    Williams Mug Shave Soap
    Jayaruh #302
    Hartsteel 5/8 Straight
    Family Dollar Spice AS

    My prep was just a cold water rinse. The Williams Mug Shave Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #302 synthetic brush. I did two passes with the Hartsteel 5/8 Straight Razor on loan from @Redfisher and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Family Dollar Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Here's my Saturday SOTD:

    L'Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Razorock Plissoft 26mm Monster
    Super Speed/Astra day 7
    Stirling Frozen Tundra SS
    Gold Bond Moisturizer
    Krampert's Frostbite AS Splash
    Mont Blanc Legend EdT

    Smooth as a baby's little tush - although the Astra blade was on its last day it still gave one last hurrah and really did the job beautifully. This Frozen Tundra is Stirling's second coldest soap after the Glacials and it's capable of freezing a man's face off. The scent is lovely, the lather is a pleasure to work up, and like all Stirling soaps it has fabulous post-shave care. The Frostbite aftershave lives up to its name - is it ever cold and it feels so good on the skin.

    Yes, my shave with What the Puck today makes me a believer. Great performance and CHEAP prices. Can't go wrong with these soaps.

    Also, I've been jealous of your time at Disney World! We were there in March and took our little boy for the first time. He loved it, of course, but my wife and I do as well. I've been itching to go back.
