Shave of the Day: Friday Night, 15 September 2017

Shower
Mehaz Safety Razor
Gillette Silver Blue Razor Blade (Pass I)
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade (Pass II)
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Omega Shaving Cream
No immediate aftershave, but/though, I did apply some Arko Men Aqua Aftershave Balm, a few minutes later

This was a great shave. A very informative shave, at that. One thing, I learned, for certain, and, that is, which razor blade to use, every morning. I have decided, on the Rapira Swedish SuperSteel, for my daily use, and, the Gillette Silver Blue, every Friday, and, maybe, more often. Also, even though I waited several minutes, after my shave, to apply the aftershave balm, it still burnt, my skin. So, there you have it. It feels good, to be back, in old habits. I reached the same conclusions, a few years ago. Now, it feels like I am back-on-track. It has been a tough week, so, this shave really picked up, my spirits. Happy Friday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Sunday Evening, 17 September 2017

Pre: Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Razor: Mehaz Safety Razor
Blade: Astra Superior Stainless
Brush: Semogue Excelsior Texugo Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Shaving Cream: Derby Lemon Shaving Cream
Bar Soap: Veleiro Sabonete
Shaving Tonic: Fine Accoutrements Santal Absolut Aftershave
Post: Aveno Lotion

This was a good shave. It was relaxing, and, stimulating, at the same time, for my face muscles/skin. I, really, enjoyed this shave. The Lemon scent, from the Derby cream, quickly, filled the bathroom. I found it a bit strong. I thought the Santal Absolut would be a good match. I had been thinking, about this shave, since I posted the last one. The interesting combination, of scents, left me relaxed, and, ready, for bed, on a Sunday Evening. Happy Sunday, and, Happy Shaving!
