    An accidental yet perfect software pairing for a snowy morning here in SE Pennsylvania. I customarily plan out the week's shave Sunday mornings and take the pics at that time.Little did I know my area would be under a Winter storm warning through Friday morning.

    I really like the Speick cream's scent and performance. Very soothing post shave feel.

    Cream: Speick
    Brush: Omega 10065 synthetic
    Bowl: $Tree salsa
    Razor: RazoRock German 37 Slant
    Blade: Personna Platinum (5)
    Aftershave: Aqua Velva Ice Blue

    Soap: Razorock The dead sea- nice scent with excellent lather qualities IMO.
    Brush: Yaqi Artic sky 24 mm knot, excellent lather generator, heavenly cloud like soft tips, nice gentle scrub & great lather painter.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on cleaned beard area.
    Prep: cold water rinse after each pass of 3 + pickups. WTG, XTG + ATG + pickups.

    Oh... It's easily explained: I am an idiot!
    These days I'm having more troubles with my eyes and I am easily distracted....

    I apologize...

    Thje Abbazia di Casamari is a balm not in the picture.
    The bottle looks like a Penhaligon's one because it's the Sartorial which I normally couple to The Ten! :D

    And... thank you!

    It's just standard foam from a can. It smells like Brut. Performs very similarly to Barbasol. Here are the ingredients:

    It's a gray February day even though, at that hour, I couldn't see it.

    When choosing soap in the morning, I get lost in the brobdingnagian amount of different bowls.

    Then... I always fall on the same ones.
    It also happens with razors.
    I'm making an effort to use the razor blades I have, but it's just an economic issue: wet shaving is mainly about saving money!

    And, saving money, I have achieved a very satisfactory epidermal smoothness and I'm spreading beauty and the fragrances that I prefer.

    I offer you a sleazy photo to immortalize the event...

    I was referring to this, which apparently was not a shave soap...
