Shave of the Day: Monday Morning, 23 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Derby Extra Razor Blade
New York City Landmarks Souvenir Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather
Omega, for Proraso Boar Hair Shaving Brush
Edwin Jagger Aloe Vera Shaving Soap
Pré de Provence Shea Butter Bar Soap
Stridex Pad
Fine Accoutrements Fresh Vetiver Shaving Tonic/Aftershave

This was a good shave. I think Derby blades are better, for the evening, than the morning. Other than that, it was a great shave. Happy Monday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Monday Evening, 23 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Treet New Steel Razor Blade (!!!)
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Stirling Fan Knot Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Derby Lavender Shaving Cream
Pré de Provence Shea Butter Bar Soap
Fine Accoutrements Lavender Pour Homme Shaving Tonic/Aftershave
Suave Lotion
Bump Patrol Moisturizer

Okay. So, the Treet blades are too sharp, for my skin. Today was weird. It was cool, and, breezy, in the morning, followed by sunshine, humidity, and, stronger winds. My face needed a shave. I chose the lavender scent. Well, the Treet blade yielded way too much irritation. And, of course, this was only visible towards the end, of the second pass. I have one rule: If the shave is bad, it should be, at least, informative. And, this shave was informative. I should stick with the Rapiras, all the time, I think. The good scent of lavender relaxed me, however, and, put me in an easy mood. Anyway, Happy Dreams, and, Happy Shaving.

Shave of the Day: Thursday Evening, 26 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Derby Extra Razor Blade
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Omega Shaving Cream
Pré de Provence Shea Butter Bar Soap
Fine Accoutrements Santal Absolut Shaving Tonic/Aftershave

Now, this was a good shave. I got good lather, from the cream. The good scent of eucalyptus filled the bathroom, and, the shaving cream helped my face. It was the first all the way autumn day, we have had, in a few weeks. Nice, and, crisp air. A bit chilly, in the morning, it got a bit warmer, but, then it started to rain, a little, and, the wind blew, a lot. My face needed a shower, and, a shave. I have limited my razor blade choices to two: Rapira Swedish Supersteel, in the morning, and, Derby Extra, in the evening. It had been since Tuesday, the last time I shaved. I played some songs, during the shave. Well, listened, actually. Happy Thursday, and, Happy Shaving!

Songs Played: "Goodbye Girl," "Another Nail In My Heart," "Up the Junction," "Cool for Cats," and, "Labeled With Love" all performed by Squeeze
