Shave of the Day: Monday Afternoon, 6 November 2017

Proraso Pre-shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
Artisan Made Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Stirling Fan Knot Badger Hair Shaving Brush
PalmOlive Men Classic Shaving Cream
Tom's of Maine Morning Mint Bar Soap
Fine Classic Aftershave Fresh Vetiver Shaving Tonic
Suave Skin Lotion

This was a good shave. I have been under the weather. This was my first shave, since Friday Night. This shave felt good. Two passes, and, some buffing, left me feeling comfortable, and, smooth. I hope I can shave, tomorrow morning. It was weird, weather wise, here, today, in the Northeastern United States. It was cool, this morning, followed by rain, warmth, and, humidity. The shave made me feel better. The distinctive fragrance, of the PalmOlive, filled the bathroom. The Fresh Vetiver, at the end, complimented this, rather well, I must say. I am tired, and, sore, and, sick, so, I will be taking it easy, for the rest, of the day. Happy Monday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Tuesday Morning, 7 November 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
I Love New York Cappuccino Mug, for Building Lather
Semogue Cerda Pura Boar Hair Shaving Brush, Red Handle
Pré de Provence Shaving Soap
Clean & Clear Face Wash
Tom's of Maine Morning Mint Bar Soap
Wholly Kaw Aftershave Dark Vetiver Shaving Tonic
Arko Men Aqua Aftershave Balm
Clean & Clear Acne Treatment

I like shaving, in the morning. I think I like the Pré de Provence Soap. The Dark Vetiver, at the end, was perfect. An interesting mix, of scents, made, for a pleasant aroma, this morning. I enjoyed the morning mint soap, from Tom's, of Maine, but, I think I liked the Pré de Provence Shea Butter Soap, a bit, better. I would like to try their aftershave balm, as well. Happy Tuesday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Tuesday Evening, 7 November 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Rapira Swedish Supersteel Razor Blade
Artisan Shaving Bowl, for Building Lather
Omega Puro Tasso Badger Hair Shaving Brush
Omega Shaving Cream
Clean & Clear Face Wash
Tom's of Maine Morning Mint Bar Soap
Fine Classic Aftershave Santal Absolut Shaving Tonic
Suave Skin Lotion
Clean & Clear Acne Treatment


This was a good shave. I needed, this shave, after such a long day. It started out cool, then, got humid, and, a bit, warm. Then, came the rain. It started as a drizzle, but, it is now pouring down. The good cream helped my face, to relax. The scent of eucalyptus filled the bathroom. I used the Sandalwood fragrance, at the end. A good combination, of scents, on a dreary Tuesday. Happy Tuesday, and, Happy Shaving!

Songs Enjoyed: "Denial," "Music for Driving," and, "12 Miles of Sky," by Red Violet Red, and, "Frutta," by S.M. Nurse
