    It's my pleasure to start things off for this week! :)

    Menthol Monday:

    Omega Wooden Handle
    Super Speed/Gillette Rubie day 6
    Gada Cool Mint SC :love008 :love008 :freezing :freezing
    Lubriderm unscented moisturizer
    Osage Rub AS :love008 :love008 :anifrozen :anifrozen
    Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui EDT

    I cannot believe I used this same blade for almost an entire week and gotten so many great shaves. I'll change it for tomorrow, however. As always, the Gada Cool Mint cream lathers and freezes like a champion, and the Osage Rub is in a class by itself. ;) :D

    Happy Monday From Outrageously Cold Florida!

    Hot Shower
    RAB Scuttle
    TGN Synthetic Re-Knot
    Klars Kabinett Soap - Thanks Phil!
    Star 3-Piece
    Sputnik Blade (3)
    Cold Water Rag
    Svoboda Vitamin F ASC
    Lustray Draggon Noir EDT

    4 Passes = 5 Blade, Off The Hook, Bang A Gong, Inter-Galactic BBS!

    Phil of Bullgoose sent me a generous chunk of the Klars Kabinett with my last order. The Klars is FANTASTIC soap and I will order a full size supply with my next order. On the Bullgoose website, the Klars is listed as having a rose scent, and maybe that is what I am supposed to be smelling, but it smells more like fresh clothesline dried sheets...which is fine by me. The lather whipped up quick and provided a fantastic cushion and plenty of glide for a wonderful shave. Plus, according to the website, $20.00 gets you 500 grams of soap, which in my book is a great value considering how great it shaves!

    Have a great week Ya'll!

    Razor: Jaggerooney
    Blade: Astra Superior
    Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super
    Cream: Proraso
    A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Proraso ASB

    It was 9 degrees F outside this morning, and I used Proraso? Yep, I like the stuff any time of the year, although I probably use it a little more frequently in the summer. The shave today was excellent and the Proraso balm provided a very appropriate finish for this cold and windy weather.

    Dec 13 and 14

    Dec 13:
    Hot shower
    Nyasha organic soap as pre-shave
    Merkur 23C/Wilkinson Sword #2
    De Vergulde Hand soap
    Phyto Expert Sensitive ASB

    Nice and cool! De Vergulde Hand is a fantastic choice! More I use it - more I like it! Thank you, Jeff!!!

    Dec 14:
    Hot shower
    Nyasha organic soap as pre-shave
    Merkur 23C/Wilkinson Sword #3
    Wilkinson Sword soap in a blue bowl
    Fitjar Miklagrad ASB

    I don't know if I like this soap. The lather is unstable with my water, but it feels smooth, gives great shaving and have some calming effect. I'll better try it 1-2 days a week until I finish the bowl... Anyway, De Vergulde Hand outperforms it in no time!

    Jeeze ... Audit prep is eating into my shave time! :(

    Monday - 4am

    Hot Shower
    Green Marvy Mug
    Omega Boar Scarlatti
    TSD Polynesian Red Wheat SC
    Lady Gillette Stars - Pink
    Super-Max Blue Diamond Platinum (4)
    Warm Water Rinse
    Hemp Pomegranate Mango Body Moisturizer
    Escada Signature Perfume

    So, 4am is not the best time for me to shave. I think I missed a strip up my entire left leg. :rolleyes:

    I do LOVE the brush that Jeff bought for me. The handle is nice and is easy to hold onto in the shower and the bristles will break in just fine.

    Have a great week everyone!

    Not a bad shave, though I've had better. Had problems lathering but I think it was because the product was cold, fresh from the mailbox
