    Evening Shave for an Early Tomorrow
    Leisurely evening shave tonight after a hectic day at work. Nice hot shower and cap the day off with a decadent shave with my favorite soap (kicked up with TSD Mbomb!) and one of my favorite razors.
    Three passes, all with my right (non-dominant) hand. Not quite BBS, but no complaints. All & all, a great finish to the day.

    Have a great Thursday, Gents!

    Thank You We don't think she's going to ever recover according to what I am being told. But as Feisty of an Old Broad She is, she will not only recover but get up and walk out of that place, just for the spite of it!
    Also a belated "Happy Birthday".

    Being as I am going to go to Los Angeles (against my better judgement) tomorrow, to see my Aunt. (it's probably too late)
    I again used the WTG-XTG-ATG method. Being as it has worked well and produces a great DFS Shave. I did get a BBS Shave on this Morning. Also I did get another BBS Shave a few minutes ago. Again as before I did not have any "Nick's or Weeper's" using this method. I will continue using my Wilkinson Sword DE Blades until the weekend. I put in a New Razor Blade on Sunday. I did 2 passes this evening. Got a "Rudy Castiel Clean Used Car" aka "Rudy Castiel Clean Shave" aka BBS Shave!

    Not a very pleasant shave. My face has been messed up from using my Injector. I have some acne on my cheeks and it all started when I used my Injector. And the DE wasn't as enjoyable as I remember it being. Since I wasn't having fun, I stopped after one pass for a somewhat acceptable shave. The best part was when I put on the Myrsol. The Formula C is a violet scent and it smelled good and made my skin feel better.

    This shave was awesome and done so easily. The ISZ soap will always have a special place in my heart because of its great lather, skincare, and powerful menthol effect. The Penguin made my skin feel so frozen afterwards that I think it'll take a whole day to thaw out. The Rapira blade is still performing like it was brand-new. It's my number one blade brand and I'm hoping to always have them in my rotation. ;) :D

    I never doubted that there was menthol in the cream, and I'm sure it is a nice refreshing effect. Unfortunately my face just doesn't seem to notice menthol unless there is snow on the ground.

    SOTD August 14 - Straight Razor-a-thon

    Vacation shave

    Prep: hot shower
    Razor: G. Wostenholm and Son CANUCK I.XL
    Brush: Vie-Long
    Soap: Proraso White
    Passes: 2 (WTG, XTG)
    Post: Witch Hazel
    Proraso White is one of my favourite soaps.great smell, easy to lather, awesome consistent performance all around. Unfortunately my performance and the edge on the CANUCK was off today. Despite the tugging I was getting right from the get go, I was able to scrape (pun intended?) away with a DFS.
