Monday, July 18, 2011

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Jaggerooney
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: EJ Best
Cream: Ingram
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Proraso Splash

This next week will be hot and humid (yesterday's high was 98 F), so Menthol Monday sounded especially appealing. It might turn out to be Menthol Week! The Ingram shave was very refreshing, helped by the smoothness of the Astra blade. I was tempted to splash on some Osage Rub, but opted for the more subtle and agreeable scent of Proraso.

Monday morning:

Horse hair brush Nr. 6
Schick disposable twin blade razor: ... B001JB8X6C
Thayers Lemon
Body Shop Razor Relief, 2008 formula

Normally I don't shave on Mondays until late in the evening. Today I was feeling a bit extra scruffy, so a quick 2-pass shave, just barely enough to get me through the day.
