Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super
Cream: Cyril Salter Sublime Citrus
A/S: Generic Witch Hazel, Taylor's No. 74 Victorian Lime Splash

A smooth BBS shave made even nicer by the citrus scent of the cream. The citrus theme was extended further by the Victorian Lime splash, which provided a wonderful, refreshing finish. No face freeze, just a light cooling effect.

After the usual 1-2 minute hot towel prep:

old Fields badger
J Peterman 1903 SC
Lumene AS balm
vintage Caron 'Yatagan' EdT

Time to put the Kirby away for a while. Three days in a row's about my limit for this semi aggressive type. Tomorrow is back to the Executive, which will feel like sinking into my favorite chair. No need to pay as much attention to detail......heh.

BBS results,
