    No coffee yet, I'll get some when I hit the road.
    Proraso Pre-shave balm
    Lord Tech w/ Lord Platinum (D4)
    Omega travel brush-face lather
    Palmolive Stick
    AG-Proraso ASB

    A fine three pass shave with one touch-up spot on the jawline. Easily DFS. I got up early for a nice relaxing shave, and was justly rewarded.

    Pino Silvestre EDT

    Guys, read my review of the Derbylux cream, and you will see how wonderful it is. Better still, buy some, and get ready to enjoy some great menthol cooling. The Personna blades are actually better than I had originally first thought - today's shave was even better than DFS. It was BBS! ;):biggrin:

    Sweet Jeff! I can't wait really. Kinda scared, like the way I was before I tried the slant. It is just such a departure from what I've ever seen.

    Friday's SOTD:
    • EJ DE89L
    • Van Wilder SS
    • Vintage Taylor Made blade for 1 pass. Way too tuggy. Gillette Super Thin Platinum for 2nd pass.
    • Omega 10048
    • Home boosted AV musk
    Even with the failed attempt by the vintage Taylor Made, all turned out well. Not blissful, but it'll the cart days ;)

    3.5 outta 5 blades, tap the gong with your fingertip as you walk by, nearly out to Mars DFS. ;)
