    Late night shave.

    Gingers Garden Rose Petals Soap
    Fat Boy w/Wilkinson Sword
    RSC PS Balm

    The Gingers Rose Petals soap was awesome. Very lightly scented and the same great lather and shave as all of her awesome stuff. I'm pretty sure I'm sensitive to the RSC products that I have tried. I think it's the Tea Tree Oils. Face is kinda burning, This has happened the last three time I've used it and never any other time. So, it get's PIF' d to my neighbor. He loves the stuff so he'll be happy.

    Col Conk Almond soap bowl lathered with Vie Long 12603 horsehair
    EJ 89dl with Personna Super Blue blade (3)
    3 passes, cold water splash and finish with Aqua Velva Ice Blue

    Nice shave. I like the Aqua Velva, but I don't like the bottle, too much comes out of the bottle. I probably won't buy it again just because I don't want to go to the trouble of transferring it to another container, there are too many other good aftershaves.

    I enjoy the "sting" of the aftershave. Most times I follow with an ice cube rub to close the pores. But, this morning I did not for whatever reason.

    Close and smooth this morning. Looking at a twelve day stretch at work so it isn't even hump day yet. Have a good one.

    L'Oreal Men Expert Facial Wash :love055: :love055: :smiley freezing: :smiley freezing:

    Pascale SC :love055: :love055: :love055: :smiley freezing:

    Aqua Velva Ice Blue AS :love055: :love055: :Animatedfrozensmily: :Animatedfrozensmily:
    Dolce & Gabbana EDT

    The lather from this Pascale cream is absolutely fabulous - so little product gives enough for 5 guys to shave. The scent is very nice also, but I wish the menthol effect was stronger because it's hardly noticeable. It's still a wonderful cream and I thank my dear friend Veli for sending it to me. Another dear friend sent me the Svoboda balsam which is so cooling and protective of sensitive skin, and that friend is our very own Dmitry. (Asd) The Aqua Velva felt icy and nice after this great BBS shave! ;) :D

    Prep: Hot shower, Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub, AoS Unscented PSO
    Brush: Beeline Boar
    Soap: VDH Original Unscented
    Razor: Merkur 41c 1904 Open Comb
    Blade: Bic Hi-Chrome Platinum (2)
    Passes: WTG, XTG, ATG
    Post: Cold water rinse, Alum, rinse, Dickinson's WH
    Cologne: Gigember Estragone by Dr. Vranjes

    I took extra prep time today, including waiting longer after applying the PSO and each pass's worth of lather. Really close to BBS today, though I see and feel minor indications of irritation. Caught one tiny weeper at the corner of my mouth.
