    Frugal Friday
    Today is dedicated to inexpensive shaving. I went with Proraso Red, because to me it packs some of the best skincare into an inexpensive package. I also used my antique store finds: Rubberset 400 and Gillette New LC, both excellent performers for me. I used a Personna lab blue blade - not the cheapest, but the best value for me. I finished off with good old Aqua Velva Ice Sport, which I got on sale at my local Meijer for less than two bucks.

    Prep: warm shower, RR/HTGAM lime menthol
    Soap: Proraso Red Sapone Barba Dure
    Brush: Rubberset 400-4
    Razor: Gillette New LC
    Blade: Personna Lab Blue
    AS: Aqua Velva Ice Sport

    Razor: Gillette FB (F1) (6)
    Blade: Feather (1)
    Mug: Old Spice 1985 Cobalt Blue
    Brush: Erskine vintage (1947ish) Badger
    Cream: Castle Forbes Cedarwood & Sandalwood
    After shave: Dickinson's Witch Hazel
    Jack Black cooling gel

    Hot water face wash to get started. I have a light beard so this works for me. I like to shower after I shave. I like the smell of the Castle, woodsy which I like for a change from my Cella or TOBS coconut. The lather was great with just a thumb nail of cream. The Erskine brush was a great find NIB, and works well with no hair loss(on the brush;)) Only needed two passes WTG XTG on my face and WTG ATG on my neck. No music except for the blade. I'm do not like any distractions. I love the FB and it's ability to adjust. If I go 2 or 3 days before I shave, which is getting rare, I crank it up to 8 for the first pass on my face. I learned not to take that option on my neck. After shower, Witch Hazel, and after a few min Jack Black. I just received the 4711, and this was my first try. I ordered it because I liked the bottle and the history. The smell for me was like walking into a high end Truck Stop bathroom. Nice bottle! Great shave. Enjoy your day!
