Friday AM 07-13-2012

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Somerset Simpson Beaufort 4 Pure brush
Avon shaving soap (vintage)
Schick M1 Adjustable razor
Schick Plus Platinum blade (4)
T&H Ultimate Comfort aftershave balm
Creed Himalaya EdT

A very good shave. The B4 is slightly too scritchy for me. The Avon is quite good; except for the different scent I would think I was using Yardley. A nice shave to go into the weekend.

In travel mode at the health club:

Prep: 28 minute soak in swimming pool during workout shower, then shave a few minutes later.

Omega Sintex brush, 90018
Irisch Moos stick, face lathered
Slim Adjustable, I-3, set at 4 (first pass) then 3
Dorco ST-301 blade, 2nd shave
Target witch hazel
Nivea Sensitive ASB

Liking the Irisch Moos better than the Wilkinson Sword stick for travel. Now have more than twice as much (2 sticks) Moos as Wilkinson (1½ sticks), with a shot at one more stick of Moos.

This particular branch of the health club chain has two indoor pools, two outdoor pools, and some young, college age, ladies working as lifeguards with delightfully awesome tans.

Hot bath
TBS Tea Tree Face Wash
Ever-Ready 1912
Gem Blade [2]
