Geo. F. Trumper´s Spanish Leather Shaving Cream
Simpson Tulip 2
Edwin Jagger DE86
C&E Sienna Aftershave Balm

First go with the Spanish Leather. The cream has all the hallmarks of Trumper´s creams. I find the scent very nice and comes across very nice in the cream. It´s not stong at all and lasts the whole shave.

Gillette 1950s superspeed razor

Gillette Platinum Plus blade (shave #2)

Somerset Simpson Keyhole 3 Best

T&H Ultimate Comfort SC



Floris No.89 EDT

it is a rare day indeed when i decide to use an alum block post shave. i like the feeling it gives at the time but it seems to lead to irritation of my skin later in the day for some reason, even though i make sure to rinse it all off thoroughly. i don't think i'll be using it again any time soon.

iKon Bulldog Deluxe, closed comb
Gillette Platinum (2)
Arko Moist cream
Vulfix 514 boar
Florida Water

A much superior shave to my Saturday attempt. Same blade, different razor. My conclusion is that the Jaggerooney is NOT my friend.

Valentine's Day!

Prep: Hot shower
Soap/cream: Portman Square English Style Cream - Gin & Tonic
Brush: Ever-Ready C40
Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable I-2 birth year/quarter, (5)
Blade: Super-Max SS (3)
Cold water rinse
Dickinson's Witch Hazel
M&L Florida Water

This morning was the first use of the Portman Square English Style Cream, in the Gin & Tonic
scent that I received from Phil @ BullGoose. After trying the other two scents of this "croap",
I'm really getting the hang of getting a good lather from it! Face lathering with a soft brush (my
Ever-Ready C40 is the softest I have) seems to be the way to go, and while it doesn't provide
luxurious lather, it's still good. But this cream really shines when it comes to slickness - wow!

Touch-up was a breeze after my 3 pass shave, due to my face being really slick afterwards - and
rinsing was quick, too. The Gin & Tonic scent is great - you can really discern the juniper/citrus
in it! It felt a little "hot" on my face, though it didn't leave any lasting signs of irritation. For me,
the Tropical Coconut scent that I tried last week is a better match for my skin type, but YMMV...

Overall, the best shave I've had in a while - and the Florida Water was a great way to top it off!
