    I decided if I was going cold water shaves, might as well freeze the face. Great shave this morning!

    MICROMATIC MONDAY

    During the month of February and March I participated in testing for a new soap base by Lakewood Soap Company. The testers were given three different samples to test and present a review of each. The soap featured in today’s shave was given as a thank you by Linda Morris for my participation in the testing. The scent of the soap is a mixture of passion fruit, jasmine, ginger, citrus and tropical florals.

    The MMOC did the job with the usual three pass shave without incident.. I am super smooth and ready for the day with the Yutes.

    Have a great day gentlemen.

    Happy Monday Everyone. Even though I feel more rested after a three day weekend, I really need a longer vacations to unwind. I should be able to finish the La Toja shave cream this month. Three passes and touch ups caught the baby with ease. I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday.

    Great shave Clint, looks like less than 5 days left for the cream.

    Thank you Dave. I think you are right on the cream. I will use it at least 2 days a week and maybe more until it is gone.

    TI straights do a great job John! I have a Spartacus and I have always gotten great shaves with it. Unfortunately, I don't bring it out to often. Have a super day!

    Super Menthol Monday shave Troy! I like Proraso Green, but it is a mild menthol soap to me and doesn't give me that freeze your face sensation. I use Chiseled Face Cryogen which arguably gives the coldest shave.
