Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE*
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Trumper Violets (Tallow)*

Savile Row 3122 brush
Al's The Bomb Pro-Boy
Mühle 89 double-edge
Gillette 7 O'Clock Blue
C.O. Bigelow Dr. Galen

The cream is half Proraso, half Nancy Boy: lavender, peppermint, rosemary, eucalyptus. All EOs. Perfect. Incredible lather from Al's cream again.

Becker scuttle
Homemade Frankincense & Myrrh preshave oil
Somerset Simpson PJ 3 Best brush
Ralph Lauren Safari shaving soap
Wilkinson Sticky razor

A great shave. But it's time to change the blade, I think.

Monday, 11.7.11

Noxzema & Hot Towel Prep
Klar Kabinett Shave Soap
Simpsons Ehsan
Genco Master Barber 5/8
Neil Miller .. 30/50
Witch Hazel
Bloc Osma .. as a proof
Lucky Tiger Aspen AfterShave

The Simpsons Colonel never fit my chubby little fingers that well. I was lucky enough to have a little lathe time come my way, so I modified it near the base just a tad... A very large radius; so large it looks like an angle, gave me loads more comfort, and I like the look also, so it's a win-win... (God I despise that phrase.. They used to use it in work whenever we were due for a raise. Whenever the company would win-win... We would lose-lose)
Last shave for the Genco... Today will decide if I leave the edge as is, or return to previous form..
The Aspen is always a welcome finish...

Monday, November 07, 2011

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: 1967 Gillette Slim Adjustable
Blade: Astra Keramik
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two Band Super
Soap/Cream: Body Shop Old Formula Cream
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Trumper Marlborough A/S Splash

A great shave, full of nostalgia! It really is a shame that so many good shaving products, such as Body Shop old formula, have been discontinued. Fortunately, I have plenty of the Body Shop to last awhile--a few years ago, I bought several pots of the stuff on clearance for $4.00 a tub.
