The Bic is surprisingly smooth in the EJ, and the Sandalwood is just so very good :)

Vulfix 374 Super
TOBS Almond Shave Cream
Merkur 1904/Wilkinson Classic
Thayers Witch Hazel w/Aloe
Nivea Sensitive After Shave Balm

Consciously made a switch today, TOBS Almond was a fine replacement for Valobra after a fairly long run. If I get the chance today I will stop by at Merz and pick up a couple more sticks.
Good shaving,

Savile Row 3122
Arko shave soap
Red Tip razor B2
Dorco 301 day 4
Proraso splash :shock:

Been a while since a highly mentholated a/s splash for me. Yowza! Forget coffee: that's the way to wake up on a cold morning.

Going to use the Arko with my Semogue LE tomorrow, then try my favorite cream (Salter Vetiver) with both badgers and decide which one to keep.

Razor: Gillette NEW Open Comb
Blade: Lord Platinum Class (2nd use)
Soap: Prairie Creations - Tibetan Amber
Brush: Omega 48 (the Chrome Beast) :D
Toner: Thayers Lavender WH
A/S: Pinaud Clubman, Nivea Post-Shave Balm

I just picked up this NEW and this was the 2nd shave with it. What a great razor! It is slightly more aggressive than my Sheraton, but still a smooth, very comfortable shave. Two passes, and a little clean up, and it was BBS!! Looking forward to more great shaves.

Pre-shave Soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: EJ Chatsworth
Blade: Treet Dura Sharp
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE
Cream: Portman Square "Notting Hill" Cream/Soap
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Speick Balm

The Grosvenor LE/Portman Square combo quickly whipped up a nice, creamy, protective lather which helped to make this morning's shave extremely smooth and comfortable. The Dura Sharp has become one of my favorite blades, and it didn't let me down this morning. A "little dab" of Speick balm was the perfect finish.
