This morning's shave:
Pre: QED French Clay Facial Soap...probably becoming a staple in the routine
Cream: Clinique Shave Cream (tube)
Razor: Cobra Classic, Kai Captain Mild Blade (4)
Post: RazoRock Alum Stick
Clubman A/S
Clinique Post-Shave Healer
Clubman Talc, body and face
Lucky Tiger 3-Oil Hair Tonic
Nivea (from Germany) Black and White Antip/Deo roll-on
DFS+ with two passes and some buffing around the chin
Homing in on what will be the kit for my forthcoming trip to Philadelphia and New York City.
This should easily provide a balance between a close, comfortable shave and economy of space and time.
Enjoy Your Weekend

Soap from Aleppo - Semogue SOC two bands - Gillette Slim Adjustable - Polsilver #1 - Pre JASÖN - Shaving soap Martin de Candre - Alum block - Thayers Original Aloe - ASB Martin de Candre huile végétale Camomille - ASL Myrsol Agua Balsámica.

A very "country" shave, starting with the country music and finishing with the scents of the shave (rosemary, camomile, lavender). :-({|=

Sunday evening

Finished off the full puck of DR Harris Marlborough (30 shaves)
Rooney Finest
Muhle R41
Personna hu blade

That's it. Now I've got to choose another soap or cream for a few days until I decide which soap will be the next project to get used up from start to finish without going to a different soap or cream.
