Thursday, March 01, 2012

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: iKon OSS
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super
Soap or Cream: Portman Square Gin & Tonic "Croap"
A/S: Thayer's Lemon Witch Hazel, TOBS No. 74 Victorian Lime

I didn't have time to shave yesterday, so had a pretty good crop of stubble this morning. I chose the iKon/Iridium combo and the result, with the help of the Portman Square croap, of course, was a smooth, comfortable, and close shave. I don't like to miss a shave and feel much better after the situation is rectified--I should have added "VERY REFRESHING" to my description of the shave.
