Monday AM 10-29-2012

Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 2/1 Finest (22/48)
Williams Golden Yellow shaving cream (vintage)
Wilkinson Sticky
Iridium Super (4)
Abercrombie & Fitch Woods aftershave balm (vintage)

A great shave again. The Finest lived up to its name. The Williams cream was a little slow to get started building lather, but then it shifted into a higher gear and produced copious amounts. I didn't really like the Lemon Pledge odor, but it wasn't overpowering, and the cushion and glide were fantastic. It left my skin as soft as I've ever felt it. The IS continued to cut very smoothly, and the Woods balm was invigorating and soothing. All in all, wonderful.
