    After a shave with Ingram cream (Egyptian version) and a little Diana Sport Menthol Balsam, your skin will take a few hours to thaw out. Both of these items are ultra-frigid! ;) :D

    Monday, July 11, 2011

    • Prep: Hot Shower, Noxzema Original Deep Cleansing Cream, Home-made pre-shave oil, Hand stop & cork blade
    • Cream: C.O. Bigelow
    • Brush: Frank Shaving Fine Badger
    • Razor: Merkur 33C
    • Blade: Wilkinson Sword (1), 3+ passes
    • Post: Cold Water Rinse, Wally World Witch Hazel + Alum spray, Aqua-Velva Ice Blue, Hand strop blade
    Excellent shave this morning. Switched back to the Wilks from the Merkur Super blades. Wilks seems to give a more comfortable shave with less irritation, however, they don't seem to shave quite as close in the same # of passes.

    Shave Rating: I'm happy with it and can't wait to do it again tomorrow!

    Gem OCMM - Gem PTFE Stainless Blade (6)
    Ikon Old Type Bulldog - Voskhod (2)

    Simspon Chubby 2 Best
    Speick Stick / Cream Super Lather

    Boosted Superior 70 Bay Rum

    Started the first pass with the OCMM, but the blade was tuggy. Switched to the Old Type Ikon with Bulldog handle for the second and third pass. Finished with a little more irritation then I would have liked, but overall a very close shave with no weepers.
