    Cream: Barbasol original
    Razor: Day Logic 3 blade cart (1 and only!)
    After Shave: Mennen Skin Bracer

    This was a test shave with gear that I thought would save time. I'll be traveling with SWMBO the next little while and sharing a bathroom prevents me from having a nice, leisurely shave. Man was I ever wrong! I hadn't used a cart in maybe 9-10 years. I had to do about 5 passes in spots, pressing hard, tugging, clogging.....what a drag in every sense of the word. Got a DFS (Darn Frustrating Shave). Actually took more time than normal.

    The Barbasol was nice and Skin Bracer is a classic, so they'll make the trip. The Day Logic will never be used again, at least by me. Maybe the wife, but I doubt it.
    I did come upon a Merkur 45 travel razor that I Forgot I had. I used it years ago on a trip to Ireland. If I recall, it worked just fine. I'll clean it up a bit, slap in an Astra SP and should be good to go.

    To me the only two good things about the Synergy Frost_byte soap are the ease of lathering and the powerful menthol effect. I don't like the scent, and the skincare is lacking compared to many other soaps I use, but since I still have it here in the house I might as well shave with it now and then. On the other hand, I love the Rubby Dubby Doo! ;) :D

    Razor - Gillette British Rocket - This is one of my favorite razors. It is made for my face. Smooth, nick-free shaves.
    Blade - Astra SP
    Brush - Barbear Classico Cerda. Look closely and you can see the ends splitting. Typical boar and it only gets better with use.
    Soap - LPL Apricot. An amazing scent like none other. Wonderful lather, slick, very comfortable.

    The Jeeves of Hudson Street Shaving Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #157 synthetic brush. I did two passes the Wade & Butcher Spanish Tip, I ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Lemon WH and then Pinaud Vinilla. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Shaving today with soap osma tradition, manchurian badger brush Zenith Foro Afeitado Clasico, razor Alberto Castro 8/8, after shave Pinaud clubman, aqua di Parma intense cologne. I had my doubts about the soap I released, but I liked it, smelling soft but nice, easy to foaming and sliding from the razor, good post shave feeling. Conclusion: Magnificent shave.

    Dammit, had I not selected the Synergy Frost_byte soap already for my shave tomorrow it would be Glacial Lemon Chill or perhaps Frozen Tundra. Well, look at it this way - for Sunday it'll be one of those two unless I decide on Barbershop. Either way it'll be a Stirling shave! ;)
