Tuesday night:

Razor: Gillette Tech
Blade: Treet Dura Sharp

Brush: Omega Sintex (white fiber, first generation synthetic?)
Soap: Tim's Soap

Lather made on top of the soap.
2 1/2 passes

Cold water rinse and Thayer's Peach Witch Hazel.

I haven't used this brush for a long time and I wasn't thrilled with it tonight, either. Nevertheless, it did the job and if it were my only brush, I could make it work.

Latha, Latha, LathaMan!

The Latha line by Barrister & Mann has quickly become my daily software choice. Amazing performance (I think my skin has a love affair with Argan oil) and wildly affordable.

Have you met LathaMan yet?

Traveling with Mastro Livi Perugia 13.12.14 and Alum Block

This is the razor I took with me this time, in my usual job travel. This is the latest Mastro Livi straight razor I added to my collection and I am very happy with it. This time, and after a very long time I did not do that, I wanted to use the alum block in my post shave routine. I don't know why, but I stopped using alum block some time ago and, this morning, when I saw it in my traveling shaving bag, I thought it was nice to use it again. And I remembered how I liked it, still not figuring out why I stopped using it. Sometimes it is very good to go back to the good and old habits!
