Monday, :roll: whatever...

Schick Krona w/ Astra Platinum blade
Opal handle w/ TGN silvertip
DR Harris Lavender soap
C-M Greenbriar balm, cologne, and talc

I have several Caswell-Massey talcs, and my wife has a several others. C-M does a nice job after the shave, but their soaps and creams are abysmal - wish they would fix that!

Monday 28 February 2011

Razor - Slim Adjustable (set to 3)
Blade - Merkur
Brush - Altesse
Soap - MWF
Toner - Thayers alcohol-free witch hazel
A/S - Sandalwood Skin Food

The Merkur mated nicely with the SA - they seem to play nicely for me. Very smooth shave with no nicks or weepers.
