in deference to Trumper and D.R. Harris, but this is first tier stuff!

Spring is almost here - the Sun comes earlier and brighter every morning.

Wednesday Morning:

Hot Shower/Hot Towel
1966 Gillette TECH (Ball End)
Iridium Super (Shave #1)
Rooney Style 3 Super
Palmolive Sensitive SC
Brut A/S
Vaseline IRML Lotion

This is some pretty spectacular stuff right here. Forgot to use my Proraso Glycerin Cleansing Bar this morning but it doesn't seem to have had a negative effect on my results. Another great shave. I'm really on a roll.

Wednesday Shave

Post by Nick Freeh »

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

Merkur Futur
Astra Superior Platinum
Vulfix 2234 Super
TOBS Lavender Cream
Dickinson’s Witch Hazel
Speick Balm

The Futur, with Astra (shave #4) and TOBS cream, produced its usual smooth and comfortable shave. BBS, too! I wish this stuff had been available to me when I first started to shave in about 1955 with a Gillette DE razor and canned goo. Not that there is anything wrong with a Gillette razor--I have several and love ‘em.

Simpson Astor
AOS Sandalwood soap
Muhle R89 with Super Iridium blade
D.R. Harris Pink AS
Gentlemen's Refinery AS Balm
Creed Bois du Portugal

A nice combination today. The AOS Sandalwood is a good complement to the Creed BdP. The Gentlemen's Refinery Balm, while not worth its lofty price, is really nice stuff.

Morning shave:
Merkur HD
Vulfix 1002
Ogalalla Bay rum soap sample from Bullgoose
Dickinsons witchhazel
Woods of Windsor aftershave

I need to work with this soap. It lathered well but seemed a little lumpy.

Late afternoon shave:
Everything the same except for Alt Innsbruk
I think the soap requires tweaking with water
I love the aftershave.

I need a brush upgrade.
