Friday morning:

Hot shower/Proraso pre/post
1966 Slim set on 1
SuperMax super platinum 2nd shave
Penworks finest
Proraso shaving cream
Proraso pre/post

First shave with a Slim; set on 1 with a SuperMax blade it was the gentlest shave I ever had. My Tech is aggressive by comparison, so I really recommend this razor and setting for a beginner or for people with sensitive skin.

Good Friday all...

Gillette Fat Handle Tech w/ Feather
Speick sc
Dickinson's WH
Speick a/s
Musgo Real a/s balsam
Vetiver by Guerlain Edt

Great Speick lather, enough for a two pass head shave after a three pass shave with the Tech. A DFS to be sure and a great finish with the Musgo balm and the Guelain Vetiver. Too bad it'll only be 30 degrees today, but it is Friday after all.

Omega 30005
Palmolive crm
1912 GEM SE*
Ted Pella GEM
Thayer's aswh
TdH EdT spray

*First time in a while. Shaves were getting a little stale and a little sloppy. Change it up, and the focus on technique really helps. I got a bit of irritation where my angle was off on the neck, but it'll be perfect tomorrow.

Jaggerooney (Jagger/Mühle head, Rooney faux horn handle)
Super Iridium
Erasmic SC
Vulfix 2234 Super
Dickinson’s Witch Hazel
Ogallala Bay Rum & Sandalwood Toner

Great shave--smooth, close, and comfortable. I enjoy the Erasmic SC (in the metal tube). The scent is very pleasant and soothing, IMO. I haven’t tried the Erasmic cream in the newer packaging.

The Ogallala toner provided a fine finish.
