    Dig the music. I believe Alice Cooper was next to me in line at Walt Disney World about 15+ years ago. I didn’t want to bother him but it looked exactly like him. It was late and he was taking his kid on a ride.

    Sunday Schick shave, Jan 30th 2022

    Razor: Schick adjustable M3, Mfg 1970-72, very well built design, works well, it could be classified as a unisex razor because of handle length. I get close shaves on the lower setting with a 2 pass shave with touch ups.
    Blade: Personna SS PTFE (5) excellent blade, very sharp, smooths out nicely, great longevity + predictable.
    Soap: Ach Brito Lavanda cream, nice mild lavender scent with other mild fragrances + excellent lather qualities.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Brush: Yaqi 2band badger with very good ergonomic handle, 1st badger bought in 2021, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, great scrubber + excellent lather painter.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
    Post shave: Ach Brito Lavanda AS with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizer lotion + scentless.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + 2 blemish weepers= Excellent shave with my Schick adj M3 with a Personna coated blade.

    You went all the way on that Men's Obsession. Course who am I to talk-when I get my recently ordered Agadir Men Hair and Body Wash, I'll do the same with Agadir products.

    I didn't realize that Proraso was Shaving FOAM. I wonder if it's a clone of Rise Superfoam. I'll have to investigate this, as there's a lot of Proraso users here.

    Cold Water Rinse
    TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #424 Synthetic
    Ever-Ready 1924
    Personna GEM SS PTFE
    Osage Rub

    The TSD Iced Lemongrass Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #424 Synthetic Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Ever-Ready 1924 Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Menthol Monday:

    A hell of a Grand Freeze!

    Stirling Mentholated Pre Shave Soap
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Super Speed/Gillette Platinum day 13
    Bundubeard Vanilla X 3 SS
    Prep ASB
    MSC Peppermint Latte AS Splash

    Three fantastic artisans contributed to this shave this morning - Rod from Stirling Soaps, Jaco from Bundubeard, and Fernando from Master Soap Creations. Rod’s mentholated pre shave soap is so moisturizing, it’s really cooling, and it leaves the skin feeling spotlessly clean. Jaco’s glycerine based Vanilla X 3 soap has such a nice scent, it lathers so thick, rich, and slick, the menthol sensation is so intense that it competes to any of the Stirling Glacials, and the skincare is excellent. The Prep gives me wonderful additional postshave care, and Fernando’s Peppermint Latte aftershave is witch hazel based so there’s no burning or stinging, it smells delightful, and it’s a menthol atom bomb. The Gillette Platinum blade is starting to dull out but I still got a terrific three pass BBS shave!

    Have a good week - be well and safe!

    Finished with a cold water splash. Nice shave this morning. It has been a while since I used this razor and my muscle memory is a touch off. It could have been closer, but ended up pretty nicely regardless. 2 pass, no irritation.

    Enjoy your day.
