18 March 2023 Today's set up: Growth: 2 days. Had to skip a day, y'day was busy. Lather Bowl: None/ thought I would face lather today. Not a great success. Brush: Old Vulfix, soaked 10 minutes, shook dry and squeezed dry, probably too dry. Razor: Gillette Tech Aluminium Blade: Feather (2) Face Prep: Hot Water Soak x 3 Pre shave: Proraso Pelli Sensibili Cream/Soap: MWF was calling this morning. Post Shave: HWR, CWR, Thayer’s. Aftershave: Old spice to the face, nice bit of zinging. Scent: Who is Elijah Passes: 3 passes. 1st pass: WTG, XTG one way, then XTG the other in a chevron pattern to try and get the every-which-way growth in the cheek areas mowed down faster. Seems to work OK, will use this again next time in the 1st pass. N-S in the neck area seems safe enough. 2nd pass: overall XTG top lip outside in 3rd pass: top lip inside to outside, A whole sequence of touch ups needed esp where the growth to the right of the AA is horizontal. Frustrating area to get smooth. Long leisurely w/e shave. Results: Overall Super smooth. Impression: Feather (2) still doing its job. I have a feeling the light Tech is not the best for me for a 2 day growth with a light razor. Tempted to press harder but didn’t. Squeezed the brush dry before loading the MWF. Should probably have left more water in and loaded longer. Got some dry snow flakes while lathering…too dry…razor started dragging towards the end of the 1st pass. Back to the MWF added more lather, dipped in water and carried on with the 2nd lathering and 2nd pass. Will see if I will be able to use the Feather a third time, maybe with heavier razor. Have a great weekend everyone.
