Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum splash as cologne

Sure, Pinaud Clubman Virgin Island Bay Rum splash is cheap stuff, but I like it much better than any other Bay Rum.

Good Thursday morning all...

Fat Handle Tech w/ Dorco 300 (1)
C.O.Bigelow sc
Thayers Cucumber WH w/ aloe
Nievea Extra Soothing a/s balm
Dunhill for Men Edc

Fine shave with the new Dorco although I prefer the 301' the Astra a rest today but will go back to it for a final test tomorrow...the Dunhill is a fragrance that is a little different for me but one that I like wearing on this, the last day of the school year...may make the final AD purchases of the summer until the paychecks return in September.

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Razor: EJ Chatsworth
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Simpson Emperor 2
Soap: Proraso Classic (green pot)
A/S: Generic Witch Hazel, Proraso Splash

A very refreshing shave this morning. The Proraso soap provided a welcome cooling tingle, which was extended a bit by the Proraso splash. I feel ready to handle whatever I will encounter today.

With the "Minimalist Discussion" in mind:

Lucky Tiger Molle Brushless Shave Cream
Merkur 1904/Wilkinson Classic

Easy and simple with fine results and while I crave a little splash of something to finish my face feels fine mostly due to the lanolin content of the shave cream. A fun and workable shave but not something for every day, I do enjoy the variety so very much.
Good shaving,
