Friday morning:

Hot towel face prep
Vitos SIS
Rooney 3/1 SS
Muhle '11 R41
7:00 Yellow (4)
handcrafted bay rum

Shaving simply doesn't get better than this! No nicks, weepers, and I've even sliced one major scab in 2 (making it thinner) with no bleeding and on the chin no less. Before anyone gets the wrong idea, it was from our Amstaff pup- we play rough. This razor is absolutely magical and could very easily be my everyday razor. Except the other razors would get lonely and jealous.

Friday

Becker scuttle
Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Somerset Simpson Chubby 2 Best brush
Czech & Speake No. 88 shaving soap
Feather AS razor

A great shave. The CH2 is always a favorite, the scent of the C&S was a little stronger this time, and it lathered superbly.

Well, I had to do it.... Nope I didn't shave. For those that don't know, I'm never shaving again, but I had to find some kind of outlet. I find myself going through the very clinical definition of withdrawals. So I tried taking these pictures, I couldn't decide between the two by the way, to see if it would help to stave off my hunger.

Saturday, January 28th

Razor: Cobra Classic
Blade: Feather Professional
Brush: Semogue Caravela
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Trumper Limes
A/S: Trumper Extract of Limes

I know I said I was going to try out the Wilkinson Flip Top razor but I just cannot put the Cobra Classic down. I enjoyed another irritation free BBS shave. The Semogue Caravela, a new acquisition, is a keeper that works great with hard soaps.
