    nox.jpg 444_gel_01-340x340.jpg Booster-Mosswood.jpg I have to catch a very early flight to New York City for a business trip Monday morning so I'll start off the thread now. I'll be back tomorrow evening at around 5:00 PM.

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/new Rapira
    Noxzema SC :love055: :love055: :love055: :love055: :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing:
    Lubriderm unscented moisturizer
    444 AS Balsam :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Booster Mosswood AS :love055: :love055: :love055: :love055:

    For this shave I am more interested in a traditional and really "old-school" theme, so after the 444 balsam, which we all know is a real face-freezing skin soother, I want to use the Mosswood aftershave which is so nice and barbershoppy-scented. I cannot point out enough how much I LOVE the Noxzema cream - the only reason I don't use it more often is because I know myself - I'll use up all the tubes I have in record time, and there is no way to ever get it again. ;) :D

    Monday 4th June

    Hot Shower and Facial Scrub
    3P Pre/Post shave cream
    Kai Captain Excelia (Japanese Style)
    New Forest 2222 HMB Silvertip
    Lea Menthol Shaving Cream
    Alum Block

    Shave 10 today with the Feather Super Professional Blade. I had to work at it a little more.... but I managed a very high end shave with two passes and a touchup. I think it will be something new tomorrow as the blade was starting to drag a little towards the end.

    Monday - Injector Week Day 1


    Injector (G)
    Schick blade
    Penworks Finest

    The G type injector was amazing! It seemed less harsh than the E, but has a bit more bite than my L-type and Feather injectors. :) It was a true quick 2 pass, I was done in a matter of minutes. ....what a great razor! Thanks Justin! :)

    A DFS in three passes, with some additional light buffing and touch ups below the jawline and on the neck. I keep telling myself to put down the SE's for a while and use the DE's, but it is hard to do when I get such an effortless shave.

    Razor: 69 Slimline Gillette Adjustable (set on 8)
    Blade: Sharp (3rd use)
    Brush: Semogue 830
    Cream: Proraso Green & Williams (ultra-lather)
    A/S: Alum Bar & Cold Water Rinse
    A/S: Aqua Velva Ice Blue

    I got a DFS with a little razor burn, no weepers or nicks, 3 uses is all I can get out of this blade. I am still working on my ultra-lather technique. This morning’s lather was exceptional, thick and rich, with a good amount of lubricity.

    Prep: Cold water rinse
    Lather: RazoRock Zi' Peppino - ultra face lather
    Brush: Semogue OC 2-band
    Razor: Gillette Single Ring head*, Merkur 23C handle
    Blade: Voskhod (1); 3 passes
    Post: Cold water rinse

    Cold water shave before my shower as a test. I'm quite pleased with the results and will continue to explore this further. The Old was better than I thought it would be, but didn't shave me as close as I'm used to. Tomorrow I'll use a razor that I'm a bit more familiar with and see how the pre-shower shave goes.

    Shave Cream: Devon and Spencer "Spice" sample (Thanks Garrit)
