Monday, April 16, 2012

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: 1956 Gillette Red Tip Superspeed
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two-Band
Soap or Cream: Proraso Classic Cream (old formula)
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel
Wesley & Scott Lavender Balm

Another great shave from mostly out of production shaving products. Of the products used, only the MRGLO pre-shave soap, Dickinson's witch hazel, and Astra Superior blades are still in production. I am assuming that the old formula Proraso is no longer being produced, now that the reformulated version is on the market.
