    The More for You SS works well for me though it does have a strong Arko like scent. I don't mind that at all. All the parts seemed to like each other and a fine shave was had. My face is happy. [​IMG]

    Shave of the Week Starting 8 November 20221

    SNMIRN razor
    Voskhod blade
    WD Synthetic brush
    Seaforth! Heather SS
    Osage Rub/Witch Hazel w/aloe
    Seaforth! Heather A/S Toner

    What a delightful way to start the week. Love the Seaforth Shave Soaps, they lather easily and well, smell divine and work so very well for me. The SNMIRN razor is such a surprise in that it shaves me closely, easily and very comfortably. It really is a bargain as I only paid $9.99 shipped to me. Not sure how long the magnets that hold the head together will last but I'll enjoy it till they quit. So all is well, my face is happy & ya'll need to go enjoy your day [​IMG]

    Last week was tough, had to have lower back surgery fusing L4/L5/S1 and assorted other stuff while the surgeon was in there. So shaving wasn't high on my list, pain killers were though. Anyway, back at it now and glad about that. All the parts liked each other a lot and a fine shave was had. My face is happy AND, according to the wife, handsome. Lucky me that she thinks so. Now go enjoy your day folks [​IMG]
