Omega Granduca
Vitos shave soap
1956 Red Tip B1
Dorco 301 day 3
Dr. Galen splash
Tommy Bahama

Vitos is very good soap. It has a light, clean almond scent. It lathers very well. It conditions the skin nicely. Would love to be able to use it regularly, and I will test it tomorrow again to see how my skin reacts.

Pacific All Natural Shaving Oil
Pacific All Natural Shaving Cream
Merkur 1904/Wilkinson Classic
Aqua Velva Ice Blue After Shave

Couldn't resist a small bottle of AV on sale at the local grocery store, haven't used it for quite sometime, it does work well.

Nice shave this morning with the Pacific combo. They say you really need to use an oil for a couple of weeks to see the benefit and over the last couple of days my face does feel a little smoother and softer.
Good shaving,

Friday, March 11th

Razor: Edwin Jagger DE86
Blade: Gillette SharpEdge (Yellow)
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Irisch Moos
A/S: Acca Kappa Cedro after shave splash

Another excellent shave. The Edwin Jagger DE86 suits me well and I always get a great shave from it. The Acca Kappa Cedar (Cedro) aftershave is quickly becoming a favorite. Although it is called Cedar, the scent is actually a combination of many things and I barely detect any cedar. That being said, it is very pleasant and a good year round aftershave. There is a bit of castor oil added to the mix (although not as much as in Musgo Real) and I find the skin conditioning properties to be excellent. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

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

Loving the Proraso splash aftershave! Smells great! No nicks or weepers. As always, the 7 O'Clock yellow really came through with the SA.
