Shower or Shave (SOS) April 30 - May 6
Off to bed right after I post this... just got done deciding what I'm going to use when I wake up (in about ohhh.. 3 hours or so :mad: )
Proraso Pre-Post at end of shower
B&B Finest Ebony
'63 Fatboy w/ Sharps blade (Day 1)
Warm water rinse
Cold water rinse
Aqua Velva A/S splash
Cold water rinse
Anherb A/S Milk + Mama Bear's Summer A/S Milk Peppermint w/ Menthol ==
YSL Rive Gauche EdT
And on a somewhat related side note: I'm having a hard time using anything other than my Fatboy. Nothing gets as close, with as little irritation. Is it the weight of the razor? Is it the geometry of the head angle? Is it the thickness of the handle? Don't know. But something about it is magical...

MB Giovanni's Tuscan Memories SS
witch hazel splash
Aqua Velva A/S
L'Occitane Eau des 4 Voleurs EdT
I skipped the alum block today, just to see if there was any real difference. I replaced it with a witch hazel splash. The only thing I'm noticing is that my face doesnt feel as dry, and I havent used an ASB yet. Probably won't need to. I might be onto something here...
I forgot how much I love Mama Bear's original Giovanni's Tuscan Memories soap too. I've neglected it since I've gotten new toys like the Florena and St. James creams. The smell is perfect, and it lathers like no other.
Tweezerman Badger Brush - Poor thing got one whiff of the soap and started shedding.
Merkur Futur/Derby (3)
QEDman Vetiver Soap - Talk about a strong scent! I wasn't sure if I was going to like this one but it mellowed out after I put it on.
Thayer's Witch Hazel, Alcohol, Aloe Aftershave
Ogallala Bay Rum Aftershave - I threw this on about 20 minutes after the shave. I didn't need a balm.
Result: 4.6/5.0 BBS with no real backtalk from the Thayer's. The QED soap did a really nice job of protecting even with the Derby. The Derby's don't do as well as the Feathers. I'm going to have to revisit all the blades since I have my techniques down and can make some better evaluations.
I think I speak for ALL of us when I say......
"Thank You for your support" !!
Keep em coming.

Today was one of those shaves where everything falls in its place.
I think not having shaved on Sunday did contribute to a closer shave aswell.
- Brush Teeth -> Put on Scent from Heaven Shave oil quite some oil on the beard to start weaken it.
->> Get some breakfast going mind you this is 2PM when I was doing this all...

Sorry about not being able to color-coordinate the splashes to the bottles. All they had at my Target was blue, and white. So the Polar Ice was good to go, but the rest of them had to be in white bottles.
Glad they arrived safe and sound!
