Shave of the Day: Tuesday Night, 5 September 2017

Mehaz Safety Razor
Gillette 7 O'Clock Sharp Edge Razor Blade
Semogue Excelsior Cerda Pura Boar Hair Shaving Brush
Pacific Shaving Company Caffeinated Shaving Cream
Pacific Shaving Company Caffeinated Aftershave Balm

This was an awful shave. Simply, terrible. It was, most likely, a combination of three factors: one, I am very tired, two, the hard water, in New Jersey, is even worse, than in New York, and, three, the shaving cream, itself, most likely, is just plain bad. I would like, to try again, with this shaving cream. I have been able to hand lather all creams, since moving. Now, I may just be too tired, to, properly, build a good lather, but, this was just disappointing. I will require a shave, in the morning, which is stupid, because of how hot it will be, in this place. I thought this shave would relax me. To be fair, the balm felt really good, and, there was no irritation. It simply took a lot longer, to shave, than usual, and, especially, to build the lather. I had to throw out the first lather I made. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.

Shave of the Day: Wednesday Afternoon, 6 September 2017

Mehaz Safety Razor
Croma Diamat Razor Blade
US Made Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Bump Patrol Shaving Gel
Bump Patrol Aftershave Moisturizer

Well, now. This was a much better shave, compared to last night. One small knick appeared, after I had finished shaving, and, was brushing my teeth. To my chagrin, these razor blades are made like Merkur, Timor, Feather, etc. I really dislike this trend. The razor blade should have equal exposure, on both sides of the razor. Anyway, other than that, it was a great shave. My hand lather technique really improved, from last night. I was sleepy, then, and, am getting sleepy, now. Okay, so, on to tonight's shave. The Bump Patrol gel really has a unique smell. It was a good match, for this rainy weather. Good night, and, Happy Shaving!

The soap and cream together made a great lather with just a slight touch of menthol.

Shave of the Day: Thursday Evening, 7 September 2017

Mehaz Safety Razor
Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless Razor Blade
Semogue Excelsior Texugo Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Lord Shaving Cream
Taylor of Old Bond Street No.74, Original, Aftershave Tonic

A good end, to a good day. My back hurt, a lot, but, I think I can get used, to the pain. Anyway, this really felt great, to remove the stubbles. Two passes gave me a decent shave. The scent of the shaving cream matched well, with the scent, of the aftershave. I am sleepy, and, need to go, to bed. Goodnight, everyone, and, good shaving!

Shave of the Day: Friday Morning, 8 September 2017

Dove Cream Oil Lotion
Clearasil Face Wash
Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Safety Razor
Kai Stainless Razor Blade
I Love New York Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather (RIP)
Edwin Jagger Cooling Menthol Shaving Soap
Semogue Cerda Pura Boar Hair Shaving Brush, Black Handle
Stridex Pads
Fine Accoutrements Fresh Vetiver Aftershave Shaving Tonic
Proraso Liquid Cream Aftershave Balm
Johnson's Clean & Clear Acne Treatment
Dove Cream Oil Lotion

Well, I have mixed feelings, about this shave. That mug was my friend. It broke. I have no shelves, nor, counter space, in my bathroom. I, now, want to install some. I had been keeping the mug, on the back, of the toilet. Well, today it fell off, and, landed on the seat, undamaged. However, before I could even roll my eyes, and, reach for it, the mug fell, again, on the floor, and, shattered. I had been using that mug, a lot, since I got it. It is (was) my favourite mug. Now, I need to replace it. No big deal, but, I still feel the loss.

Other than that, the shave went off, without a hitch. It was a near-perfect shave. The boar hair brush made a rich, thick, lather, from the cooling, mentholated soap. These razors will be, in my rotation, for a while. However, I think I shall use the Rapria Swedish Super-Steel razor blades, henceforth, for my morning shaves.

Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, and, Happy Shaving!
