Saturday

Moss scuttle
Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Somerset Duke 2 Pure brush
Rose of Bulgaria shaving cream (thanks, Teiste)
Feather AS razor
Iridium Super blade (1)
Armani Acqua di Gio aftershave balm

BBS. The Feather/Iridium combination is great; I'm now somewhat sorry I sold off most of my Iridiums. The Duke did a good job and felt pleasantly scritchy, and the Rose cream, while not quite up to the standards of high-end English creams, provided good glide. Overall a great shave to start the weekend.

Saturday, December 17th

Razor: GIBBS Click Pen Adjustable
Blade: Gillette Yellow
Brush: Simpson Douglas
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Lavanda (new formula)
A/S: Alt Innsbruck

Another excellent shave. I think the GIBBS razor has become my favorite...it always does an outstanding job. The Lavanda cream was a treat to use producing a dense lather that was both very slick and protective. A splash of Alt Innsbruck and I feel great!

Brought out the Red Tip after a >year hiatus. I had cleaned it up for possible sale but with market prices plummeting decided to hang on to it.

Pairing it with my last Rapira, I got a very good (and careful) shave.

Kent BK4 and Tabac.

Generous, stingless, splash of Pinaud Bay Rum to celebrate.

Sat, Dec 17
Brush: Vie-Long Horse
Soap/Creme: Arko
Razor: German Open comb travel razor (unbranded)
Blade: Gillette Goal
Pre: Shower
Post: Witch Hazel
Hair Groom: Gabel's Pomade
Result: The Arko and vie-long horse made a great lather together. it was especially rich and protective. it took a twinge longer than usual, but the results were first rate. the razor is based on the Gillette OLD (one of my favorite vintage razors), and was pretty good, but the razor was milder than the old. This yielded a less close shave and less beard reduction than an ols style, btu also a very gentle shave, a bit like a tech. I find the tech ( and, I think, this travel razor) too mild, but it may well be perfect for those who like extra mild razors, but dislike how they clog up. That isn't me, so if, after a blade change it still tests too mild ( which it probably the case), then I will probably give it to a friend who uses mild razors. Good shave day overall, though. I wanted a fairly gentle shave, and got one.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Long Handled Progress
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Simpson Emperor 2 Two Band Super
Cream or Soap: Cyril Salter Hard Soap
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Alt Innsbruck Splash

An excellent Sunday shave today. I decided to face lather this morning, something I seldom do. The Emperor did a nice job of that and the Progress/Astra combo effortlessly mowed off the stubble. A splash of Alt Innsbruck provided a very refreshing finish and I'm ready for the day.
