Shave of the Day: Thursday Evening, 2 November 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
US Custom Made Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Palmolive Classic Menthol Shaving Cream
Fine Green Vetiver Shaving Tonic/Aftershave
Suave Advanced Therapy Skin Lotion

This was a nice shave. Two passes left me nice, and, smooth. I went against the grain, on the first pass, and, then, across the grain, towards the nose, on the second. It was great. I enjoyed the familiar scent of the Green Vetiver. It used to be called Clean Vetiver. It is one of his oldest, and, I think, best fragrances. These aftershaves are top-notch. Today, it was weird weather. We had cool temperatures, this morning, followed by a lot of sunshine, and, hot temperatures, in the afternoon. My face needed a good shave, in order to recover. Happy Thursday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Friday Night, 3 November 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Derby Lavender Shaving Cream
Pré de Provence Shea Butter Bar Soap
Fine Accoutrements Classic Aftershave Lavender Pour Homme Shaving Tonic


What a long day. I skipped shaving, this morning, because I had some irritation, on my neck, from the washcloth I used. Maybe, I am allergic to some fabric softener, which was left, in the machine. Also, today, I was assaulted, and, had to file a police report. The cop refused to give me a report number, he said someone would be contacting me. We shall wait, and, see. Anyway, this was a great shave, and, I needed it. Two passes left me feeling nice, and, smooth. The brush did a good job exfoliating my face. Happy Friday, Happy Weekend, and, Happy Shaving!

Were you able to defend yourself? I hope your assailant has some black eyes and a broken nose . . . I'm glad you are OK and were able to enjoy your shave. I hope they catch the person who attacked you! :(
