Tuesday, September 4th

Razor: Edwin Jagger DE89
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Vie-Long Beehive Silvertip
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Spencer & Devon Spice
Scuttle: Ladysea Two-Piece Scuttle

Another great shave. I really like the performance of the Spencer & Devon shaving cream but the "spice" scent sets of a sneezing fit in me. :? A splash of Spanish Floid Suave and I am ready for the day.
