Shave of the Day: Thursday Evening, 5 October 2017

preparation: Proraso Pre-Shave Cream (my friend, from Italy)
razor: Merkur 38C Safety Razor
blade: Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Stainless
Lathering Process: Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, applied by hand, brush, and, hand & brush.
brush: US Made Badger Brush
soap: Derby Menthol Shaving Cream
bar soap: Veleiro Sabonete
aftershave: Akro Men Aqua Aftershave Cream


Now, this was a really good, relaxing shave. The good lather was needed, after a hard day, of working. I worked from 6:00 - 17:30 (5:30 PM, for you Yankees). The lather could have been better, but, I was afraid of adding too much water. Squeezing the lather, from the brush, into the bowl, and, then applying it by hand worked much better than building the lather, directly, on my face, with the brush. This was a brilliant discovery.
