Shave of the DAay (Day): Monday Morning, 18 September 2017

Clearasil Face Wash
Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
Omega, for Proraso Boar Hair Shaving Brush
New York City Landmark Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather
Edwin Jagger Cooling Menthol Shaving Soap
Veleiro Sabonete Bar Soap
Stridex Pad
Fine Accoutrements Fresh Vetiver Shaving Tonic
Proraso Liquid Cream Aftershave Balm
Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Aveno Lotion

This was a good shave. I like the shaving mug, better than, the shaving bowl. It made better lather. And, it was easier to control. All the lather stayed inside, of the mug. That was good. Much better, than the bowl. Now, I think I might switch to the Aloe Vera version of the Shaving Soap. Menthol is good, especially, in an aftershave, but, too much can burn. Happy Monday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Monday Evening, 18 September 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Safety Razor
Astra Superior Stainless Razor Blade
Stirling Fan Knot Badger Brush
----Hand/Face Lather, First Pass
----Hand/Mug Lather, Second Pass (NYC Landmark Cappuccino Mug)
Derby Lavender Shaving Cream

This was a fine shave. I love being back on a twice-a-day shave routine. I feel more relaxed, and, cleaner, when I shave. The humid, hot, and, overcast weather, today, made me want a nice shave. The good scent of lavender filled the bathroom, and, all of the calming/sooting effects people claim this scent has, is real. My mind was racing, before the shave. Afterwards, I am super relaxed. Happy Shaving.

Shave of the Day: Tuesday Morning, 19 September 2017

Clearasil Face Wash
Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
New York City Landmarks Souvenir Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather
Semogue Cerda Pura Boar Hair Shaving Brush, Red Handle
Edwin Jagger Cooling Menthol Shaving Soap
Veleiro Sabonete Bar Soap
Stridex Pad
Fine Accoutrements Fresh Vetiver Shaving Tonic
Proraso Liquid Cream Aftershave Balm

This was a good shave. Standardizing my morning shave has really helped me focus. I can, now, easily, see what needs to be tweaked. Yesterday, I thought I should switch shaving soaps, and, I intend so to do. I am going to switch to Aloe Vera, instead of Cooling Menthol. I am, really, glad I found these razor blades, again. This brand is my favourite. Happy Tuesday, and, Happy Shaving!

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Razor
Rapira SuperStainless Razor Blade
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Omega Shaving Cream

This was a good shave. I am super tired, and, this helped relax me, so I could unwind, so I can sleep. The good ingredient, of eucalyptus helped, to sooth my skin. I really enjoy this one. The great scent, of the shaving cream, filled the bathroom. The shaving tonic, for aftershave, did wonders. It is, really, a dark, and, intriguing scent. Happy Shaving, and, Happy Sleeping!

Shave of the Day: Wednesday Evening, 20 September 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Safety Razor
Rapira Supersteel Razor Blade
US - Made Finest Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Palmolive Classic Shaving Cream
Taylor of Old Bond Street No.74 Original Shaving Tonic Aftershave

Now, this was a good shave. Two passes, tonight. The first was against the grain. The second was across the grain, on the face, and, with the grain, on the neck. I really love shaving twice - a - day. In the morning, I am perfecting the ultimate shave. Once realized, it shall be my ritual, each morning. Every aspect will be the same, every day, once completed. The nightly shaves, however, give me the options of "rotating" products, and, trying new scents. Happy Shaving!
