    Wednesday morning:

    L’Oréal Men Expert Facial Wash
    Yaqi 30mm Barber Pole
    Wilkinson Sword/Shark day 8
    MSC Ruby Forest SS
    CutiBase Moisturizer
    Musgo Real Classic AS Splash

    My first shave of June and I enjoyed it so much. Fernando’s Ruby Forest is such a lovely soap - it’s tallow based, the scent is absolutely magnificent - it’s a carbon copy of Dunhill Red Desire, the lather works up so thick, rich, as well as super slick, and the skincare is perfect. The CutiBase moisturizer is unscented and it works so well as a balm while the Musgo Real Classic aftershave smells so beautiful. I did two passes and I ended up so BBS!

    Happy June everyone - be well and safe![​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    Williams Mug Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #426
    Gillette Injector
    Personna Injector
    Lustray Spice After Shave

    The Williams Mug Shaving Soap lathered well with the Jayaruh #426 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Injector Razor with a Personna Injector Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Lustray Spice After Shave. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Neutrogena Men's Face Wash
    Mitchell's Wool Fat, face-lathered
    RazoRock Plissoft
    One Blade Core, Feather blade (1)
    WXA, buffing
    Cold rinse
    Harry's Post Shave Balm
    Stetson Cooling After Shave

    I've found that alum, witch hazel, and lotions/balms don't make much of a difference in my post shave. So I'm going to try a more minimalist approach. ("Minimalist" means "more room in the drawers for soaps and after shaves.") I will continue using balms I think pair well with certain aftershaves. Harry's goes well with Stetson, and Duke Cannon's Ice Cold Post Shave Balm pairs well with Aqua Velva.

    Well, what better way to celebrate the first day of June than to open with a Shave Den product! The hallowed Shave Den shop reopened its doors after a multi year hiatus a few months ago, but I was struggling with some health challenges. I’d bought several bottles of M-Bomb back when it was still readily available. A product that is far superior to Frost Drops IMHO. I was down to my last bottle. But what really works for me is the Glacial AS Peppermint TSD Splash which supported today’s shave.

    The mug shave was awesome and featured my Hoshi Tombo 8000. What a fabulous edge which just happens to be the perfect size for eradicating the Kevlar-like curled stubble on either side of the Adam’s Apple (AA). Two and a half passes finished with some flatblading around the AA put the baby to bed! My noggin shave featured the orange/butterscotch handled Durham Enders Speed Shaver which along with my Shake Sharps is my favorite vintage dome shaver. Two ATG passes left me velveteen smooth from neck to noggin.

    RAZOR: Hoshi Tombo 8000 (Mug) and Durham Enders Speed Shaver (Dome)
    BLADE: Schick Proline B-20 Injector (Dome)
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a heavy scrub with Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE Monster Aluminum Tuxedo Synth
    SOAP: Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by a rinse with Humphreys WH. Finished with the TSD Shave Shop’s Glacial Peppermint AS Splash.
