    A new month. Summer is here.
    Adjustable Friday's Shave

    Proraso Pre Shave
    LaToja Shave Stick
    Jayaruh #292 HMW Badger
    Gillette Super 84
    Astra SP
    Thayer's Peach WH
    Tabac AS

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The LaToja Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #292 High Mountain White badger brush. I am really liking the LaToja Shave Stick. It is very slick and lathers easily. I did two passes with the Gillette Super 84 Razor with an Astra SP blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse, I finished off with Thayer's Peach WH and then Tabac AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    well shux, I just did my shave plan for tomorrow, forgetting that it will be a new month: I'll make it official here:

    prep-Dial 4 Men Bodywash(Sub Zero, Fresh Reaction)in shower
    shave-Barbasol Original
    razor-C'est la Sensore Deux Plu Pivote DisposeABLEment par Gillette
    Apres-Resage-Clubman Gent's Gin*

    This will be the first "Humidity" test for the Gent's Gin. That kooky guy in the video said GG is the only one of the 3 ""Clubmen Reserve" newbies that is best in the summer. Let me add by saying that he's probably right, but he sure didn't sound as dignified as, say, the men doing the old Original Rise ads.
