Razor - Slim Adjustable (set to 3)
Blade - 7 O'Clock yellow
Brush - Altesse
Soap - Proraso white
Toner - Thayers alcohol-free witch hazel
A/S - Proraso splash

I've found my "bread and butter" combo - the SA with 7 O'Clock yellows is amazing. Couple that with the Proraso and I'm a happy camper. :)

Tuesday, March 8th

Razor: Wilkinson Sticky
Blade: Schick Plus Platinum
Brush: Rooney Beehive in Two Band
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Wilkinson Shave Stick
A/S: Acca Kappa Cedar aftershave splash

An excellent shave. The Wilkinson Sticky and Schick Plus platinum blade continue to work their magic. I am 5 shaves in on this blade and it is still going strong. The Wilkinson Shave Stick was a pleasant surprise -it produces a rich creamy lather and has very good skin conditioning properties. My only complaint is that the scent is a bit stronger than I prefer but, it will no doubt fade as it sits uncovered. The Acca Kappa Cedar aftershave, another new purchase, was very nice. It has a subtle scent and left my face feeling great. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.
