Shave of the Day: Monday Night, 30 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
Artisan Made Lathering Bowl
Stirling Fan Knot Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Taylor of Old Bond Street Aloe Vera Shaving Cream
Fine Accoutrements Santal Absolut Shaving Tonic

This was a fairly good shave. I had not shaved, since Friday Night, and, I owed myself a shave. This felt, really, good. The weather was raining, all day yesterday, and, this morning. This faded to sunshine, and, wind, with high gusts. My face needed, this shave. The good scent of sandalwood seemed to capture the mood. The music soothed my nerves, and, made me feel, at peace. The cream was new, to me. It took a bit more, than I thought/remembered it would, to make a great lather, but, I got there. I prefer regular/bulb knots to the fan knot. I have decided to, always, use a Rapira Swedish Supersteel razor blade. I deserved a good shave, and, I got one. I need to work at making the angle consistent. Happy Monday, and, Happy Shaving!

Songs Played: "Operator," by Tres, "Pain," by Boy Harsher,and, "Plastic Mind," by Dead Husband.

Shave of the Day: Tuesday Night, Halloween, 31 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel 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 Green Vetiver Shaving Tonic

Well, I was going to skip tonight's shave, for the holiday, but, then there was a terrorist attack, and, I needed to calm down. At least eight people were killed. No songs played, in their memory. The Green Vetiver smells like aftershave should smell.


Music Played: Silence, in memory of the victims, of the terrorist attack, today, in New York.

Jack, I see that you use the Cremo Cooling shaving cream. I have seen it on the shelves in local Target/Walgreen, etc., and am curious to hear your thoughts on the performance as a brushless shaving cream. How's the cooling effect?

Shave of the Day: Thursday Morning (Late Upload), 2 November 2017


Pre-Shave: Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Razor: Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Blade: Rapira Swedish Supersteel
Mug: I love New York (I <3 NY) Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather
Brush: Semogue Cerda Pura Boar Hair Shaving Brush, Red Handle
Soap: Erasmic Shaving Soap
Face Wash: Clean & Clear
Bar Soap: Pré de Provence Shea Butter
Shaving Tonic: Wholly Kaw Dark Vetiver Aftershave
Shaving Balm: Proraso Liquid Cream Aftershave

This was an alright shave. It would have been better, had the shaving soap been the right colour. I am going to banish all unsatisfactory soaps, from my bathroom. Maybe now, maybe, in a few weeks' time. Anyway, the lather was good, the smell was average, and, the face feel was normal. The real stand-out is the Dark Vetiver Shaving Tonic. This is my new signature scent. It was, for a while, then I switched. Now, I am going back, to it. I love it. Happy Thursday, and, Happy Shaving!
