    Soap: Razorock Lavender [​IMG] - nice scent with excellent lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi wolf whiskers 24mm synthetic- great brush that will lather any soap & cloud like soft tips.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.

    Cold Water Rinse
    Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #18
    Gem Micromatic Clog-Pruf
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    CWR
    Osage Rub

    Today is Day 14 of SEptember. Up for the challenge today is my Gem Micromatic Clog-Pruf.

    The Fine Snake Bite Shave Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #18 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gem Micromatic Flying Wing razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    This combination of of Snake Bite and Osage Rub will leave you weeping (in a good way). A most awesome combination for Menthol Monday.
