Shave of the Day: Saturday Night, 30 September 2017


SSSSSSHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEE

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Merkur 38C Safety Razor
Ladas Razor Blade
Boots Brushless Freshwood Shaving Cream
Derby Menthol Shaving Foam
Veleiro Sabonete Bar Soap
Fine Accoutrements Santal Absolut Shaving Tonic

Now, this was a good shave. Boots Brushless Shaving Cream is a lie, just like all brushless shaving creams. After that, though, I got a good shave. The Ladas blade was smooth, as it cut through my stubble. The weather outside, today, was, finally, cool. I was able to wear a sweatshirt, for the first time, since spring. It has been a long, hot September. I am ready, for the autumn. The windy weather took its toll, on my face, though. The Merkur razor worked well. Happy Saturday, and, Happy Shaving!

Shave of the Day: Sunday Night, 1 October 2017

Proraso Pre-Shave Cream
Mehaz Safety Razor
Derby Stainless Steel Razor Blade
Artisan Made Lather Bowl
Derby Normal Shaving Cream
Wholly Kaw Dark Vetiver Shaving Tonic
Bump Patrol Moisturizer
Suave Lotion

This was a pretty good shave. I have decided, though, to switch back to my Merkur 38C, or, perhaps try a 34C. Tomorrow morning, I will try the 38C. If it works well, in all four directions, I will keep it. If not, I will get the 34C. Derby blades are always smooth. I really needed this shave. We had weird weather. It was cold this morning, but, hot, in the afternoon. The good scent, of the normal shaving cream, filled the bathroom. I splashed on some Dark Vetiver, at the end. An interesting combination of scents, on a Sunday Night. Happy Sunday, and, Happy Shaving!
