Bay Rum today. Great lather with the Stirling Bay Rum. I popped a new Gillette Silver Blue into the NEW SC. Great smooth, close, and nick free shave. I finished with Krampert’s Bay Rum. My face feels great!
I felt drawn to Proraso Red today, and I was rewarded with a smooth easy shave. The star today, though was the Shea Moisture balm. It goes on like a cream, absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin feeling smooth and comfortable.

Post: Arko Extra Sensitive
It's been a while since I've had a hot towel prep... lets hope it's a long time before my next one. I just can't seem to get a comfortable shave when I use a hot towel. I was looking forward to a hot shower, but someone started the washing machine. Guess I should have gotten up earlier.
I've missed using a straight. It was a close shave, but not the most comfortable. I am please to say the the Arko Extra Sensitive did pass the "that stuff stinks, don't use it again" test with flying colors. Looks like it will be getting a permanent home in the den.

Nice shave today. After a 72 hour week this is as far as I'm going today after I help the wife pick out some paint. I figure black and white is good at this point but....... no.
Happy Birthday RaZorBurn123!
